Peter Noon
Travel Gunnison-Crested Butte spotlighted senior Peter Noon in a recent episode of “Never-Never Land.”

Noon demonstrates how the mountains and outdoor recreation opportunities in the valley drive him to be a better student.

As Travel GCB puts it, “When you attend college in an awe-inspiring location like Colorado's Gunnison Valley, academics and recreation often have a symbiotic relationship. For Western State Colorado University Senior Peter Noon, outdoor pursuits are a motivating factor rather than a distraction.”

Upon picking up the video, Teton Gravity Research declared Western the best university for skiing and snowboarding
