CB Nordic COVID-19 Protocols

This page will be updated regularly with any changes to our programs and operations.

Please follow the Gunnison County Department of Health & Human Services for the current status of COVID-19 in Gunnison County.

January 5, 2022

CB Nordic was open for skiing and snowshoeing in 2020-2021, but the Nordic Center was not open to the public. For the winter of  2021-2022, we continue to implement COVID protocols in our programs, events, and services. Please respect these protocols so that we can continue to stay open and serve you!

Nordic Center

The Nordic Center IS opening its doors to the public this year, but MASKS ARE REQUIRED. No food may be consumed inside the Nordic Center. All purchases should be made online in advance to make your Nordic Center experiencer smoother. You can purchase day passes, rentals, lessons, and retail online. We will allow walk-up sales, but these will still be run through the website reservation systems. We strongly recommend you purchase all rental gear and day passes in advance. We cannot guarantee there will be rental equipment available for walk-up sales. 


Trails will be open, snow conditions permitting. Please display your trail pass visibly on the outside of your clothing so that Trail Hosts can see them easily as you ski by.
