Wax ‘em up for the 29th annual


For the past 28 years, Nordic skiers of all ages and abilities have lined up in downtown Crested Butte for the Alley Loop race. Friday and Saturday, February 6-7, it’s all happening again.
The event has morphed, as of late, into more than just the Alley Loop race but more of an Alley Loop weekend complete with the prestigious Nordic race, a pub-crawl on skis and, yes, even a Fat Bike race.
