Fresh Place Friday: Steamboat Springs, CO

This week our Colorado movers are taking you to Ski Town, USA- Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Steamboat Springs (like many other Colorado cities) began as a summer resort where travelers would come to take a dip in the hot springs, enjoy hunting and fishing opportunities and take a horseback ride right in town. What Steamboat Springs, Colorado is actually most known for now is its World Class skiing facilities.

Steamboat Spring, Colorado got its name from the sound a hot spring located near the Yampa River was making. French Fur trappers heard the sound in the 1860s and began referring to the area as Steamboat. The town is rich with history- even Steamboat Springs’ main street was constructed wide enough to accommodate the cattle drives through town. The city is also home to Howelsen Hill, one of Colorado’s oldest ski areas that has remained in use since 1915. Steamboat Springs, CO proudly hosts the oldest annual winter carnival west of the Mississippi River as well. The town is so special it even received one of the first eight “Preserve American Community” designations granted by the White House. Today, Steamboat Springs, CO is a thriving rural city that offers guests and natives recreation year round along with comfortable suburban living mixed with exciting city life.

Fresh Place Friday: Vail, Colorado

What we as Colorado movers find most interesting about the town of Vail, Colorado is that it first started as a ski resort and the established town came next…really speaks to what us Coloradoans find most important, huh?

In 1966, Vail, Colorado became an inhabited town, 4 years after the creation of the Vail Ski Resort. The Vail Ski Resort is home to some of the most invigorating and challenging snow-covered mountains Colorado has to offer, second only to Whistler Blackcomb. Vail, Colorado offers a variety of activities including tubing, skiing and Nordic tours along with a great nightlife scene like piano bars and pubs. Enjoy a trip to the spa after a long day spent on the slops or visit downtown Vail and see what the shops and local dining establishments have to offer.

If you’re looking to move to a smaller city but with an exciting everyday life, then Vail, Colorado is the perfect spot for your Colorado move. With an actual population of under 5,000, the city itself is quaint but is filled with year-round tourists coming to experience all that this world class area has to offer!

This year the Vail Ski Resort will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary! They’ve chosen to celebrate by replacing the Vista Bahn (a slower, more outdated system of mountain transportation) with a brand new gondola serving those looking to travel from Mid Vail into Vail Village. Look out for a series of concerts, festivals and events to honor this amazing Colorado city’s birthday!

Our Colorado moving team couldn’t be happier to see another great city celebrate such a milestone. We LOVE Colorado and all it has to offer. See what Exodus has to offer by “Liking” our Colorado moving Facebook page and following us on Twitter!
