Location-Neutral Workers Impact on Steamboat Springs Economy

Posted by on Jun 6, 2017 in Homes and Realty, Sponsors | 0 comments

In just about any Colorado mountain town you’ll hear “location-neutral” as the primary buzzword when it comes to employment and workforce. It seems that more and more people are leaving the bright lights of the big city in favor of the lifestyle that comes with living in the Rockies. In Steamboat Springs, the portion of the local workforce that could choose to work from anywhere and has decided to call Steamboat home accounts for over 10% of labor. Yampa Valley Data Partners, an independent research group, reports that approximately 1,600 workers hold jobs considered location-neutral. This population contributes nearly $54 million annual income which is more than the aggregate...

5Point Adventure Festival’s Lasting Impression

Posted by on Jun 6, 2017 in Arts, MTN Life | 0 comments

You will always remember the first time you attend the 5Point Adventure Festival in Carbondale, Colorado. It’s an event that bring together a worldwide network of adventure lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, athletes and filmmakers, propelling the non-profit’s mission to ignite personal and communal adventure of all kinds through the experience of sharing meaningful stories. While 5Point celebrated it’s 10th anniversary this past April, I experienced my first time at the festival. The event has grown increasingly popular over the last decade — so much so that most showings sell out. From Thursday night through Sunday, I was hooked. As seats filled and the lights went down, the town’s community center transformed...

Mountain Parents: Remember 5-2-1-0 this summer

Posted by on May 31, 2017 in Family, Wellness & Yoga | 0 comments

School’s out for summer! That’s the excited refrain many mountain kids are singing right now. No more homework, no waking up early; it’s all about fun. But what about exercise?  Mountain Parents: Remember 5-2-1-0 this summer. During the school year, most children have hours in the school day dedicated to PE or time on the playground. Fewer hours of organized physical activity are available in the summer months, however, which places many children at risk for gaining weight. We’ve gotten used to referring to Colorado as one of – if not the – healthiest state in the country. And while that may be true for Colorado adults, our kids are...

Great(er) Grand Junction

Posted by on Apr 20, 2017 in MTN Town Magazine, Treks & Travels | 0 comments

Story by Kristen Lummis   It’s a hot summer day in Colorado’s Grand Valley and great(er) Grand Junction.   With the mercury pushing 90, I’ve found a cool respite on a shady, breezy patio. Hummingbirds flit amongst flowers and bountiful clouds fill the sky.   I’m biting into an organic peach the size of a grapefruit, trying not to spill a single drop of heavenly nectar, despite the fact it’s running down my fingers to my wrists.   As I savor this peach, just one of the many local delights we’ll eat this summer, I’m pretty sure I live in the center of the universe.    My brother and...

Please be warned, the taco you are about to experience is addicting, and you will want more, and you will plan your trip around the ability to get in on time to have one, two or five of these gnar’licious menu selections at Taco Del Gnar. I was on my way with a friend to The Ride Festival this past summer when, on our final ascent to Telluride, my friend Ali announced in Ridgway that we MUST stop for a Taco. I had grabbed a quick bite in Gunnison and was still a bit full but she said that I had to have at least one taco, I would...
