@Melanie, interesting, I have not really experienced an abundance of cancellations or even delays for that matter out of HDN. Since 2006, I would say 4 maybe 5 cancellations? I hear people talk about the many cancellations, its just not been my experience. For me, I would rather take the chance and not drive to Denver.
It's a shame that this is even a problem. Hahn's Peak Roadhouse gives me at least more reason to visit North Routt by having live music. Great reason to go, stay the night and spend some $$$. Hard to believe that a home 1/4 mile away can hear the music if all the doors/windows are shut (either roadhouse and or house). I would think something should be able to be worked out for 2 nights of music and giving people in North Routt something to do on a Friday/Saturday night.
Have to say, I am generally up for changes, the new promenade at the ski area, awesome, really needed it. But, I really like the way Yampa is, a bit weird and quirky. Fancy stuff on Lincoln, quirky on Yampa.
Would really like to see some focus on parking downtown, couple times I have not been able to find a spot, I just went home. There has to be somewhere a parking garage could be slipped in without being too much of an eye sore.
I am sure it's possible that some people here and there fly into YVRA and travel outside of the valley like to WY etc.
I myself flew 130,000 miles last year, ALL of them originating from YVRA. I pretty much spend all of my money that I earn from outside of the valley here in the Yampa Valley.
Continued air service out of HDN is important to me personally, I couldn't live here with out it.
I kind of like Yampa the way it is, uniquely Steamboat quirky.
Exactly right Scott, I make my money outside of the valley (state), and spend almost all of it in this valley. Without broadband and reliable air transportation, I would have to live elsewhere.
Congrats to the Requists.
Interesting points Jeff, I wonder the same, and regardless, I will be chipping in for new helmets.
OTP has a great line up, all of these bands this weekend put on a great show.
Hell, I remember paying $8 to go see a band I had never heard of play at Murphy's and I didn't hesitate. Anywhere else in the country I go to see music I expect a cover charge.
The affordable cover charges comments kill me...let's take Sam Bush for instance...If Sam Bush would play at Red Rocks, all kinds of people would rush to see him play with 4 thousand other people and be glad to pay $45 + for a ticket, never mind driving to Morrison, finding a place to stay etc. But if the Ghost charges $25 and you can see him in a small room with say 300 people and never have to leave town, we locals say the cover charge is outrageous. Really?
Even the FREE concerts are NOT FREE people, they cost money and someone is coughing it up to keep them going. The beer we buy alone doesn't cover the tab for these kinds of acts.
I saw Big Head Todd play the Sheraton ball room years ago and paid $25/tix and many other locals did the same. We didn't have a problem doing it then, but I think anymore we expect music for FREE, and you know what, it's not.
