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.

“Help when you need it............”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

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.

“Can't Wait to go Back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

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 cross country skiing. My instructor, Tony, was terrific. He was patient and fun. He even kept me past the one hour mark since I was picking up the technique quickly. On my second scheduled lesson, Tony worked with me on overcoming my down hill fear.

Everyone who works at the Nordic Center really seems to love their job and it shows. Next year, I think I should be able to rent the equipment and head to the trails solo.

Thanks Shane and Tony.

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