Winter is one of the most beautiful and enchanting seasons. It’s unique in a way that you can do different activities which you cannot do in the other three seasons. Winter is a perfect excuse to stay at home and cuddle up in your comfortable home while reading a good book and drinking hot cocoa. However, winter is also the perfect time to plan and experience the best outdoor activities.

Here in Crested Butte, we have a wide variety of outdoor activities during winter, which includes, the most common ones which are skiing and snowboarding. These activities offer people a chance to experience one of the best winter activities tourists all over come to Crested Butte for. You can hire an expert to teach you about all skill levels. During this time, there will be different trails to choose from and chairlifts with the ability to carry 20,020 people per hour, covering 1,547 acres will be accessible.

Other winter activities in Crested Butte include the Uphill Skiing, Free Guided Mountain Ski Tours, Snowshoe Tours, Snow Biking, Snowmobile Tours, Fat Biking, Crested Butte’s wellness retreat, Crested Butte Nordic Magic Meadow Yurt Dinner Experience, Winter Trail Rides, Cross Country Skiing and many more.

What’s new and trending now is the Elan Women’s Weekend which will be from January 19th through the 21st.

Before I discuss this event, let us know what the Elan brand is all about. Elan is a Slovenian company which specializes in the production of sporting equipment. These products include men, women and children apparel (mostly sportswear) and gear, miscellaneous winter accessories, sailboats from 30 to 50 ft length, motor yachts, kayaks, canoes, tennis and badminton rackets, table-tennis equipment, ice picks, mountain rescue gear, racing and recreational sleights and many more equipment for sports facilities. However, the company is most famously known for its skis and snowboards. From its humble beginnings, this enterprise grew into this successful company throughout the years.

Now that we know about the company, let’s talk about Elan Women’s Weekend. This legendary supplier of handcrafted skis is now teaming up with Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) to bring the spirit of “Always Good Times” to life at this very first annual Elan Big Mountain Women’s Weekend from January 19th through the 21st.

The event starts off with a welcome party on Friday night, January 19. Then, the event will have free demos and guided instruction all day Saturday, January 20, and half day Sunday, January 21, which includes lunch. The event also includes an awesome Saturday evening party. Lastly, an après-ski event on-mountain, after lessons are completed on Sunday, January 21.

This weekend is all about women and Elan’s all-female W Studio team from around the globe will be here to spearhead this event. They will provide their expertise and passion to be ambassadors to make sure that everyone will have the best experience, the best lessons, the best equipment while having a great time. These women are also continuing a decades-old tradition of producing handcrafted skis.

Krista Crabtree, W Studio’s ambassador, is a ski industry veteran in all mediums. Whether it be coaching, organizing women’s trips and writing, her goal is to make sure everyone’s will have an elevated skiing experience. The coming weekend will provide women a one of a kind ski experience which will include demos of the award-winning Elan women’s Ripstick Freeride skis.
