Ok… the good news first - Champagne Powder® snow is on order along with the usual turkey and trimmings! Steamboat will be serving up a full plate of fun with 5 lifts, approximately 926 acres and 66 trails, including much of its legendary tree-skiing terrain in Shadows and Closet. For just $30, Steamboat will dish out a lift ticket on opening day, Wednesday November 24th, and donate all proceeds to benefit the local youths in the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.
We haven’t seen early season conditions like these since 1996/97 winter. A series of storms have dumped nearly 4-1/2 feet of snow this month and 6 feet of snow since October 23rd at Thunderhead, the resort’s mid-mountain location at 9,080 feet. Steamboat is currently reporting a remarkable 52-inch base at the summit, the largest ever seen for an opening day. And snow will continue to accumulate starting Sunday and lasting till the opening on Wednesday.
Meteorologists are calling for a La Niña weather cycle this winter and Steamboat often does very well during the stronger events. So far so good! Mike at SnowAlarm and I decided to hike to Hurricane this past week to send you a taste of what’s on tap for this winter - powder skiing!
Oh - did I mention that One Steamboat Place is in foreclosure? Lets keep with the good buzz and I’ll write about this debacle later. Or you can check out the news.

Construction season in Steamboat is still humming! Along with the promenade at the base of Steamboat Ski Area, the Spring Creek Trail soon will run uninterrupted from Amethyst Drive to the Old Town Hot Springs after a pedestrian underpass is completed underneath Fish Creek Falls Road. City workers were busy Monday beginning preparation work for the project that they expect to complete by the end of next month. See the full story here.

Low prices and real estate advertised as “bank owned” is drawing increasing attention to Steamboat Springs.
Steamboat Today’s article talks about our foreclosure market. Correcting the paper, Eliese is an owner with Colorado Group Realty, and one of our experts in the Steamboat foreclosure and short sale process.
The desire of those wanting second homes in Steamboat Springs at a significant discount outpaces the interest of real estate investors. We have foreclosures, short sales and distressed sellers, but properties are not exchanging hands at prices where investors looking for rental income can cash-flow a home or condo purchase.
Unlike many other areas in the country, Steamboat Springs perceived value is driving our summer sales. Steamboat is on sale right now, and a strong desire for our lifestyle should force a quick turnaround when other markets begin to recover.
There have several high-dollar foreclosed properties sold in the past few weeks. For the complete report and facts on Steamboat Springs foreclosures and bank owned real estate,call Dean Laird at 877-678-0884.

The city of Steamboat Springs is moving forward on big plans for the future. Completion of the public promenade and utilities is just the tip of the iceberg. New financing looks promising for the Steamboat skiing experience.
New financing plan would not drastically change base area construction plans for the rest of this summer, it would enable completion of the current slate of high-profile redevelopment projects next year. Some final landscaping items could stretch into spring 2012.
says base area redevelopment coordinator Joe Kracum - http://www.steamboat … mboat Today article.

Similar to your cable bill, it seams every year we see a notice of increase for our water and sewer. http://www.steamboat … t-more-explanation/.
Jay with the Mount Werner Water and Sanitation District points out that
The proposed increases in wastewater treatment fees and tap fees will affect not only residents and businesses in the City District, but also those in the Mount Werner Water District, Steamboat II, and Tree Haus.
Big or little government seems to follow the same path. When times are good they don’t take that as a sign it’s time to save for the likelihood of bad days ahead. We can’t look back; its time to plan for our future and this just may be one of those increases we need to live with.
Meanwhile, there is always that idea to conserve water and I’m guessing you won’t see your bill affected as much.
Current owners of Stagecoach real estate near Steamboat Springs, Colorado need to organize and implement a plan.
