Steve and Jeanne Beckley
Steve and Jeanne Beckley are hikers, skiers, and outdoors adventurers. Steve grew up on the Western Slope in Colorado and graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a BS in Petroleum Engineering. Jeanne was raised in Minnesota and graduated from Gustavas Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, with a BA in Math and Computer Science. Steve began working in the petroleum industry and Jeanne in the information technology industry.
After 16 years in their respective fields, they decided that they wanted to live in a smaller town, wear jeans and hiking boots to work instead of suits, and raise their children in a more laid-back rural atmosphere. That was 1999, when they opened Glenwood Caverns and the Historic Fairy Caves to the public. It first opened to the public in the late 1800s, but had been closed since 1917. Today, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is a thriving vacation destination.
Steve and Jeanne are now eager to help bring another historic Glenwood Springs site back to life with the opening of the Iron Mountain Hot Springs. Together, they bring a passion for community and dedication to service to the team.
