Partnerships & Marketing Opportunities

Our role at the Gunnison-Crested Butte Tourism Association is to promote the Gunnison Valley as a year round vacation destination. We have partnerships with the Chambers of Commerce and local businesses to bring people to the Gunnison Valley and deliver a fantastic visitor experience.

Our stated goals for 2018 are to outpace our competitive set in growth in occupancy (as measured by DestiMetrics) and hit 70% load factors on all MRG flights into the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport. During the winter months, we focus on Alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, and fat biking. During the summer, our largest efforts are invested in mountain biking, but we also promote the great variety of experiences in the Gunnison Valley.

Gunnison Valley Event and Marketing Grant Cycle

New for 2018 are two event and marketing grant cycles. The first grant cycle will be for 2018 spring/summer/fall events/marketing in Gunnison, Crested Butte, and Mount Crested Butte. Applications for this Gunnison Valley Grant Cycle are due by April 2, 2018. Awards will be announced on the week of April 15, 2018.

Stay tuned for more information on our Winter Event and Marketing grants for Gunnison, Crested Butte, and Mt. Crested Butte coming in Fall 2018.
