Totally impressed by the extent of trails maintained by the nordic center! Lots of varied terrain, groomed for classic track and skate lanes. Their GPS-based grooming reports are also very impressive! I wish all trails were so well managed. The actual center itself didn't seem capable of handling more than two guests at a time, however, which is tricky when... More

Staff were very helpful in recommending trails for snow shoeing. Tried the trail system one day and found the snow shoe trails difficult to find and not as scenic. Would recommend renting shoes and saving the cash on the nordic trail system.

Beautifully groomed trails, stunning scenery helpful/pleasant staff. The yurt is a must see whether you are lucky enough to dine there ( once a month opportunity ) or simply pack a sandwich and take a breather and soak up the sun or warm up by the wood stove!

This was our first time at the CB Nordic Center. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. We spent two days skiing the trails and especially enjoyed the ones to Magic Meadows. I'd definitely recommend checking out Crested Butte's Nordic Center.

Visited here when I first arrived this year on our trip to Crested Butte. Exactly what I was looking for, help and guidance for a first-time "snowshoer". Good instruction on equipment, groomed trails, and levels of difficulty. Staff were friendly, very helpful, and knowledgeable.

Once you get up the hill the trails are great. Prices are easy on the wallet. Take your camera on a nice day.

I had the opportunity to visit the Nordic Center twice during my stay in Crested Butte. This was an amazing experience both times. Since I have a fear of going down hill, I dropped my family off at the mountain base for alpine skiing, then headed to town for Nordic Skiing. I scheduled a private one hour lesson on classic...

These guys are great - they cater to everyone, not just the well to do tourists. Ice skates, snow shoes, skis, nice!

I got up to Crested Butte with hopes of finding early season nordic skiing.....what I found far exceeded my expectations... The Crested Butte Nordic Center offers the best early skiing in the state of Colorado. The Center grooms Lily Lake for classic skiing as an early season teaser for anyone to get a jump on the season. The skiing yesterday... More

I stopped in and learned about the CB Adaptive Sports Center. It seems like they have great programming!
