public restrooms – long identified as a need by visitors and locals alike. “People are going to be amazed when they see the finished project,” Duckels says. “It’s a ‘gold star’ project, filled with intricate details, and it’s something our town can really use.” – Deborah Olsen

Focus on the River

The grand staircase is a highlight of the new base area promenade.

Boosting the Base Beautification and redevelopment continue around ski area base A creek with waterfalls, a rock sculpture symbolizing the geologic history of Routt County and the Grand Staircase are among the highlights of the new promenade at the base of the Steamboat Ski Area. A heated walkway invites pedestrians to meander from Torian Plum at the north end of the base to One Steamboat Place on the south, with lights and signage guiding the way. In summer, Burgess Creek will be diverted from its underground culvert into a manmade streambed, complete with ponds, waterfalls and other features, running alongside the promenade. In the fifth summer of this multi-year project, the promenade and creek bed began to take shape. Previously, much of the work had focused on infrastructure, but the payoff was big in summer 2011, when passersby began to see the magnitude of the project. What has been described at best as a confusing mishmash and at worst as an eyesore, the Steamboat Ski Area base is transitioning from a 40-year-old hodgepodge to a masterpiece of landscape architecture, hydrology and design. Funded by the Steamboat Springs Redevelopment

Authority, the project has employed approximately 200 workers for five tough economic years. “It’s a huge project to be doing in a downturn. It has created jobs for local companies,” says city engineer Janet Hruby. Steamboat native Derek Duckels of Duckels Construction has been in charge of the project throughout its five-year build-out. “It’s a very important personal project for me,” he says. “And now to see the culmination – this is the vision. I take a lot of pride in building something my kids are going to enjoy, in knowing you are contributing a little something to the place you grew up.” Depending on weather, Duckels hopes the project will be substantially complete by ski season 2011/12, with little remaining for summer 2012 other than landscaping and perhaps a small section of creek bed. Nearby landowners are dovetailing with the public project to make improvements to their own property. Torian Plum repaired its underground parking lot, and Thunderhead Lodge installed a new roof. The Ski Corp. installed heated pavers in Gondola Square and is building a permanent stage near the gondola terminal building. The structure will also feature

The community prepares to re-imagine Yampa Street In the ongoing evolution of Steamboat Springs’ reinvigorated downtown vibe, Yampa Street is up next for improvements. Tyler Gibbs, the city’s director of planning and community development, says the community can expect opportunities for input during the coming year. “There seems to be a lot of energy and support focused on Yampa Street, from Bike Town USA to MainStreet. Everyone is talking about Yampa’s potential to be a great street for events and linkage for bicyclists through town to Emerald Mountain and other trails,” Gibbs says. “The river is such an amenity…and it hasn’t been fully explored by a long shot. There are so many properties that are poised for development or redevelopment all along there.” Yampa Street has been recommended as an arts and entertainment district among other things, and everyone’s ideas will likely come to the table during visioning sessions. To start the effort, there is early talk of the Farmers’ Market moving to Yampa Street in 2012. Ultimately, Yampa Street will need street lamps, infrastructure, trash containers, banners – all the fixtures that would make a street feel conducive to pedestrian access. While design standards for improving the streetscape were commissioned during the construction boom a few years ago, Gibbs says he looks forward to actually seeing what the street will look like as more development occurs, ideally including more residential units at a variety of price points. “This is going to take money and time,” says Tracy Barnett, executive director of MainStreet Steamboat. “Yampa will need all the things that make it feel more like a festival street, more inviting. Instead of turning our backs to the river the way we always have, now we’re realizing that the water is really our best thing.” – Jennie Lay 5

Business Briefs A Two-Wheel Fortune Deborah Olsen

Growing the ultimate biking destination With more than 500 miles of single track, Steamboat Springs is already a bike town. Now Steamboat’s biking community, together with the city and Routt County, is taking this pastime to a new level. Steamboat aspires to become Bike Town USA as well as Ski Town USA. The citizen-led Bike Town USA initiative encompasses community enhancement, bike safety and economic benefits through cycling. As of June 2011, the city had pumped more than $2.1 million into the effort over the preceding year. Project coordinator Lane Malone says Steamboat has all the prerequisites to succeed in this undertaking. “We already have tremendous cycling assets. Trails, pathways, a wide-open valley to bike around and two major high-end bike manufacturers. We have a great base to get started with.” If Steamboat were to become wellknown as a biking destination, that could mean an increase in visitors, tax dollars and new jobs. Committee member Rich Lowe says that in 15 years, Steamboat might get up to 180,000 bikers visiting town each year. “According to studies, they would spend an average of $113 a day and stay in town for four nights. With those numbers, we can expect to see an $81 million revenue (spike) in the marketplace, and that can create about 750 new jobs,” he says. “Biking can do for Steamboat and Colorado what skiing has done for many years,” Malone says. “One of our goals is to create a long-range plan to develop cycling tourism to a level where economic activity during non-ski season months complements ski season economic activity.” – Heidi Hendersson

cam and hand in assignments via Google Documents. Soon they will even be able to get notes from an interactive whiteboard. This innovative thinking grew as a way to resolve the difficult travel schedules facing student athletes and foreign travelers at the school. Half of the students attending Lowell Whiteman are competitive skiers who are away for weeks or months at a time. For the traveling students, keeping up the school work has not always been an easy task.

