There is always something to do in the Yampa Valley…

In these times, we have never been more fortunate to live in the Yampa Valley where our next adventure lies just outside our front doors. While the mountain may have had to close early, that has not stopped us from getting out and taking advantage of all that Steamboat has to offer. As we head into the off season, town has begun to quiet and the crowds have dispersed and we can’t think of any better way to spend our time than to…

Hit the Core Trail…

Warm, sunny, spring days call for time spent walking, riding, or running along the Core Trail. This 7.5 mile paved trail system follows along the Yampa River and is the perfect place to take in the early sounds and smells of spring.

Enjoy the last bit of snow…

While the days may be getting warmer and longer, there is still plenty of snow on the trails, meaning we are strapping on our snowshoes, cross country gear, AT gear, whatever we can to get outside and take a hike.

From the ski resort, to Emerald Mountain, to Spring Creek, there are a plethora of trails for all of us to spread out and enjoy the remaining bounty from an epic snow year.

Take a drive…

Some days are made perfect by jumping in the car, turning on the tunes, and cruising down county roads with nowhere to be.

We love taking a cruise along the Elk River, through ranch lands to North Routt. This time of year you can drive through Hahn’s Peak Village, through historic Columbine, to where the pavement ends, then turn around and head back to town.

Kick back and relax…

Other days call for taking it easy inside, catching up on TV shows, doing a puzzle, reading a great book, enjoying a slower pace of life for a change. Better yet why not make a summer bucket list of all the adventures and experiences you and your family want to do this summer.
