Backcountry Skiing: Crested Butte, Colorado [2nd Edition]
What’s in the new edition?
- Now on waterproof, tear resistant paper.
- New lines! We’ve removed a few unpopular routes from the book, and replaced them with some big peaks and high alpine zones within striking distance of the existing zones.
- GPS Coordinates. Trailheads, skin track starts, and skin track ends will all have GPS coordinates for you to lock into your device.
- Avalanche Information. We’ve worked with the Crested Butte Avalanche Center to help explain each zone’s terrain as it relates to avalanche hazards. You’ll see references to slope angles, terrain traps, convexities, and other hazards to keep in mind on each given zone.
Maps of the region, aerial photographs of each ski run, and legend keys are designed to give the user the most pertinent information for riding the goods safely and wisely.
