Many things have changed at the top of Painter Boy run, and you’ll notice as soon as your chair comes out of the aspens.  Where once stood a small cabin, now a beautiful Umbrella Bar and cook’s kitchen sits, like a vision flown in from Europe. 

Depending on the day and what the weather is doing, the umbrella over the bar will either be down to...

Crested Butte Uley's Sleigh Ride Dinner

Uley's Sleigh Ride Dinner

The feeling in Tracker’s was giddy—the snow was falling an inch an hour outside, and most of us sipping our drinks at the bar were about to head out into the night on a sleigh pulled by a snowcat.  Giddy might be an understatement.

We were about to embark on a dining experience not many have had before—the Uley’s Sleigh Ride dinner at Crested Butte Mountain Resort is both a fine dining experience and a mountain adventure.  The beauty of this particular adventure, is it’s accessible to all ages, skiers or not.  It allows people that don’t ski or ride the opportunity to see the...

Crested Butte Grand Traverse Skimo Academy

Grand Traverse Skimo Academy

It’s no secret that tall mountains have inspired and lured people for hundreds of years; beckoning them to the peaks, no matter the difficulty or discomfort encountered along the way.  If not for the love of mountains and wild places of the world and of the mind, the sport of ski mountaineering would be a farfetched notion.  But it is because of the human need for something meaningful, beautiful and deeply challenging, that ski mountaineering is a sport that has caught on.  In its early days, it was simply a means to an end—a way to deliver mail to remote mining camps in California and...
