Crested Butte Crush

(Last Updated On: March 3, 2014)

It’s kind of like Candy Crush, but instead it’s Crested Butte Crush. Either way, both are equally addicting. I’ll admit it, I’m addicted to both of the Crushes. But, the latter is far more rewarding and better fuel for the soul.

Crested Butte Mountain Resort has just been crushing it this year- a much needed change from two years of sub-par snow. This year, the ski area has been a joy with adequate snow and copious amounts of it continuing to fall allowing us to get out and challenge ourselves (perhaps even scare ourselves) on steep in-bounds terrain that is relatively easy to access – some stuff we haven’t had access to in the three years. This prepares us well with our spring season antics when we hopefully will be skiing this type of terrain in the backcountry as well. But, for now, I’ll stick with the Crested Butte Crush. I’m loving this game.

Here’s some shots we’ve managed to gather in between the killer powder days over the last few weeks:

    1st set is Toilet Bowl (Highlife), and the 2nd set is Sock it to me cliffs. Axioms? Of course. I’ve been on so many skis since I started skiing the axiom and not one matches up.

    That is cool you still love the Axioms……they must be like circa ’95ish. If you ever run out of them, let me know….I would give yours back. Not that I don’t like, but I just keep as an extra pair (they are a bit short on me).

    If I could get a 193 Axiom, I would ski more too. I still haven’t departed from those dimensions, I am all about the 130-110-120 (from Sanouks and Gotamas to 4frnt EHPs, I have kept right in that range).

    Super psyched for you guys to be having a banner year!!!!

Got something to say? We love your comments!
