Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I moved to Salida, CO in 2003 to raft guide on the Arkansas River with Independent Whitewater after guiding in Alaska, West Virginia, and Texas. I worked for the Guest Services Department at Monarch Mountain that winter. I quickly fell in love with the mountains, rivers, and people in the Arkansas River Valley. I now enjoy being the Manager of Guest Services, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, camping, and am still guiding local rivers.

Why the Owner Chose Salida, CO, USA:
I bought the Snowshoe Inn because it's as close as you can get to Monarch Mountain and because the owner, builder, and friend who previously owned it was willing to owner finance me. It's hard to get a home loan as a raft guide/ski bum!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The hand crafted Snowshoe Inn has a cozy, welcoming feel to it. It was built in 1977 with 130 year old barn wood interior from a local ranch and has hand hewn timbers from the local Lilly Mine which mined gold and silver in the 1800s. With wooden skis from the 1940s, a small library of outdoor adventure, ski, and travel books from the 1960s on, old sleds, snowshoes, ice skates, and historic Monarch photos it's like a little museum of Monarch, ski, and winter sports nostalgia.
