Crested Butte Nordic supports our community's mental and physical health by providing winter outdoor recreation through our trails, programs, and events. We rely on donors like you to keep our programs affordable, so that all people can access the benefits of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
"The essence of community is tough to foster in the winter months as everyone huddles inside to stay warm. You don't have music in the park or backyard bbq to bring people together like you do in the summer. For our family, CB Nordic has become a connection point during the winter months to socialize with other families and friends and enjoy winter in the surrounding mountains together."
"I would never get out of bed if we didn't have the groomed trails to lure me outside to enjoy our prominent mountains. So up-lifting to ski around to enjoy the various vistas. Thank you for your early morning commitment to the nordic community and the town."
"I just wanted to thank you guys for everything that you are doing. The service you're providing for the community is huge. The trails have been in incredible shape, and offering rentals to the community during this crazy time has been wonderful. It's been invaluable to be able to be out on the trails, seeing so many people (many obviously somewhat new to the nordic scene) enjoying the fresh air and spectacular views. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
On the Alley Loop: "Such a fun atmosphere. Felt almost like family, even though it was my first time in crested Butte."
"Amazing trails in the woods, and even better was the concept of skiing through town streets. It is just so cool and I can't imagine the work required to make that happen. Never previously experienced anything like it. So awesome! Such a fun ski town vibe."
On the Crested Butte Junior Team: "Thanks for building a program that meets all styles of learning to Nordic. It is so awesome to have a program that fosters all types of kids and their level of engagement in a sport. This allows for building lifetime Nordic skiers!"
