Explore the heritage of the San Luis Valley with a guided bus tour of the Sangre De Cristo National Heritage Area. Designated in 2009, the SdCNHA covers over 3000 square miles in three counties. With 11,000 years of documented human habitation, the SdCNHA is a crossroads of the centuries. Here a unique blend of Native American, Hispano, and Anglo settlement is reflected in the diversity of the people, art and traditions. The geographic isolation of our high desert valley and the peoples’ enduring ties to the land have given rise to a rich cultural heritage and ensured its preservation. Meet at Ski Hi for a bus to significant sites within the Heritage Area.
