Gunnison Rising is a place to live, work, play and raise a family in a safe, walkable environment. It’s an escape from big-city living, offering the opportunity to exhale and breathe in fresh, mountain air and a small-town environment with all the amenities to support a lifestyle most people only dream about. The energetic campus of Western Colorado University is located adjacent to Gunnison Rising, providing a wealth of opportunities to learn, help your business grow through the ICELab, and enjoy concerts, plays, athletic events and more.


Wherever you are at in your life—raising kids, empty nesters, single, a couple with no kids or retired—Gunnison Rising is a place to interact with your neighbors, people you see everyday and around town at the grocery store, bank, school and farmers’ market. You can ride your bike a few blocks to the post office or for miles exploring local trails and walk across the street for live music and movies at I Bar Ranch, part of Gunnison Rising.

LIFESTYLE & RECREATION just outside your door

The endless walking, biking and hiking trails within and surrounding Gunnison Rising will allow you to meet up with friends and enjoy a life of leisure that is normally reserved for a vacation. The 7 miles of Tomichi Creek that meanders adjacent to Gunnison Rising is an ideal environment for nature lovers and people who love to fish. Just down the road are Jorgenson Ice Rink & Event Center, Gunnison Whitewater Park, Dos Rios Golf Club, Hartman Rocks Recreation Area, and Blue Mesa Reservoir. Ski and snowboarding enthusiasts have two great choices nearby: Monarch Mountain to the east and Crested Butte Mountain Resort to the north. For the ultimate in simplicity, ride the free RTA bus from Gunnison and be dropped off at the base of CBMR.
