It is all in one place, town known as Ski Town, U.S.A. Once you visit you'll find out that the local motto is, "Come for the winter and stay for the summer".

Storm after storm after storm this past month we have been steadily climbing closer to our next milestone and I knew we'd get there by the end of January 252 inches! And what a beautiful morning to enjoy powder.

The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club took over the Steamboat Springs Ski Area this past weekend for a Giant Slalom Event. All of the participants were divided up into teams and given different countries to represent.  The Steamboat Pilot covered the event and featured a picture of my son Alden on the cover. He had his tongue out and racing well for a 3rd place finish. 

Starting racing at a young age gives kids the opportunity learn and develop their skill. The kids aren't just learning about ski racing, they are learning discipline, focus, teamwork and competition.
