Join us Saturday, July 10, for an evening of incredible scenery, delicious food, and mingling with friends who support conservation in the Gunnison Valley. Bring your cowgirl boots and your big belt buckles, this year’s event comes with a theme! COVID has kept us all inside for too long, so we’re going big, bold and western.
At six o’clock, the festivities will kick off with cocktails, live music by Floodgate Operators, and a silent auction. After dinner, Auctioneer Adam Kevil will lead us through a rip roaring live auction to raise money for land conservancy. We will also play a game of heads or tails ($10 at the door per ticket, 6 for $50, or a baker’s dozen for $100) to win a townie bike donated by Big Al’s Bicycle Heaven.
Michael Marsee of Hogwood Barbecue will prepare a fabulous barbeque to match our big western theme, and Montanya Rum, Buckel Wine, and Irwin Brewing will supply our libations. Let’s get together to celebrate conservation and local flavor!

July 24 - Grin and Bear it Trail Run! 9:00 a.m. Get tickets

grin and bear it trail runFor three decades The Grin & Bear It has stood as Crested Butte’s oldest trail challenge,
historically run as an out-and-back sprint from Town, to Green Lake and back.

This course starts & finishes in the open gravel area in front of the ​CB Nordic Center (620 2nd. Street).
Start facing to the ​North West​ (towards the grove of cottonwood trees). Depart the open gravel area which rapidly transforms into singletrack as you depart the trees. Singletrack continues for approximately 100 yards, here the trail makes an abrupt ​U turn​ directing you onto an elevated traverse back the direction you just approached from. You will now be running southward above the start area you just departed from.In less than .25 miles the singletrack intersects a primitive rocky road, turn ​RIGHT​. Climb the very short incline to where the double track intersects a dirt graded subdivision road (Journey’s End Rd.). Turn ​RIGHT​ on to Journey’s End Rd. (look for municipal signage pointing you to Green Lake)Less than .5 mile up this road, another sign will direct you to turn ​LEFT​, at the Green Lake trailhead where singletrack recommences.
Switchback your way up through dark timber and a rolling traverse until getting dumped out on to another primitive double track road. At the top of this climb, you will again intersect a dirt graded subdivision road. Here a sign directs you to turn ​RIGHT​.  About .5 mile running the graded road, another sign directs you to resume the singletrack trail, turning to the​ LEFT.
Wind your way up through more dark timber and intermittent meadows. The trail gets a bit more rugged on this upper singletrack portion. Stay ​STRAIGHT​ at the intersection for ​Trail 436​. Continue past an initial pond for .3 mile to arrive at the majestic emerald Green Lake shore.After tapping the towering ​ponderosa pine​ standing at the bank of the lake, ​racers make an about-face, setting themselves on a 4.5 mile melee, descending 2,100 feet back to the Nordic Center
