Calling all Ògo big or go homeÓ winter enthusiasts! Get ready to get goosebumps while you ÒOoh!Ó and ÒAhh!Ó at the impact and importance of our winter wildlands through this collection of short films. The eighteenth annual Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival will show in Crested Butte on Saturday, November 26th at the Majestic Theater. All proceeds will benefit HCCAÕs Save Red Lady campaign.
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!
