22nd Annual WMRT Avalanche Education Seminar
November 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:15 pmFree
WMRT is excited to host the 22nd annual avalanche education seminar. One of the best parts of our valley is the access to the backcountry. Whether you’re snowshoeing, skiing, splitboarding, or snowmobiling; you can never have too much information or preparation. Come listen to industry professionals from Irwin Guides and the Crested Butte Avalanche Center share their insights and experience in the backcountry. There will also be a raffle held with some incredible prizes, including a Never Summer splitboard. Tickets for the raffle will be available for purchase with cash.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
