Elk Avenue Scramble & Illuminated Disco

As a prelude to the Alley Loop Nordic Marathon, Crested Butte Nordic & Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties will bring further action and entertainment to Elk Avenue – Friday, February 4th from 2:30 to 8:00 PM. Festivities include a nordic ski scramble challenge, involving costume changes, dragging an "awkward load" and a galande jump for sprint time subtractions! Starting at 5:30 PM an illuminated street party will unfold on Elk Avenue with live DJ performance. Events are free and open to the general public.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
