STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO-Winter 2005/2006-When winter athletes gather in Italy in 2006, it will be called the Winter Games. When Olympians gather in Steamboat, it’s simply called Friday. This statement has grown out of a 73-year Olympic tradition unmatched in the world. Imagine a town where 1 out of every 180 individuals is an Olympian! In Steamboat, you’re just as likely to share the gondola with an Olympian, as you are to be in the checkout line with one or enjoying one of the free concerts next to an Olympian. “Steamboat’s true sense of community, individuals who have genuine friendly attitudes combined with world-class terrain and abundant snow, make this simply a great place to live,” said Andy Wirth, vice president-sales & marketing for Steamboat. “Imagine you are one of Steamboat’s World, Olympic or National Champions…you’ve skied all over the world and you could live anywhere you wanted. Would you pick your second favorite place? Neither did any of Steamboat’s Olympians.” Steamboat is known around the globe simply as Ski Town, U.S.A.® No other town in North America has produced more winter Olympians than Steamboat Springs, a record 56 and counting. In fact, Steamboat sent more athletes (16) to the 2002 Games than many small countries and 2006 looks to add to that total.

Mother nature is on our side so far this November. Timberline Lodge went from 0 to 40 inches of snow on the ground in the last 17 days. The pacific storms were stacked one right after the other the last 2+ weeks. Today, the sun has come out and the ski conditions are excellent. Timberline's opening date of November 5 was the earliest opening in 5 years, so we hope this is a good indication of the winter to come. We have a group of ski racers and snowboard campers arriving today for our Thanksgiving camp, including 83 year old Fran Balice, from Big Sky, Montana. You're never too old to go to ski camp!
