CB, if you want to hit teo bowl you have to ski all the back down to the base area/Silver Queen, as far as coverage, and maybe this is just this year but i have never seen coverage like this in cb minus the 07-08 season when we eclipsed the 400 inch mark for snow.

Never the less both mountains are a blast!


This is one of my favorite things about Crested Butte. There is some excellent weeding out of undesirable going on there. I love how if you fall off they make you go to the end of the line...... love it. Though not the ski area, Kebler Pass must get more snow than just about anywhere in Colorado.

Irwin/Ruby Range and or Scarp ridge averages 600 plus inches a year in snow, that is "the" most snow accumulation in Co period....nothing but steep pow turns for days on end....if you havent been out there I highly suggest you contact CS Irwin for a snowcat trip, or if you dont have the money for that kind of excursion, you most definitely have to find someone with a snowmobile and get back there, its some of the deepest powder turns and best terrain in CO....period :mrgreen:

just my 2 cents...


Inbounds CO

1. Silverton - terrain is killer
2. Crested Butte
3. Telluride
4. Highlands
5. Loveland - Proximity to front range, no crowds ever, always get more snow than a-basin, but i still love the basin.

Part of the reason why i'm moving to CB this summer, best and most snow in CO, not to mention the terrain selection available.
