hen Spencer Penrose opened The Broadmoor in 1918 as his solution to Prohibition—the eccentric turn-of-the-century philanthropist and reported ladies’ man stocked up on spirits that were smuggled through an intricate series of underground tunnels—he probably didn’t imagine the property would eventually become the crème de la crème of culinary destinations in the state of Colorado. Although the historical property has been serving up libations for 90 years, it wasn’t until 1961 that local landmark restaurant, Penrose Room, made its grand debut. Regally placed at the top of the South Tower, the fine dining establishment boasts stunning vistas of nearby Cheyenne Mountain, the Colorado Springs skyline and off in the distance, the Plains. Catering to a sophisticated palate, Penrose Room consistently tops annual lists of “bests” and “favorites.” Less than two years ago, Penrose Room underwent a major seven-month renovation. Its exquisite 20th-century style and supper club elegance stayed intact, with the resulting dining room more special occasion and swoon-worthy than ever. From adding a 24-seat private dining room, as well as a 16-seat chef ’s demonstration table within eyeshot of the kitchen and an elaborate, multi-course tasting menu, to spending nearly »

$100,000 on silverware and glassware, Penrose Room spared no expense in taking the already opulent space to a new level of luxury. “We had to consider every detail— from the ambiance of the dining room to the silver, china, glassware and linens to the overall feel of luxury throughout the experience,” says Food and Beverage Director, Craig Reed. Refreshed and better than ever, Penrose Room actively took steps towards earning the highly coveted AAA Five-Diamond Award. Reed brought on top-notch veteran Chef Bertrand Bouquin. Bouquin had worked for the likes of Big Apple chef Daniel Boulud, and had most recently been running Maisonnette in Cincinnati, which held AAA’s Five-Diamond rating for a record 41 years until it closed in 2005. Reed whisked Bouquin and his family for an impromptu weekend in Colorado Springs to check out what was going on at The Broadmoor. The rest is clearly a story of success, with the thirty-something chef now serving as Executive Chef of both of Penrose Room and Summit. Back to the award: AAA is North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization. Earning five AAA Diamonds is no easy feat; in 2008, only 100 hotels and 60 restaurants worldwide achieved five-diamond status. Restaurants that are AAA Approved are assigned a rating of one to five AAA Diamonds, ranging from basic to world class. The ratings reflect the richness of food, décor and personal service. AAA’s Diamond Rating System is the only ratings system that covers all of North America and one of only two that conducts physical, on-site evaluations using 65 full-time, professionally trained evaluators to inspect each property. For a restaurant to be considered for evaluation, it must first meet a rigorous checklist of 12 essential requirements. To garner a five-star rating, it must consistently provide a world-class experience. Colorado has exactly one restaurant which boasts the coveted AAA Five-Diamond Award—Penrose

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

Room at The Broadmoor. Although The Broadmoor has maintained its FiveDiamond status for 32 consecutive years (since the rating was first applied to hotels), this is the first year that Penrose Room earned the prestigious nod. Penrose Room General Manager and Mâitre d’ Duane Thompson, a 30-year veteran in this dining room, attributes the restaurant’s success to several factors. Although he deftly trains and leads his staff to provide flawless service, Thompson says, “Consistency is key, but we must constantly seek new ways to ‘wow’ the guest.” Part of the restaurant’s success can be credited to hiring people with a passion for the hospitality industry. “You can’t train someone to have the type of personality necessary to survive in this business,” Reed shares. “It requires someone with an impeccable eye for detail, who can effortlessly deliver an exemplary experience without ever appearing too overbearing, inept or intrusive.” Reed admits that the labor pool can be challenging in a small town like Colorado Springs, but likes to believe that by being part of The Broadmoor, prospects are able to inspire people to be part of something greater. The intensive three-week training process weeds out any not-so-serious candidates and prepares those who stick with it for an experience that will look favorably on anybody’s professional resume. Thompson also makes a point to emphasize the importance of communication between the front and back of the house, meaning everyone working in the kitchen as well as the folks you see on the actual dining room floor. “We strive to uphold certain standards, but there are certain intangibles that ultimately contribute to the total dining experience,” Reed says. Outstanding and innovative food is also essential. Bouquin’s diverse background helped elevate Penrose Room’s level of haute cuisine to even higher standards of culinary excellence.

Having grown up in a small village in southern France, Bouquin developed a passion for food by helping his parents cook as a small child. By the age of 13, he decided he wanted to be a chef. By 16 he landed an apprenticeship near Lyon, learning the ins and outs of classic French cuisine from the likes of legendary chef Alain Ducasse. He moved on to a Michelin three-star venture in Brussels, Belgium, before actualizing his dream to move to the United States in 1997. He landed at Daniel in New York City, before making the jump to top toque at Club XIX at The Lodge at Pebble Beach in California. Here, Bouquin honed the fine art of melding contemporary French fare with California ingredients and flair, which translated into pure magic at Cincinnati’s Maisonette. At Penrose Room, Bouquin sticks to a similar formula for success: to use the highest quality, Colorado-sourced ingredients (whenever possible), coupled with influences from Italy, Spain, Africa and his native France. The menu changes approximately 10 times a year, in accord with the seasons. As far as local ingredients are concerned, Bouquin tries to buy local as much as possible. Lamb is the obvious selection, but he tries to shop at local farmers’ markets whenever possible for seasonal items like corn, tomatoes and potatoes. Bouquin makes every effort to keep the menu fresh, while trying to educate people to try something new. As a result, the Châteaubriand entrée that has been on the menu for decades was recently removed to make way for more imaginative, contemporary preparations. Some of his more popular dishes include: a potato and almond soup with black truffles, poached foie gras with apple cider, and Colorado rack of lamb with dried apricot and walnut crust. Bouquin’s outstanding cuisine is complemented by one of the largest wine cellars in Colorado. Tim Baldwin, Wine Director of Penrose Room has amassed a collection of more than 20,000 bottles for The Broadmoor,

making this property the largest wine purchaser in the state. More than 500 bottle selections are available in Penrose Room, ranging from $60 to more than $5,000. Baldwin recognizes the strong correlation between food and wine and his European heavy list offers diners endless opportunities for memorable food and wine pairings. Memorable celebrations are a key component to Penrose Room’s popularity—it’s not uncommon to see a birthday, anniversary and engagement all celebrated over the course of a meal. “We go the extra mile to acknowledge birthdays and anniversaries,” Thompson says, going so far as to give guests a personally signed card. A big part of creating a one-of-a-kid experience is paying close attention to the guests’ queues. If a couple is fawning over the scenic Colorado Springs views, a cozy table for two by the window may be suggested. For Thompson, it’s really all about reading the guest and doing whatever can be done to make them happy. As a result, dine on a Saturday night, and you’re likely to encounter a predominantly local clientele, many of who make the drive from Denver. Others come to dance cheek-to-cheek to the songs of longtime, local, vocalist Lila Mori. “We have a large regional draw of repeat customers,” Thompson says. Although the experience is undeniably first class from the moment you’re warmly greeted by the hostess to when you’re handed the check, Thompson and his staff try to create a fun, fine dining environment, similar to being entertained in your best friend’s home. The final experience is formal, without being fussy; familiar, yet always inspiring and always delicious–from amuse bouche to apple confit. Clearly the essentials for what is necessary to become a AAA FiveDiamond recipient. To access complete Five-Diamond Award lists, visit www.AAA.com/ Diamonds.

COMMANDMANTS FOR PERFECT GRILLING

The Thrill of the Grill Steve Raichlen comeS to the BRoadmooR By Michael Costa

I

t’s a classroom equation that can only be solved at The Broadmoor: SR = BBQ U. That’s Steven Raichlen = Barbecue University. The grilling school for guests has been around for eight years, but never at The Broadmoor. Now, the resort’s Cheyenne Lodge is the campus, and Raichlen is the professor with an open-pit pedigree. But even with the knowledge of a master, Raichlen says bringing Barbecue University to the high-altitude setting of The Broadmoor poses a few cooking challenges. “I remember the first time I did a high-altitude class, and I did not take into consideration that water boils at a lower temperature (212-degrees at sea level, dropping as the altitude rises.) You need to remember barbecue sauces will boil at a lower temperature,” he says.

Have Tongs—Will Travel Raichlen was born in Japan, raised in Baltimore, lived in Europe for several years, and has traveled to dozens of countries for grilling inspiration. He says the global approach to grilling helps elevate it beyond the reputation of a downscale, backyard activity. “Traditionally, it was a field that was sort-of filled with superstitious guys drinking a lot of beer and confusing the difference between grilling and burning,” Raichlen says. “But grilling is the world’s

20

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

oldest cooking technique, it’s universal, and also intensely regional. That’s what really grabs me,” he adds. Raichlen is transferring his global knowledge to The Broadmoor, adding fresh Colorado fish and game to the recipes, like prosciutto-wrapped trout. Other dishes focus on twisting tradition. “I’ve got one called steak and cheese. It’s a high falootin’ version of a Philadelphia classic, which is a whole butterflied beef tenderloin, stuffed with roasted peppers, onions and cheese, tied up, and grilled whole,” Raichlen says.

Primal Grill, Primal Thrill Aside from the food, theatrics are another attraction to grilling that Raichlen says has worldwide appeal. “Wherever you grill, people gather around to watch. If you’re baking a cake, nobody brings you a beer or huddles around the oven to watch the cake rise,” he says. Raichlen’s passion for grilling has led him to experiment with some unlikely subjects—grilled ice cream, grilled macaroni and cheese, and grilled fruit. He still hasn’t figured out how to grill sushi yet, but he says the freedom to explore his creative side is something that never flames out. “What I have tried to do in my career is give barbecue a college education, and I can’t think of a more splendid campus than The Broadmoor. It’s a spectacular outdoor setting with a big open sky and space for more than 20 grills and smokers.”

1. Have everything you need—the food, marinade, basting sauce, seasonings and equipment―at grill side before you start. 2. Gauge your fuel. When using charcoal, light enough to form a bed of glowing coals 3 inches larger than the surface area of the food you’re cooking. 3. Preheat the grill to at least 650 °F. Use the “3 second” test to gauge the temperature―hold your hand about 6 inches above the grate. After 3 seconds, the heat should force you to snatch your hand away. 4. Keep it clean. Brush the grate with a stiff wire brush after you’ve preheated the grill and again when you’ve finished cooking. 5. Keep it lubricated. Always oil the grate before placing the food on top. 6. Turn, don’t stab. The proper way to turn meats on a grill is with tongs or a spatula. 7. Know when to baste. Marinades can be brushed on the meat throughout the cooking. Apply sweet barbecue sauces at the end, so the sugar won’t burn. 8. Keep the grill covered and resist the temptation to peek. 9. Give it a rest. Almost anything you grill will taste better if you let it stand on the cutting board a few minutes before serving. 10. Never desert your post. Once you put something on the grill, stay with it until it’s cooked. Most of all, have fun. And that’s the gospel! Adapted from The Barbecue Bible, by Steven Raichlen (Workman Publishing)

Farm to Table a fresh food movement By Carrie Le Grice

Local. Seasonal. Organic. To restaurants like Rick Bayless’s Frontera Grill in Chicago, Market in Del Mar, Calif., The Kitchen in Boulder, Colo., and Mario Batali’s Spotted Pig in New York, these words are religion. Founded in a deep belief that local, seasonal and organic ingredients both taste better and are better for the earth, restaurants like these are springing up across the country and offering diners fresh options.

