The definitive source for Steamboat Springs winter activities and entertainment has arrived along with a huge dump of the season’s first beautiful champagne powder! You can find the official winter 2010/11 Steamboat Springs Visitors’ Guide at the Chamber Visitors’ Center, in racks all over town, or bound into the brand-new holiday issue of Steamboat Magazine. On the cover, look out for local skier Kerry Lofy launching off the Chute One rock on the Steamboat Ski Area. Photographer Aryeh Copa caught not only a huge mid-air shot but an amazing view over the Yampa Valley. Inside, the VG features tips about everything from hot springs to historic walking tours, free fun to winter festivals, skiing with local Olympians to backcountry snowshoe, snowmobile and sleigh adventures – and more. The Visitors’ Guide also includes Steamboat’s most complete calendar of events for winter: Keep track of Steamboat’s art scene and cultural events; get the inside scoop on the 98th Winter Carnival; and make sure you never miss a ski race (where future Olympians regularly abound). Last but not least, oft-photographed Steamboat local Cathy Wiedemer offers up a hearty welcome, some insider scoop, and tons of great ideas for how to go home with your best ski photos ever. Welcome to the ’boat! Don’t forget to consult the Steamboat Springs Visitors’ Guide to inspire all your Yampa Valley adventures and fun to come. It’s The Source.
