The Alley Loop

Alley Loop racers dressed up in gondola costumes

The Alley Loop is a cross-country ski race that feels more like a festival. The race course winds its way through the historic alleys and streets of downtown Crested Butte, filled with snow groomed specially for the occasion. With six distance options and events in both classic and skate skiing, the Alley Loop offers something for everyone. The 21K and 42K draw many avid skiers, but most folks join in the fun of the 5K, where the competition is focused on best costume more than best time. Race takes place February 1, 2020.


Colorado Crafted

Live music will keep you entertained while you sample wine, beer, and liquors from companies such as Wood’s High Mountain Distillery, Eddyline Brewing Company, and Black Arts Cellars, as well as foods like artisan smoked meats from Hogwood Barbecue and handmade ice cream from Third Bowl. Crafted is offering $5 off to Alley Loop Participants.
