Bringing a Little Grace to the Slopes
CBMR is proud to partner with Mountain Manners, a local educational campaign and advocacy group focused on teaching recreators proper outdoor etiquette. The initiative began as an education campaign surrounding Crested Butte’s famed Wildflower Festival, and the resort felt the message was just as important for winter. The campaign incorporates 10 “Manners,” of which you’ll find a shortened version detailed below, as a reminder that we can all be a little more gracious and kind to each other, and the environment.

Enjoy these fun, memorable tips aimed at helping everyone remember it’s cool to be kind.
We invite you to come and use our inbound mountain terrain, learn Mountain Manners and pass it on, so we can help do our part to protect what’s in- AND out-of-bounds. For the expanded version of CBMR’s winter-focused Mountain Manners, visit
