On Friday, two specialty accommodation areas will open at the 779-room Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo., in the foothills of the Rockies. New is Cloud Camp, an 8,000-square-foot main lodge with 11 one- and two-bedroom cabins at 9,200 feet above sea level on top of Cheyenne Mountain. The camp is built on the site of Broadmoor founder Spencer Penrose's Cheyenne Lodge retreat. Reopening on Friday is the Ranch at Emerald Valley, about 30 minutes up the mountains from the 779-room Broadmoor in Pike National Forest. Featuring 10 cabins and a common-room lodge, the ranch was damaged during flooding last fall and had to undergo repairs. The ranch will close for the winter season on Oct. 31. The Broadmoor also offers three top golf courses and 185,000 square feet of meeting space.
