Each session of The Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp is a week-long. The program is available to 120 people in the month of October 2014,  and participants stay at a hotel near the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Co. . It starts with an overall assessment of your state of wellness including nutrition, metabolic fitness, sleep, mindset and stress.. The program also includes education, physical activity and self-discovery so ensure you have the tools and strategies necessary to effectively start your weight-loss transformation. After completing this first week on-site, participants have the opportunity to continue the program in three additional phases, concluding with coming back to celebrate their successes in one year.

Participants who choose to complete the whole program will go from their week at the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center to 15 weeks of applying the principles. Guidance is continually  given during weekly online sessions with your transformation coach. Bi-weekly sessions will teach you how to live in your new body while continuing your progress and finally, you will be able to reconnect with your team and gain recognition for your success!

A Summer to Remember

If someone were to ask you what your favorite memory is, what would you say? A couple years ago if someone were to ask me that question I probably would have said swimming with dolphins, shopping on Rodeo, or something else that has absolutely no relevance to my life or my future. If someone were to ask me now, I would 100% say my summer internship at The Broadmoor.

Pic 1

This summer I have learned more, seen more, and experienced more than I could have ever imagined possible during a three-month period. I came into my internship knowing nothing more than what it was like to be a guest at a hotel.

CheesecakeCrème Brulee Cheesecake from La Taverne

While working in Human Resources and Employment I got to see the process of hiring and training exceptional employees while also getting the opportunity to be an exceptional employee at the Golf Club Dining Room. I also got the opportunity to attend several training classes, visit our newest property, Cloud Camp, shadow different departments around the hotel, like Loss Prevention and the Front Desk, and learn even more than what my internship entitled.

CloudCampThe view from Cloud Camp

During my internship I gained extensive knowledge in Human Resources and hospitality. While at The Broadmoor, I also made lasting relationships that made it hard to leave. My co-workers and fellow interns became my family and close friends over the summer and I can’t thank them enough for everything they taught me throughout my time there.

Processed with Rookie

Working in Human Resources and Employment has opened my eyes to all the hard work that goes into running a hotel smoothly and upholding high standards. It was an amazing learning experience within the hospitality industry.

6th Annual Wine Tasting, Cooking, and Tennis Camp

The 6th Annual Wine Tasting, Cooking, and Tennis Camp takes place at The Broadmoor on September 5 through 7 in three days packed with tennis lessons, wine tasting, and culinary delights.

The first day of camp includes tennis lessons followed by a wine tasting with appetizers. This year’s event is especially exciting as the tasting occurs in The Broadmoor’s new Fish House, located adjacent to our East Course. Not only will participants be some of the first people to attend an event in this stunning addition to the property, the house also offers a relaxed environment for learning from the sommeliers.

Saturday’s culinary highlight is a hands-on grilling experience led by Chef Dan Witherspoon of The Gourmet Spoon in Denver. Participants get to practice creating their own meal, and will work in stations to create an elaborate buffet.

With all these exciting food and drink activities, don’t forget the fabulous tennis instruction propelling the camp. There are nine hours of classes and drills designed to increase skills.

Between attendees’ passions for food, drink and tennis, it is safe to say that you will be surrounded by like-minded aficionados.

TASTINGS – New Penrose Chef de Cuisine Greg Vassos

Greg Vassos

It is with great pleasure that we announce our new Chef de Cuisine of the Penrose Room – Greg Vassos.   Although Greg is known for his contemporary French and American creations, he has remarkable skill executing delightful farm-to-fork dishes inspired by many cuisines and dictated only by his passion for fresh ingredients.  For it was a clear and simple vision to use only local and ethical ingredients that brought his former restaurant Racine, Pottstown, PA to life and it is this same vision that has underscored his success and will continue here at The Broadmoor.

001

Greg started his culinary aspirations at a young age and pursued the art with incredible dedication. In the span of nearly two decades, Greg worked in many kitchens on four continents alongside some of the world’s most respected chefs including:  Sergi Arola of Arola, Bruno Menard of the Dining Room and Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin. It was his role as Sous Chef under the direction of three-star Michelin Chef Eric Ripert that provided Greg with invaluable experience and a respect for seafood.002

Greg’s success continued as Chef de Cuisine at The Brasserie by Dean Max in the Cayman Islands. Here he was inspired by the art of French cuisine and began to implement various modern and unconventional techniques. It was during his time at The Brasserie that Greg was invited to cook alongside a team of chefs at the James Beard House in New York City.

His second invitation to The Beard House came during his time as Chef of five-diamond restaurant L’Escalier at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida. This time he was invited as Featured Chef.

Vassos gardenHis career blossomed at L’Escalier with his demonstrated skill in haute cuisine, a skill that produced many exciting creations such as pumpkin gnocchi with white truffle foam and his extraordinary Garden Landscape, a whimsical garden with baby turnips, carrots, radishes and ears of corn “growing” from a porcini “soil” base topped with a potato rake and served on a slab of slate.

 

Greg brings an honest simplicity to even the most complex of dishes. He has a deep understanding for the connection that humans have with food and it is this knowledge that inspires him to delight palates with only the best, farm-fresh ingredients he can find.PRChandelier2

 All of this and more is what makes him a 5 Star 5 Diamond addition to the Penrose Room.


The Broadmoor Wilderness Experience

Things are getting exciting around The Broadmoor this month with our reopening of Emerald Valley Ranch and opening of our new property Cloud Camp! In true Colorado fashion, both these properties are set in a landscape of pure mountain wilderness. This is where The Broadmoor Wilderness Experience got its name.

CloudCampWLogo
EMVwLogo
Emerald Valley Ranch is located only 8 miles away from The Broadmoor, surrounded by over 100,000 acres of the Pike National Forest at 8,200 feet of altitude. The Ranch offers refined rustic luxury inspired by the charm of a wilderness enclave. Not only is it set in the stunning Rocky Mountains but it also has many other attributes to offer.

Ranch_Dining_web_HDR4

Activities are a huge part of Emerald Valley Ranch. Many of the intriguing outdoor activities on property include: fly fishing, canoeing and archery. Then there are also many outdoor activities that allow you to journey around the property like, hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

Our new property, Cloud Camp, can definitely be defined as a unique experience. Cloud Camp is scenically located 3,000 feet above The Broadmoor at the top of Cheyenne Mountain. It offers 360 degree views from the main lodge that take your breath away and rustic luxuries within the main lodge and its guest rooms. Because of Cloud Camp’s scenic and steep location we offer three different transportation services: Broadmoor Cadillac, mule ride, or hike. The location is not the only characteristic that makes Cloud Camp a unique destination.

Honeymoon


Because Cloud Camp’s setting is on top of a mountain it is inspired by the rustic stone and timber that can be found in our national park lodges. The main lodge is 8,000 sq. ft. and houses a great room, a bar and large stone fireplaces. There are six guest rooms along with 11 guest cabins around the property. One of the wonderful features of Cloud Camp is the luxurious honeymoon suite. If you are the adventurous type Cloud Camp also offers one of the most unique suites in the world created from a two-story fire tower atop a rock precipice.

Gallery_4

 In the morning you can wake up to Sunrise Coffee that can be enjoyed on the Lodge’s expansive deck. Yoga will also be offered in the morning to prepare for your day if coffee just isn’t enough. If you aren’t a yogi start your day by discovering the natural wonders of Cheyenne Mountain on a Guided Discovery Hike or you may enjoy a Guided Rock Hound Hike. Then for an evening activity join the Chef for the lodge Cooking Club and prepare the evenings Social Hour hors d’ourves.
