Ski & Snowshoe

The Nordic Ski Capital of Colorado

Come ski or snowshoe with us!

Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are pretty simple sports. You need warm clothes, equipment, and a trail pass to get out and enjoy our 50 kilometers of groomed trails. We provide everything but the clothes!

If you’re new to the sport, we recommend a lesson or a tour to get you started.

Ready to take your skiing to the next level? Consider a season pass, joining the Masters Community, or jumping into a local Event.

Rental Equipment

We rent snowshoes and cross-country skis. The basic adult ski or snowshoe rental package is $20. We have men’s, women’s, and kids’ snowshoes. The basic ski package includes traditional classic (cross-country) skis with fish scales. We also have skate skis, classic skis with metal edges, and classic skis with built-in mohair skins.


Never skied before?  A lesson is a great way to start to be sure you get more fun out of skiing. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, get more out of your skiing with a lesson led by one of our professional ski instructors.

Our Trails

World-class trails, right at your door-step. CB Nordic grooms 55 kilometers of trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, all accessible right from town. Trails range in difficulty from flat and easy (green) trails to steep and challenging (double black-diamond). All trails come with stunning views. Most trails require a trail pass.

Trail Passes

A trail pass is required to ski on our groomed trail system. It is $20 for a regular adult day pass, or we offer a variety of season passes. If you want to bring your dog, we require your dog also have a pass (day or season). Please review our Dog Policies if this pertains to you so that we can all get along out there.

Waxing & Repairs

CB Nordic offers a variety of ski waxing & repair services. From the pre-race Hot Box Treatment for your skis to routine maintenance, our ski techs can help keep you gliding fast all winter long. We also have a public wax bench with tools for your use.

Backcountry Tours

The mountains are calling! Towering peaks and rolling valleys surround Crested Butte. A great way to explore the terrain outside of town is to go with a guide. Guides are friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about the outdoors. Tours are on skis or snowshoes–you pick. Come explore our backyard with us!
