Snow can't slow St. Patrick's Day in North Routt

Residents like their corned beef and cabbage with a little ski-joring

St. Paddy's Day in North Routt County is not for the faint of heart. Saint Paddy's Day at Steamboat Lake Marina means watching a galloping horse and rider take a tumble in the snow. It means chowing down on a steaming plate of corned beef, cabbage and boiled potatoes in a driving snow squall. And it means watching grown men who should be pretty well sick of their snow shovels at this point in the winter, riding them like horse-powered sleds.
