Crested Butte Gears Up for Skitown Breakdown

Crested Butte locals and visitors are gearing up for the fifth annual Skitown Breakdown that encourages skiing, music and, hopefully, some fun in the sun. Taking place on March 22, the event will feature music from Matisyahu and The Samples with additional tunes playing all day on the slopes.

The event begins at 11 a.m. with three free shows on the outdoor decks, as well as plenty of space for dancing and enjoying the pristine spring conditions. Barbecue will be offered on one of ski country’s largest sundecks. At 1 p.m., the next show will begin at the Ice Bar at Uley’s Cabin and the third show will begin at 3 p.m. at Butte 66 in the base area.

“Music and skiing or riding in springtime conditions go hand in hand,” Scott Clarkson, vice president of sales and marketing at CBMR, said. “In the past, we hosted “Festevol” for our spring concert. Skitown Breakdown is replacing this great event with a name that truly identifies what we’re doing. We’re a great Colorado ski town and we will be breaking down with some fantastic music all over the mountain, all day long. It doesn’t get any better!”

General admission tickets to Skitown Breakdown are $20 until March 20, and they will then increase to $30. However, those who just want to hear daytime music will be able to do so free of charge. There is a VIP package available as well, which features one night at the Grand Lodge Crested Butte, a single-day lift ticket and general admission to the evening shows. The VIP experience is $115 per person.
