Race #2

42k Skate —  Alley Loop Nordic Marathon

An American Birkebeiner qualifier, with a twist…, the Alley Loop is also Crested Butte’s largest costume party and one of the biggest Nordic ski races in the state of Colorado. The Alley Loop’s unique course starts and finishes in the heart of downtown Crested Butte. In between, it meanders through snow-lined alleys, behind false-fronted stores and restaurants, over footbridges and alongside residences. The course then heads out to the immaculately groomed Nordic trails around the Town of Crested Butte.
