Here is what to expect at both resorts for opening day:
Guests at Crested Butte can expect a banner break, lift line giveaways, free snacks, limited edition opening day posters, a DJ spinning tracks on the snow by Red Lady Express, and all-day happy hour specials at Butte 66. Wednesday, November 22, 2023, will mark the start of an exciting season celebrating CBMR’s famed steeps: the resort is thrilled to host one of six YETI Natural Selection DUELS in February, as well as the 50th Annual Al Johnson Memorial Telemark Race in March. Guests can also enjoy a brand-new restaurant concept in the Grand Lodge called Highlife Crust & Crafts, featuring hand-tossed pizza and draft brews.
At Beaver Creek, the excitement will be high with signature chocolate chip cookies all day long, a celebratory banner break, a live DJ and bloody mary bar at Spruce Saddle! The day will be capped off by the Beaver Creek Cookie Competition in Beaver Creek Village. While cookies can always be expected at Beaver Creek Resort throughout the season, the mountain dining team has reinvented what it means to enjoy a mountaintop culinary experience. Whether you’re coming to one of the newly named MICHELIN Guide Recommended restaurants, visiting the on-mountain fine dining cabins, or tasting any of the new signature lunch items across the resort’s ski-in, ski-out restaurants, your culinary experience is sure to make an impression.
