|Press Release from Crested Butte:
Crested Butte Mountain this year prepares to install a new fixed grip quad
lift to access its premier ski-in/ski-out Prospect real estate development.
In keeping with the high aesthetic standards of the development, the resort
designed the base lift building of stone and wood with a shake roof —
“the best-looking lift shack in Colorado, if not the world,” CEO John
Work continues on the other infrastructure of Prospect, where startlingly
beautiful wooded homesites look out onto the ski area on one side and
alpine wilderness on the other. Only 14 lots remain on the market from the
first phase of 38 lots. At its completion, the 400-acre Prospect will include
162 homesites, all strategically planned to maximize the exceptional views
and preserve the feeling of solitude.
“The development provides unspoiled beauty and solitude that make it
extraordinary, yet, with the lift addition, homeowners will have convenient
access to the ski slopes,” Norton said.
When installation is complete next year, the Leitner-Poma lift will carry
skiers from Prospect to the top of the Goldlink and Painter Boy lifts,
adding four new trails and 15 intermediate acres to the mountain’s terrain.
|Construction is still in the early stages as of early July.
