backcountry ski crested butte (colo.)
Trip to Crested Butte for skiing or to explore town (Colorado's largest national historic district). The Crested Butte Nordic Center sponsors the annual 22.5 K backcountry ski race on March 7th ('Super Tour') that traverses the mountains above Gothic. Light ski gear appropriate (depending on conditions), but most of those doing it would prefer a medium-to-wide touring/backcountry set-up. Beacon, shovel, probe, and skins required. NTD-MSD. Fee: $35, www.cbnordic/programs_events.html. Car riders welcome- to share driving costs (.15 per mile/ plus gas). I will be staying at the International Lodge and Hostel in Crested Butte. Please contact organizer by February 27th to register.
