With several feet of snow in the hill, Steamboat Springs, Colorado, aka: Ski Town USA is about to go under water. Depending on the temperatures, the snow on the mountains is now filling the rivers around Steamboat Springs.

This board walk is usually about 4-5 feet off the ground.

Steamboat Springs — High waters continued to flow from rivers, creeks and streams in and around Steamboat Springs, Colorado on Sunday as the record snowpack continues to melt, and a flood warning remains in effect for much of Routt County until 9 a.m. Tuesday. Our fingers are crossed.

And then there’s a big delay in catching fish. That’s too is not good. See article about the fishing concerns here.
