Crested Butte Mountain Resort
I took this picture yesterday on Crested Butte Mountain which has an elevation of 12,162 feet at the peak. Here there's a vertical drop of 2,775 feet, lift served and 3,062 feet for those who are willing to hike to the top. The mountain stats include 121 trails, the longest of which is 2.6 miles. All the beginner and intermediate trails are groomed every night. The conditions of the trails we skied yesterday were excellent.
