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.

GOLD RUSH – FALL FOLIAGE, THROUGH THE LENS OF A PRO

Gold Rush – Capturing the Beauty of Steamboat’s Fall Foliage

Fall in Steamboat is as beautiful as it is fleeting, which is why we want so desperately to be able to capture the moment with a photograph. How many times have you tried with your smart phone camera and felt like the image didn’t do it justice? We turned to Corey Kopischke, a professional photographer who has spent most of his life chasing light and seizing the moment one frame at a time for some tips.

Screen Shot 2017-10-09 at 12.48.02 PM

A former freestyle skier, he learned a lot about photography from working as an athlete in numerous photoshoots over the years. Kopischke was never formally trained in photography, but learned firsthand how it was done in the field. “I would bring my camera and shoot over the photographer’s shoulder,” he says. After living in Steamboat for 28 years and working for Steamboat magazine as a senior staff photographer and part time photo editor, he has logged in a lot of days shooting fall colors.

Getting Your Ski Legs Back – The Importance of Ski Conditioning and When to Begin… Right Now

Screen Shot 2017-10-06 at 10.37.33 AM

Skiing and snowboarding are not only fun, exhilarating ways to get some fresh air, and to spend some time with friends and family in our beautiful Rocky Mountains. They are also physically demanding activities. That’s why it’s so important to be proactive, not reactive, and to prepare for the upcoming season with a good ski conditioning regimen, says Emily Harris, Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Steamboat Spine & Sports Physical Therapy. No one knows how much strain skiing and snowboarding can put on our bodies like physical therapists. They’re the ones who deal with all the injuries that can result from imbalances and weaknesses in the body.

“Even if you’re already in great shape from trail running or mountain biking, skiing and riding on the mountain is going to test your body in different ways. If you’re not ready, you are more likely to sustain an injury. So, preparing your body for it is crucial,” Harris says. “It’s important to start training a couple months out.” With the recent snowfall in the Yampa Valley, that time is now.

Taking “Farm to Table” Behind the Bar

Friday, September 8th, 2017

TAKING “FARM TO TABLE” BEHIND THE BAR

Bolstered by the farm-to-table movement, craft cocktails give mixed drinks a major upgrade.

Screen Shot 2017-09-08 at 3.55.28 PM

Bourbon and duck fat? Egg whites and edible flowers?

Believe it or not, these are the ingredients featured in some of Steamboat’s finest craft cocktails, as bar menus around town are seeing the same farm-to-table concept that has been influencing chef’s menus, only applied behind the bar.

“It’s almost like you’re a chef, but for drinks,’ says Rena Day, Cocktail Curator at Low Country Kitchen in downtown Steamboat. “Each drink should hit on bitter, sweet, salty, and sour, just like a well-balanced dish.”
