Steamboat Closing Weekend 2017

Steamboat closing weekend was an absolute blast.

Routt Classifieds would like to send a huge thank you out to all the businesses and individuals that make this area so amazing to live in. Year after year we’re treated with fun events (like the cardboard classic) and great music (The Wailers) to finish the ski season. To Steamboat Ski Resort, and everybody who makes these events happen, thank you – you rock!
