At 7,000 Feet, Altitude Sickness is Real Steamboat Springs, Colorado is at 6,728 ft. elevation and the top of the ski area is 10,568 ft.. Although this is not terribly high, it is still not sea level.  If you are visiting Steamboat Springs, Colorado from sea level, you may experience some symptoms of “Altitude Sickness “ or “ Acute Mountain Sickness." Acute altitude sickness usually presents above 8,000 ft. so we are a little safer here. But everyone is different and you may be more susceptible to the change in altitude than someone else. Steamboat Springs CO As you climb in altitude, the air becomes thinner, the humidity decreases, and the air gets colder - which is why the smmer is so great here.  Lack of atmospheric pressure is the true cause of altitude sickness. The amount of oxyge...

What happened to summer? All of the sudden the leaves are starting to change, school has started for many, Labor Day plans are taking shape...and real estate transactions are picking up. It's as if buyers and sellers also recognized the waning of the season. The Steamboat Springs MLS reports 177 pending sales today, which is up about 15-20% from the earlier part of summer...even into July. Those pending sales represent almost $80 million in transactions, once closed. In spite of the uptick, average and median prices of pending sales remain fairly constant with the average being $446,105 and the median $289,900. 54% of pending sales in all property types are under $300k, 15% in the 300k range, 10% in the $400's, 4% in $500k, 4.5% between $600 and $800k, 4.5% under 1 million to $800k and ...

Ski Town, USA Gone to the Dogs   We all know that Steamboat Springs, CO is an amazing place to live and play. It's called Ski Town, USA and Bike Town, USA for good reason. But now Dog Town, USA? What's next? Steamboat Springs was appropriately trademarked Ski Town USA for its World Class skiing facilities and loads of fresh champagne powder. National Geographic named The 'Boat, as locals affectionately refer to it, as one of the World's 25 Best Ski Towns.  Not to mention more winter Olympians, 79 to be exact, call Steamboat Springs their hometown - more than any other town in the US. More recently, Steamboat has adopted the identity of Bike Town USA. With 500+ miles of singletrack, endless road cycling  opportunities, BMX tracks, the Core Trail system and a community of passionate cycli...

Steamboat Springs Market Report for June, 2013 Routt County / Steamboat Springs, Colorado Another decent month for Steamboat Springs real estate.  The second best month of 2013. But compared to last June, this month was down by -28.99% from June 2012.  The Year to Date gross volume picture is a little brighter  up +7.57% over last year’s gross at the end of the second quarter.  On a transaction basis, June was only slightly down by -0.92%, while the Year to Date is up +14.26%. In Steamboat, sales are up, sold properties are up, but so is the inventory. Thus, we might be seeing a steadying of prices. With an increase in inventory, absorption rate slows down and prices mightnot go up as fast as we thought.  This slow down is also being felt across the country. Click here to view a CNN art...

  One Steamboat Place, in the middle of it all..winter and summer! The week's Steamboat Springs real estate sales were slightly slower, with 17 whole ownership sales for a dollar amount of $7,031,395. Included in that number is a One Steamboat Place transaction for over $2 million. I mention this because I have a non-developer unit listed for sale at One Steamboat Place for $2,145,000. The Lease that is currently in place makes my OSP listing a unique investment opportunity. Please call for details. Of the sales reported, 5 were single family, 8 condo/townhomes, and 4 were land/lots with no commercial/industrial sales reported. Average and median pending list prices moved up to $463,018 for average and $298,500 for median. Pending sales with a list price of over $1million jumped to 9.3%...

Fly Fishing Rubber Hatch in Steamboat Springs, Colorado In fly fishing, one talks about "matching the hatch." Matching the hatch means you select the right artificial fly to match the natural flies that are in the area and what the fish are eating at the time.  During the summer months in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, it's rather predictable that during the hot month of the summer, the "rubber hatch" will be going off - rubber meaning tubes. That's my buddy Bobby working both the hatches. Now this "rubber hatch" is a term the Steamboat fly fishing people say when the tubers are out. Tubbing the Yampa river in Steamboat Springs is a very popular summertime event. It's easy, refreshing, and a great way to spend a few hours floating and seeing Steamboat Springs from the river. The Yampa is ...
