We are beyond excited! Spring 2021 is here and that means we are already on top of the mountain getting ready for the season at Cloud Camp. We will open with some new and familiar faces ready to welcome you for the summer and our ever popular sunset flag ceremony!

Bask in the fresh air, cool breeze and spectacular views at your Cloud Camp, 3,000 feet above The Broadmoor.  When I say, “your Cloud Camp,” I mean it. Did you know that besides Thanksgiving and Christmas, Cloud Camp is available to you each season for a private buyout?  Whether it is your immediate family or close knit group of friends, you can have it all to yourselves.  Maybe for a couple of days or a week, get your favorite people together and let us take care of you for a change.  Get ready for the vacation that blends luxury and immaculate hospitality with unique Colorado outdoor adventures.

We look forward to our guests booking something new and what we like to call - Adventurous Departures! Broadmoor Outfitters is offering guests of Cloud Camp a special experience coordinated through our Cloud Camp Concierge. Hike down from Cloud Camp on the Upper/Lower Sunrise Trail to the Soaring Adventure Ground School and take part in zip lining the exhilarating Fins Course. Named for two dorsal-shaped rock outcroppings that look like fish fins, the first zip lines of the Fins Course offers excellent views of The Broadmoor Seven Falls Canyon. Then traverse on two 200 foot rope suspension bridges anchored into the rock outcroppings of the Fins, which offer amazing views of The Broadmoor and Colorado Springs. Lastly, the experience ends with a 180 foot controlled repel line that lowers guests safely back into the Seven Falls Park.

Not interested in that level of activity? How about Pickleball or disc golf?  As one of the fastest growing and easy to learn sports, pickleball is for everyone. Perhaps a bit more obscure, but just as easy to learn, is disc golf! Disc golf shares the same joys and sometimes frustrations of golf. Whether it’s sinking a long putt or squaring up your drive perfectly on the fairway, you will have the bragging rights as one of only a few who have played on the highest pickleball court or disc golf courses in the United States!

Perhaps you haven’t booked a stay at The Ranch at Emerald Valley, but would love to see our sister camp property. Venture down the MacNeil trail to enjoy the great outdoors and a magnificent lunch at The Ranch. All you have to do is let us know and we will take care of the details…

Chef Randi and her team will dazzle you with late afternoon Cooking Club and cocktails. At our glorious communal dining table, nightly feasts take their cue from the original Cooking Club with classically crafted menus and great conversation.

This season the lowering of the flag at sunset will resonate on many levels. Let’s close our evenings with S’mores by the fire pit, and heartfelt conversations that creates lasting friendships. After all, our goal is to have you thoroughly enjoy your stay with us.

Here’s to a great season and we look forward to seeing you soon!
