Of snowcaves and alleyways
(Last Updated On: February 20, 2008)
Well, if you haven’t gotten the point by now, Crested Butte has some snow. A lot of snow. Record-levels of snow.
Even days after the last snowfall you can walk around the alleyways and find plenty of things that are still buried. They will be buried until June. Here’s some pics from an evening stroll.
I don’t know which is better: the “garage” that has been dug out of the snow for the car, or the house that is buried up to the second story in the background 🙂
Every now and then you see something like this, trying to make a feeble attempt to unbury the Crested Butte world. Personally, I say keep it buried. It’s pretty cool 🙂
The locals who decide to remain buried dig amazing snowcaves like this right in their own backyards.
This is the best room….
The room was even complete with a bearskin rug!
I kinda like snowcaves 🙂