22

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

This farm-to-table movement is based on the premise that to make good food you need good ingredients, and the best ingredients are fresh ones. Take tomatoes. Every summer, although green-thumb inclined I am not, I loyally plant tomatoes. For three months, I wait, watching those crazed plants take over my garden. When August arrives I have enough tomatoes to throw my own private La Tomatina Festival in my backyard. However, for those few weeks out of the year, my family and I eat the freshest gazpacho, bruschetta and papa

al pomodoro that would satisfy even the most refined palates. For the same reason that I grow tomatoes, more restaurants are choosing to buy from locally-sourced purveyors. Simply, it tastes better. “I think every restaurant should serve fresh and seasonal food as much as possible,” says Bertrand Bouquin, agreeing that the result is better tasting and it helps local businesses. As Executive Chef of Summit and Penrose Room at The Broadmoor, Bouquin shops at the seasonal farmer’s market once a


week to get produce for the restaurant, and makes special arrangements to buy the best Colorado brown trout and Colorado-raised lamb. Local, seasonal and organic ingredients are paramount to Chef Mario Batali’s approach to cooking. “What binds these three together is simple. It’s a fundamental term that I’ve used since I started cooking: Perfectly pristine ingredients, combined sensibly and cooked properly, are what make food taste so good. The less fooled around with, the better,” says Batali, Food Network celebrity chef, author, and owner of a culinary empire that includes restaurants in Las Vegas, New York and Los Angeles. The farm-to-table movement is also concerned with environmental sustainability: how produce is grown, how livestock is raised, how soil and communities are affected. As people have become more educated about where their food comes from and what goes into it, farmers and ranchers have made some changes—for the better. As consumers, we have the choice: grassfed cattle, free-range chickens, even antibiotic-free prosciutto (although not from Parma). And of course there’s organic, which means food free of pesticides, antibiotics, hormones and genetic modifications. “It’s as straightforward as cooking should be... the less a product has to travel

Few things in this world can beat produce picked at the peak of the season. Nothing tastes better than local corn, tomatoes and peaches ripe from the summer sun.

—Chef Bertrand Bouquin

and the less it has to be spritzed, sprayed or packed away, the fresher and more meaningful it will taste," Batali says. A fly-by-night trend, this is not. The farm-to-table movement has been influencing how we eat since 1971, when Chez Panisse opened its doors in Berkeley, Calif. Owned by Alice Waters, considered to be the founder of California cuisine, Chez Panisse introduced diners to the concept of eating seasonal and local ingredients. That was no easy task. Americans were still wrapped up in the hype over processed and prepackaged foods that lingered from the 50s TVdinner generation. The same year that Chez Panisse opened for business, Hamburger Helper and Smoke-flavored

Spam were introduced in the market. But with culinary leaders like Waters and Julia Child, who had just published Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. 2, Americans were slowly heading back into the kitchen. Thirty years later, Chez Panisse is even more popular than it was then, and Julia Child is considered a culinary legend. The nation’s culinary consciousness changed. Consumers are demanding local, seasonal and organic ingredients; and restaurants, purveyors and supermarkets are happy to provide them. Batali’s advice? “Develop personal relationships with your local farmer, butcher, cheese shop or fishmonger. You will get the best you can get and [this] puts the cook at a great advantage.”

S BROADMOOR STYLE: MEN’S STYLE

An Ideal Wardrobe Creating a professional wardrobe doesn’t have to be stressful, says tim Corum, the broadmoor’s retail Controller. it’s all about the basiCs. a pro when it Comes to men’s fashion, Corum lends his take on how to Create an ideal wardrobe. By Carrie Le Grice The Suit: Charcoal pin-stripe, solid black and navy suits are the best options for everyday versatility. Choose tropical weight fabrics so that it can be worn year round. For a classic look invest in single-breasted jackets with either twobuttons or three-buttons in the front.

The Trousers: When you feel like you’re comparing apples-toapples, there’s a few things to keep in mind. Look for tropical weight fabrics that can be worn year round for maximum comfort. Also, remember a well-made, pleated trouser should be cuffed at the bottom, and a plain front trouser should have a straight bottom.

The Tie: This is where you make your statement. Choose a pattern that best expresses who you are. But remember, a tie should complement the suit or sport coat, never overpower it.

The Shirt: Solid white or blue are must-haves—lots of them. As for collars, those that spread, rather than button, offer a more updated and seamless look.

The Sport Coat: You can’t go wrong with a basic, navy blazer–it goes with almost everything and can be worn almost everywhere.

East Course Extravaganza E

ThirTeen years removed from iTs lasT major TournamenT, The Broadmoor Golf CluB hosTs The 2008 u.s. senior open. read profiles of Three of The BiGGesT names playinG aT The open.

ight years is a long time to wait for an event, especially one that will come and go in the space of a week. But that is exactly what the folks at The Broadmoor have done in anticipation of hosting the 29th U.S. Senior Open, July 28-Aug. 3, 2008. Ever since Russ Miller, the resort’s director of golf, wrote a letter to the United States Golf Association asking that The Broadmoor’s East Course be considered, the fervor has built. Now, the course is immaculate and up to USGA standards, the sponsors are lined up, the NBC and ESPN television crews have scouted for camera locations, the 3,000 volunteers are booked (at least one from each of the 50 states for the first time ever), tickets are sold, and the players are amping up for one of the majors. The Five-Diamond resort, situated in the shadow of Pikes Peak, has a chance to shine in front of an international television audience and some of the best golfers in the world. This isn’t The Broadmoor’s first date with championship golf, however. The 1995 U.S. Women’s Open was contested here, as was the 1982 U.S. Women’s Amateur and the 1959 U.S. Amateur. With the arrival of one of the biggest events on the Champions Tour comes an influx of 156 of the best players to ever wield a golf club. A sampling of the pros scheduled to appear yields names like Craig Stadler, Peter Jacobsen, Bernard Langer, Tom Kite, Curtis Strange, Fuzzy Zoeller and Ian Woosnam. Three more of the men are profiled on the following pages. Hale Irwin was a standout at the University of Colorado in both golf and football, and he is the honorary chairman of this year’s Open. Tom Watson won eight majors on the PGA Tour and has captured five more on the Champions circuit. Ben Crenshaw finished second at last year’s Senior Open and is hoping to capture his first Champions Tour major this year. >>

Hale Irwin: The Local Legend

I

f Hale Irwin flies his approach way over the final green during the 2008 U.S. Senior Open, and his ball comes to rest on the clubhouse balcony overlooking No. 18 on The Broadmoor’s East Course, he will know what kind of shot he needs to get up and down. Irwin has hit the green from there already. He knocked the ceremonial first shot of the tournament onto the putting surface from the balcony as the kick-off to event ticket sales in May 2007. That unconventional blast—“a oncein-a-lifetime shot,” he calls it—also marked one of Irwin’s duties as the honorary chairman of the 2008 U.S. Senior Open, a position that makes rare appearances on tour. Irwin labels it a surprise and an honor. “It’s not always done,” says Douglas Habgood, championship director at The Broadmoor. “We did it as a way to recognize Hale.” Irwin is being singled out this year because of his long history in the state of Colorado, which includes winning The Broadmoor Invitational when he was in college, a tournament that attracted competitors from across the country. “Winning at The Broadmoor was special,” Irwin says, “because it said I could compete at that level.” The Irwin family moved to Boulder when Hale was 14 years old, and he went on to distinguish himself at Boulder High School, winning a state championship in golf and leading his team to the 1963 state football championship.

He stayed local by earning a scholarship to the University of Colorado, where he played football and golf—doesn’t everyone? Twice selected to the All-Big Eight football team as a defensive back, Irwin earned a place on CU’s All-Century team. On the course, Irwin won the Big Eight individual title two years in a row and claimed top honors at the 1967 NCAA tournament. He joined the PGA Tour in 1968 and went on to win 20 career tournaments, including three U.S. Opens, making Irwin one of just five men to win the title more than two times. Forty years after turning pro, Irwin is still going strong on the Champions Tour. He has won 45 times on the senior circuit—at least one tournament in 12 of 13 years—and has earned almost $25 million, the most in that tour’s history. When he’s not making great shots— like his 2-iron missile to the 18th green at Winged Foot to secure the 1974 U.S. Open—he’s making it possible for others to play. Since 1986, Hale Irwin Golf Design has been creating and renovating courses across the country. Irwin and his son Steve have completed three courses in Colorado—Cordillera in Edwards, Highlands Ranch Golf Club in Highlands Ranch and Indian Peaks in Lafayette—elevating the Centennial State’s golf profile. Though he and Sally, his wife of 40 years, now reside in Arizona, Hale Irwin has a soft spot for Colorado; the state remembers the honorary chairman

The East Course will play more than 7,200 yards at par 70.

And whether or not he’s in position to win the ’08 Senior Open, it’s a safe bet his approach shot to No. 18 on Sunday, Aug. 3 will look more like his 2 iron in ’74 than some fantastic mishit that ends up on the clubhouse balcony.

