This ski area has been closed since 2000; however, The Cuchara Foundation has been working with Huerfano County Public Park to rehabbing Lift 4 at Cuchara Mountain Park and return skiing to Cuchara over the last few years. They are close to final inspections and certification of the chairlift. They are working hard to bring truly affordable, family-friendly lift-served skiing to Cuchara Mountain Park for Winter 2022/23!
