I was pretty busy in November and didn’t find time to update this blog as much as I should have. Catching up to where we are now. November produced a lot of really great sunsets here in Crested Butte.
Walking the dog at sunset always makes for a nice way to cap a day.
Its hard to beat this town for sunsets and views really.
Then it snowed! It snowed early in November and I went hiking for some turns at Irwin Lake. It didn’t amount to much, but it helped scratch the itch.
I found a few good turns.
I shot a little bit of video too, I might put it up after I look at it again. It was a fun day, but man was it COLD. We had single digit temperatures all weekend. It did warm up again after that though. That week I went up to Loveland ski area for Demo days for work. It was a fun day of trying out new snowboards, but I didn’t shoot any photo or video that was any good.
Soon after that came opening day at Crested Butte. I went up shortly before the mountain opened to get some shots of the snowmaking piles for my social media duties at work, and I was treated to this awesome sunset. It only lasted a couple of minutes, so I felt especially lucky. This is an instagram shot.
We haven’t seen a whole lot of snow since early November, so I decided to get back on skis for the first time in 6 years. Turns out I still know how. I was also product testing for work so I can describe our equipment to the guests.
As you can see, we could use a bit of snow. I had a couple double header days- skiing/snowboarding and then mountain biking in Gunnison at Hartman Rocks. There are some really great trails down there. I really enjoyed Collarbone Alley, which is right above the parking lot.
The views up at Hartman Rocks aren’t too shabby either.

I made it into the local newspaper’s Thanksgiving section. The question was, “what are you thankful for?”
Thanks for checking out the pictures!
