Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) hosts Skitown Breakdown this Saturday, March 22, with music on the mountain throughout the day, and the final Skitown Breakdown concert featuring The Samples, opening for Matisyahu in the base area tent at 6:30 p.m.
The resort will host three free shows throughout the day at various locations around the resort. Beginning at 11 a.m. at Paradise on Crested Butte, there will be music and outdoor barbeque on the large sundecks.
The second show is at the Ice Bar at Uley’s Cabin at 1 p.m. Then at 3 p.m., Butte 66, in the base area, will feature local band Mine Control until 5 p.m. The all-day springtime music celebration culminates with the official Skitown Breakdown concert with Matisyahu and The Samples as the opening act.
“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,” says Scott Clarkson, president of sales and marketing at CBMR.
