Cantrell Gives Resort Update

Published by at 6:35 pm under General Information

Last week Bruce Cantrell of Cuchara Mountain Resort provided a comprehensive update to La Veta and Cuchara area residents regarding the continuing work to revitalize the Resort.  The comments were provided at the Saturday community meeting and comprehensive planning discussion.  About 40 people attended.

Nordic skiing is now open to the public for cross-country and snow shoeing.  Trails have been groomed and access use is free.  Some of the older chairlifts have already been removed and others are being re-habilitated. Meetings with US Forest Service continue to look positive.  Some modest Grants have been received thus far.  The rate and success of the Resort Revitalization will begin to depend upon other upcoming grant applications, such as the March submission for $1.5 mill in matching grants from the US Economic Development Agency.  Other applications are being submitted to US Dept. of Agriculture, Gates Family Foundation and South Central Council of Governments.
