Published from about the mid 1920s through the mid 1930s, it was a weekly publication during the summer season. The big happening of the week of June 18, 1927, was the Trans-Mississippi Golf Tournament at the Broadmoor, which was expected to draw 200 entrants. Municipal band concerts, community sings, and dinner dances were scheduled later in the week. For anglers the guide also reported that "willow flies" had appeared on the streams in the mountains. Filled with advertising, illustrations, maps, "points of interest most visitors want to see," and essential details, including a list of tuberculosis sanatoriums.
