Top of the Town 2017: Sports, Fitness & Outdoors
5280 Magazine brings us the Top of the Town 2017: Sports, Fitness & Outdoors and it’s no surprise that once again, Crested Butte is recognized as a top town for outdoor activity. The Editor’s Choice, Crested Butte Mountain Resort, tops the list for Ski Resorts. How could we not get the top pick? In just a 10 day span in January alone, Crested Butte Mountain Resort received 101 inches of new snow. Visitors and locals alike enjoyed pow days galore! The epic snowfall kept our ski patrollers busy all season long. Over 4,000 explosive hand charges were thrown to trigger avalanches before they could be triggered by unsuspecting skiers. Their hard work and efforts did not go un-noticed with the opening of several zones on the mountain that hadn’t been opened in years such as Moosehead and Teo 2 Bowl. Ski bums, tourists and locals alike will be talking about the epic 2016/2017 ski season for decades to come. Be sure to check out the 5280 Magazine’s list for the Top of the Town 2017: Sports, Fitness & Outdoors. You’ll find everything from hikes and camping to yoga studios and running events. While Crested Butte was only recognized for our ski area, we all know what an outdoor mecca we live in. So be sure to get out the bikes, hiking boots, paddle boards and other summer gear and enjoy this wonderful backcountry backyard.
