I wish all the time that I grew up in Steamboat but I feel lucky that Alden and Neve can instead. This is Alden with a couple of his SSWSC buddies before they head up the lift for their first day of U12 training at Howelsen hill. Any kid who is safe, well fed and loved is lucky. That said I never lose my sense of amazement of how lucky kids are that get to grow up in Steamboat.
Nearly every day I notice something small or big that is "normal" here but improbable or vacation worthy most other places. It may be cool things about the weather, something they talked about in school, powder days, mountain biking or other things I could only dream of doing when I grew up. They or their friends and likely their coaches ski raced in the US Ski Team or…

Wendy & I were talking at breakfast this morning about how it still amazes us after all these years that we live in Steamboat. We feel lucky every day and the kids are even luckier with all of the amazing things they get to do. Years ago we sat eating our breakfast at Winona's many times wishing we lived here and it was cool to think about that as we sat there this morning. What we didn't have at the time were two amazing kids that we get too see growing up in Steamboat. We are so fortunate to be able to live our dreams here in Steamboat not to mention share it with Alden & Neve. I don't think it will ever get old for us. We love the amazing community here and how often we come across more special moments that…

Happy Halloween and ghoulish greetings from Jon Wade and The Steamboat Group!
The Mainstreet Steamboat downtown Halloween stroll was in full spooky swing tonight with an entire community dressed in costume. Halloween is one of our most favorite reaasons for relocating to Steamboat, and it's absolutey one of the best Steamboat get togethers of the year. The ghosts and goblins (and in our case, vampires), take over Mainstreet. The cars are redirected off of the main drag and trick or treating pedestrians get full priority. Shopkeepers, restaurant owners, bankers and Colorado Group Realty offer up cauldrons full of candy, haunted houses and even free French Fries for the kids and adults (thank you Johnny B. Good's!)
Live country music performances…

A commitment to wellness in Steamboat Springs goes back long before the term was fashionable all around the nation. One could say that Steamboat locals were pioneers of relaxation and rejuvenation. The early settlers named our town after the "chug chug chugging" sounds that the flow of the many hot springs make as they pour into rock pools throughout town. The sound of the springs reminded them of a "Steamboat" and hence the name, "Steamboat

Ahhhhh one of our most favorite weekends of the Steamboat summer is upon us - the 9th annual Steamboat Wine Festival. As much as we hem and haw that summer seems to be flying by, the onset of August kicks off with wine tasting events that will please any palate. From discerning connoisseurs to those who just love to sip and savor, the Steamboat Wine Festival is jam packed with tastings, pairings, and even a "wike" (wine + hike = "wike").
The Steamboat Group highly recommends the infamous Friday downtown wine stroll. Buy a ticket online or at Central Park Liquor, grab a wristband and a map at the courthouse tasting tent then peruse the various downtown venues hosting wine making's finest purveyors. It's also the First Friday Artwalk where local art…

This weekend we go right from red, white and blue straight into all of the colors of Steamboat. A cobalt sky, bright yellow shining sun and, hopefully, a rainbow or two. So many of our beloved guests know our cowboy history, and, so many more full and part time locals are now taking advantage of our ever growing artistic side. The kick off to the summertime arts celebration is the annual Art in the Park put on by the Steamboat Springs Arts Council. Fine artists and craftspeople dot the grass of West Lincoln Park showing off their wares and entertaining the local shoppers. Free music performances, delish dishes and, of course, the amazing Kids' creative corner complete with face painting, hot air balloon making, sand sorting and the oh so adorable…

Happy 4th of July from the Steamboat Group!
We can't think of a better place to call home. Freedom from the hustle and bustle of big cities, freedom from the congestion of cars, freedom from a life lived indoors. A place where families come together: grandparents, parents and those oh so amazing grand kids. Streamers, biking in the parade, flags & face painting all replace x boxes, wiis and ipods. We provide the backdrop, we provide the fun. All you have to do is show up and enjoy. Having an amazing time is inevitable.
"There are places I remember. All my life, though some have changed. Some forever not for better. Some have gone and some remain. All these places have their moments ... In my life, I love you more." --The Beatles
