Today I caught up with Jan Lisk, the owner of the Ouray Victorian Inn, or “the Vic”, our favorite local lodging establishment.
Jan and her husband Brian Lisk have owned the Vic since December 2008. They have two kids, two cats, and two dogs, and they are a big part of the Ouray community. Jan told me that summer is busy season and winter is fun season. They love having the ice climbers around, and of course the ice climbers love staying at the Vic. Chicks with Picks clinics have stayed there since the early beginnings in 1999 when Bill Witt ran the place.
Now, newly remodeled rooms await the visitors, along with a big daily breakfast, and the best hot tub in town. The views from the hot tub are amazing, with the Inn being located right at the lower entrance to the Ouray Ice Park and the mountains towering above. More good news: You can bring your pets when you’re staying at the Vic. So, plan to rest your weary body at the Vic next time you come climbing in Ouray!
