We want to share a few of our staffers “favorite things” just in time for the holiday season. Everything can be purchased locally right here in Steamboat Springs!
Katie Carroll, Director of Artistic Administration & Education
My favorite thing at the holidays is rereading The Polar Express. I love that book and the idea that magic still exists in the every day! Believe! (cue Josh Groban).
I also love the Four Points Bloody Mary. Nothing beats an end-of-day drink at the lodge before heading down the hill for the last time. Put $15 on your friend’s pass for the next powder day!
Erin Walker, Development Director
I love Ranch Organics Harvest Barn Balm, and every other product they make! Ranch Organics was featured at the store Anthropologie and in celebrity gift bags for major award shows. We’re so lucky it’s made locally in the Elk River Valley, hence the moniker “Ranch to Tub.” Steamboat Coffee & Tea Co. is a local business we are so lucky to have! Not only do they already have great roasts available, you can meet with owner John Kuhn and create your own roast!
Cristin Frey, Marketing Director
I recently discovered the macaroons from Elevated Olive and I bring them as a hostess gifts to holiday parties. They are incredible! If money is no object, you can’t beat a day with Steamboat Powdercats. Aim for a February date and pray for powder.
Leslie Morace, Finance Director
You can’t go wring with something from Yampa Valley Farms. It’s delicious, healthy, local and they even sell bacon! To counter balance the bacon, Kristin Stevenson is a fabulous Pilate’s instructor at the Steamboat Pilates Studio and they sell gift cards. She knows exactly what to do for your body and she cares!
Elissa Greene, Executive Director
I love Daniela’s chocolates from the Homesteader. I buy this for all my out-of-town relatives. I especially love their toffee! Who doesn’t love Smartwool products in Steamboat? This is another of my family’s favorites, I send socks, hats, gloves, you name it!
Noah Hendricks, IT Manager & Audio Engineer
I’m a big fan of Smartwool, of course, for their outstanding lineup of keep-you-warm wool products. Also, Cowboys and Indians for their amazing selection of Native-inspired rugs.
Dustin Bergstrom, Box Office Manager
Harwig’s gift certificates! By far the best food in town accompanied by $7 Grey Goose martinis (plural), nuff said. Head over to Steamboat Powersports and buy yourself a brand new Harley Davidson, because it’s a Harley Davidson.
Steve Chambers, Production Director
A Cafe Diva gift certificate, any reason to eat there is a GREAT reason. And Central Park Liquor gift certificates…the gift that keeps on giving….and its never the wrong size.
