Down and Dirty

2017_Down-and-DirtyDown and Dirty Mountain Manners for Locals

June 3, 9:00 am

Mountain Manners was created as a response from locals about “loving our public lands to death.”

Collaboratively conceived and sponsored by the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival, Mountain Manners serve as a relatable, easy to remember, fun and eye-catching educational campaign to teach recreators about outdoor etiquette. Mountain Manners also sponsors Peak Protectors, a training for local citizens to educate recreators about proper outdoor etiquette while on the trails.

Offered early in the season for locals to learn how to treat our “crib” right!

Register for any Mountain Manners Stewardship Course through the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival online at www.crestedbuttewildflowerfestival.com.

“Tops! I see why this is rated #1. Every time I return to the Grand Lodge I feel very welcomed. From the greeting by the bellman, to the prompt front desk service, to clean, comfortable large rooms, it is the best of the mountain. I love the Grand Lodge is so closed to the ski lift, biking trails, restaurants and shops. The mountain express bus is great for a quick trip down the mountain to the town of CB. Try the restaurant for breakfast, and evening adult beverages by the fire. I rate the Grand Lodge 5 stars!”
