"Tuck Naked" Poster Signing! @ Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum

Join the Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum and living legend Tuck for a “Tuck Naked” poster signing, Friday, February 28th, 5 pm to 7 pm.  This is your chance to own a piece of history and support the museum. A limited supply of the iconic “Tuck Naked” poster will be available for purchase at the event, $40 for members and $50 for non-members.

Mountain Man, Olympic athlete, and Vietnam veteran Donald “Tuck” Tucker came to Crested Butte in 1971. For Tuck, Crested Butte saved his “a**” and in return, this community fell in love with his over the top personality. In 2003, Tuck was approached by Andrew and Paul Hooge for a photoshoot that would become the Tuck Naked poster. Their first attempts took place in April above the old T-Bar hill with Tuck in his well-worn telemark gear. After these photos did not turn out the way they hoped, Andrew called on photographer Tim Stillo. A rowdy photoshoot at Stillo’s studio turned out the picture they needed.

Also available for purchase is Andrew Hooge’s “Fit Skiing” book and poster featuring photos by Tom Stillo.
