Ski Town, USA Gone to the Dogs

We all know that Steamboat Springs is an amazing place to live and play. It’s called Ski Town, USA and Bike Town, USA for good reason. But now Dog Town, USA? What’s next?

Steamboat was appropriately trademarked Ski Town USA for its World Class skiing facilities and loads of fresh champagne powder. National Geographic named The ‘Boat as one of the World’s 25 Best Ski Towns.  Not to mention more winter Olympians, 79 to be exact, call Steamboat Springs their hometown – more than any other town in the US.

More recently, Steamboat has adopted the identity of Bike Town USA. With 500+ miles of singletrack, endless road cycling  opportunities, BMX tracks, the Core Trail system and a community of passionate cyclists, Bike Town USA is a well-earned brand. In 2011 the League of American Bicyclists acknowledged Steamboat’s efforts and dedication to cycling by naming it a Gold level Bicycle Friendly Community. Residents will once again enjoy a stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge later this month along with a week’s worth of cycling races and activities.

Now, according to an article from Steamboat Pilot and TodayDog Fancy magazine has named Steamboat Springs “Dog Town, USA” to be featured in its September magazine. In the news release, Dog Fancy Editor Ernie Slone states, “Steamboat Springs is a mile-high mecca for dogs and their owners, embracing a love for canines in daily life and activities year-round.” It’s true. Go to any local business and you are likely to be greeted by a furry four-legged friend. Gizmo, a Jack Russel Terrier, accompanies his owner to work at the Old Town Hot Springs everyday. If you have ever been to Steamboat, or have read my blog Bringing Your Dog To The ‘Boat – Dog-Friendly Steamboat Springs, you already know how much we love our canines here. We are happy that other dog devotees in the world will now know it too.With these three prestigious and legitimate titles bestowed upon us, what can we look forward to next – Hot Springs, USA? River Town, USA? Olympians-in-the-Making, USA?

Steamboat Springs is an incredible place. There is no doubt about that. Ask any dog or its human here and they will tell you that we live in paradise. We believe The ‘Boat is worthy of these titles and more, so if other entities would like to continue to bestow such honors upon us, we will take them!
