Learning to Ride: Back in the Saddle Again

By Nicole Miller

I’m relatively new to Steamboat Ski Area, where I work as the social media specialist. When the Steamboat Bike Park opened for the season in June, I was posting a YouTube video of guys flying down the trails, hitting jumps, doing tricks and being generally rad.

The problem is that I’m…

Time to Get Back, Slowly

In many of my past blog posts I've written about training and conditioning based on my personal experience. This blog post is no different.

Recently, I had fairly major surgery on my knee from an injury I incurred last winter. After two months of being unable to much of anything, I am ready to get moving again. Unlike earlier posts where I was writing from the vantage point of being healthy and strong, today I am starting at square one.

Something I've always known, but what…

Sniffin' Out Safety....Summer Wildlife

I love the summertime in Steamboat. The flowers bloom, the grass is vibrant green and all my furry forest friends come out to play. There are lots of wild animals that call Steamboat their backyard, too, and even though they look cuddly and fun, I always have to remind myself to keep my distance.

The safest way to view wildlife in the Yampa Valley is from a distance. If you see an animal, it’s fine to take a picture — just use the zoom feature on your camera instead of getting close.…

Looking to Get Summer Fit?

The white blanket of winter is gone and yet some of us might still be hanging on to our proverbial winter layer. Yes, somehow the pounds can add up during those cold winter months when your body is fighting the elements to stay warm. (At least that's my excuse.) Suddenly summer is here and you are wanting to shed those unwanted "warm" layers of extra weight. Don't fret! Changes should be small and incremental but ultimately will have a significant effect. BABY STEPS.

The only…

A Fond Farewell

Wiping the spring slush off my skis for the last time this season, I can't help but embrace a bit of sadness in my heart.  There's always something sentimental about writing the final Straight Talk for the year and even macho guys like myself aren't immune.


In writing today's report, I could of…

One last dance.

 What a wonderful season, let the fun begin.

Calling all Instagrammers!

It's closing weekend and what better way to bid the 2013-2014 season adieu then entering an Instagram contest?

We all love our handy phones and the easy access to taking incredible shots, "selfies" and all. I would like to fancy myself being quite the professional when it comes to snapping shots with my trusty iphone. I know my sister, Isabelle has quite the Instagram following and I am often am amazed at what she captures.…

This year was my 10th ski season in Steamboat, and I have to say it was a good one.  The powder really piled up this winter and skewed my sense of time because the…
