Business Briefs bike trailS, yamPa Street to benefit from City'S aCCommoDationS tax

Business Climate





A rendering of new river parks along Transportation Yampa Street proposed to be funded by the City's Accommodations Tax.

If Steamboat seems like it has more than its share of well-built public amenities, at the root of it is an innovative funding source. Already responsible for building the Strings Music Pavilion, Tennis Center at Steamboat Springs and Haymaker Golf Course, a portion of the city’s accommodations tax gets appropriated to provide


amenities that will attract visitors and benefit residents.

If approved by voters in November, the two projects would benefit from an estimated $6 million in tax proceeds throughout the next 10 years, or about $600,000 per year, with the Yampa Street revitalization proposal receiving $900,000 during the next three years and the trail proposal receiving most of the rest. On Yampa Street, proceeds will help enhance downtown as a visitor destination with the project’s centerpiece a 16- to 24-footwide, landscaped walkway along the river side of Yampa Street connecting a series of public parks. Last year, a team of urban planners toured downtown to recommend potential improvements.

“A lot of towns have rivers, but few have parks like Howelsen Hill On the list of possibilities for and Emerald Mountain, complete the next round of improvements with ski jumps and mountain bike are enhancing the town’s trail trails, right on the edge of the system and creating a new river- downtown,” Steamboat Springs side walkway and series of public Planning Director Tyler Gibbs parks along Yampa Street down- says. “Great communities look for town. these types of opportunities.”

Local Government

On the bike trail side, the funds would be used by the Steamboat Springs Trails Alliance to further expand the Yampa River Core Trail for several miles to the Humble Ranch south of town. The project also would open new public access to the Yampa near the Chuck Lewis State Wildlife Area as well as build new trail networks for mountain biking and hiking. The Trails Alliance ultimately is proposing to build, expand and improve 46 multiuse trails and connectors in the city and adjacent lands. Proponents add that their projects can be leveraged with grants from entities such as Great Outdoors Colorado. “The project is way more than just mountain bike trails,” local trail designer Aryeh Copa says. “The projects should benefit everyone who comes to Steamboat.”

Business Briefs aCz laboratorieS haPPy With exPanSion Further cementing its commitment to Steamboat Springs, ACZ Laboratories — which conducts environmental testing for mining, petroleum and other industries — recently completed a $1.4 million, 8,000-squarefoot expansion and renovation of its local headquarters. This brings the 54-employee firm’s total business space in Routt County to 31,000 square feet. 


ACZ’s manager of business development, Tim VanWyngarden, says that the new expansion has allowed for an increase in the lab’s overall capacity and has helped with productivity, leading to the hiring of more local employees in 2013. The extra space also has enabled ACZ to add such new capabilities as humidity cell column testing, which is used to predict what contaminates might leach from mine rock, part of a long list of testing required when permitting modern mines. 

Founded in 1980 as a support service to the mining industry in the western U.S., today ACZ supports mining operations throughout the world. “One of our largest clients operates two gold mines in Ghana, and we support mining operations throughout the world,” VanWyngarden says. “About 80 percent of the major mines operating in Alaska utilize ACZ’s services for the analysis of groundwater and surface water.”

Thanks to two local companies and locals eager to embrace new trends, stand-up paddleboarding has enveloped Northwest Colorado like a tsunami. Founded in 2010, locally based Hala Gear is a board manufacturer offering a line of four inflatable paddleboards and the patent-pending Butterknife paddle.

Downtown gets walk of olympians Want to see town’s Olympic spirit first hand? Simply take a stroll downtown. Steamboat’s Walk of Olympians project honors local Olympians who have lived or trained in the Yampa Valley. So far, nearly 15 18-by-18-inch bronze plaques have been set into sidewalk brick downtown, letting people stroll through Steamboat’s Olympic heritage.

The plaques can be found at Fifth and Yampa streets, Seventh and Yampa streets and in front of Allen’s Clothing on Lincoln Avenue. “We’ve gotten great comments on it,” says organizer Tracy Barnett, who eventually hopes to honor all of Steamboat’s retired Olympians. “It’s a great addition to downtown.” The plaques — which so far honor Olympians Buddy, Loris

and Skeeter Werner, Billy Kidd, Todd Wilson, Shannon Dunn, Scott Berry, Moose Barrows, Gordy Wren, Nelson Carmichael and Caroline Lalive — feature a head and action shot along with the athlete’s Olympic accomplishments. “It’s an honor,” says Wilson, Nordic director for the Winter Sports Club. “It’s another sign of how this community embraces

athletics and its Olympians.”


