Crested Butte Pre-Season Stoke

Pre-Season Stoke

As the temps start creeping up, and the sun is staying up later, there's a certain group of people who are getting really itchy for summer.  Yes, I'm talking to you.  The uphill climber, the downhill sender, the people who talk about tacky-dirt and dusty trails, have a vested-interest in the mud season (and when it will dry out), and may or may not spend more money on bike parts than on their car. 

This post is for you, you mountain biking fiend.

Your season may have already started outside of our wintery mountain valley, traveling to warmer and drier climates to get your pre...

Crested Butte Changing of the Seasons

Changing of the Seasons
