Contractor purchases the St. Cloud Mountain Club
Jim Johnson, the chief executive of the general contracting firm that built the Edgemont luxury condominium project, has purchased the St. Cloud Mountain Club in Torian Plum Plaza.
Johnson is president and CEO of GE Johnson, typically ranked among the top five largest general contractors in Colorado;
The St. Cloud Mountain Club previously was owned and operated by James “Jamie” Temple.
“I think the Club is working very well,” Johnson said “I don’t plan on much change at all. Our staff and the service we provide is first class and will continue.”
Through the change in ownership, the Club will become debt free, he added.
GE Johnson was the general contractor on the construction remodel of the club. The contracting firm also built the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs and the Westin Hotel in Avon.
St. Cloud Club General Manager Luke Dudley said the past summer has seen the addition of more long-term parking and ski storage for the cub.
Johnson announced a discounted membership price of $50,000 for the next five memberships. They include valet parking, ski storage and ski valet, a private locker and a private member’s lounge, where members have access to a full bar, private lunch, après ski food service and a children’s area. The previous membership fee was $85,000. Dudley noted that there already has been strong interest in the discounted memberships, with the first one already sold, and expects the remaining four memberships to be sold before the end of the year.
The Club also has repositioned its public service in the evenings, Dudley said. Formerly the Powder Room, the new night spot will be known as the St. Cloud Mountain Lounge and will be open to the public at 5 p.m. in the winter.
“The evening offering will feature a mix of wine, martinis, tapas and espresso in a mature, intimate and luxurious space,” Dudley said.
The St. Cloud Mountain Club also will continue to host private events for members, the public and nonprofit fundraisers.