Lowell Whiteman School creates a global classroom Step into the virtual classroom at Lowell Whiteman School. Chances are you’ll be joined by future Olympians at ski areas all over the world, surfing the educational wave and keeping up with their peers back on campus in Steamboat Springs. Since October 2010, LWS high school students have had the opportunity to watch lectures online, attend classes via web6

“It’s difficult to leave school for that long of a period. This online system is absolutely necessary. It lightens the burden for both students and teachers,” says Andy Pratt, the school’s former technology director who set up the virtual classroom. Using Lifesize hardware, Pratt set up high-definition cameras in two classrooms. The cameras hook up to a computer that compresses sound and video and transfers data to an online server. “Students that are traveling can go Steamboat Springs On The Move 2011/12

online, view the lectures and keep up with the other students. Sometimes they even get more out of it, since they can rewind and look at it again. It works like a YouTube video,” Pratt says. He sees the virtual classroom is the future of education – although he emphasizes the importance of balancing that with face time in school. “Our goal is not to eliminate people coming here. This is just an attempt to provide more services for the students, not replacing teachers and the school itself,” Pratt says. “There are certain things you just can’t get over the Internet.” – Heidi Hendersson

Yampa Valley Partners foresees local recovery In a mid-2011 forecast for the regional economy, Yampa Valley Partners says “economic recovery is taking root.” The nonprofit regional data collection and collaboration organization reports that gross retail sales are “showing an optimistic 4 to almost 7% increase over last year.” In addition, median real estate listing prices have decreased, raising the affordability factor. While new home construction remains stalled, the report says remodels and renovations continue to be the main focus for the construction trade. And they report that the regional unemployment stress indicator “is showing improvement” – with expectations that job availability and employment numbers will rebound as a result. Health care remains a “strong economic driver,” according to the report: “Healthcare is a big and booming business in the Yampa Valley. Based on employment and income statistics….the healthcare/social assistance industry sector in the Yampa Valley is among the fastest growing industry sectors over the past 10 years, increasing at a rate faster than the balance of the economy.” Daily consumer spending in 2011 continues on par with 2010, however April and May of 2011 showed a spike. “The forecast for the economic stress indicator is continued improvement albeit at a very slow pace,” Yampa Valley Partners

Assessing Our Quality of Life Routt County’s Livability Index reports in for 2010 The Routt County Livability Index began in 2008 as a way to provide factbased data for the community to make more informed choices. It stemmed from hundreds of hours of input and analysis as to what our community values most – and ultimately it serves as a tool to measure change over time, looking at economics, civics, social and environmental factors. Convened by the Routt County Economic Development Cooperative, the study’s data sets come from public sources, and conclusions are designed to be updated to quantify community-wide quality of life from year to year. Routt County is among a handful of progressiveminded communities in the country that have adopted this process of measuring its health – breaking away from the onedimensional self-assessment tool of sales tax to reflect the true complexity of the community. Routt County’s 2010 measurement of “Livability” declined 2.3% since the baseline was established in 2008, reflecting its largest decline in the areas of satisfaction with the economy (undoubtedly a reflection of the current national economic recession). In contrast, the social livability index has seen improvement. Routt County now ranks second in livability as compared to other Colorado resort-

centered communities in Summit, Eagle, Gunnison, Pitkin, Grand and San Miguel counties. – Jennie Lay Review the full report at

Entrepreneurial Resources in the Yampa Valley Advice from the Small Business Center More than 90 percent of businesses operating in the Yampa Valley qualify as small businesses. Typically, entrepreneurs needed a little help when starting up. Whether moving a business here, purchasing an existing one or starting a new venture, the Yampa Valley has a variety of valuable resources readily available. The Colorado Mountain College Small Business Resource Center provides seminars for entrepreneurs and small-business owners and managers. Located in the Bogue Enterprise Center at CMC, the SBRC is an incubator for start-up businesses and offers resources and programs to manage the challenges of entrepreneurship. The local office offers five pieces of advice to aspiring Steamboat Springs entrepreneurs. 1. Need help creating a business plan, building a budget or creating marketing strategies? Yampa Valley SCORE, a volunteer arm of the government’s Small Business Administration, offers experienced business counselors in Steamboat 8

and surrounding areas. This service is free and confidential, and is hosted in the SBRC. 2. Earn an associate’s degree or certificate in entrepreneurship at CMC. The curriculum services those who wish to learn the formal steps of running their own business – and learning now often means fewer mistakes later. 3. Joining the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association is a productive way to learn about the Steamboat community. Business leads, vendors and professional service providers are among the relationships a small business needs to thrive in Steamboat. Chamber programs and events help expand those networks. 4. Consult a local commercial Realtor who understands the nature of renting property for office or retail space. 5. Interview bankers, insurance brokers, CPAs, Internet-service providers and web developers to find a professional who has the particular small-business experience you need. Learn from others and build a solid network of contacts as you go.

