Gunnison Trails Winter Blast


Friday, February 23, 2024


The temps are cold, the days are short, but we’ve got singletrack on the mind! Come celebrate the release of winter alongside our incredible trail community at Gunnison Trails’ 9th Annual Winter Blast presented by Bluebird Real Estate! We’ll be celebrating another winter season of grooming trails at Hartman Rocks and sharing our plans for the upcoming trail work season. Held at the University Center Ballroom on the WCU campus, doors open at 5:30pm for Dinner, Libations, Socializing & Huge Silent Auction. Dinner will be served around 6:30pm.

Bring along the kiddos – KIDS EAT FREE! Kids dinner and seating is in the North conference room across the hall from the ballroom. The South conference room will host fun activities! Sitters will be on hand in both rooms.
