Live. Work. Play.
VIBRANT local ECONOMY
Located on U.S. Highway 50, Gunnison is the county seat and largest community in Gunnison County. It has all the amenities needed for locals and tourists who seek a taste of a divine place to live or just relax for a while. Set up shop or move your business/job to beautiful southwest Colorado and set your own schedule in order to get outdoors or tap into the cultural scene on breaks, before or after work hours, and on weekends. Learn how to work better, rather than live to work.
The new modern era of work is here, and Gunnison could be your home base. High-speed communications and greater workplace flexibility make basing in a beautiful mountain destination a reality. Don’t worry; you won’t be going it alone! There is an active business community and a growing posse of remote workers. The Gunnison Area Chamber of Commerce, Western Colorado University, Gunnison Rotary Club and Gunnison Valley Women’s Network are just a few of the groups that connect business people and resources.
Gunnison has technology and other amenities and services needed to run a successful business or work remotely, including the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport and easy access to other regional airports in Montrose, Grand Junction and Colorado Springs and Denver International Airport for broader options. The mountain lifestyle attracts all sorts of entrepreneurs and year-round and seasonal talent, as well as university students earning undergraduate and graduate degrees. It’s precisely the reason Gunnison Rising is including a Makers District for small-scale makers and tinkerers like crafters of custom skis and bikes, brewers, distillers and all sorts of creatives. The ICELab all-in-one business resource center is next door at Western Colorado University.
