December in Crested Butte

December 1, 2016

The last snow storm sure made the start to December a beautiful one.  Just this morning, while looking at our snow covered mountains I said, "I'll never get tired of this view".  With 23 inches YTD and more snow expected this week, skiing is off to a great start.  Photo below curtesy of TravelCrestedButte.