Tom Watson: Obstacles are No Problem

T

om Watson remembers the shot. No, not the chip-in from the greenside rough on No. 17 at Pebble Beach, the miracle flag-rattler that put him in position to win the 1982 U.S. Open. That was a nice one though, giving him the chance to “win the tournament I wanted to win most.” Watson was a grown man then, a veteran on the PGA Tour, used to the pressure. The shot he remembers happened when he was 8 years old. Vacationing in Colorado, the Watsons decided to take a family golf outing—Tom can’t remember the course. Greens fees paid, family at the ready, the starter took one look at young Tom and asked how old he was. “Eight,” Tom’s father said. “He’s too young to play,” the starter replied. After some haggling, the starter agreed that if Tom could hit the ball over a creek that ran through the No. 1 fairway, he could play. Tom’s father—a solid amateur player who taught his son much about the game—told Tom something along the lines of, “No pressure, but if you don’t hit it over that creek, you can’t play.” Summoning all of the courage his two years of experience would let him muster, Tom took the challenge. “I teed it up, knocked it over that

creek and got to play,” Tom says. Nobody knew it at the time, but that shot 50 years ago was a preview of things to come for Watson—a sneak peek at how he would handle Sunday at Augusta or Turnberry or Pebble Beach. He exhibited the combination of innocent Midwestern face and steely nerves that earned him the nickname Huckleberry Dillinger years later. For a nine-season stretch from 1975 through 1983, Watson was the dominant player on tour. He was named PGA Tour Player of the Year six times, topped the money list five times and won eight of the 36 majors contested, including five of eight British Opens. He made such an impact over in the British Isles that the venerated Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews made him an honorary member, placing him in an elite club of American members with Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, President George H.W. Bush and Gene Sarazen. “I like the flavor of golf over there,” Watson says. “The challenge is different from American golf; American golf courses are softer. Over there, you have to play close to the ground. You have to have some imagination.” That penchant for imagination on the course will come into play at the Senior Open, where Watson finished fourth last

year, for a couple of different reasons. One, Watson and most of the players in the field have never played at The Broadmoor before. Two, the USGA will have the track playing as difficult as it can—slick greens, punitive rough, narrow fairways— especially since it is a major. Watson says he’ll likely play one more practice round than normal in preparation, to get to know the course a little better, something he does for any major contested on a course he doesn’t know. As he plays less competitive golf these days, Watson takes more time to enjoy his off-course labor of love: his farm in Bucyrus, Kan., south of Kansas City, where he takes care of the horses and cattle, and handles the chores around the farm. Being the Midwest, there’s sure to be a creek running through the farm, daring an older and wiser golfer, “C’mon, bet you can’t knock it over.” >>

Ben Crenshaw: Still at Home in the Lone Star State

S

hown the game by his father, a scratch golfer, a Texas boy catches on early and makes a name for himself in his home-state golf circles. He shoots 74 at age 10. He cards a 69 at age 13 to qualify for the state junior tournament and wins said tourney at 15 and 16. He claims more than 20 college golf tournament titles and captures three NCAA individual golf titles for the University of Texas, sharing one with teammate Tom Kite. The Texan then solidifies his young reputation by winning his first career professional tournament, the 1973 Texas Open in San Antonio. He’s not even 22 years old. Ben Crenshaw was making a name for himself in the early 1970s, embarking on a career that would be the envy of most golfers. Book-ended by the Texas Open win and his second Masters victory in 1995, Crenshaw’s career trophy case includes 19 PGA Tour victories; he finished in the top 10 144 times. The ’95 Masters win was particularly special for Crenshaw because his longtime friend and mentor Harvey Penick passed away earlier that week. A noted golf historian, the ultimate Longhorn probably knows his second

Other USGA tournament champions to be crowned at The Broadmoor include Jack Nicklaus (1959 U.S. Amateur), Juli Inkster (1982 U.S. Women’s Amateur) and Annika Sorenstam (1995 U.S. Women’s Open).

victory at Augusta put him into an elite group of just 16 men to win the Masters more than once; only seven men have claimed more than two green jackets. His affinity for the game’s history—he owns 800 books about golf—won’t help him physically play this year’s U.S. Senior Open, but it will help him slightly with his pretournament mental preparation. “In this case, I don’t know the course at The Broadmoor at all,” says Crenshaw, who finished second at the 2007 Senior Open. “I know, as a rule, any Donald Ross golf course is going to take a lot of thought and preparation. For a U.S. Open, you anticipate the USGA is going to set up the course to put a premium on tee shots. All of us are going to have to spend time learning the greens, which we’ve heard are puzzling.” Just because he’s never played The Broadmoor doesn’t mean he is without connection to Colorado golf. Crenshaw and his business partner, Bill Coore, have been designing golf courses since 1985, and the duo opened Colorado Golf Club, situated near Parker (less than an hour north of Colorado Springs), in 2007. The members-only course drew immediate

raves, earning high marks on two noted Best New Private Course lists: the top spot at Golf Magazine and No. 6 at Golf Digest. We’re very proud of the course we built there,” Crenshaw says, “and we love hearing from the members about their experiences. We had a great time building the course and have enjoyed watching it mature.” The Colorado Golf Club is one of 17 new courses the team of Crenshaw and Coore has designed, along with numerous restorations. Construction at Spring Valley in Aspen, Colo., started in spring of 2008. Crafting new courses from landscapes lush and barren, and bringing old ones into the 21st century, is something Crenshaw plans to continue doing long after his playing days wind down When the Golf Hall-of-Famer isn’t conquering courses or designing them, he spends time with his wife, Julie, and their three daughters, ages 10, 15 and 20. Still in Austin after 56 years, Crenshaw also spends “as much time as I can at Austin Golf Club,” which, of course, he and Coore designed.

Annika the Great By Jon Rizzi

F

our score victories and 13 years ago, Annika Sörenstam brought forth in Colorado a new era dedicated to the proposition that all women golfers are not created equal. It happened on July 16, 1995 at The Broadmoor, when she entered the final round of the 50th U.S. Women’s Open trailing Meg Mallon by five strokes―and ended it leading Mallon by one and holding the trophy. Not only was it her first major win, it was her first U.S. victory as a professional. She was 24 then, a shy, Swedish sensation two years removed from starring at the University of Arizona, where she won the NCAA national championship as a freshman, and one year removed from winning the LPGA’s Rolex Rookie of the Year award (ranking 39th in earnings). She successfully defended her U.S. Women’s Open title in 1996. Although she wouldn’t win it again until 2006—when she crushed Pat Hurst in an 18-hole playoff—the intervening decade brought with it the kind of record-breaking, dominance that granted her one-name recognition historically reserved for male icons named Tiger, Jack and Arnie.

Annika A quick highlight reel: Seven more wins in majors, including a career Grand Slam, giving her a total of 10; an LPGA tournament record round of 59 at Phoenix’s Moon Valley Country Club in 2001; a 10-stroke comeback on the final day to win the 2001 Office Depot Hosted by Amy Alcott—her fourth consecutive tournament in as many weeks; two seasons (2002 and 2005) of double-digit victory totals; the lowest single-season scoring average in LPGA

history (68.69 in 2004); a controversial appearance—and missed cut—in the PGA Tour’s 2003 Bank of America Colonial; induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame at the age of 33. Annika’s $21 million in career earnings (as of April 2008) is tops among LPGA players by $8 million. Annika engages fans with the same intoxicating combination of personality, power, passion and skill that animates her friend, Tiger Woods. Like Tiger, she transcends the game, parlaying her popularity and success into myriad business and charity endeavors. The Annika Academy at Florida’s Ginn Reunion Resort opened in April 2007, with her personal golf and fitness coaches on staff and a number of “Soren-Slam Packages” that include a round of golf with her. She has designed four courses—one each in South Africa, British Columbia, China and South Carolina—and more are on the way. With her fiancé, Mike McGee, directing the ANNIKA brand of businesses—including Cutter & Buck’s brisk-selling ANNIKA apparel line—she can focus on golf and on giving back to the game. She has set up golf scholarships for budding Swedish players who aspire to play U.S. college golf, and in 2007 created The ANNIKA Cup, an annual match play between two teams comprised of twelve of the top amateur girls in Sweden. On this side of the Atlantic, she serves as national ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation—a position she considers much more than ceremonial. A world-class golfer, humanitarian and entrepreneur, Annika has come a long way from being the girl who looked almost embarrassed to win at The Broadmoor. “Share my passion,” she exhorts visitors to her Website. We’ve done so for 13 years. Why stop now?

The East Becomes a Beast By Jon Rizzi

H

ow do you show an audience of 150,000 an above-par time? Make sure the golfers they’re watching go below par for the course. Such is the paradox at The Broadmoor, which will host the 2008 U.S. Senior Open on its East Course July 28-Aug. 3. With golf fans, media and volunteers from all over the world descending on the Colorado Springs resort, the golf and event staffs have taken into account every imaginable accommodation—from bleachers

positioned around the course to rubberlined, noiseless doors on portable toilets. But when the last putt drops, only one player in the field of 156 will hoist the Francis D. Ouimet Memorial trophy— his reward (along with the $2.6 million purse) for taming the longest course in the tournament’s 29-year history. The extra yardage, however, merely compensates for The Broadmoor’s 6,400foot elevation; it’s what comprises those yards that will stupefy competitors and electrify the gallery. Working closely with officials from the United States Golf Association’s

Competition and Championship Committees, Director of Golf Russ Miller and Director of Golf Course Maintenance Fred Dickman spent five years bringing the 90-year-old East Course up to the USGA’s rigorous specifications. They narrowed the width of the landing area on the second hole to 22 yards and tightened the fairway width on the course’s finishing hole by more than 40 percent—from 41 feet to 24 feet. Both the 478-yard 11th and 510yard 17th will play as par fours instead of par fives. Along the fairways, the first cut of rough will stand at four inches, with

the second rough at a ball-gobbling six inches. The course, which will be hosting its sixth USGA Championship, will play much differently than it did during the last one contested here—the 1995 U.S. Women’s Open, won by Annika Sorenstam. The course will feature 36 more bunkers, many in the angular, hand-cut style that closely resembles Ross’ creation thanks to the efforts of Dickman, who researched the original Donald Ross drawings and examined numerous aerial photographs taken over the years; and Ron Forse, a Pittsburgh-

based golf course architect who has restored 39 other Ross layouts. “By relying on the shadows in aerial shots, we’ve been able to recreate the depth and shapes of Ross’ bunkers,” Forse says. “Ross was in his ‘primitive’ era when he built this course, where he built almost, crazy-shaped bunkers that we’d consider irregular.” As many know, however, the current East Course is actually a hybrid of the Ross-designed East and Robert Trent Jones-designed West. Both feature the subtly-breaking, crowned greens that have proudly defended par at The

Broadmoor for nigh on a century. “They’re going to roll fast,” Dickman says, “but remember, they were designed when you couldn’t mow as closely as you do now. If we wanted, we could make them like glass. But we won’t. They’re already tough enough to read.” Clearly pleased, the USGA fully endorsed the course modifications and rewarded The Broadmoor with the 2011 U.S. Women’s Open. Miller and Dickman plan even further changes to the course. “We’ll probably take a week off,” Miller jokes, “and then start prepping for the women.” 90th Anniversary | The Broadmoor Magazine

tress. It’s a reality everyone deals with. As individuals, we find ways to manage it: We exercise, take up hobbies, meditate, go to spas, get therapy, and sometimes we do nothing at all and ignore it. Spa-goers are one step ahead of the game. It’s said that people who visit a spa or a massage therapist regularly have lower stress levels than those who don’t. Still, spa-enthusiast or not, we struggle to shut off, to let go or to escape, even if only for a few minutes. The truth is, managing stress is about having the right tools and understanding what your body needs to decompress. New revolutions in spa technology are actually paving the way to help people control their stress in ways never before seen.»

