Crested Butte 5:10-8:00 Vertical: 2,775 feet
The Crested Butte ski patrol fired up the chairlift for us almost and hour-and-a-half after closing. Willoughby and I took our run with resort celeb Kim Reichhelm, a two-time Women’s World Extreme Skiing Champion and Crested Butte ski ambassador. We shot down Monument, International, and the Playground in dark, flat light. She ripped sweet, effortless turns through the steep moguls like she could feel every bump before she hit it.
