Crested Butte Mountain Resort
From April 4-8, Crested Butte Mountain Resort is celebrating the end of the ski season with a series of events.
During the ski area’s Moonlight Snowshoe Tours on April 6, enjoy the thrill of snowshoeing moonlit mountain trails after being transported by a snowcat. The cost is $75 per person.
On the last Saturday of the season, watch costumed skiers and snowboarders attempt to cross the a manmade pond without crashing or sinking at the base of the mountain. Fun to participate in, but more fun to watch, the pond skim runs from 3:30 to 5 p.m. (onsite registration on the Butte 66 deck), followed by apres ski music featuring local band Buntron Smith at Butte 66.
Closing day festivities on April 8 will begin with an Easter egg hunt at noon in the Mountaineer Square courtyard, sponsored by the Mt. Crested Butte Town Center Community Association. Two bands, Mine Control and the Bill Powers Trio, will play on the deck at the mid-mountain Uley’s Cabin from noon to 6 p.m.
