St. Cloud is Where I Want to Be - 01/09/09 09:13 PM
My first trip to St. Cloud Mountain Club in Steamboat was last night because I was invited to watch the National Championship. First of all, let's get the horrible outcome of the game over with, because as an OU alum, this was not my hope as I dawned my red sweater in honor of the Sooners. What a bummer! Luckily, my surroundings spoke to my other senses. The sleek mountain contemporary stylings, multi-media art, comfortable bar, seeting pods, inviting indoor/outdoor fireplace, substantial locker room with boot warming rack like I have never seen, delicious Chardonnay and fun with clients and friends took my game (0 comments)

Steamboat Sheraton is Something to See and Experience - 01/03/09 04:14 PM
For those of you who know the Steamboat Sheraton, you know the old school 70's hotel at the base area...you are in for a treat. They have just unveiled the coolest remodel I have seen in a long time. They got it right and the nearly $20 million they sunk into it really paid off. As part of a total makover, last week a few of us got to experience and tour the new look. I am looking forward to having a hot toddy after a long day of skiing in that bar. They have set up several pods where you can hang with your ski buddies, clients and (0 comments)
