The 2013 Annual Workshop
May 7 - May 9, 2013
Steamboat Springs, Colorado
We are extremely excited to announce that our 2013 Annual Workshop will be held at the Steamboat Grand in Steamboat Springs, CO. Think skiers in cowboy hats and you'll have a pretty good mental picture of Steamboat Springs in northwestern Colorado. Yes, there's world-renowned skiing here, but with an undercurrent of cowboy culture. The wide-open Yampa Valley brought cattle ranchers here in the 1800s, and the town's signature store still sells Western wear. Like many of Colorado's most attractive towns, Steamboat Springs has great hot springs. The hot springs in Steamboat are down an adventurous drive north of town that brings you to a riverside canyon in one of the most perfect soaking settings imaginable. In fact, the town got its name from its famed water works. Fur trappers who visited the area in the late 1800s heard the bubbling sound of one of the local hot springs and thought it sounded like a steamboat coming down the Yampa River. Favorite outdoor activities among visitors are a hike to scenic Fish Creek Falls, followed by a mountain-bike ride or hike through the surrounding parks and forests. The town is home to two ski areas: Steamboat Ski Resort and Howelsen Hill, the oldest ski area in continuous use in the state of Colorado, as well as nearly 90 Winter Olympians who call the area home.
