A winter storm pummeling the Front Range is having an indirect impact on Steamboat. Unfortunately, Steamboat isn't getting much of the snow being dumped to the east. However, the blizzard conditions in the Denver area have prompted the cancellation of hundreds of flights at Denver International Airport, including the four flights between Steamboat and Yampa Valley Regional Airport.
The Steamboat Ski Area is being purchased by a veteran ski resort developer and operator with access to significant financial resources. The new Steamboat Springs Community Center will be built adjacent to the Stock Bridge Transit Center west of downtown, and could be completed in late fall 2007. If making a huge holiday meal isn't on your to-do list Monday, let the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors do all the work.
