Welcome Back Winter
Monday, November 16, 2009

After a few good snow storms (although with less precip than we might like) and some verrrry cold temperatures, winter has finally arrived. All the summer tools are stored away in the crawl space. Snow shovels are distributed strategically around the house. We're ready...

And to start the season, join us in welcoming back the Crested Butte Avalanche Center crack forecasting team for another exciting season of weather-guessing fun! Alan, Steve, Billy, Jayson and John will do their best to bring you accurate local micro-climate forecasts and backcountry reports all winter long.
