Crested Butte Cat Skiing with CS Irwin
Nov 2010 26

There is a new operation in town as CS Irwin starts their first official year of operation in the mountains surrounding Crested Butte, Colorado.  We recently had a chance to catch up with Kyra Martin from CS Irwin to get the details of what to expect from the inaugural season of cat skiing.  We hope to make a visit to CS Irwin in the near future so that we can share the CS Irwin experience firsthand.
