Sock-it-to-me ridge finally “unofficially” opened on Saturday. By “unofficial” I mean that it was not announced on their website. There is a small gate at the entrance, that normally is not there. And at the gate there’s a sign that reads, “Open, for billy goats only!” The Sock-it-to-me ridge is full of rocks, surely. But, I rather enjoy it. Last year, the runs there were such a breeze to ski. This year, the challenge is back 🙂
During our backcountry tour on Saturday, we kept hearing bombing coming from the ski area. We figured they were working on Third Bowl. Correct we were– and it finally opened today. Here’s a few pics from our first run.
With the opening of Sock-it-to-me ridge and Third Bowl, Crested Butte resort is finally 100% open 🙂
