I think the new building is great but I will never quit complaining about paying to bring skiiers to Steamboat. If they can not afford an airline ticket, they should drive. I should not be forced to pay to bring them here.
John No, Bookmaking is illegal in Colorado.
George, Sales tax makes no difference in price of gasoline. Does not apply. When I say no competition, there is an established pecking order in the stations which rarely changes. Cheapest is the one with the dinosaur out front. .03 cents cheaper than the city market affiliated convience store. Swipe your city market card and it matches the dinosaur price. Buy 10 gallons only at ski house and you get a ski house buck, equivalent to a .10 cent per gallon discount. Once in a while that makes them the cheapest but you have to spend the buck at the ski house or in the ski house convience store so it is not a cash savings. Only way to get a real break ts to rack up gas points at city market. Everybody else is straight up from these three. There is nobody in town that will be 10 cents or 15 cents cheaper than everybody else like you will find in metropolitan areas. That is what I mean by no competition. Did not say collusion or price fixing. This is just the way it is in a small market with a very limited number of suppliers.
Look to bright side Walt. Maybe the rich tourists will spend enough there so we do not have to raise the sales tax to keep paying the airlines to fly them to Steamboat. Probably not, but there is always hope.
Maynard is probably older but I am taking him.
Road to Stagecoach sucks. I drove a propane truck to Stagecoach more than once and never put it in the ditch. Ever hear of slowing down? Bend over and grab your ankles, time for a new special tax!
I voted for Hick the first time. I will not vote for him again. He allowed a convicted murder who has had YEARS of appeal;s on the taxpayers dollars refused. He does not have the intestinal fortitude to allow justice to take its course. He will continue to waste taxpayers dollars on keeping this individual incarcerated until a governor is elected who will allow the execution. With the path to liberalism this state is taking, that will probably be never and the murderer will outlive all the parents of his young victims.
Another thing I agree with oz on.
George So we should not fill up in Silverthorne on the way back to Steamboat? Kum & Go is not the least expensive gas most of the time. Independent on the same side of street that I can not remember the name of at my advanced age. I doubt that the cost of real estate is any cheaper in Summit county than Steamboat Lack of real competition is the reason for high gas prices in Steamboat. Gas taxes in Wyoming are appreciably lower than Colorado so it will always be cheaper in Wyoming. Pay for one cashier collecting money is going to make a neglible difference in costs.
Walt They need to move to Mt Baker in Washington state. It is called Cascade Concrete but there is plenty of it!
The truth hurts Kevin.
