Glenwood Canyon Resort launches new Web siteGlenwood Canyon Resort, formerly known as Rock Gardens Resort, launched a new Web site, http://www.glenwoodcanyonresort.com. The site features improvements that are currently underway at the campground with the new resort cabins, camper cabins, RV sites, and other facilities. “There are several great photos on the Web site that show what the interiors of the resort cabins will look like next year,” said Kathy Schneider, Glenwood Canyon Resort co-owner, in a press release.The first step of the redevelopment includes 10 resort cabins, 11 camper cabins, 11 new RV spots, a new group tent area, a new waste treatment facility, a new bathhouse with laundry and a game room. The resort cabins are fully furnished with a private bedroom, bath, spacious loft, full kitchen, living room, dining area, and deck. Camper cabins are designed for those who want more of a rustic camping experience without the hassle of hauling a camper or setting up a tent. The new RV sites will accommodate 40 foot rigs and offer full hook-ups for water, electricity, sewer, cable TV, and high-speed internet. The resort cabins should open in time for Memorial Day in May 2005. CMC honors two staff membersColorado Mountain College Roaring Fork campus recently named its faculty of the year.Fay Meyer is the adjunct faculty member of the year, and Cathy Markuson is the faculty member of the year. The day was emotional for both Markuson and her colleagues, as they are both preparing for her retirement. Markuson learned as much as anyone possibly could in the span of time she’s been at the college. She began working for CMC in 1987, and since then, her role here has constantly evolved to meet the demands of the ever-changing face of the CMC student. Her official last day, for all of her full-time jobs, was Dec.14, but she will return to CMC in February as an adjunct faculty member.As a physical activities instructor, Meyer has affected the lives – and health – of 50 or more students (on average) per semester since she began teaching for Colorado Mountain College in 2002. In an era when this country is the least fit and most obese of any country in the world, there’s no more appropriate time than the present for Colorado Mountain College to promote the idea that taking care of one’s body is equally as important as taking care of one’s mind. Because Fay teaches for other organizations and is a personal trainer, she is well-known for being one of the most fun yet demanding instructors in the Roaring Fork Valley.
