There is a lot on the horizon here in Steamboat Springs. With Memorial Day just around the corner and kicking off the summer season there is a lot to look forward too. The 2008 Economic Summit starts today and will continue through tomorrow, addressing transportation issues. The summit this year will focus on “Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Transportation and our Economic Future. If you are interested in attending or learning more please check out this link. The weather today in Steamboat Springs is nothing short of ideal. The aspens are blooming, the sky is blue and the snow on the Steamboat Ski Areas is melting…slowly, but it is melting.

In today’s Steamboat Pilot and Today there was a wonderful column written about Mother Nature and how Steamboat has been responding to the dramatic weather this past year. Local columnist Joanne Palmer really made me laugh with her depiction of the seasons here in Routt County. Please enjoy.