Tom Kern Leading the Chamber Tom Kern is the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s new executive vice president. He follows in the footsteps of 25-year Chamber veteran Sandy Evans Hall, who left for a similar post in California. “I’ve been coming to Steamboat since 1973,” Kern says, recalling days when a ski lift ticket cost a mere $8. But the changes he has witnessed since then have never detracted from Steamboat’s local charm or a feeling of authenticity, he says. “Steamboat has never really changed who it is. It may have grown, but it never changed the character of the community or the people.” That’s admirable, Kern says. And he looks forward to living and working in the place he’s enjoyed as a frequent visitor over nearly four decades. “My wife and I have visited every major ski resort in

tion and waste minimization. In addition, businesses are encouraged to implement re-use techniques, resource conservation and improve overall building designs. With a few small steps, Steamboat is working together to leave Mother Earth in as good or better shape for future generations. For example, when it came time to give the front of BAP! a make-over, employees opted for a vegetable garden instead of perennials. ResortQuest Steamboat has reduced paper waste by using USB flash drives for daily reports instead of printing them each day. PostNet owner Kathy Stokes took her local sustainable business practices to headquarters to encourage sustainability in worldwide outlets via a green task force. Black Tie Ski Rentals and SmartWool offer incentives to employees who carpool or use alternative transportation to commute. There is no requirement to join, as the Sustainable Business Program is customized to meet each business’ goals. For more information, call the Chamber at (970) 879-0880. – Kyleigh DeMicco

North American and Steamboat Springs is the best one of them all,” he says. Kern hails from Lawrence, Kansas, and brings to Steamboat years of experience from various Chambers around the country. Since 2008, Kern has been the chief executive officer of the 950-member Lawrence Chamber of Commerce. In Lawrence, Kern worked extensively in economic development and government affairs. Prior to that, Kern served as chief operating officer at the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce in Vienna, Virg., executive vice president of the Greater Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, and executive director of the National Cherry Festival in the resort community of Traverse City, Mich., Of particular interest to the Steamboat Chamber’s busy event planners, the eight-day cherry festival that Kern headed up averages 600,000 in attendance and has an economic impact of approximately $15 million each year. “Events are a strong motivator for our summer visitors and Tom’s experience with large scale event planning will help us capitalize on that,” says Kara Givnish, the Chamber’s special events and sponsorship coordinator. “I think he will help us grow the great events we have and introduce a few new events to add to the summer lineup.” Kern says he’s encouraged by Steamboat’s strong interest in biking events and the promotion of a year-round, healthy, active lifestyle. He’s looking forward to lots more of that focus as he makes the transition to Steamboat life with his wife and two golden retrievers. “It’s a great tradition,” he says. – Jennie Lay Steamboat Springs On The Move 2011/12

Straight Talk Three Steamboat locals talk about work, play and making a difference

Q & A by Jennie Lay Photography by Corey Kopischke


Steamboat Springs On The Move 2011/12

Between the stunning surroundings and a bounty of recreational opportunities, Steamboat Springs ranks as unquestionably idyllic. But ultimately it’s the people who create the stellar magic in this remote rural town. Big things are afoot in this small place, where we are as globally

Dave Nagel

connected as anyone. Hone some insight from three locals who are thriving as parents, professionals, entrepreneurs and dedicated volunteers. Together, their thoughts and inspirations offer a glimpse of what makes Steamboat, and the world, a better place.

Steamboat’s Business Person of the Year

Dave Nagel, 42, moved to Steamboat Springs 11 years ago. His first job here was as a lift operator at the ski area. Now he’s married, has two kids and is raising hundreds of thousands of dollars locally via the Ride 4 Yellow and Ski 4 Yellow cancer-awareness events. He is also a business, real estate and commercial litigation attorney at the helm of the bustling practice of Feldmann Nagel, LLC. “We have been called the TIC of law firms in Steamboat,” he says, referencing the international construction company that got its start in the Yampa Valley. “We have grown to now having offices in Vail, Denver, Austin, Providence and San Diego, primarily due to our military law practice area. We plan to include an international office on that basis as well. Denver has become our flagship office due to its central location…however, Steamboat will always be our headquarters.” As for his preference between two distinctly different ends of Steamboat professional spectrum? “Both of them have been pretty sweet,” Nagel says. “I’ll be one of those guys where people are saying, ‘When is that old dude going to retire?’ I plan to continue to live the lifestyle that has made me and my family successful in Steamboat.”

