CB Nordic : Magic Meadows Yurt Dinner 

The Magic Meadows Yurt is a backcountry yurt located in the Slate River Valley just outside of Crested Butte, Colorado. It provides a truly magical setting for dinners, Sunday brunch, or private events. Diners ski or snowshoe to and from the yurt on an easy groomed trail, surrounded by majestic snowy peaks. We host yurt dinners catered by private chef, Tim Egelhoff, several times a season and Sunday brunches most weeks from December through March.

36th Annual Alley Loop Nordic Marathon

February 5 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Alley Loop is not your typical American Birkebeiner Qualifier.  The course starts, finishes, and passes through the heart of downtown Crested Butte winding around on snow covered streets, narrow alleys, and one lane bridges.  At any given time, you may be cheered on by an alley party, find yourself surrounded by oompa loompas, or skiing past a train of people connected by a crazy costume.

Racers are sometimes forced to make quick passes and depending on their luck, may even get stuck on a bridge for a few seconds. Once you make it through town, you are rewarded by pristine tracks and epic views on the outskirts of Crested Butte. If you like normal, you may want to look for another race.  If you are up for anything, this is right up your alley!
