Western Ski Weekend

It’s time to hit the slopes, Mountaineer Nation.

We’re excited to welcome alumni, parents and families to the Gunnison Valley for Western Colorado University’s annual Ski Weekend. Taking place from Feb. 25-27 at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to enjoy the monumental snowfall Crested Butte has received this season, while connecting with members from the Western community around the state and nation. Here’s what we will be offering at this year’s event:

  • 20% off the best available rates for lodging at Crested Butte Mountain Resort
  • Free Romp Skis demos
  • 20% off at Crested Butte Burger Company
  • 50% off Nordic Ski rentals for February 24 – February 28.
  • 50% off Crested Butte Nordic Ski day passes for February 24 – February 28.
  • 50% off a guided tour with Crested Butte Nordic on February 27
  • Discounted tickets to both of Western’s women’s and men’s basketball games

To book your lodging:

As a Western Ski Weekend attendee, you’ll receive discounted lodging rates from February 23 to March 1. However, the lodging options for Crested Butte Mountain Resort are sold out. So, we will be offering additional lodging at The Holiday Inn Express in Gunnison at a discounted rate. This discount is the Western Alumni discount which is $139 per room. To reserve your room at this discounted rate, call the Holiday Inn Express (970) 641-1288 and let them know that you’d like to book a room with the Western Alumni Discount. Then from there, you will be able to book your room.
