I requested an updated set of rental averages today for Eagle Ridge Townhomes today and got the strongest sign yet that our vacation rental market is turning the corner.  I still consider this an early sign since I haven't seen it in enough places but it is very encouraging to see that revenue picked up 10-50% for a high quality property like Eagle Ridge in the last year vs the previous year's comparable numbers.  Last winter was pretty slow overall so it is good to see that Eagle Ridge Townhomes was able to make such a solid turn.  If you would like to know more about Eagle Ridge or the rental market in Steamboat I follow them closely and can talk through where things are with you, just give me a call at 970-879-0879.

  Fish Creek falls is one of the most popular hikes in Steamboat. There are three parts to this hike. The first part is a short hike that takes you to Fish Creek Falls itself.

The quaking Aspen is known for the shimmer and shudder of its leaves. On a dry summer day, the wind blowing through them often sounds like rain.
