Blues Break Adventures
Thursday, March 03, 2011
This past week was Blues Break for the Steamboat School district and we tried to pack in as much as we could. Saturday started out with a 40 Kilometer Nordic Race at the Lake Catamount Touring Center (Read the article). The growth in Nordic Skiing in Steamboat is pretty dramatic and it is especially noticeable in the number of children that are in the race events and the Nordic program with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.
From there we were off to Moab for 3 days of hiking and biking in the desert. Back to Steamboat on Thursday to sell some real estate. Then, Friday was a day of powder skiing withSteamboat Powdercats where we were thigh deep in fluff all day.

Saturday, my son, Bridger and I drove to Arapahoe Basin for his freestyle competition. On the drive that morning we saw herds of deer, elk, antelope and a huge Golden Eagle feasting on a recent roadkill. Bridger placed 1st in his age group and place 1st overall among 100 skiers. Sunday was the dual competition with another good showing at 4th place. (watch the video.)
There’s never a dull time in Steamboat, especially in the heart of the season.
