Gina Franklin replied to Caroline Thurman's discussion Family holiday
"As a Steamboat devotee who first went there looking for the same things I have to chime in.   The company you are looking for is Moving Mountains, actually based in Steamboat Springs.  They offer the "all-in" catered chalet…"

Gina Franklin replied to Boo Boo's discussion Sheraton - Pool?
"We have been eying the pool at Edgemont which looks to have a divine view and the condos at Edgemont look a cut above anything out there for the money.  Our friends at Moving Mountains have a great selection of units there - we're just…"

"Hi James, in light of your comments on the new site can you tell me why I can't play the videos on my iPad? You seem to be saying I should be able to. Thanks for your help, Martin"

"We do have a current and soon to be improved mobile site. It's accessed via the top and leftmost link on every page, or you can just go to http://steamboat.com/m We've had lots of folks say they love all the cams on one page, and others…"

"Rick is correct that one way to read the Straight Talk report is to subscribe to the email. The other way is to read it here on this site, which is where it's actually input by the Straight Talkers. Look at the top nav and under Blog…"

Rick replied to Gina Franklin's discussion The Worst Website Look To Date...?
"Well, I couldn't find it on the website, either, BUT: If you go to the top of the page, there is a box for "newsletter sign-up". If you go to that page, one of the choice is "Straight Talk" (a slight exageration, based on my…"

Mitch & Lanie replied to Gina Franklin's discussion The Worst Website Look To Date...?
"I do agree that I liked the "older" version of the site for its aesthetic appearance. This new site is easier to navigate but has lost some of its charm. One thing I would like to see back (maybe it is there and I can't find it) is…"

TTB replied to Gina Franklin's discussion The Worst Website Look To Date...?
"I do have to admit that the old website did have an effect on my wife and I choosing Steamboat for our first ski vacation two years ago. It just had such an inviting feel to it. This year will be our third year in a row to the boat and whether the…"

"The new site is HORRIBLE! It may be faster but good lord it is way hard to read and the white page is just a bad choice. I could care less if it works on my phone...I'm not using my blackberry I'm using my PC and it never bogged down on me…"

James replied to Gina Franklin's discussion The Worst Website Look To Date...?
"A quick FYI on what I see when I look at the new site (disclaimer: I ran the project to develop and release it) I see a site that is much faster, a bit wider, more photo-centric, doesn't bog down people's machines w/Flash snow, has…"