On The Move: What compelled you to start your business here? Dave Nagel: After law school, like many of us in Steamboat, I took the leap of faith of leaving a big city job for lifestyle, recreation and family-based reasons. OTM: Got any advice for someone trying to start a business in Steamboat? D.N.: Hustle. I also believe you need to get involved at the charitable and probono level to support the community. OTM: What are the biggest day-to-day issues facing running your business in Steamboat? D.N.: Day-to-day we’re pretty solid. Like many firms, we tightened up expenses and looked to expand service lines. Locally, our real estate and construction law

tice has taken a hit like everyone else in those industries. By increasing our presence and outreach in larger metropolitan areas like Denver and Austin, we’ve been able to increase business opportunities. OTM: What spurred you to start Ride 4 Yellow, then Ski 4 Yellow, in Steamboat? D.N.: My family turned to Livestrong six years ago when my sister-in-law was diagnosed with cancer. My brother and I have fundraised in her survivorship honor since then, and we both wore out our family and friends with donation requests over the years. So we decided to go bigger. A major emphasis of the event was to have a local impact, and to keep dollars in the valley. We had the benefit of the “Lance effect” in our first year, which put us on the map. Ski 4 Yellow was an awesome follow-up to keep it fresh and to tap into our homegrown ski Olympians, ski heritage and the ski industry. OTM: What have they brought us? D.N.: This past March we granted $100,000 locally and created an endowment of $30,000. We granted another $130,000 to Livestrong at the global level. OTM: Got any other pet volunteer projects around town? D.N.: I’ve been involved in the Yampa Valley Community Foundation and the Chamber and I like their missions and direction. I’m also a commissioner on the Urban Renewal Authority and look forward to the unveiling of the new base area. OTM: Ski or snowboard? D.N.: Snowboard. My first board was a vintage Burton air. It’s been donated to Powder Pursuits and is hanging up there. OTM: Mountain bike or road bike? D.N.: Mountain bike. I love the single track. OTM: Backpack or car camp? D.N.: Backpacking is tip-top. The Zirkels are one of my favorites. OTM: What’s the best perk you can offer an employee in Steamboat? D.N.: The powder day clause! OTM: What would you like to do to make your business more green or sustainable?

D.N.: We’re involved in the Chamber’s sustainability program. We look to cut natural resources by recycling and making our building energy-efficient. OTM: Got a favorite advice book? D.N.: “Blink,” by Malcolm Gladwell. The premise is that you know in a blink of an eye the correct decision to make for yourself in any given situation. The challenge is to consciously capture your gut instinct as it occurs. OTM: Favorite local amenity? D.N.: Steamboat Ski Area and Howelsen Hill. OTM: Looking at Steamboat’s changes, what gives you hope and what worries you? D.N.: Steamboat will rebound and has. We see positive indicators in the business realm, and the city has done a good job managing finances and making investments for economic growth. The name of the game is sustainability over the short term. One issue that we have to continue to improve upon is our airport service. OTM: What is lacking in terms of infrastructure that would aid your business? D.N.: We are a technology-dependent industry which provides a great upside in that we have the ability to interconnect with clients and our offices with location “neutrality.” Our biggest resource need locally: qualified paralegal support. OTM: How important is the local ski industry to your business? D.N.: It’s huge. It is the backbone of the community. The history, ranching, people and Western spirit are our soul. OTM: What’s the hardest part of doing business in a resort community? D.N.: When you’re a lawyer in a small resort community, you generally represent half of the people in town, which means the other half are on the other side of the table. OTM: The easiest part? D.N.: Business is business anywhere… but its more enjoyable conducting an informal deposition on a chairlift vs. in a boardroom. 23

Sarah Jones

Zero Waste Warrior

Sarah Jones and family enjoy a sunny day ride along the Yampa River Core Trail.



While Sam has his own investment management firm and works remotely with his office in Denver, Sarah has quickly embedded herself as a Steamboat volunteer extraordinaire.

On The Move: Tell us about your decision to move to Steamboat. Sarah Jones: We moved to Steamboat from Denver. My husband, Sam, and I have wanted to move to Steamboat for a really long time. It took us 20 years. OTM: Biggest challenge to moving here? S.J.: Starting our kids in a new school. OTM: Easiest part of settling in here? S.J.: Finding my way around town. OTM: Any advice for someone who is thinking about moving here? S.J.: Make sure you are OK with snow and cold. OTM: First job? S.J.: Camp counselor with the Boys and Girls Club in Concord, N.H. OTM: Favorite job? S.J.: Research assistant in graduate Photo © Corey Kopischke

Sarah Jones wonders, “Does a 40hour week volunteer position count as a job?” Besides being mother to two young boys (Bennett, 7, and Cooper, 9), and a consultant working remotely on environmental remediation at the former Lowry Air Force Base in Denver, Jones, 42, leads the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council’s Sustainable Schools program. “I work many more hours at my volunteer job,” she says. Jones and her husband, Sam, moved to Steamboat Springs in spring 2010. Since then, skiing, mountain biking and river trips have become part of the family’s standard repertoire. “My kids get to ski after school in the winter and go mountain biking every Wednesday morning in the summer. I love saying that to my friends in Denver! That, and I can drop my kids off at school at 8:10 and be on the trail to run or bike by 8:15,” she says. But Steamboat hasn’t been just fun and games for the Jones family.

school. I got to do field work in some really interesting places – Butte, Mont.; the Navajo Reservation in Arizona; Silverton; and Trail, B.C.; in the Selkirk Mountains. OTM: Any advice to someone who wants to work remotely from Steamboat? S.J.: For me, it was easy. I was working from home in Denver already. It took Sam several years to get his company ready. Sam had to find the right people as staff in the Denver office that could work unsupervised, solve problems themselves and take responsibility for various parts of the company. Getting started is really about orienting your company to work without you being present, including very honest verbal discussions about what is expected and several dry runs. Working remotely for the summer months is a good test. OTM: What’s key to balancing your career and your family in Steamboat? S.J.: I have a husband with a flexible schedule. I also start work at 5 a.m. I have two hours to get things done before anyone else in the house is awake. Steamboat Springs On The Move 2011/12

