Thanksgiving Camp

Crested Butte Nordic 620 2nd. Street, Crested Butte, CO, United States

We’re taking a break from offering our traditional Thanksgiving Camp this year as we focus on completing our new facility, The Outpost. Fear not, exciting things are still being planned. We’re partnering with Southwest Nordic Center to host a Thanksgiving Camp for the kids. And when the snow flies, we'll be grooming to Lily Lake!

Alley Loop Nordic Marathon

The Alley Loop is not your typical American Birkebeiner Qualifier. The course winds its way through snow-laden streets, alleyways and narrow bridges in the hart of downtown Crested Butte. At any given time you may be cheered-on by town revelers, find yourself surrounded by Oompa Loompas, or navigating a crazy costume train assemblage… Racers are sometimes forced into making daring passes and depending on their luck, may even get waylaid on a bridge for a brief moment. Once you make it through town, you are rewarded by pristine tracks and epic views on the surrounding Crested Butte Nordic trail network. If you like normal, you may want to look for another race. If you are up for anything, this is right up your alley!
