Upcoming Events

Published by under General Information

Kurt at La Veta Inn reports a record dining crowd this past weekend.  Alys served over 50 people for dinner Fri. nite and another 60 on Sat. nite. Congrats to all.  If you haven’t tried it yet then you’re in for a treat.   The week of  60 to 70 degree temps ended on another nice warm note  today.  But forecast calls for a real drop in temps the next few days with possible mountain snow in the mix too.  More typical of November.

Mark your calendars for upcoming noteworthy events that include:

Huerfano County Park Trails open house on Wed. Nov. 17 at 4:30 to 7:00 at the La Veta Community Center.    Come to the La Veta Performing Arts Center for Happy Hollandaise production beginning the weekend of Nov. 26 – 28.    Holiday Art Feast, a progressive dinner fundraiser for SPACe Gallery will continue its tradition this year on Saturday, December 4.

Zipping Right Along

Published by under General Information

Great responses to yesterday’s post about the new Cuchara Zip Line.  Thank you all.  And even more exciting news today.


Everything is now zipping along at a fast pace on the Mountain.  The Rec District received formal legal approval recently.  And the Foundation is getting poised to anticipate receipt of the donation of land and buildings from the Cantrells. 

The Cuchara Valley Recreational Foundation (on behalf of the Cuchara Mountain Resort) has today announced a community wide Fundraising Campaign with a goal of raising $500,000 toward improvements at Cuchara Mountain Resort.  This represents a major effort along with other grants, fundraisers and loans.  John Fuller has already stepped forward with a generous contribution to kick things off… and others are lining up to help ensure the success of this incredible project. There are many ways to help, with financial aid, labor donations and other overall support. Help us bring  jobs and entertainment opportunities to foster a healthy economy. 

Bruce Cantrell announced the new fundraiser. “As a community owned and community run non-profit organization, we will depend upon a number of different funding resources.” Cantrell said, “This fundraising campaign is one way  that residents and visitors  can get behind the project and help to ensure our success in the community.

So step right up and jump on board to show your support in any way you can.  Don’t be left behind.