Healing Rhythms The words spa and laptop don’t really mesh. The point of going to a spa is to get away from your computer, not be on it—right? Not anymore. With technology innovations spanning every industry, it’s a natural progression. Technology has arrived at the spa ... The Spa at The Broadmoor, that is. Healing Rhythms, a computer software application, is designed to help you learn that your body has the natural ability to counter the effects of everyday stress. It does this through biofeedback. Here’s how it works. Three probes, which are hooked up to the computer, are placed on your fingertips. They measure heart rate variability and skin conductance levels. As you breathe, a butterfly’s wings move with the pattern of your breath. This technique teaches you how to breathe in a fivecount rhythm—a technique you will use throughout the session. From there, 30 breathing and meditation exercises await, all of which use visual effects like the butterfly to teach you to completely relax and let go. In essence, these exercises are games that make you want do better and “win.” For example, one of the breathing exercises shows the graphics of a tree; the branches expand and contract with your breathing. As you breathe deeper and slower and relax more, a staircase slowly builds before your eyes, eventually leading to the sky. In one of the meditation exercises,

rocks float across the screen. The goal is to not only control your breathing, but to rid your mind of anything but calming thoughts. As you do this, one rock piles on top of the other, until all the rocks are piled in one stack. If you try to win-over the rock and control it, or if you are distracted with other thoughts, your rock moves up and down the screen, following the pattern of your thoughts. Before I tried it myself, the skeptic in me didn’t believe it could have that sort of accuracy. So, I confess, I played around with it. Let me put it this way, it took me a long time to build my rock pile. It’s true, my rocks burst into pieces and flew off the screen. Finally, I got serious, and the competitor in me just wanted to win. I relaxed, I breathed deeply—I was even visualizing my butterfly. Then, I let go. Who knew a pile of rocks could feel so rewarding? Of course, the true reward and the point to all of this is that I was truly relaxed. That is exactly how the creators of Healing Rhythms want people to feel. Deepak Chopra, M.D., an Indian medical doctor who is known around the U.S. for his influence on the New Thought Movement; Dean Ornish, M.D., a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, who is widely known and respected for his lifestyle-driven approach to control coronary artery disease; and Andrew Weil, a physician

One of the most important tools you can incorporate into your life is a deeper, slower breathing practice.

– Dr. Andrew Weil

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009


and best-selling author who serves as Program Director for the University of Arizona’s integrative medicine program, created Healing Rhythms in response to the high-stress levels the average person endures. “One of the most important tools, you can incorporate into your life, to affect not only the longevity of your life, but the quality of your life, is a deeper, slower breathing practice. The exercises in Healing Rhythms do just that,” Weil says. After a 50-minute session with Healing Rhythms, I was ready for my massage, armed with the tools to clear my mind—something I have always had a hard time doing—and simply enjoy my afternoon of pampering. See the sidebar “Journey to Nirvana,” for more information.

Resonant Touch From computer software to iPod technology. Ella Stimpson, the director of The Spa at The Broadmoor, was at a trade conference when she discovered SO Sound Technology. The Boulder, Colo.based company, So Sound Solutions, was displaying a relaxation chair and headphone/iPod set that delivers harmonic resonance throughout the body.

52

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

Simply titled Sound Chair, Stimpson liked it immediately. Then she started thinking: What if she could take this sound technology, re-work the finer details, and incorporate it into the treatment tables? Imagine the combination of the touch of a therapist with sound resonances that are specifically designed to reach the relaxation centers of the brain. She knew then that this concept could completely revolutionize spas around the world. Stimpson’s idea, combined with the ingenuity of SO Sound creators Suzanna Long and Barry Oser, soon made this concept a reality. So what exactly is So Sound technology like? Stimpson describes it best. “It’s not like being in the audience at the orchestra. It’s not even like being in the orchestra. Rather, it’s like being inside the cello,” she says. “You can actually feel the sound move through you, from your head to your toes, resonating through your body.” So Sound Technology has been used to help people clear their often overactive minds and decompress from everyday stress. It is also used as a pain reduction method, a therapy for autism and chronic fatigue. Along with the Sound Chair, all of the treatment tables have So Sound resonance built into them, allowing guests the option of including this feature for an enhanced, and almost transcendent, experience. Stimpson, a true believer in the effects of music, refers to it as “resonant touch,” and The Spa at The Broadmoor is the only spa in the world that has it. “We truly believe this is going to help our guests reach a state of relaxation—and maybe even reflection and healing—that would be very hard to reach with just touch therapy alone,” she says. “To say I’m excited about this doesn’t even begin to cover it. I think we are fundamentally going to change the concept of spa.”

Magic of the

Silk Route

An exotic treAtment infused with silk And spices Hear the sound of rain. Smell the essence of cinnamon. Feel the intimacy of silk. Magic of the Silk Route at The Spa at The Broadmoor elevates the words pamper and indulgence to new heights. What makes this treatment so unique—and almost life changing—is the combination of massage therapy, aromatherapy and water therapy. The spice-infused scrubs of ginger, cumin and cinnamon that are used for full-body exfoliation overflow with aromatic pleasures, so much, you can almost taste it. A deep and purifying scalp massage rids the mind and body of any remaining tension. Then, cocooned in warm towels, the four Vichy showerheads pour warm water over your body. The heat slowly penetrates through the towels and you completely let go to the serenity of a waterfall. The warmth from the water’s steam envelopes the room, and a fullbody massage completes the treatment. Nirvana is reached.

t’s the geographical equivalent of automakers’ 0 to 60 stats. The Broadmoor can get you from luxurious civilization to take-your-breathaway wilderness in under 10 minutes, and give you the best of Colorado on both sides of the experience. North Cheyenne Cañon Park, 1,626 acres of sky-scraping evergreens, dramatic rock formations, wildflowers and tumbling waterfalls, is just a short drive away but a world apart from The Broadmoor’s meticulously manicured grounds. It’s here that guests hike Columbine Trail in the company of the hotel’s experienced guides who know how to work a little wilderness magic; that is, they tailor the hike to the abilities within each group while ensuring that one component stays constant: Every hiker, experienced or not, gets the gift of spectacular scenery and panoramas of the Colorado high country that has stirred souls and inspired poets for centuries. Columbine is a chameleon of a trail in some ways, gentle and easy enough for novices who want stunning scenery

without a major workout, but ready to challenge experienced hikers on its mid and upper portions. The trail bends around massive boulders and skirts stands of ponderosa pines before crossing the tree line. There it gives way to sweeping views that include the elegant towers of The Broadmoor in the distance, a visual record of how far you’ve come yet how close you remain to legendary comforts. If two-wheeling is your style, sign out a bike (helmets provided), and join members of the fitness staff on a different kind of adventure—cycling through the Stratton Open Space in the park. This is mountain biking territory for sure, but you don’t have to be an expert. If you have basic knowledge of biking, guides can help you build your skills and challenge yourself to whatever degree you choose. The route starts on a flat road, turns into a wide, dirt path through the hills, and finally morphs into an exhilarating single track. If it’s steeps you’re after, go all the way, and the descent will get your adrenaline going; though there’s nothing to say that a peaceful ride through rolling countryside isn’t just as rewarding. Like everything at

The Broadmoor, the question for cyclists is simple: What’s your pleasure? Both hiking and biking are available as group activities scheduled two to three times weekly or as private outings anytime. The minimum age for group hikes is 16, and parents must accompany their teens up to 18. For private classes, all ages are welcome with parents. Remember that even in town you’re at 6,000 feet above sea level, so whether you’re an experienced adventurer or ready to learn, take time to adjust to the altitude. The truth is, indulging in utter relaxation for a day or so is a good thing, and there’s no better place to do that than The Broadmoor. Even with rest you may not instantly be at your normal fitness level. For a boost, check out the spa’s O2 machine. When you’re ready to hit the trails, take plenty of water, wear appropriate shoes, and dress in layers for unpredictable weather. The old adage, “if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes,” is reality in the Rockies, where a day can go from sunny to stormy and back in a flash—the weather equivalent of 0 to 60. To arrange your outdoor adventure, call 719-577-5770.

What Men Want By Mike Werling

T

he spa isn’t just for women anymore. Never really was. The Spa at The Broadmoor reaches out to men and makes a convert out of at least one guy: me. “I’m slathered in mud and my mother isn’t yelling at me.” That’s the thought making me grin as I lay on the massage table in one of the wet rooms at The Spa at The Broadmoor. Actually, I’m covered in a spiceinfused, body wrap and nestled inside a cocoon of hot towels, hovering just this side of consciousness—an aromatic combination of oils and spices wooing my nose, and harmonious soft music and nature sounds serenading my ears. It’s all part of the exotic, 90-minute Magic of the Silk Route. A full-body exfoliation preceded the silk wrap, and a deeply relaxing body and scalp massage await. This is my first trip to the spa and I’m

hesitant. What’s the protocol? What if I mess up? Where are all the other men? I’m not alone in wondering these things, especially among men, according to Julie Oliff, but she says we need to get over it. “The spa is a woman’s realm in men’s minds,” says Oliff, spa sales manager, “but it is as much a man’s place as a woman’s.” To further that point, The Spa has introduced a Gentleman’s Collection, which encompasses everything from deep massages to facials to XY-chromosomespecific manicures and pedicures. The massage exorcises any remaining tension from my travel-

weary body, and it follows one of Oliff ’s spa tenets: Men should put trepidation aside and request male therapists. Oliff insists that most men who try it are converts. Now I’m off to the relaxation room— water, fruit, newspaper, views of Pike’s Peak—before the Sonya Dakar Ultraluxe Facial. A facial? Not sure what to think, but a few minutes after oozing into the chair, my mind is at ease. Every application, from the exfoliation to the peel to the mask, is massaged onto the face, neck and shoulders. Plus, my feet and hands are gently kneaded and placed in warm booties and mittens. I’m not sure the therapist can overcome DNA and a lifetime of skin indifference—Sun block? Huh?—but 70 minutes later I can only hope I look as good as I feel. Did I just write that? Any man who feels a little testosterone deprived after a couple hours in The Spa—don’t—can get back what he thinks he lost with a visit downstairs to see Paul Massullo, the fitness supervisor. Schedule a one-onone personal training session, whether it’s weights, Pilates, Yoga or spinning, and feel the burn. The next day, I am sore in places where dormancy had for too long been the rule; I am renewed and destroyed at the same time. Lesson I: Schedule the fitness center session first, then go for a spa treatment or two. As sore as my muscles are, though, my skin is soft, smooth and clean, much to the envy of my wife. Lesson II: Relax. The Spa at The Broadmoor’s guiding principle is, “If you’ve been here you know.” Well, I have and I do.

