Help Set a World Record at Crested Butte’s Annual Santa Ski and Crawl, Slated for Dec. 9

 

MOUNT CRESTED BUTTE, Colorado — Help set the World Record for the most skiing Santas at Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) on Dec. 9, 2017. It doesn’t matter if you ski, snowboard or snowblade, all Santas are welcome at the 5th annual Crested Butte Santa Ski.

This year, event organizers hope to break the event’s previously set World Record (in 2015) for the most number of skiers in full Santa costumes — 827 skiing Santas! The best way to kick off the holiday season is with some turns at Crested Butte Mountain Resort and a classic Crested Butte costume party. 

This iconic event also features a Santa Pub Crawl option in town and discounted lift tickets for Santas— just $25 — for skiers and riders decked out in a full Santa suit, valid that day only. In order to qualify, participants must wear a red top, red pants, a Santa hat and beard. You can make your own suit, use an old one or purchase one in advance from ...Read more

Bringing a Little Grace to the Slopes
CBMR is proud to partner with Mountain Manners, a local educational campaign and advocacy group focused on teaching recreators proper outdoor etiquette. The initiative began as an education campaign surrounding Crested Butte’s famed Wildflower Festival, and the resort felt the message was just as important for winter. The campaign incorporates 10 “Manners,” of which you’ll find a shortened version detailed below, as a reminder that we can all be a little more gracious and kind to each other, and the environment.

Enjoy these fun, memorable tips aimed at helping everyone remember it’s cool to be kind.
We invite you to come and use our inbound mountain terrain, learn Mountain Manners and pass it on, so we can help do our part to protect what’s in- AND out-of-bounds. For the expanded version of CBMR’s winter-focused Mountain Manners, visit www.skicb.com/information/winter-mountain-manners
