backcountry ski crested butte (colo.) - March 6, 2009

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
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.
