Ski lovers rejoice- there is still plenty of time to visit Crested Butte and take advantage of the last bits of ski season!
It has been decided that many of the ski and ride slopes will stay open for visitors to enjoy following a snowstorm that has hit the area and in anticipation of greater snow fall in the weeks to come. By the end of March, it is predicted that several feet of fresh snow will have fallen on the area, creating an ideal environment for spring skiing.
OpenSnow's snow report shows that Crested Butte has already seen close to two feet of snowfall this March, with another 15 inches expected over the next 10 days. There's no telling what good news early April will bring, but Colorado's resorts are expecting that all of the fresh powder will sustain the slopes until at least the season's end, if not beyond.
For 2021, Crested Butte plans to close on April 4. The ability to extend the ski season into April is exciting for resorts, which have suffered from the reduction in tourism this season, and is a gift to skiers who have stood by safety protocols and supported resorts through the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you previously missed your chance to visit Crested Butte and ski, then this is your sign to come visit now! Don't miss the chance to ski before the slopes close for the season!
