Some trails will be closed Saturday and Sunday on Emerald Mountain during tree removal operations, according to a news release. More than 90 Douglas fir trees will be removed from near the Howelsen Hill ski jump complex as a result of a Colorado State Forest Service study that indicated many of the trees were infested by Douglas fir beetles, the release stated. Logs will be removed by helicopter, and Robbie's Cut, Mile Run and the outrun access of the jumps will be closed, according to the release.

Water restrictions lifted for Steamboat II district

Water restrictions were lifted Thursday for the Steamboat II Metropolitan District, according to a news release. While restrictions were in place, water use was reduced by 21 percent, the release stated. Restrictions were lifted Monday for the city of Steamboat Springs, Mount Werner Water and Sanitation District and Tree Haus Metropolitan District water customers.

Golf course will continue to host Rally for the Cure

Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club officials said they will continue to host and support the annual Rally for the Cure golf tournament in Steamboat Springs. Longtime tournament director Linda Danter announced this summer that she no longer will head up the yearly golf outing that has raised nearly $300,000 in its 13 years.

Brian Thorne, director of golf at Rollingstone, said his course will remain active with the tournament regardless of who's running it. A successor to Danter has not been named.

"This is an important fundraiser for the Yampa Valley community, and we are dedicated to seeing it continue," Thorne said in a news release. "We look forward to hosting this event under its new leadership next summer."

Danter expressed appreciation for Rollingstone's past and future support.
