Thanks for your support

We recently lost our very loved wife, mom, grandma or great-grandma, Pat Tonozzi. The outpouring of support during this time has reminded us all of why our family moved to Glenwood 44 years ago — the spectacular natural beauty of the place is matched by only the warmth and generosity of all of our neighbors. Thank you for being with us during this difficult time.

She took off at a dead run, which she has never done in the past, heading north down the Rio Grande bike path. Everyone on the trail tired to catch her. She was cornered many times.

Thanks to community for SISU

On behalf of the Mount Sopris Nordic Council I would like to thank the generous community that supported our 23rd annual Ski for Sisu skiathon. This year’s event achieved a number of records. The Nordic community turned out in record-breaking numbers, which is reflected in the money we raised for trail grooming at our local cross country ski area, Spring Gulch. It costs over $500 per day to keep Spring Gulch groomed and maintained. Approximately 20 percent of the Nordic Council’s budget is raised by this event alone.
