Crested Butte ski resort in Colorado is having such a good late season this year that they’ve decided to reopen their resort this weekend.
They closed on Easter Sunday for the season – or so they thought.
Crested Butte has Never reopened before. This will be a first for them and they are expecting 4-8″ of new snow this weekend. It’s gonna be a special weekend at Crested Butte, CO.
They’ll be opening the Silver Queen chairlift from 10am until 5pm. 155 acres of terrain will be open. Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for kids. 2013/14 season passes will work.
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. Given the great season and existing snow that still remains on the mountain on Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, CBMR will open its operations on the Silver Queen lift to service intermediate and advanced skiing and riding for guests.
The resort will run a limited footprint with the Silver Queen lift and the terrain that services the front side of the mountain and a total of 155 acres. No beginner or extreme terrain will be open. The lift will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days. Tickets will be $20 for ages 13 and older, children ages 7 to 12 will be $10 and, as always, ages 6 and under will be free. 2013-2014 Crested Butte Mountain Resort season passes, Peak Pass and Peak Pass+, will be honored, however CB cards will not, given the discounted ticket price for the weekend. An outdoor bar and grill will be open for guests for lunch and après.
