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.
Colorado Gold Speeskating is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides the general community the opportunity to discover the sport of speedskating. Tax-deductible donations are gladly accepted. A profit and loss statement going back to Jan 1, 2016 can be found here.
