Cross-sector collaboration is essential to a successful energy evolution that effectively supports the quality of life and related products society demands and depends on while solving for critical issues such as affordability, accessibility, climate, sustainability, poverty, justice, and energy security. Western’s first ever Energy Elevated Forum seeks to bring together students, faculty, government, communities, and the energy industry for an informed dialogue on the realities of our complex and ever-evolving energy landscape. With a solutions-oriented focus on the future, panelists and speakers will discuss challenges and opportunities in achieving reliable, affordable, accessible, clean energy for all.
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!
