Crested Butte Mountain Resort opened wall to wall for the first time since the 2010-11 season today. The west side features some of the mountain's most unique terrain, from Banana to Funnel to Sunset Ridge at the far boundary.
On a sunny day there's no place I'd rather be. It doesn't get more perfect than this bluebird, windless day.
Here's a look down the guts of the Banana. The snow was consistently good all the way down as long as you stayed in the chute. So good we came back a couple more times before calling it a day. Big ups to CBMR for going wall to wall and opening up some of our favorite terrain. [photos] Mike Horn
