Time to Ride – Skiing Time Out

Last week, on Wednesday, I was able to get some afternoon time free and go bike riding with my friend Poacher.  He has lived in Steamboat about a year and had not experienced a number of trails, mountainside riding, and cruising by the river.  We…

Spring 2020 Skiing at Steamboat Springs

This year’s snowfall has been really good.  We have our average snowfall for the year, but it’s the way it came.  Consistent over the weeks of Winter.  8” here, 6” there, and, of course, the 10+” days that came around.  I was lucky enough to…

Steamboat Winter Weather 2020

This Winter has been very snowy!  We have had a number of storms that stack up on after another and provide great conditions. NOAA, at the beginning of the season, talked about cold weather and a little bit of snow for the early season.  They…

Steamboat Springs Summer 2019

This is one of the best Summers to be in Steamboat! Spring was wet.  Everyone will agree that it was off the charts with rainy weather, including two days where it snowed a few inches in town.  On Summer Solstice nonetheless!   The result is…

What is Mud Season?

September in Steamboat

September has become a favorite month for me.  Steamboat in September is a beautiful place and as the days change from warm to cool, the colors are also changing.  Our gardens are producing the last of the squash and tomatoes that they can before the…

Quick Hike up to Christie Peak

This Spring has been amazing weather!  Now, it’s starting to get a little dry.  So, I found it a great idea to hike up to Christie Peak before the Sun went down. This Summer has many mountain hikes in it for me.  There are 14,000…

Spring 2018 Trip to Fish Creek Falls Steamboat Springs

This weekend was a fantastic weather time for a day hike.  But before that, we took a bike ride down the Core Trail, next to the Yampa River.  With a slight breeze and the morning sun, we took a bike ride into town. On the…

Steamboat Springs Hot Springs

Many ski days end with a great idea: hot spring soaking.  Steamboat Springs is known for it’s high quality hot springs.  Though there are several hot springs in the area (some say over 150), three are warm enough to get a good soak.  In fact,…

Spring Skiing in Steamboat Springs

Spring skiing isn’t for everyone, and since I live here, I’ve found it is for me!  Spring skiing is a lot of fun with sunshine and warm days making snow slushy.  And the snow is pretty much no fun around 2:00, which then it becomes…
