  • Notes

  • Publication Year: 1930

A hotel for skiers, Jim Creek Lodge, has been opened at West Portal, Colorado, on the western slope of the Continental Divide. It is reached in two and one-half hours from Denver by the Moffat Tunnel. The hotel, elevation 9,000 ft., stands at the foot of James Peak and others which attain about 13,000 feet. It will undoubtedly give a strong stimulus to winter mountaineering in the Colorado Rockies. The skiing is good until May.
