Stuff is happening!

Season Passes, Alley Loop, & More

If you’re up early these days, you’ll notice a distinct “fall-ness” in the air. It’s colder. It’s darker. It feels like you might meet a bear around the corner. While this turn of the seasons always feels a bit sad (and to be honest, we all start cramming in 401 just one more time) it’s also exciting for us nordic skiers and snowshoers. It means that the stunning, sparkling days of winter are just around the corner.

Thanksgiving Camp is on!

November 24 - 27, 2022

After a couple years of modifying Thanksgiving Camp for COVID, we’re excited to bring the full camp back in 2022. Join us for 1.5 hour beginner clinics or full-day intermediate/advanced clinics. We’ll have a Kids’ Camp, Wine & Waxing, and a Community Race, too! We’re planning on another year of on-snow, early season training, but this year we also have a back-up dryland plan. Either way, our Thanksgiving Camp is a great way to kick off the season with expert instructors, new friends, and a fun community! Program Guide is coming September 1.

Provide Feedback on the Draft Community Compass

The Town of Crested Butte is CB Nordic’s longest standing partner. The original groomed nordic trails in CB began as part of the Town’s parks & rec department, and now the Town continues to support CB Nordic through use of land, easements, and buildings. For the last 6 months they’ve been undertaking a community planning effort called the Compass. They have just released their Draft Compass Plan, and they want to know what you think! Learn more, and participate in the process here.
