Very accommodating staff. The hadn't groomed the trails the day we were there, so just had to pay for rentals. We had a fun time - the area is beautiful!

We wanted to learn to classic (nordic) ski. Many places have some trails which are almost an after thought adjacent to a ski resort but this Nordic Center is quite extensive. There are three major areas to ski of variable difficulty, all very scenic.The staff were helpful. The equipment was of good quality.We thought it was worth traveling all the... More

If you want to nordic ski I guess this is the place for you. Unfortunately its also billed as a sledding/tubing destination, which its not--unless you are a small child. Surprised that Crested Butte does not have a sledding/tubing hill for adults!

Totally impressed by the extent of trails maintained by the nordic center! Lots of varied terrain, groomed for classic track and skate lanes.

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.