Sure, the Internet was around, but the academic world hadn’t yet accepted it as a legitimate source of information—that was in 1997. More than a decade later, and I like many struggle to keep up with the constant advancements on the Internet. I can order a tall, no-foam, triple-soy latte no problem. But when it comes to online jargon, I admit I fall short with “profile pimping” on MySpace and checking out Fakesters on Friendster. My back-tonature side wants to think that I don’t need to know about this stuff—socialnetworking sites are for teenagers, right? Not true. The fastest growing demographic on Facebook is people 25 and older, deemed a great networking tool particularly by those in the media and information industries. The fact remains, since social networking sites were introduced on the Web, they have grown exponentially. When Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. bought MySpace for $580 million in 2005, the critics laughed, thinking MySpace was purely a trend for teens. In 2007, however, Murdoch’s foresight helped earn revenues topping $1 billion. It doesn’t take a business owner to know that numbers like these don’t happen on a whim. Social networking, in its more primitive form, started out as online bulletin boards. Soon, sites like classmates.com (1995), where users can reconnect with their old friends from school, and friendster. com, where users can meet, greet and network, started popping up all over the Web. The popularity of blogging (psuedo online diaries) seemed to spring up over night, and podcasts (digital media files) soon followed. No doubt, college kids and teenagers seemed to start the craze—and

Since social networking sites were introduced on the Web, they have grown exponentially

continue to be a major influence on social networking sites, but businesses were quick to realize the potential for marketing, advertising, networking and communicating. Just look at LinkedIn.com, a site for business people to find and be found. With over 11 million professionals from around the globe in nearly 150 industries, Business 2.0 magazine hailed it as “MySpace for grownups,” and others say it could replace the business card. That might be taking it too far; nevertheless the point remains: Businesses need to incorporate social networking into their communication strategies. If you need proof, jump onto Google and search. There is a social networking site for just about everyone. There’s even Dogster.com for dog lovers and Ravelry.com for people who love to knit and crochet. Big business has jumped on the bandwagon. Samsung, Quicksilver, Heinz and Johnson & Johnson are just a few that are cashing in on the video

posting phenomenon. Dell Outlet and the Portland Trailblazers are all about Twitter.com, a site for posting short text messages from cell phones and on the web. A simple concept it might be, but there is now Twittersearch, TwitterMap and TwitterVision. Dell uses Twitter to bring up-to-the-minute discount offers on computer equipment. Are you starting to think about the potential? You should be. Even here at The Broadmoor, more and more guests are discovering our resort sites like TripAdvisor.com where users can post and read comments about hotels, restaurants and overall vacation experiences. "Social networking sites have the capacity to change how we exchange information," says John Washko, vice president of sales at The Broadmoor, who has helped broaden the resort's e-communications by introducing e-brochures, online shopping and revamping the entire Web site. The social-networking market has grown so rapidly, however, it still has its fair share of obstacles to overcome and kinks to work out. For example, traditional forms of advertising tend to be unsuccessful on these sites. Advertisers are finding savvy ways to reach this targeted audience, yet they are still wary as to which sites are going to stick around for the long run. There will come a point when the market will be oversaturated with social networking options. Even the most avid of users won’t have the time and energy to join more sites and become “friends” with more people. Like any new market, some sites won’t make it. But don’t be fooled—social networking is here to stay. Take a look at your business, and figure out how you can make the most out of the social networking phenomenon. 90th Anniversary | The Broadmoor Magazine

Bringing the World to Colorado By Ivy Canady

T

he founders of The Broadmoor, Julie and Spencer Penrose, traveled around the world and brought back inspiration from places like Palestine, Egypt, the Orient and New Zealand. Now, 90 years later, The Broadmoor continues to reach outward by bringing the world back to Colorado. The staff at The Broadmoor represents an astonishing 30 countries and 35 languages. With 1,900 employees―and 250 of them international students―you might start to ask yourself a few questions about the logistics. How does The Broadmoor recruit the students and, more importantly, where do they find them? The students come to the United States on J-1 visas and stay in the country for four to 12 months. They receive hands-on training in all areas of hospitality, from learning about wines and cuisine to scheduling and service.

70

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

Dana Barton, The Broadmoor’s director of recruitment, is the driving force behind the international recruiting process. “We have a unique cross-section of employees from around the world, which ties into the vision of the world-class resort the Penrose’s had so many years ago,” Barton explains. In the past 12 months alone, Barton has visited Poland, Peru, Argentina, England, Scotland, Croatia, Holland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Russia and Bulgaria. She says the most important preparation for a recruitment trip is to research the country’s customs beforehand, which has a strong impact on the way she interacts during the interview process. One of Barton’s most memorable moments was when she interviewed in Bulgaria and had, shall we say, a minor, “communication” issue. “One of the first things I noticed was that when the students answered

‘yes’ to a question, instead of nodding their heads the way we do in the United States to clarify understanding, they shook their head as if to mean ‘no’. It was confusing at first because I thought they didn’t understand my questions, but I quickly realized that it was a cultural difference.” During the interviews, Barton says it is essential to ask questions that lead her to better understand their customer service experience, while assessing their English proficiency at the same time. Once Barton and her team extend an offer to a student, the student makes not only a verbal commitment but a financial one, too. Students pay between $1,400 and $2,000 to obtain their visa, which doesn’t include the costly airfare. “It is an investment for the students to come to the United States,” Barton says, “We understand the commitment they’ve given to us and we, in turn, make it back to them.”

Teamwork By Carrie Le Grice

T

eamwork: a word dreaded by students and professionals alike. As professionals, the tasks we undertake that involve group communication and collaboration are often the hardest part of a job. Although teamwork may be a challenge for many, it doesn’t have to be this way. Enter, the Action Learning Center. Owned and managed by Action Learning Associates, an international consulting group that fosters executive development, the Action Learning Center at The Broadmoor is all about making teamwork happen. The center itself, situated on the hillside of The Broadmoor’s grounds, is really more of an

72

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

outdoor adventure sanctuary. It consists of four types of courses that are intended to help teams work together through accomplishing a physical challenge. The Center’s philosophy is based on their clear belief that humans are more intelligent collectively than individually. “Teamwork cannot be taught, but it can be learned,” says Dr. Richard Kimball, Ph.D., senior partner and founder. Dr. Kimball, affectionately known as Rocky by colleagues and friends, says that in every group there is always one tentative person that doesn’t want to participate. “It looks more physically challenging than it really is,” he says. But once the person sees the team working together, having fun and accomplishing the task, he says that almost 100 percent

of the time that person gives it a shot and loves it. Dr. Kimball started Action Learning Associates in response to the expansion and globalization of businesses. “Organizations were getting flatter and the need for cross-functional, crossgeographical teamwork was increasing,” he explains. His mission became to create indoor and outdoor experiences that accelerate the skills, mindsets and capabilities this new imperative required. The transformation that occurs between colleagues after just one day at the Action Learning Center is truly remarkable and should be an inspiration for others to come and see what it’s all about.

The Cottages New guest accommodatioNs at the Broadmoor By Allison Scott | Artist rendering o�� the �ol�� Cottages’ parlors

B

efore The Broadmoor was even a dream for Spencer Penrose, this former dairy farmland located on the outskirts of Colorado Springs was purchased by Count James Pourtales. Born of German aristocracy, Count Pourtales dreamed of taking this pristine area and creating a community he called “Broadmoor City.” The original plan included a gambling casino with its own lake, tree-lined streets with classic brownstones and avenues that included only the finest upscale residences that the Count hoped would attract the young entrepreneurs of the late 1800s who were looking for a more elegant and refined European-style alternative to the

then “dry” city of Colorado Springs. One of the original designs Pourtales created called for a system of houses he named “Cottages at Broadmoor.” These elegant villas were advertised as a place where people could “investigate the many unquestioned advantages for health, removed from smoke, dust and bustle of the most prosperous city in the West—Colorado Springs.” Now, more than 100 years after Pourtales inked his original plan, The Broadmoor breaks ground on their newest version of this groundbreaking vision. Situated on the 18th fairway of the East Course, with sweeping vistas of Cheyenne Mountain, and a casual, distinctly American cottage style, The Broadmoor Cottages suggest a place to gather family, friends and associates for

a unique and unparalleled experience. Wood floors with handcrafted area rugs complement natural, stone fireplaces in parlors with high-beamed ceilings, wood accented chandeliers and French doors that open to expansive verandas adorned with oversized wicker chairs and rockers. Large, flat screen TVs and desk systems with printers and fax machines blend seamlessly into this casual and spacious design. From single room suites to an eight bedroom cottage, there is nothing typical about this enclave. It is a place where form and function meet rest and relaxation. It is a retreat where time can stand still; it is a place where one can redefine business, family and friendship in ultimate comfort. The Cottages at The Broadmoor open in May 2009.

hen Elliot Pulham was a child growing up in Hawaii, he sat in awe on the sidelines of parades that were celebrating successful missions in space. “I was one of those kids who was caught up in the excitement of the Apollo Program,” says Pulham, referring to the moon exploration initiative started by President Kennedy in the early 1960s. Imagining the adventures those

74

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

astronauts experienced, and then parading in convertibles with President Lyndon B. Johnson, Pulham recalls, “I just thought there couldn’t be anything more exciting than that.” Today, as President and CEO of the Colorado Springs-based, non-profit Space Foundation, Elliot Pulham is now a leader in the field he so admired as a child, and is on a first-name basis with history-making astronauts like Buzz Aldrin and world-renowned

astrophysicists like Dr. Neil DeGrass Tyson. The elation with which Pulham describes his work makes it seem like it is genuinely a dream come true: “I can’t think of anything more fun to do than work in the space business,” he says. Along with the fun come challenges, however. “For 50 years, people have thought that the U.S. is always going to be the leader in the space industry, and that’s at risk because people take it for granted,”


Pulham explains. “I think it’s always a challenge to help people realize how important space is to everything that goes on in our life… We take for granted all the technology that we have at our fingertips and we don’t stop to think where it came from.” In an effort to educate, the foundation runs several programs for teachers and hosts professional conferences. Out of its Washington office, the foundation generates authoritative, worldwide, economic data on the latest issues and developments in the space industry, and works to raise awareness and understanding about space issues among policymakers and representatives in government. All of this work, Pulham says, is ultimately to “prepare humanity for the time when we will be working and living in space,” a realistic prospect given the increasing commercialization of outer space. Now celebrating its 25 th anniversary, the work of the Space Foundation resonates around the globe. Back home, the organization has played an important role in placing Colorado at the forefront of the space industry. The Rocky

Mountain state, in fact, has the second highest concentration of aerospace workers in the country (California has the highest). The National Space Symposium hosted by the Space Foundation, now in its 25 th year at The Broadmoor, is one of the greatest annual gatherings of space industry leaders and draws thousands from all over the world. During its four-day period, Pulham says, the conference has a $25 million impact on the city of Colorado Springs. Despite this international significance, Pulham won’t be satisfied until he feels that residents of Colorado and beyond recognize the foundation, now a “hidden treasure,” as more of a “crown jewel.” His goal: to promote awareness of space, connecting us on earth to what’s out there in the universe. Since he became the head of the Space Foundation in 2001, Pulham, 53, has made classroom education a priority. “There is no question that the most rewarding part of my job is working with kids—being able to stand in a classroom and see their eyes light up when you talk about this and see their natural curiosity and sense of

wonder and exploration.” The foundation has worked with more than 25,000 teachers and innumerable students. But its reach goes beyond the K-12 classroom by collaborating with the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Regis University to offer master’s degrees in space studies. With all of these achievements, and the development robust, online learning laboratories, a national space-based curriculum databank and other distance learning technologies, Pulham and the Space Foundation are working toward Colorado Springs becoming a worldwide center for spacebased education. With the 24th National Space Symposium at The Broadmoor this past spring, Pulham reflects on the Space Foundation’s long-term relationship with the resort. The conference has grown dramatically under Pulham’s leadership: Ten years ago, there were about 1,500 participants. Today, almost 8,000 members of the space community attend. “We’ve really helped each other to grow,” he says. It’s now the largest event that’s held in Colorado Springs each year. “It’s been a beautiful partnership over the last 25 years,” Pulham says.

