Crested Butte has a well-earned reputation for being the Nordic ski capital of Colorado. Crested Butte Nordic grooms 55 kilometers of trails for classic and skate skiing, winding through the open valley and into the Aspen groves and pine forests. Rentals and trail passes are available at the Nordic Center in downtown Crested Butte—kids 17 and under as well as seniors 70 and over ski free. Crested Butte Nordic also hosts one of the most iconic races every February: the Alley Loop. Racers of all ages ski the streets and historic alleyways of Crested Butte, creating a festival-like atmosphere in the heart of town.
