Latest Update 4/5, 6:45am

Happy Hump Day from Crested Butte! We should see a warming trend through the weekend, with a chance of more moisture Saturday and Sunday. Closing weekend for Crested Butte Mountain Resort is coming quickly, which means the pond skim and the rail jam on Saturday is also fast approaching. Come out to see costumed locals attempting to cross a chilly pond on skis, snowboards, or whatever they have on hand, and enjoy the rail jam too. It’s a great day for spectating, and fun way to wrap up the winter season in the Butte!

Travel Tips

Winter driving is tricky, especially in Colorado. Be sure to have an all weather car or chains if required for topping out on mountain passes. Before your trip be sure to check Colorado Department of Transportation for any road closures and our webcams to take a look at what’s happening around the area.