OTM: What is Steamboat lacking in terms of infrastructure? S.J.: Deferring to my husband’s insight, Sam says Steamboat has everything that anyone would need to work remotely. As long as you are available 100% of the time to answer client questions, and remain dedicated to reaching out to clients regularly beyond their requests, it doesn’t really matter where you put yourself. OTM: You volunteer a lot. What are some of your main projects, and why? S.J.: Right now, most of the projects I am working on revolve around trash – really! I have been working with the schools to replace the Styrofoam lunch trays with reusable plates; teaching kids about recycling, upcycling and composting; and getting more school events to be Zero Waste. OTM: Got a pet nonprofit around town? S.J.: Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and Yampatika. OTM: What about them grabs you? S.J.: We chose Steamboat because of its beautiful natural surroundings. So it’s more apparent to me here than anywhere else how important it is to take care of

our environment. I believe getting children connected with and educating them about the natural world is the only way to ensure its preservation into the future. OTM: Got a favorite advice book? S.J.: “Last Child in the Woods” by Richard Louv. Louv writes about the importance of getting our children outside in wild places and letting them play. OTM: Favorite local amenity? S.J.: Emerald Mountain. OTM: Why raise kids here? S.J.: I grew up in a small town in rural New Hampshire and loved my childhood. I wanted my children to have the same thing. In Denver, we never felt like the kids could just go outside and play. In Steamboat, they get to do that all the time. OTM: What do you feel hopeful about and what worries you in our community? S.J.: I see the YVSC Zero Waste Initiative and Sustainable Schools programs growing, and I’m hopeful that the Steamboat community will embrace the concept of sustainability and bring it into their businesses and homes. But I worry that the tough economic times might affect prog-

ress made on the city and county level. OTM: What’s the best perk you can offer an employee in Steamboat? S.J.: I get lots of volunteer help. Besides being thankful for their work, really good chocolate chip cookies. OTM: Favorite business web resource? S.J.: OTM: As a mom? S.J.: Pick five recipes and it prepares a grocery list for you. OTM: Thoughts on Steamboat schools? S.J.: The teachers are so dedicated! Resources are limited and teachers are being asked to do more and more. Despite that, they still care about each individual child. That’s part of a small community. OTM: Anything you’d especially like to see more of in the curriculum? S.J.: Science and sustainability, of course. OTM: As a mom, are there any local programs you especially rely on? S.J.: We love the library. They have amazing programs for kids and it’s a wonderful place to hang out, read and do homework. We also feel very lucky to have the Steamboat Winter Sports Club.

Ryan Marsden

HOmetown by design

On the Move: First Steamboat job? Ryan Marsden: Haymaker Golf Course. I was the range kid after school and over the summer. I loved this job because I got to drive something with a steering wheel before I had a driver’s license, which made me feel super cool…and I played free golf. OTM: What spurred you to help start the Young Professionals Network? R.M.: YPN is the Chamber’s brainchild. The women over there saw the need for an organization to connect young professionals. I believed in the cause and it was a great way to meet new people, stay involved and be a part of this great community. OTM: How has YPN helped you? R.M.: YPN is a great way to create connections with people you perhaps would never meet. It has also been a great learning tool for me, being a member of the board of advisers. When I joined the board, I was the rookie who had no idea what a “motion to approve” meant or what a quorum was. It was not as intimidating to stand up and say, “uhhh please explain” as it may have been jumping into a board with seasoned members. I now have a bit more experience under my belt to join 26

Ryan Marsden, 25, was born and raised in Steamboat Springs. Returning home as a young professional, he has a hard time seeing why he’d move anywhere else. A designer and project manager at Kelly and Stone Architects, Marsden attended Soda Creek Elementary, Steamboat Springs Middle School and played Sailors baseball and golf before heading off to the University of Colorado in Boulder. “When I left for school, I never thought I’d be back so soon, but the opportunity presented itself and I took advantage, and am extremely content with my decision,” he says. He’s was recently named Steamboat’s Young Professional of the Year. Above all, Marsden remains a Steamboat native through and through. “I started out on a pair of skis about the time I could walk,” he says. He longs for more time to support his long list of “recreational habits,” and on any given workday, you’re destined to find Rocky, his springer spaniel, sleeping under his desk.

other organizations in the future. OTM: What would your advice be to someone who wants to design and build a home in Steamboat? R.M.: Engage a designer or architect early in the process, sometimes even before you purchase the property. This can be extremely beneficial in understanding if the program you want is even feasible. Do your research and find a designer or architect that you feel comfortable working with. The process is such that relationships are extremely important.

