You know....and I realise this isn't the 80's let alone the 70's.....but when I first came to Steamboat I slept in the back of my pickup until I met someone willing to "take me in" for awhile. Yeah I had cash, yeah I showered at the Health and Rec. Yeah I skied, frequented the local establishments and enjoyed the restaurants. Actually I was an O-4 in the Navy, a pilot and meandering my way to Grad School. I met guys like Jupiter Jones, Roger Perricone, Sue Johnson/Zantel, Ken Brenner, many of the "old locals".......fine folk. I know for a fact that this year's "Ski Bum" may be a future "Major Developer, City Council President, or Bank Owner".

Since then, well my family moved here after I retired from the Navy. We've spent a ton of money here raising 4 kids, SSWSC, Steamboat Soccer, Little League, American Legion, RE-2, Boy Scout Troop 1124, etc.. We've volunteered for just about everything there is to volunteer for and launched a couple of profitable small businesses. Like to think we've been a valuable part of this wonderful community. And its the warm Steamboat welcome I always and continue to receive that got me interested in moving here.

Being a "ski bum" has a well founded tradition. It doesn't mean you're a "bum" it means you're a "ski bum".....like the pleasure one gets from picking up a free lift pass, Hollywood makes movies about this and....well, some get to live the life. Personally I'd make it more of an "unwritten" Steamboat policy to tolerate those things that made Warren Miller and Steamboat great.

And I'm going to go out on a limb here....if a serious "ski bum" needs a place to park his transporation.....my number is 846-1310 :)

I like it, Harvey! I have many fond memories of sleeping just about anywhere I could find a spot,just so I could ski. It may have actually been easier to do back in my early ski bum days,due to a more tolerant attitude by ski town residents and their law enforcement officials. I think skiers/riders should be encouraged,not discouraged,and the cost of skiing is enough so that many of them need a little help. Kudos to you,Harvey for showing a little of the spirit that has always made this town a great place to live in.

I routinely have "homeless" visitors in my house, seems to average about 6 months of each 12. Sometimes referred to me by Church connections, more often it seems the Almighty handles it directly and sends them my way. Not many skiers among them, nor with money in reserve, just people needing a little help.It's a good tradition, hospitality, claimed by the South, the West, New England, the Heartland. Lets keep it alive here too. John Fielding 846-3012
