The Magic of Fall in Steamboat Springs, Colorado

B ski

Spectacular landscapes and crisp fresh air, possibly the most magical time of the year!

Fabulous color can be found throughout Routt County at the moment, and is there a better place to enjoy it than from the sanctuary of your own home? Well, certainly not if you are the owner of 2890 Bucks Path in Elkins Meadow. This 7,400+ custom home is nestled in the mountains, mere minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs. Take a glimpse of fall from a new perspective:

Whether inside the home or out, the varying hues of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, pink, magenta, blue and brown makes a dramatic statement. To put it simply, it’s breathtaking.

The current owners describe the neighborhood and environment surrounding their home as national park-esque…  and we can certainly see why.

The leaves are gradually turning and the nights have been getting cold. The veggie patch is done for the summer and the ice scraper was put back in the car this morning (after being used!). For many of us fall is the most gorgeous time of the year, but snow will falling soon and for homeowners it is important to get your home ready for the cold winter season.

Here are some tips to help prepare your home for winter:

  •  Lawn, Garden & Deck
    • Mow grasses short and fertilize lawn prior to snowfall (assists spring growth plus can reduce rodent damage in winter)
    • Put away outdoor cushions, furniture & toys
    • Drain & winterize outdoor faucets & irrigation systems
    • Drain & put away hoses
    • Trim branches that hang over house or near home
