Bret Marx 6 days, 23 hours ago on Pipe problems: Despite changing habits, Steamboat's half-pipe will return in the fall

I don't know if the "pipe dragon" is outdated or not but I know the ppl involved in cutting the pipe take great pride in the job they do and this year the pipe was awesome! Kudos to all the pipe and park staff for a great job this year with maintenance. Now Ski Corp really needs to move everything back to Bashor Bowl. The pocket parks are great but the dispersion of them really makes Bashor look underutilized. Put all the rails and features back in one central location and I'm sure Ski Corp will see the half pipe get used much more.

Sincerely, A guy who loves riding park and pipe and hasn't taught any instructors, EVER!

Really Roger, 1 of the 1st 5 to teach the 1st 50 instructors? Do you even ride the pipe or just take the grandkids down the middle of it and screw up everyone else's run? Yeah, ppl used to hand shape a half pipe and ride in a horse drawn carriage everywhere they went too. It's called technology, welcome to 2016! The pipe this year was super dialed and rode awesome! The pipe cutting Crew does a great job with whatever equipment they are using and I'm stoked Ski Corp. has decided to bring it back next year. Of course it's with SSWSC's belly aching and funding but hey, I'll take it.

Bret Marx 1 month ago on Dog patrol: Stepped-up leash law enforcement sparks resistance, debate in Dog Town USA

Ms. Connell is exactly right. This is Steamboat Springs, not Denver. A lot of people live here and not Denver for the sole purpose of not having the big city attitude and drama. I hope she is able to implement some of here ideas and meetings. It's a shame that the "bad apples" are ruining it for all the other dog owners but that's how it goes. There are definitely incidents in which the dog is under control by voice command and I think that should seriously be taken into consideration by the animal control officers as to when a citation should be issued. Unfortunately, it's the animal control officers discretion and yes, they are just following the rules the are supposed to uphold. You can't make exceptions and that sucks.

Yeah, because none of us would have/have done such a thing in our youth. Steve and Scott I'm sure followed all the rules in their younger years. Glad you made it out Austin and have a good story now. And it sounds like you've learned a lesson. Welcome to CO.

Bret Marx 2 months, 2 weeks ago on Councilman raises idea of publicizing names of residents who violate city's leash law

Thank you for not supporting this idea of Mr. Fords, Mr. Christensen. Though I agree with Mr. Ford on a lot of his stances, this one is ridiculous. Dog Town USA is a title that really does not apply to here with two designated areas in the entire town that dogs are allowed off leash. I always enjoyed walking my dog up Emerald and Spring Creek but haven't in so long now because of the leash laws. I'm glad they are being more enforced but it's very misleading to be titled Dog Town USA when it is everything but welcoming to dogs or owners. How about public shaming bicyclists that dont stop at stop signs or abide by any traffic laws. Or how about ppl who don't return there shopping carts in central park plaza parking lot. Need I go on?

Yes, a new fee is definitely the answer. Oh, and a new tax somewhere too. For all users. Tubers, anglers, little kids wading at hippie hot springs, swimming dogs (on leash of course), sun bathers, shall I go on? Yup, Wal Mart and Sports Authority need to pay someone another fee too, for something! I'm all for more taxes, can't wait. Someone should alert the Feds too. They gotta get in on this as well. I'm super excited for more law enforcement presence on the core trail too! Hope they ticket those pesky drunk bicycle riders coming back from the free summer concerts with the dogs running along side them too. I mean, that's lost DUI revenue. Hopefully the 40 hours a week the new yellow jackets are working are all in a row, starting Monday and ending around 4pm Weds. so we can have some fun on the weekends!

Why did a prev. city council, possibly the one Alan Lanning reported to, decide purchasing a hotel that is still owed a bajillion on, think that was a good idea? Why is the sky blue? Why is water wet? Why does McDonalds serve all day breakfast? Many difficult questions with one simple answer...BECAUSE. Alan's gonna have that money by July 1st. I just know it. Now fall back in line Russel.
