OBSERVATORY

Our most revered winter experiences range from skiing the world-class slopes of Crested Butte Mountain Resort to exploring vast backcountry trails to taking laps with friends within one of the many Nordic Centers our region has to offer. In the summer months, an impressive 750+ miles of singletrack earn the respect of downhill mountain bikers, hikers, and trail runners from all around the world. Throughout our varied public lands and wide open spaces, there’s more than enough space to satisfy any adventure.

The Gunnison Valley Observatory’s regular season schedule begins in June through the middle of September on Friday’s and Saturdays. Each week offers a specialized lecture and meeting of local astronomical minds regardless of the weather conditions.
