Whew, its been a busy week! Tourist season is in full swing here in Crested Butte, and I’ve been working hard. It sure is nice to see town full of people. Before the rush started I was able to get out to a spot called Coney’s in the backcountry of Crested Butte and earn some turns for the first time this season. We made it to the ridge right at dusk and I was fortunate enough to take in this fantastic view of Mt. Crested Butte.
Gothic was acting as huge light reflector and painting the slope in a beautiful orange glow as we were ascending. I would have taken a photo, but I don’t think I could have captured it. You just had to be there.
Happy new year everyone!