OTM: What are some architectural elements that you admire around Steamboat? R.M.: Historically, I love the Depot, out of nostalgia mainly. I love the history of this building. When folks first came to Steamboat, this was the first building they experienced off the train. Modern…the new library, without a doubt. Steamboat needed a great space like the new library for the community, right along the river and bike path, close to parks – and it looks good. OTM: What do you see the future of archiSteamboat Springs On The Move 2011/12

tectural design looking like in Steamboat? R.M.: As my generation gets older and begins renovating existing structures or designing new homes, the trend will become smaller and more efficient. Many people my age share the belief that having spaces beyond your means is not necessary and creating smart uses of spaces is practical and necessary. I also love the idea of using local and regional materials. We have so much beetle kill in this region and we should be using it in more and more ways. OTM: What’s the best perk you can offer an employee in Steamboat? R.M.: A ski pass or a powder clause. OTM: What would promote more green construction projects in Steamboat? R.M.: Knowledge and understanding. OTM: Favorite local amenity? R.M.: The Yampa River Core Trail. OTM: What would make it even better? R.M.: Extending the bike path even further and creating more routes. OTM: Looking at Steamboat’s changes in the past few years, what are you most hopeful about? R.M.: We all know Steamboat will continue to grow and I am hopeful that it will continue attracting full-time residents that contribute to this great community and are passionate about keeping it such an amazing place to live. OTM: What are Steamboat’s biggest challenges in attracting and retaining employees? R.M.: The cost of living in such a great place is high, but there are trade-offs and ways of making it work. OTM: What is Steamboat lacking in terms of infrastructure? R.M.: With technology at everyone’s finger tips, there’s nothing that should hold a business back. OTM: What is your favorite web site as a professional resource? R.M.: Design blogs. It’s great to see what people are creating and coming up with. OTM: How important is the local ski industry to your business? R.M.: It’s probably one of the most important aspects of Steamboat’s economy. Most businesses rely on the people that it brings in. The skiing and culture of skiing play a part in why people fall in love with this valley, then they come back in the summer, and it totally seals the deal. They don’t call it the Yampa Valley Curse for nothing. u

Expanding what it means to live like a Steamboat local

Belonging in the 'Boat

D’Ann Kavanaugh and her dog Cooper relish their annual Steamboat Summers

What really defines a local in Steamboat Springs? Initial consideration obviously leans toward those who live and work here throughout the highs and lows of four distinct seasons. But there’s more to being a local than that. It involves understanding and connecting with the community. It’s about participating in what happens and intimately knowing and loving all that the Yampa Valley offers. It isn’t always about your mailing address. Many families and individuals feel like Steamboat locals, but they primarily live and work elsewhere. They may be second-homeowners, live in town part-time, or visit as much as they possibly can – year after year. They are more than mere vacationers passing through. They blend in, hone in on their favorite watering holes, get a library card, volunteer at special events and stay tuned in to the local news. “Steamboat Magazine’s” Dave Lawler calls these folks “v-ocals” – a special brand of visitors who act, and feel, like locals. Someday, they might move here full-time. Nancy Heaney and her husband divide their time between Steamboat and Denver. “The spontaneity makes us feel like locals,” Heaney says. “I don’t have to make appointments to do things with friends.” Shaun Fauley lives and works in Chicago, but he, his wife and two teenagers can’t wait to come to Steamboat. “We tend to fit our life in Illinois around Steamboat rather than the other way around,” Fauley explains. 28

Michael DeGrandis, flys through the air after launching from the water ski jump at Bald Eagle Lake.

Chris DeGrandis and her husband spend a lot of time moving back and forth between Steamboat and Cleveland, Ohio, but it’s worth it every time they return. “I get the feeling that I am home,” DeGrandis says. Linda May and John Morrison live in Houston, but spend every summer and Christmas in Steamboat. “I don’t feel like an outsider,” May explains. D’Ann Kavanaugh trades the hot summer weather at her home in Sedona, Ariz., for the pleasant Steamboat climate. “I feel a real part of this town,” Kavanaugh says. Thomas Becker owns a farm in Missouri, but anytime he has the chance to escape, he’s Steamboat-bound. “Every time I get to go back, I still get that feeling of relief, like there is an end to my incarceration,” Becker says. He says that if he ever has children and doesn’t raise them in Steamboat, he will feel like he cheated them. Steamboat Springs On The Move 2011/12

The ties that bind

Having a place to call their own is what typically grounds these folks. Owning a place or returning again and again to a familiar spot is what they say repeatedly makes them feel settled and at ease. It could be a house, a condominium, an apartment or a guest bedroom with their name on it. They spend a lot of time here – and the more time that passes, the more familiar their own list of special spaces becomes. They’ve found favorite things, not because someone told them, but because they’ve tried them – cravings from a personal experience, whether it’s the perfect powder run, the ideal bike trail, the most delicious Linda May and John Morrison: proud pizza, the best cup of coffee, or a cozy Steamboat v-ocals. corner in a restaurant or bar. They know where to grab a newspaper, find their trusty mechanic or buy the cheapest gas – and how long it will take to get to each by foot, bike or car. Ultimately, the little things add up to the big local experience. “When I have a lousy meal or bad cup of coffee [back home], I just think this will make it that much better the next time I get to go to Harwig’s or get coffee at Off the Beaten Path,” Becker says. Topping the v-ocals’ necessity list: having value cards for the local grocery stores, a library card at Bud Werner Memorial Library, a local bank account, a post office box and a local phone number. That’s rounded out with a summer pass to the gondola, the rodeo or the Howler alpine slide, a membership at the Old Town Hot Springs, and, of course, a ski pass to Mount Werner or Howelsen Hill. And staying connected while you’re away – subscribing to “Steamboat Magazine,” following the Facebook pages of favorite local businesses and organizations until you can return again.

