Let's get together and go tour Colorado's Wine Country! Beat the off-season blues with a fabulous day trip to the North Fork Valley! We'll enjoy a comfortable (and very scenic) drive to Colorado's Wine Country, stopping for lunch along the way, and then visiting 3-4 wineries in Paonia and Hotchkiss. We'll be meeting at the 4-Way stop in Crested Butte at 9:45 AM; the van leaves at 10:00 AM. You can leave your car in the Visitor's Center parking lot for the day. We should be back around 6:00-6:30 PM. Visit our website for details and to register. Please RSVP by May 15th so we can hold this date/reservation. We need a group of 5 to hold this special price so gather some girlfriends and RSVP early!
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!
