The podium from the Tour de France! The list of riders coming to Colorado to race the USPCC is already incredible. For a fan of pro road cycling it doesn't get much better than this, thanks!

Eventually the 3 legends(Todd,Johnny and Bill) are going to retire which will be a sad day for us Nordic Combined fans. But if Brett Camerota continues to improve after his stellar performance in Whistler and the Fletchers keep working hard, we'll have plenty to cheer about. Dave Jarrett was a great competitor and he's an even better coach! Good luck to everyone this season especially at Worlds. Oslo is going to be ROWDY!!

tom bedell 4 years, 5 months ago on Disc golf opens at Rita Valentine Park in Steamboat

I think time will tell that this is a very bad move by our parks and rec department. The land involved isn't just the Rita Valentine parcel but also the fox creek parcel which is an area of undeveloped open space rich with wildlife and flowers and fauna not to mention a migratory corridor for deer, elk and moose. A frisbee golf course is going to result in almost every square inch of this habitat getting trampled! Aside from the obvious adverse effects on the environment the course creates safety issues for other users and none of the parking issues have been addressed. When the idea of developing this open space was first proposed it was met with strong opposition. This past May the proposal for a frisbee golf park was submitted and passed by our parks and rec. committee without any of the original groups who opposed development even knowing about it! If you research frisbee golf course design, coursed are almost always built in developed parks. I could not find one example of a frisbee golf course being built in a pristine wildlife habitat. I walked this area on Thursday evening with a DOW wildlife biologist and they were surprised that the course was built so close to fox creek and the surrounding wet lands with so little concern given to environmental impacts. It's been very dissappointing trying to get the city to cease development until more people could be made aware and environmental impact studies could be done. I realize this land belongs to us all and my vision may not be shared by all citizens of Steamboat but I personally am gravely dissappointed by the shortsightedness and lack of concern for the environmentby our city representatives.

Thanks to all who worked to make this happen. I can't wait to check it out. I'm a little confused by the location though. Is the track going to become a permanent fixture in ski time square?
