Less than a week until Christmas and Steamboat Springs is a buzz. The downtown shops are full of holiday shoppers, the hotels in town are busy with guests who are here to enjoy the snow and the skiing; and lucky for all of us we will all be able to enjoy the new dusting of snow that Steamboat received morning.

I got a lot of my Christmas shopping done early this week with stops at some of Steamboat’s finest stores. Kitchen gadgets, ski socks, wood trinkets and warm scarves are on my list to give this holiday season. I’ll be going shopping again this evening for the last minute items, the Steamboat specific items that I cannot get anywhere else. In my opinion those are the best gifts to give.

Wishing everyone a happy holiday season from Steamboat Springs!
