Free Workshops at NOLO Mill
Colorado Adventure Guides is excited to be part of the project and serves as the designated winter sports guide partner. With access to over 3,000 acres of public and private land surrounding the huts, we will be offering AIARE avalanche safety courses, and Introduction to Backcountry Skiing/Splitboarding courses at the sites, and look forward to offering overnight hut trips as the buildings are restored in the future.
Designed with the layperson in mind, these workshops will be conducted by NoLo Executive Co-Director and Historian Kate McCoy and archaeologists Michelle Slaughter from Alpine Archaeological Consultants and Natasha Krasnow from Metcalf Archaeological Consultants. Participants will learn about the history of mining in Park County and the history of the North London Mine and Mill. They will tour the site and learn about existing features and their roles during the Mill’s operation. Participants will also learn about how archaeology contributes to what we can know about sites like the North London Mill.
