Noble As Home: The Third Floor

NOLS' Noble Hotel is a touchstone for thousands of students and grads. It's also a residence for many instructors who base on the Third Floor (and from various storage lockers) in cyclic, seasonal patterns. The tumult rises and falls with the calendar, but for many instructors, the Noble is home.

ThirdflrlandingWork on the Noble continues at a frienzied pace. As many Rocky Mountain students and instructors from this long, hot summer can attest, there is still plenty of dust. Numerous extension cords stretch hither and thither like large-gauge macramé. Here's a shot of the almost-completed third floor landing. Can you identify my lovely assistant in the photo?— post your guess in the "comment" section of this blog.

NoblekitchenSince instructors live on the Noble's Third Floor, industrial-strength kitchen facilities are a must. Check out the new counters and appliances in the instructor cook room.

Details, Details

NoblediningThe Noble dining room is shaping up— notice that much of the dark-stained trim is in place and the three new French doors at the left of the image are operable. (compare this shot with the "Chez Reagan" blog entry below)

Skylight, Sky Bright

Here's a shot of the Noble Lobby stained glass ceiling that's being installed. The ~12' x14' leaded glass panel hasn't been in place for decades, but it will restore a new element of historic accuracy and elegance to the high-ceilinged lobby.

This restoration, by Wyoming artist Janet Zambai, is part of our donor-funded International Base Camp Initiative.
