To improve the on-mountain trails for snowboarders, Crested Butte Mountain Resort will remove trees in the East River lift area to widen the space on tree runs for those who enjoy tree riding. The area of focus will be between the current trails of Double Top and Black Eagle. Crews will begin work in late summer to create an optimal intermediate tree skiing area.

The crews will also be cutting three new child-specific trails in the Painter Boy area. These trails will be about the width of a grooming machine and wind through the trees to give kids a “forest-like” experience. Ski School guests will be able to take advantage of the new trails and play opportunities on the slopes through this interpretive area of Crested Butte’s heritage and mining history.

Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) resorts have invested heavily during the off-season to greet guests with fresh looks for the upcoming 2013-14 season. The infrastructural improvements will create elegant, adventurous, and exiting experiences for skiers and riders, regardless of their age or ability level. Significant snowmaking and grooming additions, new large scale drinking and dining facilities, and luxury resort lodging renovations have all been designed to maintain Colorado’s reputation as the top destination for a world class guest experience.

From Steamboat’s multi-million dollar on-mountain lodge to Silverton’s new overnight heli-trips, the investments are as diverse as the guests they will serve. And with the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics just around the corner, the upcoming season is guaranteed to be accompanied by a renewed sense of excitement for all who are connected to the sport.

Crested Butte, USA

Snowboard Guide rating 8 out of 10 “The dog's balls for backcountry riding, steeps and cliffs, but also a piste-loving carver's destination and good for beginners. Free skiing from 25th Nov until the 15th of Dec. Good and friendly local services. ”