Wilson hopes the plaques will help pass along the values that helped carry him to his Olympic dream. “I’ve never been comfortable being put on a pedestal, but if I’m an example of what can be accomplished through hard work, that’s great,” he says.

Technology loCation-neUtral bUSineSS SPotlight: Deer Park roaD CorP. Deer Park Road Corp., an investment firm that recently had a fund rank in Barron’s Top 100, can be based anywhere it wants to. But founder and president Michael Craig-Scheckman, who started the operation locally in 2003, chose Steamboat for its lifestyle and business infrastructure — including airport proximity and Internet access — that allows it to conduct business at the base of Mount Werner as easily as if it was on Wall Street.

In 2014, Deer Park is breaking ground on a new four-floor office building in Wildhorse Meadows at the base of the mountain. Thanks to a new planned unit development process the developer is pursuing, the project will facilitate the construction of location-neutral office space.

Managing assets valued at more than $1 billion, Deer Park is a multifund investment manager that invests in distressed real estate and asset-backed, fixed-income securities for individual and institutional investors. In 2008, it established the STS Partners Fund, LP — ranked by Barron’s in 2013 as the nation’s seventh-best hedge fund — and in 2010, it launched an additional offshore fund.

The building’s top floor will have a large conference room and gym, below that will be a full trading floor, and the bottom will include a restaurant and coffee shop open to the public.





“It will be a location-neutral type of campus for people who don’t need a headquarters or can commute electronically," Wildhorse Chief Financial Officer Brent Pearson says.

The new facility will allow all employees to be under the same roof as the company continues to expand.

“We definitely benefit from being close to the ski slopes,” says Chief Operating Helping it achieve this success are 14 Officer Brad Craig, adding that the new full-time local employees, all blessed to be location will allow visiting clients access able to pursue their careers in an outdoor to the Wildhorse Meadows gondola. and family-oriented town like Steamboat. “We’re excited to be able to grow and Their access to Steamboat’s outdoor ame- continue utilizing Steamboat as a great nities also is about to get even better. community.”

Won't yoU be my neighbor? Borrowing a cup of sugar from a neighbor in Steamboat isn’t invading, it’s expected. Simply put, move to Steamboat and you’ll relocate to as friendly a town as you’ll find anywhere, no matter the price point. From higher-end homes along Fish Creek and the Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club in The Sanctuary to quaint Victorians dotting Old Town and family-affordable options west of town in Silver Spur and Steamboat II, spare eggs are just a door knock away no matter where you settle down. For proximity to the mountain, buyers can choose from townhomes, condos or homes near the resort or a variety of single-family homes in the Whistler and Fish Creek Falls Road neighborhoods. Closer to town, neighborhoods range from Fairview and Brooklyn “on the other side of the tracks” with backyard access to Emerald Mountain to countless walk-to-town homes downtown. Farther away are homes and working ranches in Strawberry Park and beyond as well as those in the aptly named Riverside and Treehouse neighborhoods. In all, more than 20 distinct neighborhoods comprise town, each one offering its own charm. “Steamboat’s a bit of an anomaly,” Ulrich Salzgeber, of Buyer’s Resource, says. “At most ski resorts, the higher dollar per-square-foot homes are around the base. That’s not necessarily the case here. Steamboat has a lot of great neighborhoods people want to be in.” What they all share is belonging to one of the best communities in the country. “What separates us from other resorts is that the people who live here, live here,” adds Salzgeber. “Steamboat has a lot of other attractive features besides the mountain, foremost of which is its community.”

“We’ve seen an employment recovery as well as growth in the retail trade sector,” he says. “And the job increases are coming in a number of sectors, including the technological, health care, construction industries and more. It’s a broad-based recovery with both part- and full-time job growth.”

