                                                     CRESTED BUTTE RECEIVES ANOTHER MAJOR SNOWSTORM

  MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – January 21, 2010.  Naturally, more snow at Crested Butte Mountain Resort means more playtime for all!  As the snowstorms that rolled into the area early this week stick around and continue to drop white fluffy flakes almost constantly, skiers and riders are reveling by visiting powder stashes they have not seen yet this year—until now.  The prediction from the National Weather Service gives reason to believe that the snow won’t stop in the Crested Butte area any time soon, either.  With nine inches overnight and sixteen inches in the last week, many runs offer untracked powder or the option to carve new tracks on freshly groomed cruisers.

In the spirit of celebration, Crested Butte Mountain Resort offers an extra incentive to check the “pow cam” on

When six inches of snow accumulates, as shown by the gauging stake on the real-time mid-mountain camera between 4PM and the opening of the ticket office the next day, fifty lift tickets will go on sale for fifty percent off!  One person per day can get a lift ticket at that fabulous price when the resort hits the magic number six, so make sure to visit to see what the powcam reports, then head to any ticket office–don’t miss out.
