Town Tidbits

The month of April brought quieter, warmer days to Crested Butte, helping to melt the 324 inches of snow we received during the record breaking 2016/2017 ski season. Crested Butte Mountain Resort had a busy Closing Weekend with the Land Shark Pond Skim on Saturday April 8th and Closing Day festivities on April 9th. We had plenty of warm, sunny spring weather but don't let that fool you, Crested Butte tends to get plenty of moisture in the month of May bringing us the spectacular wildflowers in June and July. Be sure to check out the 2017 Crested Butte Wildflower Festival. We look forward to the mountain reopening on June 10th. Click here for a real time weather report and trail information.

While the epic snow year and ski season we had continues to be the chatter around town, there were several other notable April events. April 1st was the Winter Chainless Downhill Race, Friday April 7th was the Flauschink Ball and announcement of this year's Flauschink King and Queen, April 8th was the Land Shark Pond Skim as well as live music from Denver based band Trout Steak Revival and of course, Closing Day on April 9th brought out many costumed skiers. Town is already gearing up and looking forward to another busy summer season filled with lots of fun activities such as hiking, paddle boarding and mountain biking with the lifts at CBMR opening back up on June 10th.

In the meantime, the May calendar is filled with off season activities including lots of live music. The ski area may be closed but there is still plenty to do in Crested Butte and the Gunnison Valley in the month of May.
