Gunnison is a mountain town in the state of Colorado.

Located in Southwestern Colorado, Gunnison is far from Denver and off the beaten path... unlike many of Colorado’s ski areas located along interstates or major population areas. Gunnison is a bedroom community located about a half hour drive from the Crested Butte Ski Resort.

The valley contains the Victorian towns of Gunnison and Crested Butte.
