of course all this is subjective to ones preferences , now then , how many of you have been caught at the bottom when the gongi goes down? not pretty is it,? how many of you have been behind the walls of these buildings ? again not pretty is it ? the single base is an issue when the crowds hit , but then we locals know to stay away and let em have at it , they'll leave and we have all the room we want ,right ? don't get me wrong the snow is great even had the chance to ski "wild snow " talk about an experience WOW... my point over all in skiing , this mountain can't hold a candle to Aspen or a Vail ,Tohelluride or Copper look at the over all picture and Steamboat lacks in the "World Class " category . the race venue is great but what about the riders needed in the pipe line ? not all of the young care to ski , how bout boarders ? they'll have money to spend , or I hope they will , when they get older. if they can break away from their jobs at McDonalds LOL. anyhow back in my day I preferred the steeps ,long steeps like Aspen Highlands , Pali at Abasin , Alfs in Alta , that's were I am coming from. Steamboat doesn't have those kinda runs but for sure the lack of crowds for the most part are the best thing we have going.......as Rhys said......hula away

john bailey 2 weeks, 6 days ago on Parking consultant says Steamboat Springs doesn't have a 'big' downtown parking problem, but challenges remain

the bump outs were a horrible idea as those of us with long wheel bases can attest , you know , work trucks. if the knuckle heads are there looking for a turn onto 40 and off line a bit , those of us need to schooch (sp) to the left to make our right hand on the side street to avoid hitting the damn things. are people so lazy in their walking that they need this extra , what , 5 feet......I thought this was Bike Town USA you know fit , active non-obese people.....aahhhh need a break fro this carpet cleaning.........carp....~;0)

john bailey 3 weeks, 3 days ago on Spoke Talk: A roadie favorite — the P’burg loop

yes Pat , Scott is correct 131 is not the best part of this loop almost no shoulders to speak of I would stay on the county roads and do an out and back. going at speed down the h-way and not seeing the riders soon enough due to poor color choices that blend in is pretty nerve racking. don't the bikers like to be seen ? after all its not about fashion but safety , correct ? still a very cool ride with the Flat Tops in all its beauty ......