Wine: The Best of Both Worlds By Michael Costa

A

re you old world or new world? Put that question in front of a wine bottle, and you’ll get an instant answer. “Old world is Europe, and new world is everywhere else,” says Timothy Baldwin, Broadmoor director of wine and Summit general manager. As simple as that sounds, there are layers of history, politics and human migration across continents associated with winemaking that lead to very different flavors in our glasses today. Baldwin says Spain and Greece were the first European countries to make wine, with the Greeks taking vines to Italy, and the Romans spreading them throughout the continent. The Spaniards brought them to the new world in the 1500s, starting with South America and Mexico, and in

76

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

the 1700’s, the first vines took hold in California. Because the old world had a centuries-long head start on the craft and culture of winemaking, Baldwin says the product is more refined than the new world version. “Old world wines tend to have more minerality, complexity, higher acid and lower alcohol, while new world wines tend to have higher alcohol, up-front fruit flavor, little or no earth elements and lower acid,” he says. It’s true, much of the wine world grows the same grapes, but that’s where the similarities end. Like a set of twins separated at birth, grapes can look the same, but have very different personalities, due in large part to where and how they were raised.

Global Grapes Consider Chardonnay. It grows in California, France, Australia, New

Zealand, Italy, Argentina and Chile, among others. Once it’s bottled, every Chardonnay has a unique flavor profile shaped by climate, soil and surrounding elements in the vineyard. In wine terms, it’s known as terroir. Summit Head Sommelier Michael Buckelew says it can be expressed by any grape and heightened or minimized by winemaking techniques. “French Pinot Noir from Burgundy, for example, is earthy tasting, with very underripe fruit; while Pinot Noir from California is overripe, sometimes oaky, and has a darker color. Once you identify those basic elements, you understand what separates the old world from the new world,” he says. Other popular grapes that straddle both worlds are: • Sauvignon Blanc, which grows in both South Africa (new world) and France (old world)


Old World Wine Countries

• Cabernet Sauvignon, which grows in both Argentina (new world) and Italy (old world) • Merlot, which grows in both the United States (new world) and Croatia (old world) Other grapes, like Shiraz and Syrah, are actually the same grape with different spellings based on the country of origin—Shiraz can be Australian, Syrah can be French. What all of this means to a wine drinker at The Broadmoor is a near endless map of flavors to explore and pair with food.

Food First “If you start with the premise that you want to match wine to food, then a lot of times it goes old world, because it’s not as overpowering. At Summit, we often turn to Burgundy because our chef [Bertrand Bouquin] is Burgundian, so I like to think it matches his food pretty well,” Buckelew says. That doesn’t mean new world wines are ignored at The Broadmoor. At Summit, Buckelew states 40 percent of the wine list is new world. In Penrose Room, Baldwin says most of the wine list is European, but “You can still drink great American Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, because if that’s what a guest is looking for, they’re going to find the best here.” And at Charles Court, the entire wine selection is from the U.S. “It’s a tribute to American wine. We felt that complemented the cuisine there, because it’s very hearty with big flavors, which respond extremely well to those powerful new-world styles of wine,” Baldwin says.

One World Baldwin and Buckelew agree that wines from France and Italy are most representative of the old world. Based on centuries of winemaking tradition and

cultural identity through wine, they set the standard around the globe. But an old world original like Spain is among a rising group of European countries making wine that incorporates new world flavors. “Spain only became a modern wine producing nation in the 1970s after the death of Franco. So they took a lot of cues from the new world on how to make wine,” Buckelew says. “That’s why I think Spanish wine is hot in the U.S. It’s almost a hybrid between what people like from the new world, which are bold flavors, but can also be food friendly,” he adds. Other old world countries with long histories of making wine for regional consumption, like Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia, have followed Spain’s lead and are producing wines that lean toward new world styles. Baldwin says this is due to recent investment in modern winemaking technology and large market tastes. “I think a lot of them are dreaming about being heavily into the American market, for example. They look at the success Spain has had and are trying to follow suit. For the entry-level winemaker, new world is certainly a style to emulate because they can sell more of it,” Baldwin says. If that trend continues, Buckelew says the distinction between old world and new world may disappear someday. “It probably won’t happen in our lifetime. For now, both sides are inching closer, with some new world wines starting to incorporate more old world flavors, while the old world is adopting some of the new world’s modern winemaking technology.” “They’ve realized what the major markets want, like theU.S., U.K. and China. Those places tend to like big flavors and in-your-face styles, and we’re seeing a lot of European countries shift in that direction. We’re even starting to see it in recent vintages from Bordeaux and Burgundy,” Baldwin says.

A Cocktail Revolution By Mckenzie Brown | Photography by Todd Nakashima

G

one are the days when margarita mixers ruled and the Pina Colada was considered exotic. Cocktails have come a long way in recent years, and restaurants and bars around the country are shaking up a fresh approach to the spirited drink. Cocktail pairing, the art of pairing cocktails with food, is more than just the latest craze— it’s the next, natural step in combining the gastronomic flavors of the kitchen with what’s happening behind the bar. “This is part of catching up to where we were before Prohibition,” says Robert Leavy, head bartender at Summit. Bartenders around the country are creating their own spirit infusions by searching out the highest quality products from artisanal producers, using the freshest ingredients and tapping into the vast resources of the kitchen. “The cocktail should be balanced, using the freshest and the best ingredients to allow the art of cooking and mixing to show off the talent of the chef and the mixologist,” says Junior Merino, owner of The Liquid Chef Inc. and former bartender at The Modern in New York. Leavy has spent countless hours at Summit perfecting their cocktails. By making sure the beverages are consistent —that everything is measured, sampled and tested—they know they are supplying a premium product. “We are really passionate about what we

do,” says Bertrand Bouquin, executive chef of Summit and Penrose Room. For him, working in coordination with the bar and creating innovative cocktail pairings is one of his favorite parts of the job. “When I cook, I imagine everything I have to work with. The possibilities are endless,” he says. Sweet Potato and Pear SouP Created by bertrand bouquin

As a young room service waiter, Bill Roub rolled a breakfast cart up to a guest suite at The Broadmoor and knocked. President Dwight Eisenhower answered the door. No Secret Service, no bodyguards. No one else was in the room. “It was just the president and me,” Roub recalls. “We had a nice chat.” That was in the 1950s. “After President Kennedy was assassinated, that all changed,” Roub says. “But until then, you could take a room service order up to the president and nobody stopped you. Now you can’t even get on the same floor.” Retired since 1986 as Food and Beverage Manager of The Broadmoor, Roub has lots of tales to tell about famous folks who stayed here over the years. He met presidents and princesses, movie stars, Olympic stars and fourstar generals. They came to play golf, relax, enjoy the mountain air and scenery—and the pampered privacy.

Gracious Guests Dignitaries, such as John F. Kennedy, George Bush, Ronald Reagan, Henry Kissinger and the like have been guests here. Most, he recalls, were gracious guests. When Col. Charles Lindbergh came as part of a panel deciding the future location of the U.S. Air Force Academy, Roub saved him a prime window seat. Lindbergh arrived while Roub was away from his post and was seated at a table by the kitchen door. When Roub discovered the faux pas, he rushed over to Lindbergh and offered to give him a better table. Lindbergh declined, saying

he was perfectly content where he was. “He didn’t want any special treatment,” Roub recalls. “That was one of the things that famous people liked about The Broadmoor,” says former room service waiter Carl Smith, who worked at The Broadmoor in the 1970s. “They were left alone. Nobody made a big deal out of their presence, and that’s the way most of them wanted it. At The Broadmoor, they could get privacy.” Not everyone who stayed here, however, fit the mold of a dignitary. Roub recalls when pop singer and teen idol Bobby Sherman stayed at the hotel. »

Sherman was the star of the 1960s ABC television series “Shindig” and his own musical show “Getting Together,” which was canceled after just 13 episodes. Young girls camped outside the property and tried to bribe Roub, the young room service waiter at the time, to tell them what room he was in. He didn’t. “We basically treated [celebrities] the same as any other guest—or maybe it’s that we treated all our guests like celebrities,” he says. When Vice President Spiro Agnew decided at the last minute he wanted to stay at The Broadmoor, the Secret Service demanded that all the rooms below his suite be vacated. The Broadmoor declined, saying their regular summer guests were staying there and they wouldn’t put them out. Agnew stayed anyway.

There’s always a Prima Donna Not all guests were easy. Actress Joan Crawford—a top film star in the ‘40s and ‘50s and subject of a notso-flattering book by her daughter, titled “Mommie Dearest”—demanded absolute star treatment. Her visit was presaged by a dictum to The Broadmoor staff that “Miss Crawford is a star and will be treated as a star,” Roub remembers. “She could be… difficult, shall we say.”

