You Can Be Our Hero

Join us in participating in Colorado Gives Day!

Put on your cape and help us save the day! By making a gift to CB Nordic today, you are helping us get more people outside. You are contributing to our community’s health and wellbeing. You are getting more kids on skis. You are offering people more opportunities to be healthy.

CB Nordic is about so much more than nordic skiing. It’s about our community. It’s about belonging. It’s about mental and physical health. It’s about fresh air and nature.

Your gift, no matter the size, helps us do more to sustain our trails and programs and to provide access to more folks. When you give today, Colorado Gives Day, your gift gets boosted by a $1 million dollar incentive fund. We get a portion of the fund, depending on how many gifts we receive from you. Help us make the most of this amazing opportunity by making your end of year gift today! 

Thank you for doing what you can to help CB Nordic thrive, not just survive.

Your Gift Makes These Programs Possible

Junior Team

The Junior Team is one of the most affordable youth ski programs in the state.  Our ski coaches share their love of skiing with kids ages 3 to 18 every day of the week. Getting kids out on the snow in the fresh air sets them up for a lifetime of healthy activity. When you give to CB Nordic, you’re helping to keep these program fees low so that more kids can have access to this amazing program. ⁠

New Youth Programs

This year we’re expanding access to Nordic skiing by working with Met Rec, the City of Gunnison, and Gunnison Nordic to host after-school programs in Gunnison. This new program helps eliminate obstacles like transportation, time, and equipment so that more kids can be healthy and active all winter long. When you give to CB Nordic, you help us come up with innovative new programs, so that more kids can have a solid foundation of health and wellbeing. ⁠

Community Outreach

One of the ways we expand access to skiing and snowshoeing is through partnerships with other nonprofits. For 3 years we’ve worked with Inmigrantes Unidos de Gunnison to host ski and snowshoe outings for the Hispanic immigrant community. We’ve also worked with refugee groups, veterans’ groups, the Adaptive Sports Center, and more. When you give to CB Nordic, you help us reduce or eliminate fees for programs like this, so that everyone has access to fresh air, exercise, and the great outdoors. ⁠

Ski for PE

CB Nordic partners with Crested Butte Elementary and Gunnison Elementary to get kids outside on snow. We want every child in the Gunnison Valley to grow up knowing how to Nordic ski. Like learning to swim, we consider this an essential life skill when winter is 8 months long! When you give to CB Nordic, you help us reduce or eliminate fees for these programs so that cost never prevents a child from participating.
