What do you call a snowboarder in a suit....the defendant.
What do you call a snowboarder that breaks up with his girlfriend...homeless
All jokes aside, courtesy on the slopes is definitely lacking during peak times. I like Scott's suggestions for cameras.
Looks like a little action at the Old Town Pub...
I think the bigger question is are the major ski resorts pricing themselves out of the family vacation market? You get to $1000 per day pretty quick for a family of 4.
She must be from Idaho!
Seems lot of cities collect the taxes. I use VRBO all over the world....most seem to be collecting the tax. My rental manager in RI collects the local city taxes and provides me with a w-9 at the end of the year. Not like Steamboat re-inventing the wheel. Can't say I like the tax....but it happens.
Maximizing their investment....the sense of entitlement we have in our community is surprising given our ranching heritage. If you can't afford housing because you do not make enough money, move to where your skills are more valuable, or develop skills that our local economy will value. Life's tough many of us left our birthplace to build a better life, just something you do as a productive adult. This sense of entitlement also applies to our local businesses. When they lose the labor pool that lives here 4 to a room maybe they will start paying a livable wage.
Taxing and redistributing isn't the answer. Worker shortages resulting in higher wages might help. Otherwise do what the vast majority of Americans do, move to regions that pay a living wage. While I love seeing young families in Steamboat, if we as a community are not willing to pay for their services thru higher wages, I don't think we need an inefficient government agency to do it for us thru taxes.
Justifying the purchases of the drug dogs.
Chet, you are correct...people get their barns mixed up around here.
One of the better crime reports :)
