I’ll start this blog post off by initially stating that I love my job. There are not many professions where you are allowed to take four hours out of your day to go explore your town, the business that create and sustain it and the revel in the fun that makes where I live, Steamboat Springs, such an awesome place to live, work and play.

And play we did. Let’s just say that today (Friday, July 16th) was just another day in PARADISE. Karl Bunker, owner of Steamboat Lake Marina now in his seventh year, was affectionately named the “Captain of Fun” for the day. He and his team generously hosted three of us Chamber ladies and two gentlemen from the Steamboat Pilot & Today on a lake excursion, showcasing all the activities that are available at Steamboat Lake Marina.

The five of us, plus three members of the Steamboat Lake Marina staff had the opportunity to “test” out the new Master Craft wake board boat which was recently acquired by Karl and his team. Jealous? You’ve got to try this boat out – it is amazing!

What a fun day! I can honestly attest to the fact that the folks up at Steamboat Lake Marina are not only knowledgeable about their business, but they are excellent instructors and really cater this activity to all levels. Our diverse group consisted of folks who had never wake boarded before, to seasoned pros who just needed to dust off their skills, kind of like riding a bike. I was impressed by the professionalism of Karl’s team, but don’t get me wrong, they also know how to have fun, how to show their guests a good time and the fudge they sell is AMAZING! (Trust me, the fudge is epic!)

The water up at Steamboat Lake, just 25 miles north of Steamboat Springs was wonderfully warm; in fact no one in our group wore a wet suite. We all wake boarded, slalom water skied and surfed behind the new “gem” of the marina.

Thanks Steamboat Lake Marina for a fantastic day! To learn more about what Steamboat Lake Marina offers and their pricing visit their website.
