With a fresh start to the week, I am hoping that the sun dominates the weather patterns here in Steamboat Springs this week taking the place of the rain showers that we have been seeing. The June afternoon rain showers have been absolutely wonderful, especially not that the Yampa Valley is a rich emerald green color. This week is full of great events and activities including the 21st Annual Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup, the Free Family Fun Fest, the opening weekend of the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series and the gondola at the Steamboat Ski Area opening for the summer season. Make sure you check out the events calendar on the Steamboat Chamber website for more information and details.
