Tomichi Lodge – Help us Save Tomichi Lodge!

Tomichi Lodge – Help us Save Tomichi Lodge!

Jul 27, 2017

Dear Salida, Help Us Save Tomichi Lodge! The Tomichi Lodge has been a special part of Salida and Chaffee County's local community for almost 40 years. Hunters, mountain bikers and hikers, backcountry skiers and snowmobilers alike have all experienced and enjoyed the remote beauty Tomichi has to offer. We're always meeting people in town that celebrated a milestone birthday at the lodge, or a snowy Thanksgiving with family and friends, or someone who's great grandparents lived and mined in the old Tomichi townsite in the late 1880's... the stories are always entertaining and memorable. It's our goal to ensure the lodge is available for the community's continued memory-making enjoyment. Click the link above for details!
