Tips and tricks to locating your favorite antlered-animal.

Picture this. One day you’re driving along Walton Creek Road, and you happen to see several cars pulled to the side of the street. Just as you’re wondering what they might be looking at, you turn to find a Mama Moose and her baby crossing the road.

Welcome to your typical day in Steamboat. You always see something exciting, whether its a bear, a moose, an elk, or someone still rocking out in 80s ski gear. 

Moose can be a tricky animal to spot, and can even be dangerous to approach. So understanding the animal and also knowing how to remain safe is paramount in your moose-spotting adventures.

Growing up in Steamboat, one of my favorite events was the rubber ducky race. I would love to watch the ducks float down the river, and would often choose random duckies to cheer on as they made their way down the Yampa.

On August 25 this event will happen again to benefit Northwest Colorado Health. Head down to the Old Town Hot Springs in Steamboat to watch the duckies race down the slides. Ticket holders sponsoring winning ducks will win cash prizes and the opportunity to brag that you had the fastest duck around!

Northwest Colorado Health supports community wellness through programs and services helping people of all ages. They work to ensure that everyone is healthy and can afford health care in Colorado. Some of their programs include the

The Routt County Fair is celebrating its 105th birthday this year!

That’s right, in 1914 Routt County residents began to meet to celebrate our county’s agricultural heritage. Some of their descendents still  compete in the fair each year, showing off their agricultural feats to the crowd. As the fair ends on August 18, it’s best to run over now to check out the action!

At the fair you can get a taste of the rodeo with events such as the pig wrestling, youth bull riding, and mini bronc bustin’. There is also a home arts competition for baked goods and art. At night there is a barn dance where you can show off your best swing dancing and two-stepping skills. Tonight there will even be a demolition derby at 7:30 pm!

The most famous part of the

Once a month we will write on a cool part of Steamboat that we feel showcases the town’s character. 

The Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund has a goal to get people outside and into the great outdoors. 

In Steamboat hiking, biking, or even just strolling down your favorite trail would not be possible without the hard work responsible for keeping the trail safe to both humans and the environment. The Trail Maintenance Endowment fund manages this by determining the need and priorities required to tend to Steamboat’s greatest trails.

There are several ways that they do this, through the establishment of the Friends of the Wilderness, a group that volunteers to fell trees and patrol the forest.

Recently, The Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund has

Becoming a Steamboat local is a special moment. Suddenly you seem much cooler to all of your friends outside of town, and not only that, but you become friends with everyone in town too. Here is my carefully-researched check-list for you to know that you are truly a Steamboat local.

1. Meeting Billy Kidd

Billy Kidd is a Steamboat Legend that everyone is somehow friends with. This is probably due to the fact that he always seems to have a presence at special events around town and on the mountain. Billy Kidd won a silver and bronze medal in slalom skiing in the 1964 Olympics. Around town, he is also famous for telling everyone he meets that “Anyone can be an Olympian.” If you ever want to ski with Billyl, just listen to the daily snow report to
