- March is Women’s History Month, and Crested Butte is celebrating in style with the Elan Women’s Weekend from March 22 to March 24.
If you’re planning on or thinking about attending the Elan Women’s Weekend, here’s the information you need to know about the event.
Who can participate?
While anyone can participate in the Elan Women’s Weekend, it’s generally recommended for intermediate to advanced women’s skiers. That’s because participants can demo the Ripstick Freeride ski, which is known for being an aggressive, epic ski for big mountain terrain.
What does participation involve?
- Saturday and Sunday Ripstick ski demos
- Full-day Saturday and half-day Sunday guided skiing by the Ski & Ride School
- Friday night welcome party at WoodStone Grille
- Saturday night apres party at Bonez
- Saturday lunch at Butte 66
- Sunday Lunch at Uley’s Cabin
- Discounted lift tickets
- Gift bag
Assuming you already have an Epic ski pass or Crested Butte lift tickets, you’ll pay $300 for a weekend of fun with female skiers.
In addition to having an excuse to ski the epic terrain of Crested Butte, the Elan Women’s Weekend is an awesome chance to learn from and ski with other female skiers. Between demo-ing skis and having almost two full days of guided skiing, you’ll refine your skills and gear up for the Extreme Limits terrain.
Plus, Crested Butte is having an incredible season in terms of snow coverage. Whereas March 22-24 last season involved a patchy base, this year has amazing conditions. The base and summit have an 87-foot snow pack, and another few winter storms have already been projected for March.
Experience Crested Butte
If you’ve never visited Crested Butte, the women’s weekend is an even better reason to go. With 80 percent of in-bounds terrain featuring a black or double-black rating, Crested Butte is a mountain where intermediate skiers get better and advanced skiers can soar.