Finding your people Sharing Steamboat with family is a big part of feeling like a local. The May-Morrison family story is not uncommon: They always brought their children to Steamboat. Now their children bring their grandchildren in search of the same deep ties and Yampa Valley experience. On the other hand, DeGrandis has found her local grounding via two sons who are athletes in the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. The century-old club is a tradition at the heart of local life – and it has lured in more than its share of families over the years. DeGrandis’ eldest son recently graduated from Lowell Whiteman School, and her younger one is still a boarding student. Meanwhile, Steamboat remains her home away from home. While that often means the comfort of good friends and neighbors – and impromptu dinner gatherings – ironically, the feeling of blending in means standing out. “Feeling like a local is a lot of just knowing people when you’re out running errands,” Morrison says. “Like when it takes you 45 minutes to get a few things at the grocery store because of all the visiting.” DeGrandis agrees: “When I walk into the Old Town Hot Springs, people know my name. It’s things like that – the recognition and ability to have conversations – that make me feel like a local.”

Knowing the landscape Just like locals, v-ocals have a hard time choosing which season they like best. The rivers, lakes and wilderness lure them to amass every kind of hobby – and storage closets full of gear. Repeatedly, they say they like to escape at peaceful places like the library, the Yampa River Botanic Park and benches alongside the Yampa River. They also say they wouldn’t miss all the hoopla of Winter Carnival, the Fourth of July Parade or Art in the Park. Steamboat is “a relaxing place, but also a place of so much activity,” DeGrandis says.

Getting deeper into the heart of the town Delving into nonprofits and clubs gives volunteers a local voice. Not only does it pay to contribute time, energy and expertise, but you’re guaranteed to meet the full-timers. A plethora of ways to pitch in extends from fundraising campaigns, to galas, to mentoring at-risk youth and entrepreneurs. Opportunities abound to hand out water at a running race, be a docent at the Depot or create a signature sculpture for Bust of Steamboat. Global nonprofits like Come Let’s Dance rely on local support as much as Steamboat’s vibrant arts programs like PerryMansfield and Strings Music Festival. Others find community in Steamboat’s churches or a Bible study group. Lots of part-timers sit on advisory boards for groups like Yampatika and Seminars at Steamboat. Personal passion translates well for volunteering at the Steamboat Art Museum or the Humane Society. May has become a regular performer in the library’s Storytime for Grownups program – one of three v-ocals in that cast.

Re-defining local “There’s a dual feeling of belonging to the community and of caring about the community,” Heaney explains. Perhaps being a Steamboat local is more of an idea than anything else. V-ocals may come and go, but a part of their heart never leaves. After almost 30 years of back-and-forth, Fauley is “possessed by the same miraculous, unrelenting attraction to this beautiful valley.” “When I come over Rabbit Ears and that vista opens up over the valley, that’s when I get the feeling that I am home,”

Someone you know has a new job :) But it doesn’t come with health insurance :(

The extended May-Morrison family gathers at the Yampa Valley Botanic Park.

DeGrandis says. When Becker came to Steamboat in 2001, he was driving west with no particular plan. He stopped in Steamboat and had this feeling of, “I think I need to be here.” He stayed for the next eight years coaching alpine racers at the Winter Sports Club, leaving occasionally to attend to his farm. These days, Becker spends most of his year farming in Missouri but most of his days thinking about returning to Steamboat. “Every time I get to come back, I am like a little kid running back to the candy store,” he says. “I will never be able to get it out of my system.” u

Steamboat Springs On The Move 2011/12

A new chapter Colorado Mountain College expands in Steamboat Springs

By Amanda DeVos Deborah Olsen

Monson Hall makes way for modern CMC facilities.

Following suit on the upgrade-trend in Steamboat Springs, the residential campus of Colorado Mountain College is making $22.9 million in new additions to enhance the education it offers to students and the community. “Steamboat is a highly educated community already that has always been supportive of CMC,” says George Bagwell, former CEO of the Alpine Campus and current CMC professor. “Improving a higher education facility is always a plus.” A 60,000 square-foot, three-level academic center is replacing three older buildings on campus. This mammoth structure, equipped with geo-exchange heating and cooling technology, will house an abundance of new facilities including a gym, auditorium, yoga and Pilates studio, state-of-the-art kitchen, bookstore and cybercafé, as well as classrooms for programs such as ski business, outdoor studies, art, resort management and emergency medical training. Construction kicked off June 1, 2011, and is scheduled for completion by August 2012. A private giving campaign is helping

raise $2.7 million to fund the project. “This transformation of the hillside will provide us with the room we need and higher quality facilities to accomplish our mission: instruction,” Bagwell says. The fall 2011 semester also sees CMC expanding from a 2-year college to a 4-year college, as the school begins offering a Bachelor of Arts degree in sustainability studies and a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration. “We plan on adding at least three more bachelor’s degrees in the relatively near future,” CMC President Stan Jensen says. Nevertheless, CMC will continue to be an open-access college that offers preparatory programs and associates degrees. With the expansion, efforts are being made to improve pedestrian and bicycle access along Bob Adams Drive, the primary access road to CMC, to encourage the presence of Steamboat citizens on campus. A new secondary access road joining 12th Street is designed to help ease traffic flow in and out of the college. “This is an exciting new chapter for CMC to carry on what we have been doing while also becoming a better resource to the community and providing more opportunities to students,” Jensen says. u 31

