Winter Trails Differ from Summer Trails

It happens every year: CB’s summer trails are covered in snow and access to many of our favorite areas around town changes during the winter months. The Woods Walk and Lower Loop, specifically, have different winter uses, which are now in effect. Both the Town of Crested Butte and the Crested Butte Land Trust have agreements with CB Nordic for the maintenance of winter trails that compose the “West Side” groomed trail system. We ask that once winter grooming begins, walking and biking ends on these summer trails, which all pass through private property. For the groomed winter trails, trail passes are required, and the cost of these passes supports the maintenance of this amazing community amenity. Thank you for abiding by the posted signs and displaying your trail pass during the use of the CB Nordic groomed winter trails. There are many great places to walk and snowshoe just outside of town on National Forest land, like the Whetstone Vista trail, Slate River drainage, and Gothic Road. The CBGTrails app has a winter layer that clearly outlines winter trail use throughout the valley. We encourage everyone to use the app to familiarize themselves with our Winter Trails in the area.