Staff Favorites Nevertheless, most celebrity guests brought smiles to staff faces. A favorite was pianist Liberace, famously loved for his flamboyant artistry and extravagant tuxedos. In the years when the International Center presented a summer entertainment series, which spotlighted acts from comedian Danny

Thomas to Rowan and Martin of “Laugh In,” locals and guests of The Broadmoor alike came in droves to see Liberace perform. “He considered this a vacation because he only had to play one or two shows a day, unlike Vegas,” Roub says. He had a great sense of humor, too. “One night when he came in for dinner, I asked him if he’d like a table by the window or one farther back in the room. He said, ‘Oh, I’ll take that far table. Maybe you can sell the window table to someone for 20 bucks.’” Comedian Jack Benny, a laconic wit who was a radio personality, film star and who had his own television show in the early 1950s, also performed at The Broadmoor. Part of Benny’s “character” was his excessive cheapness, but Roub and others who served him at The

Broadmoor say he was actually quite generous—though he always told them to keep it quiet. Author Truman Capote stayed here during the filming of “In Cold Blood.” “Each night, as he left the Penrose Room, he’d come up to me and say, in that funny little voice of his, ‘I want to thank you for being so kind to my dinner guests.’” And there are lots of John Wayne stories, mostly involving the actor’s pervasive and sometimes quirky sense of humor. Roub remembers one time when a waiter was taking a tray of shrimp up to a private party on the service elevator. “John Wayne got into the elevator— I’m not sure why he was on the service elevator–and he began eating the shrimp off the tray. The waiter told him he couldn’t do that, and Wayne replied it

would be OK. He’d go to the party and serve the shrimp himself. And he did.” The guests were surprised and delighted, to say the least. One time, the story goes, cowboy Monty Montana rode his horse into the hotel lobby, up the spiral staircase to the second floor, and into The Broadmoor’s Main Ballroom to entertain a visiting Russian hockey team. Sounds like hotel lore, but those who where there swear it is true. Goldie Hawn was a frequent visitor, starting from her “Laugh In” days. She came here on her honeymoon and reportedly ordered a hot fudge sundae every night of her stay. “This place has seen a who’s who of the 20th century,” says Bob McIntyre, who was the hotel photographer for 58

I got a Christmas card from him that year—and for 25 years after that. Imagine.” More than 200 of McIntyre’s photos can be seen in the hallway gallery at Broadmoor West. The hotel still caters to many famous people, but current names are never divulged.

n Labor Day weekend The Broadmoor’s West Golf Course is host to a different kind of drive. The Rocky Mountain Concours d’Elegance calls the course’s manicured fairways home for the holiday. In just its second year, the classic vehicle competition is so young it still has its new-car smell, but the Concours is

way more than your average auto show. Look no further for proof than last year’s winner for Best in Show—a restored 1930 Minerva AL. This isn’t a Friday night muscle-car club gathering at the local drive-thru. The combination of competitors and location makes this the kind of event other car shows whisper about. Cars in competition for Best in Show at Rocky Mountain Concours—one

of just 25 auto events nationwide selected to present the prestigious Lee Iaccoca Award to a collector—aren’t just automobiles; they are art. Renovated classics are put through thousands of hours of rehabilitation and can be worth millions. Dan Kane, the event’s co-founder and CEO, says participating cars are worth up to $5 million. Plus, it can cost $25,000 to prepare the cars and get them to the event. Keep in mind that

entrants are not competing for money; that all goes to charity (see sidebar). A successful inaugural event and a highly regarded returning chief judge, Paul Sable, should ensure a top crop of vehicles. “We are getting nominations from all over the country,” Kane says. The cars are certainly the stars, but the biggest draw may be a first family of auto racing: the Unsers. Cars from the revered family’s Albuquerque-based museum will be exhibited, and Al Sr. and Bobby are the featured speakers at Saturday night’s festivities. Why this racing family? Simple. Local ties. Five generations ago, the first Unsers in America settled in Colorado Springs. Four generations have joined the ranks of the mentally different by strapping themselves into race cars, defying the laws of sanity and zooming up Pikes Peak’s narrow dirt road for the annual International Hill Climb. The family holds 39 overall or class wins in the event, more than any other brood. An Indy car and several Hill Climb cars will be part of the Unser display. While that may be the biggest draw, it’s not the only thing attendees have to look forward to. Two-wheeled vehicle fans are sure to enjoy the display that highlights the history of the British-built Vincent motorcycle and features several of the world-famous bikes. New this year will be nostalgia- and modern-era hot rod classes, and a non-judged rubber tire military class, in a nod to the troops. Best-selling, action-adventure author Clive Cussler is expected to bring a classic from his 80-strong car collection, too. A charity golf tournament caps things off on Labor Day. Classic cars and motorcycles. Racing royalty. Vintage road tour. Food and wine. Pristine setting. Golf. Tens of thousands of dollars to charity. Excellence has found a home.

Charities Benefit At its heart, the Rocky Mountain Concours d’Elegance is a charitable endeavor. Car and motorcycle owners compete for trophies and prestige, and the money goes to charity. This year’s benefiting charities are: • Sentinels of Freedom Scholarship Foundation, an organization that provides scholarships and other assistance to U.S. service members injured in the line of duty since Sept. 11, 2001 (www.sentinelsoffreedom.org) • The Iacocca Foundation, which directs funds toward organizations conducting diabetes-cure research (www.iacoccafoundation.org) • Sunny Vista Living Center, at nearly 100 years old, a business that provides care and medical services to the elderly in Colorado Springs (www.sunnyvistalivingcenter. smasbiz.com)

J

ulie and Spencer Penrose, the founders of The Broadmoor, envisioned their resort as a place of beauty that would inspire creativity for all that came to enjoy in its splendor. Since opening in 1918, The Broadmoor has fulfilled that vision, sparking the imagination of artists and art lovers alike. More than anything else, Julie and Spencer loved to travel. And, like other wealthy Americans around the turn of the 20th century—such as John Pierpont Morgan and Andrew Carnegie—the Penroses wanted to share the best of art and culture from around the globe with their own countrymen. With that vision, Julie hired more than 100 Italian artists to embellish the various spaces of The Broadmoor with intricate plasterwork and paintings. They decorated the beams inside the main lobby with motifs from classical mythology that incorporate the local landscape of Colorado Springs. Carrying on this tradition more recently, local artist Mickey Baxter-Spade painted more than 20 murals, ceilings and floors. Artwork, antiques and relics that Julie and Spencer brought back from their

extensive travels abroad can be seen in every corner of The Broadmoor. Two exquisite stone statues they purchased in Asia adorn the entry at Charles Court restaurant, and several reproductions of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec enliven the Tavern Restaurant. But it was Pauline Chapel that was undoubtedly Julie’s most beloved contribution to The Broadmoor and the art community of Colorado Springs. Named after her granddaughter, the chapel was modeled after a 14th-century Italian church and houses a stunning collection of religious art and historic furnishings that Mrs. Penrose chose herself. Among the many treasures are an early 16th-century Flemish altarpiece flanking the sanctuary, and four chapel kneeler chairs inside the communion rail, said to be from the private chapel of King Louis XVI of France. It’s no surprise that Europe held a special place in their hearts; after all, Julie was of French heritage. Their quest to bring the best of European art and culture to their home in the U.S., is a tradition carried on by The Broadmoor to this day. Look no further than the Golden Bee pub, which features a 19th-century bar that was shipped from England and reassembled in Colorado Springs. Mrs. Penrose, who stated that she

Guests can choose from courses in painting, drawing or photography, and create their picture on site (en plein air, or “in the open air”), working directly from the source of their inspiration.

The Gallery The celebrated artist

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864 – 1901) is best known for his paintings and prints of bohemian nineteenth-century Paris nightlife. While traveling in France, the Penroses purchased several of Toulouse-Lautrec’s prints, which originally served as advertisements for various performances. One of the artist’s favorite subjects was can-can dance legend Jane Avril, who worked at the Moulin Rouge nightclub in the late 1800s. Charles Tutt, Jr., son of Spencer Penrose’s friend and colleague Charles Tutt, Sr., rounded out the collection in the 1950s by purchasing additional prints in New York. They were all on view in The Broadmoor’s Tavern restaurant until 2000, when they were moved to the Penrose House. Tours of the art at the Penrose House are available by appointment on the first Monday of every month. Call (719) 577-7000 for more information. Guests can also enjoy reproductions of these prints in the Tavern at any time.

On view

in the Pompeiian Room at The Broadmoor is a series of original drawings by Vernon Howe Bailey (American, 1874 – 1953). Spencer Penrose hired Bailey shortly after the hotel opened in 1918 to capture each area, documenting its original essence for posterity. Bailey was an inspired choice for this commission, as his specialty– and what he was best known for—was sketching the hustle-bustle of everyday life in Europe and America.

at The Broadmoor that remains somewhat of a mystery is an untitled portrait of an old man, by Randall Davey (American, 1887 – 1964), located inside the entrance of the main building, in the hall toward the theater. As one story goes, Davey, who taught at Julie Penrose’s Broadmoor Art Academy and the school at the Art Institute of Chicago, created this painting as a self-portrait in old age, though he actually painted it when he was in his 30s. But according to another story, the painting’s subject was Mrs. Penrose’s gardener. Indeed, Davey was known for his portraits of workers and scenes from everyday life. More of this artist’s work can be seen on the walls of the nearby Will Rogers Memorial Shrine, the Penroses’ gravesite. 90th Anniversary | The Broadmoor Magazine

million albums. Singing aside, Gill and Grant, who were married in 2000, are also deeply involved philanthropists, and that’s what brings them to The Broadmoor this year for an event to benefit Challenge Aspen. Founded in 1995 by Houston Cowan and Amanda Boxtel, the purpose of Challenge Aspen is to provide people with disabilities access to recreational,

cultural and competitive experiences year round in Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley. In its first year of operation, the program served 129 people. Last year, it had 772 participants, 70 percent of whom were children under 18. For the past five years, Gill and Grant (who made The New York Times bestseller list with her 2007 book “Mosaic: Pieces of My Life So Far”) have been deeply involved in the program. “Vince and Amy are long-time friends and supporters of Challenge Aspen,” says Cowan, CEO. “And now for the first time, they have an opportunity to show that support at an event hosted by The Broadmoor.” Fittingly, the July 28 benefit performance by Gill, Grant and friends takes place as the U.S. Senior Open starts its week-long run on The Broadmoor’s championship East Golf Course. An avid golfer himself, the country singer launched the Vince Gill Pro-Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament in 1993 (“The Vinny”) to support junior-golf programs in Tennessee. And together with Grant, he holds an annual golf classic in Aspen/Snowmass, the fifth edition of which takes place August 4 and 5. The golf circle is completed by the presence of Fred Funk as co-chair of the Challenge Aspen benefit at The Broadmoor. Funk is only the second player in history to win both the PGA Tour and Champions Tour in a single year. When you add golf and music to a program that gives the benefit of the great outdoors to people with disabilities, you have an impressive package that’s hard to beat. And that’s exactly the package you’ll have when Challenge Aspen comes to The Broadmoor. For information and reservations, call (970) 923-0578 or (877) 281-6736.

Pikes Peak or Bust By Irene Thomas

P

ikes Peak is not Colorado’s tallest mountain—to be accurate it’s ranked 30th in the Rocky Mountain State. Yet, its renown tops all the others and, in fact, prompted pioneers to proclaim their goal of “Pikes Peak or Bust” when they dreamed of heading to the American West. Indeed, with its dramatic locale right at the edge of the Great Plains, countless wagon trains enjoyed it as their first sighting of the promised land. Today, you can easily travel year round to the top of Pikes Peak on the world’s highest cog railway. Over 100 years old, the Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway is the highest cog railway in the world, as well as the highest railway in North America and the Northern Hemisphere. By the way, it has a perfect

safety record. The Pikes Peak Cog Railway’s top speed is about 9 mph. During the 8.9-mile, three-hour, round trip, you’ll pass through eight distinct life zones. Along the way,

The original Cog was built in 1890 and purchased by Mr. Penrose in 1925 and is still owned by The Broadmoor.

