It is no surprise that Governor Hickenlooper calls our community an anchor for Colorado’s outdoor recreation industry. Colorado’s Grand Valley offers opportunity and lifestyle most never even imagine. With an average of over 250 days of sunshine and the ability to pave trails from snowcapped mountains to the desert in the same day, our residents proudly blur the lines between work and play.
