Get off the groomed trails and travel deep into the wilderness on one of our cross country ski tours. Whether you are a beginner or a track champion we have the terrain and guide to suit your individual skills and goals.
A cross country skiing tour with Irwin Guides will take you to beautiful valleys deep in the heart of the Elk Mountains. Enjoy views, sightseeing and exercise as you travel light and fast, with just a day pack and your nordic skis. Most of our cross country ski trailheads are less than a 15 minute drive from downtown Crested Butte. Looking for a lesson? Our professional guides will help you learn the basics in technique while also enjoying the beauty of the backcountry.
