18th Annual Spring Retreat


Join us at Cooks’ Cabin in the Blanco Basin in southwest Colorado for the 18th Annual Spring Retreat. Our 3500 square foot log home with spa can accommodate 20 or so. There are five bedrooms and a large second floor loft with a total of ten beds and lots of room for mattresses, foam pads, and sleeping bags. We have lots of sheets, pillows, and blankets.

We are located at 8100′ between the Rio Blanco and Fish Creek, adjacent to the South San Juan National Forest on the south and east. Ski terrain varies. Any level of skier can be accommodated. We should expect some snow. Skiing is possible right out the front door with trails of various lengths and difficulty, some with broken trails and many areas to explore and enjoy the shared task of breaking trail. There are miles of plowed roads and accessible miles of snowmobile traveled roads. Bring your own ski and snow shoe equipment.

The 13.5 miles on the year-round cleared Blanco Basin Road can be most often driven by any car, but front-wheel or 4-wheel drive is sometimes needed. I will coordinate the travel arrangements.

The cost is $25 per person per night. Come for the number of nights that work for you. Please pay at the weekend. Please bring your own drinks and food. Breakfasts will be as simple or as complex as you desire. Lunches will be snacks while skiing. Saturday evening we will probably want to coordinate a communal meal around what we can share together. We have the basic seasonings, etc. If you need a particular ingredient, pot or pan, check with me.

The essence of the weekend is in the spirit of camaraderie. We continually enjoy proffering to others the opportunities to be at peace in the blanketed Blanco Basin. please bring what you wish to share via poetry, songs, stories, queries, games, talking sticks, drums, and other musical instruments. The time can be as laid back or structured as you wish to make it.
