Looking for somewhere off the beaten track to ski?
Butte, long known for its superb
expert powder tree skiing, has been extending its terrain to cater for
intermediates. Over the past two summers it has worked with the US Forest
Service to identify suitable areas where trees can be thinned to make glades.
Skiers seeking more gentle gladed runs between he trees now have new options
for the coming season in the East River area and off the Teocali lift. Getting
there is also be easier following the introduction of United Airlines flights
from Chicago to nearby Gunnison.
