Local Flavours: The Complete Guide to Riding in Crested Butte, Colorado
@DetroitCity:The chance to do service to the earth is not picking up after jackasses who trash their camp spots. That is called picking up after jackasses. If you think that it is locals' duty to pick up after you because you spend money, you don't deserve to go anywhere in your 'sick camper van'. There are too many of those anyways.

Local Flavours: The Complete Guide to Riding in Crested Butte, Colorado
Wow, really stirred the hornet's nest with that one so I need to make a few things clear: My opinion is my own, and does not reflect that of the organizations I work for. I'm just someone on the ground who sees how COVID and the subsequent changes in how people are recreating this year are impacting our area. I'm fortunate to work for a great non-profit that helps mitigate these impacts and tries to improve everyone's experience when they are lucky enough to come to Crested Butte. I take pride in my work. I want people to enjoy it here when they visit. I want people to be educated, respectful, and diligent when they come here to leave it how they found it. It is not necessarily mountain bikers whom are the culprits (I only sometimes find trash on trails that mountain bikers frequent). Our backcountry has exceeded its carrying capacity this summer because of our cultural/societal changes in how people recreate during the pandemic. It has become a lot of people who are either a. new and under-educated about how to camp and be outside, b. don't care, c. desperate to find camping in an area that is already overcrowded, or d. all of the above. Add that to the infection risk associated with all of that to people I care about, I believe that it is irresponsible to market ANY tourism as business as normal this year; which this, otherwise pretty dialed although very mistimed, article seems to be doing. Also, @DetroitCity, I'm not just a crybaby local who thinks I own the land, I'm actually doing something to make everyone's experience better when they get to ride here. Seem's like you don't understand how things work here so come enjoy the trails and the community next year or whenever after. We're not all a bunch of 'get out, stay away' assholes, just very protective of a very special place that is being 'loved to death'.

As part if the CBCC crew; building and maintaining trails, and more importantly, picking up all the shit and trash people leave behind in their camp spots, I feel like this article is extremely irresponsible. It is irresponsible to advocate for more tourism in our small, isolated town during this time. Covid cases are soaring among service industry employees and people on the front lines with all the tourists. Our backcountry is getting overrun and becoming a giant clusterfuck as more people flock outside. Entire prestine meadows are being ruined by ignorant people inventing places to camp and park and the amount of shit and trash I pick up on a weekly basis is mind boggling. But hey, who am I to know, it's the cost of making money, right? 'Murica, Fuck yeah But really, please be a responsible human and come next year.

Video: The MTB Pioneer of Crested Butte - Return to Earth: The Series, Ep 3
Hey everyone! Kipp, who is one if the local riders and interviewees in this video, had a life altering crash last week riding one of our remote trails. He was life flighted out and has very, very serious injuries. He is a great dude and a huge part of our riding community in CB. If you are able, feeling generous, or just want to help a fellow mtn biker, please donate to his rehabilitation and recovery fund at Link: Thanks!

You know what they say; "If there's grass on the field, mow some lawn. If not, put the knobby's on and play in the mud."
