It’s no secret that Colorado is hurting this year, with snowpack way below average right across the state. In fact, in some areas, the snowpack is at the lowest levels on record, and average temperatures across the state are the warmest on record.

Crested Butte currently has a base of 37″ and has 75% of their terrain open. There is some good news though. If the forecast is correct, there is some snow in the forecast this week to hopefully make a difference and enable them to open more terrain.

Hopefully, there’s a powder day so we can get the less painful face shots we’re used to!
