Winter in Crested Butte and Gunnison is a revered time for local residents because of the abundance of special events taking place. Crested Butte home owners can simply walk into their backyard to experience the sheer beauty that the local area has to offer, and visitors flock to the area in January when snow conditions are pristine. Here’s a look at some of the events and travel deals that are taking place in Crested Butte this January!
Ski or Ride Package: If you’ve always wanted to learn how to ski or snowboard, consider Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s $59 Beginner Ski or Ride Package. It’s all part of “Learn to Ski Month,” which offers adults ages 15 and older significant savings on ski and snowboard lessons. The package is inclusive of an all-day lift ticket, so once you get the hang of things, you can hit the slopes and practice what you’ve learned! Liftopia is also offering a 50 percent discount on equipment at the CBMR Adventure Center.
Stay and Ski: For out-of-town visitors, the Stay and Ski Deal at Almont’s Three Rivers Resort is a smoking deal! The package is available from January 6 through February 6, and again from March 24 through April 6. For $66 per person, you can nestle into a fabulous lodge-style room just 20 minutes from Crested Butte. Prices are based on double-occupancy and a two-night stay is required.
Skate Ski Clinics: Mark your calendar for January 2, February 6 and March 6 at 1 p.m. That’s when the Crested Butte Nordic Center is offering free skate ski clinics. Participants can then take advantage of reduced pricing on ski rentals. A one-hour lesson normally costs $45 for adults and $35 for children/seniors (exclusive of equipment), so this is a tremendous value!
Crested Butte Songwriters Festival: The weekend of January 17-18 is when the 3rd annual Crested Butte Songwriters Festival kicks off. Here, you can listen to musicians like Thompson Square, Casey Beathard, Dean Dillon, and Kree Harrison from the most recent season of American Idol. A variety of other local songwriters will also take the stages during this fun-filled event, including at local hotspots at 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday night.
