Mom taught me to ski Steamboat when I was about 2 and while on the slopes, she was asked to do a photoshoot for Steamboat Resort and Life Magazine. This photo is from a 1972 Ski Map. She is gone now due to cancer, but in honor of Mom, I work to stay true to why she moved here in the 1st place...enjoy the Steamboat lifestyle.
