Join us on Saturday, December 10, 2022, from 4-7 pm at the Lodge at Mountaineer Square in Mt. Crested Butte for the Annual Light Up The Night Winter Celebration! Free parking is available in the CBMR dirt pay lot after 3 pm and mountain express busses will be running every 15 minutes from the Town of Crested Butte. 

Enjoy the lighting of the tree and Menorah along with bucket rides, live music, and pictures with Santa and the Snow Queen! Additional offerings throughout the event include hot cocoa, winter wonderland face painting, a snowflake cookie decorating station, arts and crafts activities by the Children’s Trailhead Museum, and a visit from Santa Paws!

This year we’re partnering with Gunnison Toys for Tots. Please bring new, unused, and unopened toys for donation! Let’s bring joy to local children in need this holiday season.
