Dressed to the nines, YPN members hit the lanes at Snow Bowl for a night of strikes, spares, splits and yes, a few gutter balls.  The Fresh Air Committee (dedicated to organizing monthly recreational, arts, and cultural activities) organized a bowling night for all YPN members to come celebrate the Holiday season in true style, and did they ever!  What better way to get to know fellow YPN members than discussing the intricacies of a hand knit bear sweater with custom maple leaf buttons or busting out a famous dance move after a strike.  It was a great evening filled with fun, laughter and Holiday spirit.

The Young Professionals Network of Steamboat Springs is a great organization to be involved with.  Aside from dressing in Holiday garb and bowling the night away, there are ample opportunities to become involved whatever ones interests may be.  YPN offers its members professional skill workshops, coffee chats, philanthropic opportunities, and monthly events with guest speakers, just to name a few.  This is all put together to connect young professionals to one another, foster partnerships with and among the community, and to motivate personal and professional development.
