Annual Volunteer Weekend and Volunteer Party
August 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
What: Each year, CBMBA volunteers come out for a full weekend of trail work and good times. CBMBA’s Volunteer Party will take place on Saturday evening at the campsite beginning at 6pm, and we will honor our 2022 “Keeper Of The Trail” at that time. As always, we will have prizes and giveaways. When: Saturday 8/13 and Sunday 8/14, beginning work at 10am each day. We recommend camping out with us on Saturday night! The Volunteer Party and raffle will begin at 6pm on Saturday. Location is TBD. Check CBMBA’s website for more details.
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!
