Free Rentals for Season Passholders

Giving You More With Your Season Pass

We believe that everyone should get outside all year long. In order to help you get more out of your winter, we offer 5 days of free rentals as a perk when you purchase a Season Pass. This doesn’t apply to 10-Punch passes. Read the Fine Print below. Still have questions? Read on. We’ve tried to provide the answers.

Why are you doing this?

We want you to get more out of winter. We want you to have more fun, be healthier, and enjoy more time outside with friends and family. We want you to experience for the wonder of a dinner at our Magic Meadows Yurt, the beauty of Mike’s Mile, the serenity of the Bench, and the joys of all of our other groomed trails.

We also offer other free programs to get more people outside and excited about Nordic skiing: Free passes for Super Seniors. Free Learn to Ski Clinics. Town Ranch,The Rec Path, and the Riverbend Connector are free.

We believe that a Season Pass helps you get more out of winter, but for some of you, the equipment is key. It’s in our mission and it’s in how we work everyday at CB Nordic: we want you and others to enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing as part of a thriving, vibrant life.

Do I get to keep a pair of your rental skis for the season?

Not quite. Rentals are for one day at a time (pick-up and drop-off on the same day). You get 5 days of rentals, any time throughout the season. Free rentals are available on a first-come, first-served basis, but must be reserved in advance using your Season Passholder code.

Reserve Your Rental Equipment


Then we’ll charge you the Full Day Rate for each day they’re late. We’ll also charge you for any damage or dirt you leave on the skis. Thank you treating our equipment with respect so that it will serve others as well as it serves you.

What equipment can I borrow?

Season pass holders can borrow any of our skis or snowshoes, one day at a time, at no cost for 5 days of the season. This includes classic skis, skate skis, skin skis, etc. We do limit the number of season passholder skis/snowshoes that go out each day, so be sure to pick up yours early to ensure availability. We’ve recently updated ALL of our skis to brand new Fischer skis.


Our skis have sizes, but they won’t be as tailored a fit as your own skis. When you have your own skis, you can customize them to your liking and they’re ready at your fingertips, every day. You also have to come by the Nordic Center, whereas with your own skis you can go straight to the trailhead!

The Fine Print

One pair of snowshoes or skis, boots, and poles per day per person can be redeemed from the Crested Butte Nordic Center by current season passholders. Must be present to redeem, and all normal checkout procedures apply. This offer does not apply to 10 punch passholders.  Any rentals not returned by the end of the day will be charged full price for each day late. Free rentals are on a first come, first served basis, and will be limited to no more than 10 free ski or snowshoe rentals/day, in order to accommodate other guests. Free rentals are limited to 5 days per season, per passholder. After you’ve used up your 5 free days, rentals can be obtained at 50% off.
