Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) has just announced its appreciation for everyone who skis or snowboards in Colorado, regardless of which mountain is “home”. From now until March 6, 2013 anyone with a Colorado ski resort pass can ski the legendary slopes of Crested Butte for only $59 per day. In addition, lodging deals are available, beginning at only $59 per person per night at the Grand Lodge and $79 per person per night at the Elevation Hotel & Spa, plus resort fees and taxes.
As snow stacked up at Colorado ski resorts recently, skiers and snowboarders renewed their devotion to the state’s signature sports. Absolving doubts that variable conditions were keeping skiers involved in other pursuits, Colorado Ski Country USA resorts were greeted with booming weekend traffic. The onslaught of new snow along with the opening of more terrain and a broad menu of creative deals from resorts made it hard for skiers and riders to stay indoors last week.
Parking in Colorado has its risks, as this poor damsel in distress recently realized after leaving her car unattended for a day a Durango Mountain Resort lot. The resort is reporting a whopping 22 inches in the last 48 hours. I believe it:
It’s snowing again in the mountains, and resorts across Ski Country are feeling the love from Mother Nature. The most recent storm plastered the Southwest with snow – including a 32-inch, 24 hour haul at Silverton – and left plenty of snow at other resorts throughout the state. It’s not over yet either, as more snow is in the forecast for the upcoming week.

When we arrived back at our condo after a fun day on Winter Park’s slopes, I stopped and marveled. Our front entryway looked like a bomb had gone off and the carnage was an onslaught of gloves, boots, helmets and jackets.
With a strong direction to create a more innovative and unique experience for guests, Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) has just opened the Coke Zero® Gravity BagJump as its latest amenity in the Adventure Park. The 50 feet by 50 feet by 11 feet deep bag is filled with air and acts as a safe and cushioned landing pad for jumpers, tubers, skiers and snowboarders.
BagJump™ is a versatile product that can be used all year round, from beginners to professionals, for Olympic level training or just for recreation; giving the feeling of “landing on a cloud” when jumping into it. In Crested Butte, the BagJump will act as a place for kids and adults to sled into on a tube and for skiers and snowboarders to test their freestyle skills. In the summer months, adrenaline seekers can free fall into the bag off an elevated platform.
“Adding the Coke Zero Gravity BagJump continues to fulfill our goal of adding new attractions to the resort for summer and winter months,” says Nick Herrin, the director of resort services for CBMR. “It is a safe, yet exciting experience for any age.”
The BagJump will be a part of the Adventure Park ticket for unlimited use and available for Platinum Season Passholders. The BagJump is now open daily from 1 – 5 p.m. Skiers and riders will be required to go through a safety course to receive a stamp of approval in order to utilize the BagJump on their skis and boards.
You have got some great moves. Really, you must. Because with the storms that have been pounding us here in Colorado, it’s clear that there must be some seriously stylin’ snowdancing going on…
