BA in Recreation and Outdoor Education


Kelzey originally came to Gunnison to ski and attend school at Western State Colorado University, majoring in Recreation and Outdoor Education.  After one summer in Crested Butte, she realized how amazing the valley is, and fell in love with the awesome recreational activities available all year long. Her summertime and fall is filled with biking and hiking adventures, while winter time is for waking up early getting fresh tracks on pow days.
