The Mountain News began as an annual newsletter that Mountain Views' owners produced and mailed to Resort and Park guests once a year. It contains interesting news bits about the resort, park, town of Creede, and the area in general. We discuss anything from weather, events, latest developments and fun facts. Now, Mountain News is morphing into a seasonal E-Newsletter that we would love to share with anyone interested in Mountain Views at RiversEdge. Enjoy!
