Join Us For Our Fall Clothing & Gear Swap Out with the old and in with the new! Clean out the closets and bring your lightly used, unwanted or unneeded clothing and gear to the Three Rivers Resort for a ladies (and kids) clothing and gear swap. The seasons are changing and it’s time to put away the summer wardrobe and gear. As we make the switch from summer to winter, this is a great time to go through your closet and drawers. Looking to declutter? Set an expiration date for the items in your closet. If you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in a year, it’s probably time to swap or donate it. Arrangements can be made for any unwanted clothing items left over at the end of the swap to be taken and donated to Project Hope. **Please note, any gear that is not swapped must be taken home. If you are bringing gear, you must stay until the end of the swap (2:00) or take it with you. *Suggested Donation to GVWN of $5.00
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!
