Our Thanksgiving Camp offers clinics in intimate group settings, with personalized coaching that caters to all ability levels. We often have snow at our Nordic Center in town, but if not, we host the camp on our groomed nordic trails just 10 minutes out of town (and 1500 feet higher) at the Lily Lake Trails. Our highly qualified instructors host fun, informative clinics for everyone, from kids to never-ever adults to committed racers. Join us for the Round-Robin Refresher Thursday morning, then for our half- or full-day clinics on Friday and Saturday. The Thanksgiving Camp also features Wine & Waxing, a Winter Kick-Off Party, and a Citizens’ Race on Sunday.
The Alley Loop is not your typical American Birkebeiner Qualifier. The course winds its way through snow-laden streets, alleyways and narrow bridges in the hart of downtown Crested Butte.
