Crested Butte Celebrates the Full Moon

Crested Butte Celebrates the Full Moon Chris Segal, Crested Butte Mountain Resort

Full Moon Festivities are in full swing this winter at Crested Butte Mountain Resort with the new monthly Full Moon Experience at the new Umbrella Bar at Ten Peaks. Take a self-guided skin or snowshoe to the top of Ten Peaks and warm up inside the Umbrella Bar. Guests will enjoy a delicious buffet dinner under the moonlight, including fondue, salad, soup or chili, dessert and one complimentary wine or beer. Additional beverages will be available for purchase.

The Full Moon Experience brings family and friends together in an intimate but social setting, while enjoying the scenery of the surrounding peaks and Mt. Crested Butte under the moonlight. Guests will want to expect the skin or snowshoe to take forty-five minutes to get to the top of Ten Peaks and come prepared for the elements with layers and a headlamp. Event tickets are for sale at the Adventure Center in advance for $30. The Full Moon at Ten Peaks experiences are January 23, February 22, March 23.

The new Umbrella Bar at Ten Peaks features glass walls, a 35-foot diameter retractable umbrella roof, seating for 75 people and new bathrooms. We wanted to create a unique place at this premier spot on the mountain, explains Larry Pirner, director of culinary operations at Crested Butte Mountain Resort. We invite guests to come and enjoy some mountain hospitality, the best views in the west, and some great hand-crafted food.
