Things to do

Wonder at the majesty of the Rockies in Gunnison

Gunnison's treasures rise and fall all around the town center. It’s hard to miss the great peaks of Mount Baldy and Fairview soaring on the horizon, and you're sure to pass the Blue Mesa Reservoir on your way into town – a summertime mecca for sailors and water skiers. But that's just a taster because the Crested Butte Mountain Resort also hides in these hills, touting speedy black runs and meandering, tree-lined blues alike. And the iconic Grand Mesa looms just to the north, complete with carved plateaus and scenic byways by the bucket load.


Going wild in Gunnison

Whether it's a cabin hidden in the woods beneath Fossil Ridge, or a riverside hut with roaring rapids on the doorstep, it's likely you'll be enjoying some form of outdoors adventure. Rafting and hiking and mountain biking are uber-popular pursuits, but so are long drives on the West Elk Loop, or camping jaunts into the national forest. And in winter? Monarch Mountain and Crested Butte have powdered runs aplenty.
