Congregation B'nai Butte

Crested Butte, Colorado

Megan Collins


Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Megan was raised in a traditionally Jewish home but did not consider herself religious.

Megan traveled to Israel on Taglit Birthright and, as a student at CU-Boulder, found Adventure Rabbi, a congregation that celebrates Jewish holidays in the outdoors. "I loved the fact that we were in the outdoors and being Jewish."

Skiing lured Megan to Crested Butte, where she continues to celebrate Jewish holidays in nature. She feels very much at home in CB and welcomed by B'nai Butte. Megan also likes biking, hiking, camping, and tennis. When she's not playing, she works in marketing for Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
