Breaking the Mold

BREAKING THE MOLD

Steamboat artist and sculptor Sandy Graves transforms metal into levity, motion, and emotion.

Screen Shot 2018-04-05 at 2.07.09 PM

Unlike many artists, who might describe themselves as random and chaotic, Sandy Graves is grounded, logical and sensible, even wise. The process she uses to create her sculptures isn’t so much free form as it is technical, labor intensive and collaborative. Even though she always knew she would eventually work as a professional artist, or maybe because of it, she took her time. She got a degree in fine arts, worked as an art teacher for 16 years, started a family, settled down, established roots, and became grounded.

GREENER PASTURES

Spearheading the green building movement in Steamboat, Sarah Fox shares her sustainable building practices.

Screen Shot 2018-04-05 at 2.00.19 PM

Green building might not be new to Steamboat, but it still has a long way to go. Leading that charge is Sarah Fox, who was born and raised in Steamboat and grew up working for her family business, Fox Construction. She earned her degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University in 2005 and that’s when she became intrigued by green building and construction practices that were more sustainable. “I loved building, but wasn’t keen on the wasteful side. The idea that we could save energy and recycle building materials was exciting,” she says. “It inspired me to want to bring those practices home to our family company.”

Dogs Dig Steamboat

Dogs Dig Steamboat.

Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 3.29.32 PMAnd for the most part Steamboat Digs Dogs! Back in 2013 Dog Fancy magazine nominated Steamboat Springs as “Dog Town USA”. And personally I think it’s a title that suits us.

A Steamboat dog knows how to have fun. And for all you non-locals, we’re going to catch you up on what to do and where to go!

Ahh wet dog smell…

There is no shortage of water in Routt County for swimming in, after all the Yampa River does run right through town, as does Fish Creek, Spring Creek, Soda Creek, Butcherknife Creek, Walton Creek… well you get the drift. But if you are looking for that beach like feeling check out the “D” hole right next to the library (the other side of the bridge). When the river slows after the spring melt it’s the perfect swimming hole for both kids and canines. If you are looking for more of a walk/swim combo check out the lower Spring Creek pond where dogs can run off leash in the field then cool off with a swim.

Steamboat Springs, a Nordic Mecca

March 6th, 2018

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, A NORDIC MECCA

Steamboat’s wide array of cross country ski areas makes it a premiere destination for Nordic skiers.

Screen Shot 2018-03-06 at 8.03.51 PM

Steamboat is known for many things: its famous tree skiing, champagne powder, and western heritage. But what a lot of people might not realize is that Steamboat is fast-becoming one of the best destinations for Nordic skiing in the U.S.

Cross country skiing is nothing new: the Nordic skiing tradition in Steamboat is well over a century old. In case you’re looking for some good dinner conversation, the story goes something like this: When Karl Hovelsen emigrated to the United States from Norway in 1905 and eventually settled in Steamboat in 1913, he brought Nordic skiing with him. Later known as Carl Howelsen, he’s the guy who Howelsen Hill was named after. There, he trained many locals in Nordic skiing and so began one of the most prolific Nordic skiing programs in the United States, with a legacy that continues today.

HOME ON THE RANGE

Steamboat’s holds on tight to its western heritage despite challenges.

Screen Shot 2018-03-06 at 7.57.08 PM

Marsha Daughenbaugh was born and raised in the Elk River Valley on her family’s cattle and hay ranch and is now in the process of turning it over to her daughter and son-in-law, to be passed down to the third and fourth generation in her family.

Steamboat is steeped in its western heritage and has a long history in agriculture, and that heritage is as synonymous with Steamboat Springs as our famous powder and tree skiing. At the same time, rising property values, a higher cost of living, new development and an economy that is primarily sustained by recreation and resort has posed more challenges than ever before for multi-generational ranchers to hold onto their legacies.
