Alex Pond joins The Steamboat Group Real Estate 

Alex Pond has joined The Steamboat Group Real Estate as a buyers agent after working for over 12 years at Colorado Mountain College as a property manager and working with the City of Steamboat Springs Parks and Recreation Department in Steamboat.

“Steamboat is truly a paradise, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to show others what an amazing life you can create here,” Pond said in a news release. “One of my greatest passions is working with people, and I am eager to help guide those interested in finding their dreams and reaching their goals within the community.”

Originally from Vermont, Pond moved to Steamboat in 2005 for the skiing but discovered a community that supported a healthy lifestyle and a great family life for his daughter Reesa. Pond has competed professionally in mountain bike races for six years and he enjoys ski mountaineering during the winter. He has also volunteered extensively for local bike and ski programs and coaches the high school mountain biking team.

“I’m thrilled to have Alex join our team,” said Jon Wade, The Steamboat Group founder and owner, in a news release. “His passion for Steamboat, enthusiasm, knowledge about the community, and the people here make him a wonderful addition to The Steamboat Group.”

New chiropractic practice opens in Steamboat Springs

Dr. Keri Dennison and Dr. Kevin Gower have opened Thrival Mode, a chiropractic clinic, at 1815 Central Park Drive, Unit 101-A, next to City Market. The clinic focuses on providing gentle, neurologically-based chiropractic care to pregnant mothers, infants, kids, athletes and the whole family.

Dennis is from West Virginia and Gower grew up in Steamboat Springs. The pair uses NASA-developed, space-certified technology to measure how the nervous system is functioning throughout care.

“Our philosophy of chiropractic care stems from a desire to improve the lives of our patients, not to just treat their injuries,” said Gower in a news release. “Chiropractic can enhance healthy life potential, not just in physical terms but in creating healthy life choices.”

“Our journey together continues in the Yampa Valley, bringing our philosophy of innate, healthful expression and empowered, informed family health choices to the place we call home,” Gower added.

A ribbon cutting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at Thrival Mode in partnership with the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council. For every like, share or check-in at the clinic’s Facebook page, $1 will be donated to YVSC.
