Colorado Gold Speeskating (AKA "Broadmoor Speedskating Club," EIN: 26-0529254) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization classified as a public charity. The club provides the general public the opportunity to discover the sport of speedskating by providing instruction, rental skates, safety equipment, and dedicated ice sessions. Tax-deductible donations are gladly accepted.
Colorado Gold Speedskating was originally formed as the Broadmoor Speedskating Club. The oldest records we can find date to around 1968, though we suspect there’s plenty of history predating that. The club's activities were initially centered around Colorado Springs and the Broadmoor Hotel. Perhaps if we search long enough in the bowels of the Broadmoor, we’ll find a photograph of the club from the 1920s with Jack Nicholson in it.
In 2009, the club changed its name to Colorado Gold to reflect a broader, more regional membership, along with the expansion of ice time into the Denver metro area. The name change also served to differentiate the club from the Broadmoor Skating Club, once and always a popular figure skating club.