Local Government

Another indicator of the recovery, he adds, is foreclosures, which he says are down by 24 percent from 2012 as of June 2013, with residential foreclosures down 64 percent. “As a whole, the market is improving, but buyers need to know their competition and act quickly after locating a property that fits their needs,” he says. On the economic front, other key indicators also point to a continued recovery for Routt County, with gross retail sales and unemployment numbers expected to continue improving into 2014. Local economic analyst Scott Ford says his most recent research gives reason for optimism.

He also sees encouraging signs in both the size of the local workforce and growing income levels. “More than 70 percent of the local workforce is working fulltime jobs,” he says. “That’s pretty active. We’re also seeing household income growth at a greater rate than the rate of inflation.” Behind it all, he adds, is something a lot of towns don’t have the benefit of: an attractive, family-friendly community. “We live in an extraordinary place, which gives us the best of both worlds,” he says. “We’re still seeing a lot of young families move here, bringing jobs or employment with them.”

Recrea t ion bike toWn USa With a world-class bike path, miles of trail improvements, ride to work and school initiatives, new BMX, pump and freeride options, a top-notch local race series, two bike manufacturers and more, Steamboat Springs’ Bike Town USA movement is rolling strong, enough that the League of American Bicyclists recently awarded Steamboat its Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community designation. “Biking help makes Steamboat a year-round destination,” says Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association President Tom Kern, who hosted national bike media members here this summer. “It’s an integral part of our community.” Like skiers, these visitors represent an affluent demographic, enjoying a higher-than-average median household income of $59,000. The movement to reach this


Steamboat’s seven-event Town Challenge race series offers 24 categories, from pro/open and three age groups for various men’s and women’s divisions to kids and singlespeed. “It’s super fun and a great way to bring local riders together,” says series founder Gretchen Sehler, whose events draw as many as 200 riders per race.

Thanks to local sponsorship from Prudential Steamboat Realty, local Mountain Bike Hall of Famer Kent Eriksen’s Tour de Steamboat regularly draws as many as 1,000 riders to benefit various nonprofit operations. The noncompetitive event offers a 40-mile ride, Yampa River Core Trail ride and 110-mile

The town’s riding boundless options are the backbone of this biking movement. “People are now coming here from around the country just to go biking,” Steamboat Ski & Bike Kare owner Harry Martin says. “There are a ton of different options right from town.”

"Racing is in our DNA, and this is a great way to showcase the great trails we have,” company President Bill Gamber says.

Ride 4 Yellow

USA Pro Challenge

On the philanthropic front, few events rival the Ride 4 Yellow, a 26mile mountain bike ride put on by the 4 Yellow Foundation to provide cancer support funding through the Yampa Valley Community Foundation. The event draws as many as 200 cyclists of all abilities, raising as much as $300,000 per event.

Steamboat Stinger

Now entering its fifth year, the Steamboat Stinger draws 400 mountain bikers to town to race 50 miles up and over Emerald Mountain twice. Hosted by local energy food company Honey Stinger, the race lures the sport’s best and offers solo and duo divisions as well as full and half-marathon trail races.

This internationally acclaimed cycling event returned to Steamboat in 2013 for the second time, once again honoring town with a two-race stop on the tour and showing world-class cyclists everything there is to love about Steamboat. This year, Steamboat served as the finish of Stage 3, which had racers starting in Breckenridge and finishing in downtown Steamboat, and the next day’s start of Stage 4, which saw racers starting in Gondola Square and ending more than 100 miles later in Beaver Creek.

Steamboat Enduro-X mountain bike series

Enduro riding has come full force to Steamboat, with the new Steamboat Enduro-X series stag-

ing two events on the mountain in 2013. Events were held in June and August, luring some of the country’s top riders to newly built downhill trails coursing down the slopes of Steamboat Ski Area. The new series also offers a Kids Pump Track Jam, Dual Slalom Races and a Strider Challenge for the youngsters, making each event fun for the whole family.

Steamboat Stage Race Held every Labor Day weekend, the Steamboat Stage Race follows a similar format as the Tour de France, requiring racers to compete over three days. It offers 10 categories, with equal prize money for the pro men and women’s fields, and is going stronger than ever. “It’s great to see pro riders racing alongside local racers,” says organizer Corey Piscopo, whose event draws 400 competitors to the streets of Steamboat.
