The Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum invites you to continue the conversation. Over the winter, the Museum is hosting a series of panels exploring the 1970s and the decisions that were made in this decade that continue to influence the development of this mountain town today.
Crested Butte in the 1970s laid the framework for the community we know today. In this decade, there was an explosion of creativity, proliferation of new activities and sports, and a political takeover. This was a riotous time, establishing some of our most loved traditions and sense of community character.
Join the Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum, December 18th at 7 pm to explore the rise of sports and recreation in the ‘70s through discussion and storytelling. A panel of guests who conquered mountains and blazed trails will share stories and memories around telemarking, Gelande jumping, klunking, softball, and more. Panelists Craig Hall, Don Cook, Jim Dirkson, and Sue Navy will lead discussions exploring sports and recreation in the 1970s.
We invite those who also share in these memories to come and join the conversation to share stories of your own. The Museum encourages the audience to come with questions and stories to help us truly understand how the 1970s laid the foundation for the community we know today.
