“Last year’s Penguin Plunge at Catamount Ranch & Club”

The 2011 Penguin Plunge at Catamount Ranch and Club in Steamboat Springs:

The Annual fundraiser for Yampa Valley Medical Center will provide an outlet for those who do not want to jump into 33-degree water on a mid-March morning. They’ll be a pool side to jump instead that is going to be warmer, another option this year.

The “8th Annual Penguin Plunge” will help start a three-year fundraising effort for Yampa Valley Medical Center’s cancer care services. Funds raised will benefit new patient navigation software and programs, part of an effort to earn accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
A kick-off party at 5:30 p.m. March 3 at Sweetwater Grill. The party will feature food, drinks, commemorative glasses, a prize drawing for a flat-screen TV and a celebration of fundraising efforts, this is also a newer event. The event is known for teams of plungers in colorful, creative costumes jumping into frigid water before warming up in a hot tub amid a festive atmosphere. Volunteers chain saw through ice to open up the pool.

Steamboat Springs Real Estate – Mountain Area **Photo Slideshow**

For some Steamboat residents, a home on the mountain means one thing – easier access to skiing. Known as “Ski Town USA,” Steamboat almost 3,000-acre resort attracts winter sports enthusiasts from around the world. A house or condo on the mountain can give the feeling of having miles and miles of first rate ski runs in your own backyard.

But living on the mountain means more than just the chance to take a run or two before work or to be first to ski on 14 inches of fresh powder.

It means being close to some of Steamboat’s largest stores, so restocking the refrigerator or picking up a video can be done within minutes. It means having top-notch golfing and mountain biking outside your door, as well as nearby playing fields, hiking trails and an indoor tennis court. It means being able to walk to the rock concerts, balloon festivals, and other events that take place on the mountain. And it means living on steeply curving roads that provide views of stunning sunsets over town.

The area offers a wide range of home opportunities, from older, more affordable condominium units to luxury single-family homes and town homes with ski in and ski out access. With a range of home styles and prices to choose from, and the accessibility of skiing, shopping and other activities, many people are happy to find a place to live in the mountain area.

Check out Steamboat’s Custom Log Home right off the Steamboat Ski Area, steps away to the base. Call with any questions 970.819.9891 or Email.

Live the Steamboat Lifestyle in a Unique Custom Log Home

We started our company Montana Log Homes of Colorado and have built over 90 homes in Steamboat and the surrounding area. We have been truly blessed being able to live in this wonderful community and watching Steamboat become what it is today. We are living our dream & have the passion and honesty of helping others to do the same.

Each of our handcrafted log homes is as unique as its owner. What you will also find in every home we build, is our unparalleled attention to detail and the pride of our expert craftsmen. It is the difference between a log home and a Montana Log Home.

In 1987 we came to Steamboat for vacation and I realized this is where I wanted to live. We bought our property and went back to Ca to begin making arrangements for the move to Steamboat. Six months later we were back here living our dream, and building our log home overlooking the Steamboat Ski Area.

Steamboat is a western world-class ski resort with limitless outdoor activities and a vibrant arts community. To learn more about buying or selling real estate in Steamboat, please call or email me.
