    Never in the history of Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) has the ski area re-opened the lifts for more skiing and riding once it has closed for the winter season.

Along with the re-opening, the resort is giving one more reason to celebrate: announcing 2014-2015 winter pass prices. Continue Reading

  • Dream On: Powder Lesson

    on April 13 | in Resorts, Skiing & Snowboarding | by | with Comments Off

    There’s no question, this year has been a remarkable year for Colorado ski resorts. The snow just keeps coming and coming, even in mid-April!

    Whether skiing steep lines at Aspen Highlands or the family friendly cruisers at Copper Mountain, there will be fresh tracks to be had across Colorado Ski Country today.

    If you’re lucky enough to hit a big powder day, you surely want to come prepared. While many people think that ski and snowboard lessons are for beginners, there are actually quite a few tricks and tips for intermediate and advanced folks to improve their game–especially when it comes to powder skiing. Instead of being sore and wiped out the day after, but instead, feel supercharged for another day on the mountain. 

    Here’s a dreamy snapshot of a powder day ski lesson at Ski Granby Ranch. It’s a worthy investment.

    When temperatures are on the rise, peel off some layers, bust out some good tunes, and let loose on the slopes!

    Ahhh…springtime in the Rockies! We love all the seasons here in Colorado Ski Country, but spring marks that special time of renewal, rebirth, and reawakening. Yet as splendid and striking as it is, it can also be a time of sheer agony for many outdoor enthusiasts.

    On the slopes, the snow remains soft and inviting under blue bird skies. The roads are clearing of snow and ice, and mountain trails are drying out and leading the way to sublime alpine splendor.
