No Snow? No Problem!

No Snow?  No Problem!

Just in case we don’t have enough snow on Thanksgiving, we have come up with a Plan B and a Plan C for our Thanksgiving Camp.  No matter what, it’s going to be awesome!

Plan B: Low Snow

Not enough snow to ski in town but enough to ski at Lily Lake, our scenic, high elevation venue which is groomed a few miles north of town.  Refunds will be issued to any registrant who is not happy with this alternative ski option.

Plan C: No Snow? No Problem!   

Dry-land training is an integral part of every ski racers’ fall training and you will enjoy our coaches’ imaginative and fun activities that could include: ski walking with poles, Mousehufs and Spenst on our ski trails, ski specific strength, balance & agility classes, ski specific yoga classes, simulated races or intervals on our Ski Erg machines, designing a training plan for your winter goals, wine & waxing, hiking and mountain biking options, downhill skiing skills, and, for our more avid skiers – roller skiing.  Our Crested Butte Junior and Masters skiers have been doing dry-land training all fall, so our coaches know how to make it fun & personalized to your fitness level and goals.  If you don’t have snow where you live, you will have new skills, drills and workouts to get you in top form when you hit the snow.

Full refunds will be issued to those not wishing to participate in a dry land camp.


We’re going on 30+ years of snow at Thanksgiving here in Crested Butte,  Our Thanksgiving Camp offers clinics in small groups with intimate, personalized coaching that caters to unique technique and fitness levels.  Then, when you’re done skiing, you get to hang out in a cool town.
