Snow, Snow, Snow


The first day we arrived there was only a few inches. It started snowing on December 14, 2012 and it hasn't stopped since. The conditions have been so good that they opened 2 more lifts and several runs. When we spoke to one of the Ambassadors they said that by Monday December 17, 2012 they should be opening the Sunshine Lift and maybe even Morningside. This video was taken at Slopeside Grill. As you can see it was snowing profusely. 

It's Been a While!

We have been busy preparing for the season. We are completing our first trip of the season and thought we should share some pictures.

This is the view out the back door. If you look closely you will notice it is snowing. Since we have been here we have gotten over 20" of snow.

We replaced the sofa with a brand new queen sleeper sofa. For added seating comfort, we added a leather love seat.

The living room is very spacious offering plenty of room to move around and still comfortable seating for everyone to enjoy.

Pool and Hot Tubs are heated yearound

The pool area is located just outside our patio door. It's close to walk to but the barrier wall keeps the noise away. The pool and hot tubs are heated during the summer and the winter so its always a refreshing trip.

Now for a few of the inside

Today we are going to feature the the inside of the Condo. we are going to start with the Dining Room.

A little of the Dining Room, Kitchen and Living Room. Our Condo is fully equiped and has lots of space.

The Dining Room table seats 6 and the kitchen bar seats an additional 3.

Since we have been a frequent visitor to The Rockies for several years we thought of all the things that we had (or didn't have) at other units we have stayed in and covered everything!

Exterior Photos

Since we just got back from Steamboat and we have renovated the Condo we thought we should show off a few pictures of the new place. Let's start with a few pictures of the exterior.

The best picture showing the complex from Rockies Way.

This one is from the top of the hill. The center section is the entrance to the pool and our unit. Our unit is on the ground floor and only 10 stairs from the parking lot level.

This is a view of Emerald Mountian taken from the pool. It is also the view from our patio, living room, guest bedroom and Master Bedroom.

Throughout the next few weeks we will post various pictures of the Condo and all the upgrades we have made.

More of what to do when you get here.

Another all-encompassing source of activities is located at Saddleback Ranch. During the summer season they offer; Horseback Riding, Cattle Driving, ATV Riding and Wagon Dinner Rides. In the winter they offer; a great Tubing Hill, Dinner Sleigh Rides, Horseback Riding and Snowmobile Tours. They are located about half way between town and the airport but they have a great shuttle system that gets you there and back. For more information visit them at

Travel Tip 4 - What to do when you get here?

What to do when you get to Steamboat?

We will have to spread this topic over several blogs. The most obvious divide is summer versus winter. Since we still have a couple of months of summer left lets start with the Summer Activities.

The most obvious source of activities in Steamboat will allways be Steamboat Resorts. As with the winter activities, the Steamboat Resort offers many summer thrills.


Gondola Rides

Hot Air Balloons

Alpine Slide

Horse Back Riding

Mountain Biking

These are just a few of the activities they offer. Steamboat Resorts web site is a great place to start.

Hot Springs

Steamboat enjoys the benefit of two beautiful but drastically different Hot Springs. Pictured above is Old Town Hot Springs. Located at 136 Lincoln Ave, Old Town has it's own stop on SST Bus Route. Old Town has two outdoor hot spring mineral pools, two Water Slides for the kids, a 25 yard lap pool and a fitness center. For more info check out their website at

For a totally different experience, you should consider Strawberry Park Hot Springs. Strawberry Park is about a 30 minute ride out of town but you will need to schedule a shuttle to get there. During the winter season you will need a four wheel drive vehicle or a two wheel drive vehicle with chains. Strawberry Park is very secluded and offers several pools of varying temperature. If you go at night you will need to bring a flashlight. The views are incredible, the stars look like they are so close you can reach out and touch them. For more info check out their website at
