Santa’s Workshop opening delayed by winter weather


EL PASO CO., Colo. (KRDO) -- A soft opening planned for Santa's Workshop in Cascade this weekend has been delayed by winter weather.

According to the North Pole website, "[d]ue to the large amount of snow expected in this latest storm we will need to delay our opening date- we will update our website and social channels as soon as we get updated information about this storm. We will make the determination on Saturday May 21st if we will be able to open on Sunday May 22nd depending on the amount of snow we end up with.'

As we reported last summer, the attraction was struggling to hire enough workers in 2021 to keep up with visitor demand.

  1. KRDO might look at the employment page for the attraction. This is an outdoor job that extends into winter in a relatively well-off area of people who already have lucrative jobs in the Springs. Hires will have to drive, and gas prices are high, working 40 minutes of a 6 hour shift just to get to work and back makes no sense. There are rules on things like wearing a coat. A private venue gets to make its rules and set its payment level, but if you have a burdesome job at low wages on offer it’s not the fault of the economy, Biden, Trump, or COVID if you can’t get workers. There is the county issue of our increased drug traffic and use, which makes it hard to find workers who can pa ss a drug test.
