“Came for the winters, stayed for the summers.” A common saying amongst Steamboat Springs residents. Many credit the “Yampa Valley Curse” from a Ute Indian leader who swore nobody could leave once they moved in. Ironically, our family is now leaving because of the winters.
And on the 8th day, God covered Steamboat in single track. Actually, the hundreds of miles in bike trails that we now enjoy in Bike Town USA comes from decades of planning, building, and maintenance – mostly by volunteers. Two people who have invested more than most in that process are Marc and Gretchen Sehler. I ran into them on the trail this week and learned a lot about our local biking history.