100

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

look for yellow-bellied marmots, big horn sheep, mule deer, as well as the occasional wild turkey or eagle. You’ll pass through streams, stands of blue spruce, bristlecone and Ponderosa pines, ending up in Alpine tundra above the tree line with incredible, expansive views. When you reach the 14,110-foot summit, you’ll be greeted with an exhilarating, if somewhat bracing, blast of chilly air—even in August. Peering out into seeming infinity, to the east stretches the Great Plains out beyond the border of Colorado and Kansas. If the weather is clear, you’ll see the skyscrapers of downtown Denver. You are allowed 30 to 40 minutes on the top of Pikes Peak. Take in the views, then step inside the Summit House gift shop, where you can indulge in world’s best highaltitude doughnuts. Summit House insists that doughnuts theoretically should not be able to be made at such a height—but here they are, and winningly so. Lines are long, so don’t be late. Prices for the cog railway start at $31 for adults and $17 for children ages 3 to 12. Reservations are advised, particularly during the summer season. For more information, call (719) 685-5401.


For more than 100 years, passengers have taken the cog railway in safety and comfort to the top of Pikes Peak, 14,110 feet. Relax, enjoy the views and watch for bighorn sheep and other wildlife as you head up in safe and modern Swiss-made railcars.

S FOR THE FAMILY

A Holiday Treat By Irene Thomas

H

ere’s something that will surely keep the little ones away from the TV. The Broadmoor’s holiday-season, gingerbread village is the culmination of months in the making—a glorious, mesmerizing monument to culinary arts and creativity. Executive Pastry Chef Randy Mikulas, a 50-something father of seven, breaks into a big grin when he describes the birth of the village. “I start conceiving the theme around Halloween,” he says, “and we begin construction right

after Thanksgiving.” Every year, Mikulas utilizes his staff of 23 apprentices to bring the creation to life, along with 300 pounds of sugar and like amounts of other ingredients. The village runs between 30 to 60 feet long, depending upon space available. The gingerbread, if laid out flat, would cover nearly 1,000 square feet. “Each apprentice is only allowed seven hours from baking to completion of his or her own assigned section,” he explains. “Half of the program is tears, half is jubilation.” Finally, first, second and third place awards are given

to the apprentices who best carried out their instructions. The theme is new each holiday season, as are all of the structures. The theme for 2007 was the North Pole, with Mikulas himself making the grand centerpiece of Santa’s home, an exquisite ice-like villa. Other themes have included such as a Medieval Christmas, Beach Christmas, Alpine and mountain scenes.

It’s not just the staff that is involved with gingerbread houses at The Broadmoor, however. Each year, several hundred guest children make their own gingerbread houses in a workshop on a December morning. The little houses give them a taste of the immense amounts of talent and effort that go into the making of the big village, and make a nice souvenir (or tasty snack) to take home.

Seven Continents in Seven Nights By Irene Thomas

T

he Broadmoor’s children’s activity program is embarking on a journey this summer—around the globe. Each night of the week, Bee Bunch will take an interactive plunge into different cultures, exploring their cuisines, games, traditions, natural environments, wildlife and more. The four-hour expedition is designed to entertain, amuse and to educate as well. Here are several of the evening's plans: •

The week starts with Monkey Monday, a South America night, during which children learn about the continent home to the largest variety of monkey species in the world. What else? Naturally, Bee Bunch will engage the kids in all kinds of monkey business.

Wallaby Wednesday is the evening Down Under, in which Bee Bunchers will do “kangaroo reviews” of the unusual, fascinating creatures of Australia. Everyone will also get a chance to try out their “didgeridoo” skills.

Finishing off the expedition, Shivering Sunday is a frigid Antarctic affair with the amusement of waddling penguins and playful seals. Bee Bunch will take your kids to venture out onto the glaciers and ice shelves to discover just who, how and what goes on in Antarctica.

Bee Bunch aims to take kids away from the television and video games and into discovery. While you’re enjoying a night at Charles Court or having a drink at The Tavern, why not let your children explore the world— Broadmoor style?

S DAY TRIP

The Royal Gorge By Irene Thomas

O

n a chilly, December day, my three teens and I drove about an hour south from The Broadmoor, on a curvy, small highway through little towns and open plains to arrive at one of the world’s most breathtaking attractions—The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. Although I grew up in nearby Denver, it was my first time at the park, and I was very curious to see if the reality lived up to the legend. Indeed, it does. This is one of those sights that truly take your breath away. The highest suspension bridge in the world, the Royal Gorge suspends 1,052 feet over the plummeting, craggy canyon floor below it. The height is astounding, mind-boggling, awesome—in the intended sense of the word. I wasn’t sure about visiting in the wintertime, but as it turned out, the stark beauty of the rock was spectacular against the remnants of snow and ice. While its

108

The Broadmoor Magazine | 2008/2009

austerity was magnificently compelling, I’d like to come back in the spring or summer to see the contrast. Although there was plenty for us to do in December, only a few of the 20 additional attractions at the park were open at that time. In the warm weather, the options are plentiful, especially for families. There’s the Wapiti Western Wildlife Park, carousel, petting zoo, burro rides, entertainment pavilion and a San Francisco-style trolley. Still, the main attraction—the Royal Gorge Bridge— makes the trip worth it in itself. My kids and I were thrilled with our drive over the majestic bridge, a legendary ode to engineering. Many opt to walk it, but frankly, I’m not a “height” person and the car made me feel more secure. We also took the world’s longest, single-span aerial tram, which glides across the Gorge at 2,200 feet affording exceptional views. Yes, I was a bit, okay, very nervous, but kept it to myself and felt rewarded for the experience.

Another must-see-and-do at the Park is the railway—the steepest incline railway in the world, that is. With its 45-degree angle, it is one of the most difficult transport structures ever built. We descended down the granite, canyon walls onto the canyon floor below—don’t be surprised if your ears pop, as mine did. For the thrill seekers in your party, send them on the world’s highest Royal Rush Skycoaster, a free-fall tower that takes its riders 50 mph to hang 1,200 feet above the Arkansas River. After our visit to the bridge and park, we headed back north to Canon City, where the independently-run Royal Gorge Route Railroad is based. Colorado’s oldest, scenic railroad, the train has been taking passengers through the Arkansas River’s Royal Gorge canyon since 1879. The Gourmet Lunch train, was the perfect way to end our day—a three-course lunch, white-linen tables, a dining car that slowly coasts below the Royal Bridge, and three, very, happy teenagers. Pure bliss.

hen The Broadmoor opened its doors in June 1918, the world outside was in the midst of uncertain times. World War I was coming to an end, and tuberculosis and influenza was rampant. Over the next 90 years, history unfolded, and The Broadmoor lived through it, developing its own unique history. From Prohibition to the Great Depression, from the civil rights movement to the Cold War, The Broadmoor grew alongside the times and played host to some of the world’s most influential and powerful. Looking back at The Broadmoor’s 90-year history, you soon realize that The Grand Dame of the Rockies is more than a resort; it is a living history a landmark of the old West, a symbol of the American dream and a story of determination. And it all began with a man named Spencer Penrose… >>

Construction It was 1916 when Spencer Penrose, a young, boisterous, high-society type, who had made his fortune in gold and copper mining, bought the old Broadmoor Casino and Hotel. His plan was not a modest one. His intention was to completely transform the Pike’s Peak region into the resort destination of the West. He would do this by bringing the best of Europe and the best of the U.S. to The Broadmoor. Spencer hired Warren and Wetmore, the New York architectural and design firm that designed Grand Central Terminal, to design The Broadmoor’s main building. Spencer and his wife Julie brought in 100 Italian artisans and craftsmen to do the elaborate ceiling work you see today. From architects to artisans, no stone was left unturned. As construction was well under way, the Broadmoor’s history began to form stories that would be told for the next 90 years and beyond. Look at the ceiling over the fireplace in the central Mezzanine area, and you will see evidence of this history in the form of two dancing cherubs. The Italian gentleman who was assigned to paint the mural in the Blue Room (as it was then called) was a very religious man. He believed that no one could do anything perfect except God. Finishing the ceiling, he became nervous as he felt this was his most perfect work. In order to save himself from what he was sure would be certain death, he created a purposeful flaw. If you look at the cherub who has his back to you, note that he has two right feet. On the opposite end of the room, the cherubs are repeated. There, the cherub has two left feet. The artist lived on for some years after.

Prohibition Spencer Penrose was an antiProhibitionist of some renown. A few months after he and his wife Julie opened The Broadmoor, Spencer brought 55 top hoteliers and five press people by private train from New York to Colorado Springs to show off his

property. In his invitation letters, he advised his guests to bring “five bottles of your favorite cologne,” a euphemism for illegal alcohol. He also had a flatbed car on the train guarded by a U.S. Marshall. The flatbed contained what Spencer called his “gasoline.” During their trip, the men (who did not bring their wives)w enjoyed dinner dances every night, drove their cars up Pikes Peak in what was the precursor to the Pikes Peak Hill Climb race, played polo, golf and raced bi-planes to Denver and back. When they all returned to New York, this group that Spencer dubbed “The Hundred Million Dollar Club,” as that was their estimated worth at the time, awarded Spencer with a plaque dubbing him a Bon Vivant of Rare Accomplishment and The Prince of Entertainers. The story of the trip and the club (which still exists today as the Tavern Club of top hoteliers) is told in The Broadmoor’s Hotel Bar. Make sure that you have the bartender tell you the story of the murals, too.

Discovery When The Broadmoor’s current CEO Steve Bartolin started at the hotel, he was inspecting an area under the old Main pool (which is now gone). As he was walking through the basement with the hotel’s maintenance staff, he spotted a small door partially hidden behind some filing cabinets. He asked if anyone knew what was behind the door. No one did. Moving the cabinets, they broke open a lock and were nearly bowled over by the smell of rotting hay and fermentation. It seems that Spencer had hidden three flatcars of alcohol in the tunnels that ran from the original casino to the “houses of ill repute” that were located across the street in the mining days. He apparently either forgot about them after the repeal of Prohibition or neglected to tell anyone about them before he died in 1939. Some of the bottles were bad; some were kept by the hotel as part of a collection. Look next to the Tavern restaurant on the lobby level and see one of the most

famous places in the hotel. Bottle Alley contains many bottles from Prohibition, most of which were consumed by Spencer and Julie Penrose and their guests over the years. If you look closely, you will see bottles where Spencer not only wrote where the libation was consumed, but who he was with at the time. Today, the memory of Spencer and Julie Penrose lives on through The Broadmoor. During your stay, take time out to look at the artwork, walk the grounds and appreciate the architecture, remembering some of the stories we have told you here. To learn more about the history of The Broadmoor, talk to the concierge and set up a history tour.
