The Crested Butte Nordic Team
The CBNT provides programs that meet the needs of first time skiers and elite competitors of all ages.
The mission of the CBNT is to provide young Nordic skiers and biathletes with exceptional coaching, training opportunities, and a healthy approach to sport. Our philosophy is that a fun, healthy, outdoor lifestyle is a great foundation for growth. To this end, our organization strives to provide programing that will appeal to recreational and competitive skiers alike. Ultimately, we hope participants will become life-long skiers, so we want our participants to feel that they have gained more than just technical know-how and fitness. Furthermore, our program is designed to help student athletes learn to organize, prioritize, and execute plans toward, not only sporting goals, but also life goals.