Steamboat Springs On The Move 2011/12

By Deborah Olsen

SmartWool, the clothing and sock manufacturer headquartered in Steamboat Springs, is not your normal small-town business. First of all, its foundation is built on socks. Ski socks, dress socks, hiking socks, hunting socks, even baby socks. True, SmartWool has expanded its New Zealand merino wool products to include base layers, clothing and accessories, but socks are still at its core. Secondly, the business is housed in a modern, but otherwise abandoned, airport terminal. Jets are tethered to the tarmac behind SmartWool’s offices, and hangars border the property. And then there’s the fact that it’s a multinational business with distribution in nearly 10,000 retail stores in 35 countries around the globe, and its global headquarters are in Steamboat. Like other nationally recognized, outdoor-related businesses headquartered here – Moots Cycles, Kent Ericksen Cycles, BAP! and Honeystinger, for example – SmartWool started out as a small-town operation that was built from the ground up by a handful of people. SmartWool shares a common philosophy with Steamboat that may be a contributing factor in its growth. “We are a common group of people who share a passion for the joy we find outside,” says SmartWool president Mark Satkiewicz, describing his colleagues. He could just as easily be characterizing the Steamboat lifestyle. Living an active mountain life is a sentiment at the heart of why most residents enjoy Steamboat. Still, a satisfying lifestyle can only take a business so far. About five years ago, SmartWool realized it could be poised to achieve significant growth, despite the challenging national economy. But to get there, it needed a substantive strategic plan. “We had overleveraged ‘getting to live in Steamboat,’” Satkiewicz says. “To succeed as a business, you must clearly define who you want to be.” Satkiewicz and his team developed a mission statement and vision for the future. They demonstrated their commitment to enabling people to find their joy in the outside and to live their active mountain lives every day. Getting out SmartWool’s work environment embraces “doing great work and feeling great about being here,” Satkiewicz explains. “How do you balance work and play?” he asks rhetorically. The solution at SmartWool is to “provide benefits that matter.” Last spring, mechanics from local shops gave employees’ bikes a pre-season tune-up, and gave their riders tips on maintenance and repair. Throughout summer, SmartWool cuts its workday short on Fridays and employees go on a group bike ride, which

ends at a local pub for beers and good times. Those employees who choose not to join the ride still come to the after-party. The company provides an unusual opportunity for staff members and guests to attend the annual Outdoor Retailer tradeshow. SmartWool employees pay their own way to join a group bike ride that covers the 360 miles between the office and Park City, Utah, home of the tradeshow. “We love the camaraderie and we really enjoy the ride,” says SmartWool’s Molly Cuffe. “It’s a very special time for the team to get to know each other in a completely different way – challenging ourselves to the fullest. For some people, this is the biggest personal accomplishment they have ever achieved.” SmartWool offers incentives to employees who commute on their bikes, and accommodates flexible work schedules and a casual dress code – although it’s best not to show up in a competitor’s attire, Satkiewicz quips. SmartWool has embraced an old ski town tradition, offering employees a “powder clause” that allows them to sample the fresh snow on Mount Werner before coming in to work on powder days. Group ski days and ski passes are also seasonal benefits. The trade-off for this time to play is employees’ commitment to get their work done well and in a timely fashion. Full-time employees are eligible to be paid for up to 40 hours per year of volunteering for a nonprofit cause. From building mountain bike trails to delivering firewood to needy families throughout the county, SmartWool employees volunteered more than 1,500 hours of their time to serve the community in 2010. In recognition of SmartWool’s corporate culture, “Outside Magazine” has named the Steamboat-based company as one of the “Best Places to Work” for the past three years. Getting real But running a multi-million-dollar business from a remote, rural town does pose challenges. Number-one, Satkiewicz says without hesitation, is travel. It’s a long way from Steamboat to Auckland, or even to Seattle, Wash., headquarters of REI, one of SmartWool’s largest distributors. Seasonal fluctuations in service from Yampa Valley Regional Airport compound the problem. Employee recruitment can also be complicated. While the company supports promotion from within and has a policy of hiring locally whenever possible, occasionally SmartWool has to look outside the Yampa Valley to find essential skill sets. That’s when the “Target factor” sets in. “How far did you say it is to the nearest Target?” job candidates ask incredulously. Despite the 90-mile drive to Target, a successful symbiosis exists between SmartWool and its Steamboat headquarters. It’s obvious the mindset matters: Active. Mountain. Life. u 33
