We attended a very nice wedding. Everything was set up perfectly and the staff was relaxed and well organized. Good food. Good service. Great evening. Recommend it for events of all kinds. Hard to find, so look for NOVA Guides, and you've found it.

We thought there would be more here. There are remnants of only one building and not much else. Not worth the stop if you are traveling along Hwy 24.

A great side trip from Vail where you get to take a snowcat up over 12,000 feet in the Mountains from the base camp at Camp Hale.

Nova Guides Snomobile expert Nate Goldberg is an amazing guide & storyteller. The history of the Tenth Mountain Division during WWII is little-known & fascinating. Beginning @ Camp Hale, a National Historic Site, ride through the White River National Forest up to 12,500' scenic vistas of the Continental Divide from The Top of The Rockies!!! Video & Photo ops are... More

Camp Hale and the Memorial of the 10th Mountain Division are situated between Leadville (15.6 miles from Leadville; 22.4 miles from Vail) and Minturn (Hwy 24) in Colorado. Hwy 24 offers sights on a breathtaking beauty of Colorado nature. The Memorial to soldiers that died in battle for Italy and Aleutian Islands is near to several excellent hike trails (The... More

Ten minutes of Internet research will pay off as you prepare for your visit. A memorable drive through the the mountains (1 hour from Breckenridge, 45 minutes from Copper Mountain) and you find the site some 25 miles north of Leadville. Besides interpretive signs, the only remaining edifice is the ruin of field house foundations. Go for the scenery in... More

Visit the site of training for the 10th Mountain Division on your way to Camp Hale. I went during the winter and went snow shoeing for the day in the area around Camp Hale. There were no restroom or water points out in the vast woods. The snow was 5 feet deep in some areas and I am sure deeper... More

We took an ATV ride with Nova Guides. Todd and Stan were two of the best guides ever. We went through big mud puddles and all the way to the top where the view of the different peaks were amazing. Truly, truly recommend Nova Guides. A gorgeous and picturesque place. Great staff!!!

Before visiting this site, I had no idea about the training of American troops in Colorado. I hope that some day soon there will be a real museum to support this site and further the information that is available about the training of American troops on this site. Fortunately, our hotel offered a DVD with lots of information which made... More
