This crew provides a lovely assortment of trails for all abilities and their grooming is spot on. I enjoy how their trail system weaves through town, as it offers so many spectacular views. Grab a trail map to plan out your loop--the trails around Peanut Lake are breathtaking.

The knowledgable staff is most helpful regarding snow conditions to ensure a good ski day. Ski trails are very well groomed and marked all ensuing a great day on skis. The trails provide outstanding views of mountains and ice covered streams.

We were in CB for a week of snow and X-C Skiing. The center was fantastic. So many trails in so many places. We were staying at the Pioneer cabins and as part of the package we received free passes for one day for both us. AMAZINGLY, there was a very beautiful and long trail that welcomed dogs. There are...

Your experience at the CB Nordic Center begins with the helpful staff who outfit you with rental equipment, if needed, and share their great knowledge of the extensive groomed Nordic trails. You can take off on your own, or you can take a lesson, which I highly recommend. Nordic skiing is not just like walking, and you will have a... More

Our first priority was to ski at the ski area, but warm weather presented challenging (icy in the morning) conditions so we hit the Nordic center to rent classic skis one day, and then took a skate skiing lesson second day which was great! Ask for Barb.

The Nordic Center and groomed paths in Crested Butte were excellent for a first time skier. We took lessons from Jennifer and were very comfortable using the green trails the same day.

Overall the center was excellent, helpful staff and trails with nice views. But we really wanted to ski - unfortunately, the convinced us we needed a lesson (which, for some probably - but as an overall athlete, I was highly disappointed and believe I don't need a lesson. Make your own decisions...) Instead we snowshoed, the "snowshoe specific" trails were... More

Why pay good money to ski only to have some jerk yell at you because he didn't see the ski pass? The Nordic Center ought to have friendly trail guides, assisting people who need to find the restroom or engaging in small talk - if the skier has stopped. Forcing a skier to stop mid-stride to police is poor customer... More

On the busy President's Day weekend in February of this year, I came into the Nordic Center with 11 teenagers and 6 adults. None of the teenagers had ever been on skis before and they were an energetic bunch. The Nordic Center staff were incredibly helpful, friendly, patient, informative and got equipment and trail passes for us in no time.... More
