Gunnison Sunset

This is an all day event you won’t want to miss! Join us for an 6 mile out-and-back hike up to North Pole Basin with staff from the Land Trust and Wildflower Festival. Explore pristine spruce-fir forests, alpine meadows and cascading waterfalls of North Pole Basin while learning about the conservation history of the area and the prolific wildflowers the cover the slopes and meadows. In July 2013, this area was made accessible to the public through joint efforts of Crested Butte Land Trust and Rocky Mountain Biological Lab. Space is limited to first come, first serve. For this all day event, please consider making a voluntary donation to the Wildflower Festival or Land Trust. Space is limited, email [email protected] to sign up.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

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!
