See what it is like to Live in Steamboat from a family that moved here 3 years ago

We often dreamed what it would be like to be locals.  What would it really be like to be part of this mountain town?  Could it be as magical as when we visit then worked remotely from here part time? Could we make friends?  What would it be like to grow up here for our kids?  Are the schools really as good as they say? Would it get old?
