The 2016/2017 Season by the Numbers

It’s been a winter to remember, one that will go down in Crested Buttian history ranking alongside the legendary 2007-08 season!

CBMR was open 137 days
We received 324 total inches of snow
January 2017 received 136 total inches of snow. That’s over 11 FEET!

January 2017 was the snowiest January in history. The resort shut down due to too much snow and for almost 24 hours #burythebutte was trending nationally on Twitter. Ski Patrol worked their tails off to maintain terrain and drop rope lines as quickly as possible this entire season.

Snowmageddon with CBMR Athlete Rob Dickinson

Whoever started the hashtag #burythebutte surely had no idea how prophetic it would become.

The Butte hath been buried. 

Work.  Ski.  Shovel.  Sleep.  Repeat.  This is my life lately, and I am tired and sore and happy beyond words. 

I have lived in snow country of some sort my whole life, and nearly every vacation I have been on of my own doing has been to some other snowy locale.  At 13 I slept out in a tent in my parents’ backyard in the Blizzard of ’93 in the Northeast; I’ve been in Haines, Alaska in all-time pow; I’ve had my Heli grounded by snow in Golden, BC, and...
