On Aug. 15, 2016, The El San Juan Hotel & Casino will temporarily close to undergo a multimillion dollar renovation; the changes are set for an end date of early 2017. Guest rooms, pool area, meeting and entertainment spaces, food and beverage venues and spa and fitness facilities will all be renovated.

“El San Juan is truly a one-of-a-kind property that we look forward to revitalizing," says Andro Nodarse-León of León Mayer & Co., one of the owners and asset manager of the resort. The updates will pay homage to the historical status of this property as an iconic luxury lifestyle and entertainment resort, while incorporating a playfully elegant feeling to the modernized setting.” 

Colorado has 58 mountain peaks exceeding 14,000 feet, known locally as “fourteeners” or “14ers.” This is more than any other state and includes the 14,115-foot Pikes Peak, where standing at the summit in 1893 inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem “America” that today is known as the song “America the Beautiful.”

 

For someone who cringes at simply popping a cork on bubbly, sabering offers an alternative, as long as skillfully hefting a heavy sword is doable. It’s certainly impressive enough to watch, but how does someone add this skill to their repertoire?
