Tuck Naked In Crested Butte Poster
The Tuck Naked In Crested Butte Poster is fun, and “G Rated”. I saw the announcement that Tuck would be signing the Tuck Naked poster as a fundraiser for the Crested Butte Museum.
And of course I had to go support the museum, and I got the opportunity to talk with Tuck about how he got to be naked and on this poster…?
According to Tuck, back in the early ’70s there was a gal Kitty Therman (not to be confused with the current Crested Butte gal named “Tiddy”) who decided to ski the last Crested Butte ski run of the year – Naked!
The next year there were some additional people who thought this would also be a fun thing to do…
Then the “whole town” decided this would be a fun thing to do.
This must have been a different era as now people in Crested Butte marvel in the opportunity to Dress Up in crazy costumes and go ski – but in the early 1970s they were taking their clothes off!
This story made it’s way into SKI Magazine – and evidently also PLAYBOY Magazine…

The People Make Crested Butte Special
People always ask me what makes Crested Butte a special place. There are LOTS of things – but the charm and character of the people in the community is one thing that sets Crested Butte apart. I often marvel that we have some famous people who live here or have second homes, we have some very affluent people who live here or have second homes – but the focus is not on their fame or fortune. What makes Crested Butte special is that people love Crested Butte because you can sit down on a park bench in town strike up a conversation. Regardless of the stature of the person – it is nice to talk about the awesome powder, the great hike the pristine fly fishing, a wonderful meal at one of the many great restaurants in town, or the tales of how back in 1973 for some reason people were skiing naked in Crested Butte…
About The Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum
People used to hang out at Tony’s Conoco, and that hasn’t changed. To this day, you’ll see people occupying our front benches.
Tony’s, or “The Hardware,” was the longest running business in Crested Butte, beginning as a blacksmith shop in 1883 and later becoming a garage and hardware store before closing in 1996. Items on display in the front portion of the Museum are the exact items that were for sale throughout the years of Tony’s Conoco, serving as a memorial to a beloved local hangout.
Tony’s Becomes the Museum – In 2001, the Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum had outgrown its space. Board members with a love for Crested Butte’s past and a vision for the Museum’s future developed a plan to purchase and preserve Tony’s Conoco, a beloved local landmark, while also getting the Museum the space it needed. Museum fans rallied around the idea and raised $1.2 Million in 11 months to buy the building and turn it into a museum.
