Crested Butte Santa Invasion 2014 is set for December 13, 2014 Last year was the first official year of the Crested Butte Santa Ski Crawl and there were hundreds and hundreds of Santa’s and Santa’s Helpers at the Crested Butte Ski Area. The first annual Crested Butte Santa Ski Crawl was an attempt to set the record for the most skiing Santas ever – and the quest continues this year! The challenge for all “Help set a World Record and have an unforgettable experience at the same time”.
This has become an instant Classic Crested Butte Event with its combination of skiing, costumes and fun party for all.
The Santa Group Ski is for all ages and every type of snow sport enthusiasts – Snowboarders, Skiers, Snow-Bladers, everyone meets up at Uley’s Cabin (and Ice Bar) and skis down together at 3:30pm to the Base Area! It is free, you just need a ski pass for the day and a Santa suit to get in the spirit! (You can buy a Santa Suit for $20 – but you may want to buy or rent your own as last year they sold out). The Santa Pub Crawl is the adult side of the event, Adult Santas start at the Ice Bar at 2:30pm. At 3:30pm everyone skis down together from the Ice Bar at Uley’s (midmountain) to Butte 66 at the base area for more fun, then there is a free shuttle bus and continue the pub crawl downtown. A Santa suit and 5 drinks tickets, all for only $25 if you register early – $30 the day of the event.

It is part of the charm of Crested Butte for visitors, locals and second homeowners. There are plenty of luxury homes and high-end ski-in / ski-out condos at the base area, but unlike some of the other ski resort towns in Colorado that have their glitsy roots in gold and silver mining – Crested Butte was as a coal mining town. In many ways the character and attitude of the early ranchers and miners has transcended time. In Crested Butte the skiing is great, the scenery is awesome, the recreational activities in the Gunnison Valley are endless, and the people are warm, friendly and real. Come to Crested Butte, mix and mingle, relax and enjoy all there is to offer. Crested Butte: “the last great Colorado ski town” – The Santa Group Ski & The Santa Pub Crawl is just one more reason why.
