hello

i have booked a nice vacation for my girlfriend and i to Crested Butte. my buddies work there an never been to CO, so i just went for it. need to get away from the northeast. I will be ther Feb 20-25th, 2007. we are staying on the mountain so i will not have access to leave the area.

First thing, is anyone close to CB?

Second, i am a first year splitter and hope to get some runs under my belt before i go out there, will you still want to go with me? i just want to experience the beauty of being out there on your own and having the freshest runs.

Third, if not interested on meeting me any other suggestions to find others?

thank you for your time.

Over the weekend there is a chance that I might be down at Monarch Pass. It's about an hour from the "Butte proper. Depending on how you get there you might even drive over it. Not a bad place to take out a nOOb.

Crested Butte itself has some amazing bc. Huge hikes yield huges runs. We had to climb near 3500 vertical to get one run in last year. It serious enough that it can be on or off depending on the avy report for the day.

Hit me up when it's a couple weeks out from your trip. We'll see if schedules can coincide for us to hook up. Maybe we can make that our Mini Splitfest day this year and get the rest of the Colorado Crew out.

I'm down if I'm here. MP should be good around that time.

i totally appreciate the info. i will def hit you up before i levae but i do not kow if i would be able to drive an hour to that spot. i will not have a car. my buddy does so i might get that i dont know. plus i will have my girlfriend with me who is a skier and she does not have bc equip. she is a good skier but i think the resort is where she would be most comfortable. i know one day she will not ski so that is the day i am thinking of getting out.

thank you for the info and if you could keep me up to date with weather and snow conditions there. cant wait.

CO Avalanche and weather report:
http://geosurvey.state.co.us/avalanche/
Crested Butte area would be central mountains

Pretty good snowforecast:
www.snowforecast.com
However CB is not available
Aspen probably would be pretty close call though, or check the NOAA weather site http://www.noaa.gov/wx.html

I must have missed the CB link the first time.
Here you go: http://www.snowforecast.com/coloradofcs ... butte.html

I like that site.... they are pretty accurate with predictions, at least for the front rage resorts.

I think Iride, myself, maybe some others are going to try to get out this weekend. There hasn't been much in the way of snow lately. Still foot did fall at Monarch, and Janet's Cabin was reporting a foot on Vail Pass. So there are some options.

Hey DiveBomber, welcome to the front range circus. We definitely get out. Though I haven't been as reliable as previous seasons. Ahhh life, can be a pain in the arse.

Still, all the CO Splitters have been getting out. Pretty much all of the local riders I have met here are solid.

Post up when you are able to get out.

We'll definitely try to get something going when RidePowder is out here.
