The Mountain: Crested Butte enjoys an average of 300 inches of snow per year. Opening Day this winter is November 25.
There's a go-for-it attitude that prevails among friendly, relaxed skiers and management. There's plenty of terrain for all abilities, but experienced skiers and riders will want to know that there are more double-black diamond ski trails than any other resort in Colorado.
The mountain rises dramatically from the surrounding plain, lending credence to its extreme reputation. But a peek at the trail map tells a different story. About 45 percent of the terrain is rated green or blue. The Gold Link and East River lifts serve predominantly intermediate terrain - some ten trails in all. All told there are 362 acres of intermediate terrain.
There's a new Adventure Park in the base area with ice rink, bungy trampolines, and climbing wall.
Beginners have a number of good, long runs to enjoy. The majority of beginner terrain is accessible from the Red Lady Express Lift, with Houston probably the easiest green after the learning terrain.
The East River Lift is now a high-speed quad which added four new trails and 15 intermediate acres to the mountain's terrain. A Bombardier Snowcat was added to the grooming fleet to ensure that even more terrain is groomed every night.
Single black diamond terrain is concentrated off the Silver Queen lift, where the runs are long and often bumped-up.
But the best skiers and riders head to the double diamond bowls and glades. Get there by turning right off the Silver Queen lift (for one area) or turn left and drop down a bit to the High Lift to access a second area.
The greatest expanse of truly difficult terrain requires riding the North Face lift, from where you can drop or traverse into areas that, while named, have myriad lines.
Perfect trip for me and my girls. Had a blast on the mountain, weather couldn't have been better. This beatufiul Condo was perfect and very comfortable. San Moritz has wonderful staff and great shuttle service any where any time. Highly Recommend!
Thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days in late February '09, after 13 new inches of snow the mountain was great from groomers to cliffs.
We enjoyed the Ariel tub in the master bath, fireplace, hot tub around the corner, sauna and a great dinner at Maxwells in town. Kitchen has everything you need. Although we didn't use the free shuttle, it's nice to know it's there, with very limited parking in town. Little things like a stack of hangers in the closets and great sound system for dvd/tv were a plus!
It was a great location for the dog too. Plus no lift lines. Ride the Peachtree lift up to ski down to the base lodge for tix (easier than walking), or pre-purchase. Mary at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. And the owners were great to deal with as well. Overall a great home-away-from-home.
San Moritz has its own complimentary local shuttle service, running from 8am to midnight during the winter. They'll drive you to dinner, the grocery store or to get your rental skis! If you really have the urge it's close to the laundry too!
