  • Mission and Goals


    The mission of the CBNT is to provide young Nordic skiers and biathletes with exceptional coaching, training opportunities, and a healthy approach to sport. Our philosophy is that a fun, healthy, outdoor lifestyle is a great foundation for growth. To this end, our organization strives to provide programing that will appeal to recreational and competitive skiers alike. Ultimately, we hope participants will become life-long skiers, so we want our participants to feel that they have gained more than just technical know-how and fitness. Furthermore, our program is designed to help student athletes learn to organize, prioritize, and execute plans toward, not only sporting goals, but also life goals.


    Promote Nordic sport as part of a healthy, outdoor lifestyle
    Help athletes maximize their potential as racers
    Teach skiers waxing technique and ski maintenance
    Provide opportunities to travel and connect with other skiers around the state and country
    Experience the adventure and recreational opportunities that the valley has to offer
    Develop a close knit, supportive team atmosphere

    Have fun!

    The Magic Meadows 7

    The Magic Meadows 7 is a Criterium Style Nordic Ski and Fundraiser for the Crested Butte and Gunnison Nordic Teams.  From the Sprouts to the Competition Team, we would like to share a day of fun and skiing, while we raise money to support the team as it continues to grow. To this end, each skier who registers to be in a CBNT program will also be automatically entered to participate in the Magic Meadows 7 at no additional cost. We expect every skier to help make this event special again.

    The Magic Meadows 7 is right around the corner!  Last year, the Devo and Comp Teams raised $7,000.  This year, with a bit more planning and the inclusion of the entire Team including the Sprouts, Scouts, and Explorers, we are hoping to raise $15,000.  This money enables us to continue to provide excellent affordable after school programming for children around the Valley.

    Here’s how you can help:


    Collect pledges from friends and family.

    • Use the attached pledge sheet to have your child collect and record pledges.
    • Input pledges using our online pledge form.

    Tell your friends about the event.

    Take part in the weekly pledge challenge.

    • Each Tuesday, we will tally all pledges entered in the online pledge form over the previous week.  The team member with the most pledges that week will win the weekly prize.

    We are super psyched for a great event and appreciate your family’s involvement!  If you have any questions or would like to help in any other way, contact

    The Gunnison Valley Kids Race Series

    The Gunnison Valley Kid’s Nordic Race Series is back for a second year of fun and pressure-free races for kids 13 and under. There will be four races this year, each with a different format. Prizes will be awarded at the end of each race as well as a cumulative awards ceremony at the last race. Please join us in celebrating Nordic ski racing for young kids in the valley this year. As always, there will be lots of hot chocolate, treats and fun ways to go fast on skis.
