Apres ski at Steamboat keeps getting better! I was wondering what all the bustle was outside my office window yesterday and come to find Steamboat Resort tearing into my favorite deck. Favorite, because the Bear River deck provides a birds-eye view of the many free concerts all winter season, the Cowboy Downhill, the fireworks display and Torchlite Parade on New Years Eve, the Cardboard Classic and crazy bathers trying to ski across a pond on closing day.
Drinking beer while taking in the events outside in the winter does have its drawbacks though. Well, it appears Steamboat has come up with a solution for us warm-weather party goers. The deck is being transformed into a new terrace, featuring an umbrella bar which will be a heated and a glass-enclosed facility.
Visitors will be able to take in everything that’s going on outside on the mountain from inside the new terrace.
said Ski Corp. spokeswoman Loryn Kasten in the Steamboat Today
Add to that an outdoor fire pit, a new promenade stretching accross the base of the ski area (completion is scheduled for next winter) and heated sidewalks outside my office door and I’m really looking forward to this leisurely winter lifestyle.
