Logging operations will resume as early as today

Logging operations to mitigate beetle-kill at Steamboat Ski Area will resume as early as today, according to a news release.

The work, which involves a helicopter, will encompass about 25 acres and will result in the closure of the Burgess Creek drainage between Pony Express chairlift in Pioneer Ridge and Four Points chairlift from the bottom of Bar-UE down to Storm Peak Express, according to the release. The closure will remain in effect through Oct. 30 or until the work is completed.  

“It is imperative that the public understands the dangers associated with an operation of this scope and abide by all closures and signs and keep clear of the impacted areas,” said Doug Allen, vice president of mountain operations for Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp.

Outside of the closed area, trails will remain open as conditions permit.

The Habitat ReStore needs more than volunteers. Unlike a properly run similar store in Eagle, they have allowed the store to collect a lot of junk by not consistently cutting prices on existing inventory and so stuff is allowed to accumulate. When you see the same stuff there without date stamps so they don't know when to reduce the price, or you see stuff there from 10 months ago with the same prices then the basic management of the store has collapsed.

It is no fun going there and seeing the same stuff at the same price more than I am willing to pay, but they don't regularly cut the price of their existing inventory like a properly run Habitat ReStore.

It would seem to be miserable to volunteer there and see every day the failed management.
