Suitable for Strong Intermediate to Expert Skiers

Skiers who get the most out of a holiday at Crescent Spur tend to be strong parallel skiers, comfortable with most runs at major ski areas. Snowboarders should be comfortable in treed and open areas and able to traverse considerable distances. If you’re generally fit and can ski at a strong intermediate level, you’ll likely do fine here. That said, we recommend you start a fitness program at least 8 to 10 weeks prior to your arrival, including stretching and aerobic exercises as well as strength training.

A Day at Crescent Spur

Here’s an overview of what to expect on a typical day at Crescent Spur.

  • 6:45 a.m. – Rise and Shine

    Wake up with our morning stretch class. This class is optional, but we generally advise guests to attend—as the positive benefits of stretching tend to be felt later in the day, on the mountain.

  • 7:30 a.m. – Fuel Up

    Get ready for the day with a big mountain breakfast. During breakfast your guides will update you on weather and expected conditions for the day.

  • 9:00 a.m. – Get Outside

    A typical time to make our departure into the mountains. We allow weather and snow conditions to inform where we ski, as certain days are great for tree skiing, whereas others are better suited to glacier and alpine terrain.

  • 12:00 p.m. – Picnic on the Mountain

    Take a break to soak up the beautiful views and enjoy a mountain picnic. Recharge and prepare to take the afternoon by storm.

  • 3:30-5:30 p.m. – Après Ski

    Feeling blissfully exhausted we head back to the lodge for après ski hors d’oeuvres, refreshments and relaxation. Enjoy a treatment with our massage therapist, soak in the outdoor hot tub, or sip the nightly cocktail feature around the bar – there is no shortage of ways to unwind.

  • 6:00-7:30 p.m. – Dine with Friends

    A delicious dinner featuring locally sourced ingredients is served in our cozy fireside dining room. Cap the evening off with a game of pool or a glass of scotch with friends.
