                                                   CRESTED BUTTE OPENS FAMOUS “EXTREME LIMITS” TERRAIN

  MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – January 24, 2010. The world famous “Extreme Limits” began to open today at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.  In addition to eight inches of new snow on smooth beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain overnight, skiers and riders are celebrating the ability to once again visit parts of the resort that offer some of the toughest in-bounds skiing in North America.  Characterized by deep snow-holding tree glades, exciting drops into soft landings, and truly challenging expert runs, the Extreme Limits terrain has been a draw for many years, highlighted by the resort’s history of hosting the World Extreme Freeskiing Championships for the past nineteen years.

Ensuring that the terrain was safe for skiers was the top priority of the ski patrol and mountain operations crew.  Although Crested Butte fans have been “chomping at the bit” to get to the expert-only terrain, “making sure that safety came first was essential”, according to Chris Corliss, Mountain Manager.

A great way to explore the Extreme Terrain is with Wendy Fisher, who will host a special Valentine’s  Ski Clinic, February 13-15 for those who “love” to ski, as well as offering private lessons and other ski improvement clinics throughout the season.  Fisher, a former Olympic skier and United States Extreme Freeskiing champion, is also a Crested Butte Mountain Resort Ambassador.  For more information on her programs, visit skicb.com or call 970-349-2251.
