Alley Loop

February 2, 2019

alley loop nordic race crested butte colorado

The Alley Loop is not your typical American Birkebeiner Qualifier.  The course starts, finishes, and progresses through the heart of downtown Crested Butte, while meandering over snow laden streets, narrow alleys, and one lane bridges.  At any given time, you may be cheered on by alley revelers, find yourself surrounded by Oompa Loompa’s, or skiing along side a crazy connected train of costume assemblage…  Racers are sometimes forced into making daring passes, and depending on their luck, may even get waylaid on a bridge for a brief moment.  Once you make it through town, you are rewarded by pristine tracks and epic views on the surrounding Crested Butte Nordic trail network.  If you like normal, you may want to look for another race.  If you are up for anything, this is right up your alley!
