Most fireplaces within Steamboat city limits run on natural gas. They burn clean and are energy efficient. Here is a classic clean-lined fireplace with wood mantel. I can already see the stockings hung with care here.

My favorite fireplace, however, is not a fireplace at all. It is the outdoor firepit on my patio here in Steamboat Springs. Overlooking Emerald Mountain and Strawberry Park, it’s perfect for every season.

Stay warm,
