This has been a question on my mind for a long time. Unfortunately I did not have a great resource for accessing this information until a very good friend of mine invited me to a special presentation by Randy Rowe , President of Green Courte Partners. Mr. Rowe’s presentation to a select group of the Steamboat Springs real estate community was focused on what current economic indicators were telling us vs. the opinions. During this presentation, the main question swirling in my mind was, “If the United States is about to enter an inflationary environment, leading to higher asset values, further leading to higher interest rates, what is the long term effect on residential real estate prices?” Fortunately, Mr. Rowe had access to this data and…

When Paul Ralston and Mariana Ishida host the first dinner party in their new home in Heritage Park this year, Ralston is sure to guide his guests to the utility room to show them his pride and joy: an exceptionally efficient boiler.
The married couple purchased a building site in Heritage Park that overlooked open ranch land more than two years ago. However, they temporarily put the building on hold as the Steamboat Springs real estate market overheated and construction prices went up. They didn't revisit the possibility of building a custom home until early in summer 2009. When they did, they were pleasantly surprised. What they got from the building contractor Jamie Letson, of Letson Enterprises, was an efficient home that was completed within six…

Colorado's newest gondola opened to the public yesterday morning. The new Wildhorse lift is just down the hill from the slopes of the Steamboat Ski Area.
The ride lasts 3 minutes and 30 seconds, and crosses traffic on Mount Werner Circle before descending steeply into the upper terminal at One Steamboat Place.
The new Leitner-Poma fixed-grip gondola, built in Grand Junction (western Colorado) is a first for Steamboat Springs. Sometimes referred to as a people-mover lift, it doesn't deliver passengers to the top of a ski run, but instead to the bottom of the runs at Steamboat Ski Area. From there, people who carried skis or snowboards onto the gondola likely will catch either the Steamboat Gondola or the Christie Peak Express.
The $3 million-plus…

Ken Carlson has spent the bulk of his life working toward a singular goal: being a wildlife painter.
"It's all I've ever done. It's been my goal in life to paint wildlife. I did a lot of commercial work, but always with one goal, and that was to become an animal painter," Carlson said.
Carlson's work is featured at Steamboat Art Museum through the winter. The exhibition is a showcase of years of research into seeking the perfectly lot landscape, learning to depict animals of all kinds and finding the right way to match those skills, Carlson said.
Carlson places his North American wildlife into slightly abstracted landscapes, making the animals pop out of the painting with deep layers of paint and texture.
All paintings on display are from…

The Atira Group will present its Ski Time Square development plan - a proposal that includes five buildings with about 200 residential units and seven commercial spaces near the base of the ski area - along with an apparent resolution of issues with the Ski Time Square Association.
Those issues with the nearby condo association were one reason the Steamboat Springs City Council tabled the development plan in October. Another reason was to allow more time for discussion of interim plans for the 4.6 - acre site, for which Atira has requested a grace period of 10 years before pulling a building permit. Heading into tonight's City Council meeting, progress appears to have been made on both reasons for the delay.
Atira is redeveloping Ski Time Square and…
