Last week was the highlight of the year so far in Crested Butte, with a couple of solid storms finally dropping some much needed snow. With that snow came a lot of wind, however, so we were a little curious about wind slabs on bigger slopes. Also, Brittany had a school function at noon, so we really only had time for a quick tour. We settled on the shoulder of Schuykill, and found great powder despite the winds that accompanied the storm.

Like I said, powder…
Winter is definitely back, with cold temperatures, wind, and snow! We’re excited, and hopeful that this will mean a better, longer spring season. Stay tuned this week for on-snow ski reviews from SIA, and some hilarious photos from the Al Johnson uphill downhill race.
