Gypsum, Co., the rugged ranching town, lies west of world-class ski areas Vail and Beaver Creek. Its name derives from the mineral deposits of gypsum found nearby. Gypsum is crushed and formed into boards to make drywall, which is used in just about every commercial and residential structure.

Cafes and restaurants fill the downtown area, along with eight parks. A walking path encircles the town hall and runs along Frontage Road.

There are several recreational opportunities available at Sylvan Lake State Park, about 40 miles southeast of Gypsum. In the summer, Sylvan Lake is an ideal spot for fishing, boating, hiking and picnicking. National forest lands adjacent to the lake allow for longer excursions to scenic mountain lakes. Big-game hunting and wildlife watching takes over town as the aspens turn to waving hills of gold each fall. In the winter, ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are popular pursuits.
