August 17, 2021
Mountain Biking’s Newest Destination Gets Closer
Grand Junction, CO (August 17, 2021) – Building stoke and edging closer to full throttle, El Jet’s Cantina + Sky Outpost received 120% of their Kickstarter goal, putting fuel in the tank and creating a base of supporters and interest to springboard the project to the next phase.
El Jet’s Cantina + Sky Outpost visionary and illustrious Outdoor industry veteran Jen Taylor couldn’t be restrained upon hearing the news of the funding. “This is where the rubber meets the road and the dirt starts flying,” she exclaimed. “The history, the layers, the incoming infrastructure, it’s all part of the bigger picture that our team of artists and artisans are so excited to start to paint. A huge thank you to all our supporters to date and in the future. We can’t do it without this ever-growing community of awesome people.”
With rallying the community and creating interest in this historic town and location as one of the main drivers for the Kickstarter campaign, El Jet’s Cantina + Sky Outpost moves on to the next phase of capital development funding in tandem with preliminary infrastructure projects, like the magical vintage Airstream and silver bullet renovations. Each named for the person from whom they were purchased, starting with the Betty, who’s just being finished up, followed by the Hattie Rose, waiting for her turn to realize her true dream of French doors framing views of the Colorado National Monument on the banks of the Colorado River.
Celebrating Grand Junction’s special local history and people, El Jet’s Cantina + Sky Outpost will offer 71 hip, eclectic lodging units of varying vintage to modern designs, a full service cantina and bar featuring private label tequila and the best fish tacos on earth, the Baja-inspired, purpose-driven eco-resort offers immediate access to the Colorado River and Colorado National Monument. Designed in conjunction with a passionate private sector, local government, purpose led developers and with the direct input of long-time community leaders, the project is designed to complement the natural beauty and character of Grand Junction, its history and its people, revitalizing a reclaimed former junkyard and Superfund site on the banks at the confluence of the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers.
