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!
Browse below for everything you need to ski or snowshoe with us.
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.
Lessons & Clinics
Never skied before? A lesson is a great way to start to be sure you get more fun out of skiing. A veteran skier? A clinic can help you fine-tune technique so you’re more efficient, faster, and have more fun. Get more out of your skiing with a lesson or a clinic led by one of our professional ski instructors.
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.
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.
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!
