County purchases Cuchara acreage for public park

“(Published: Feb. 2, 2017) The county closed on the purchase of 49 acres near the base of the former Cuchara Mountain Resort on Friday, January 27. County Commissioners say the land will be used as a public mountain park. Huerfano County purchased the land from QE Ventures, Inc. for $150,000 using funds to be donated by the Cuchara Foundation.

County Administrator John Galusha said signage is posted to direct the public to access the parcel near the base of the former ski area.

A Mountain Park Advisory Committee has been formed to draft rules and begin developing a master plan for the area.”
What this means is that the National Forest and amenities on the mountain will soon be accessible. It was previously privately owned and in tax delinquent status, thus chained off, preventing mountain access.
