The Magic Meadows Yurt just west of Crested Butte, on the Nordic trail system, is a special place that locals and tourists enjoy every year. For those who’ve never been, it is a backcountry yurt located in the Slate River Valley just outside of town. It provides a truly magical setting for dinners, Sunday brunch, or private events. Diners ski or snowshoe to and from the yurt on an easy groomed trail, surrounded by majestic snowy peaks. You also have the option to ski or snowshoe more of the 55 km of groomed trails that we groom all day with your trail pass. Crested Butte Nordic hosts yurt dinners catered by private chef, Tim Egelhoff, several times a season and Sunday brunches most weeks from December through March. For more info head to
