STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Conroy Moving and Storage has a new owner and its Olympic Alpine coach Ryan Shorter. Shorter and his family moved to Steamboat Springs in July, but he is the third generation of his family to call the Yampa Valley home.

His grandfather Carl Shorter was born in Steamboat in 1913, and his great-grandfather Irving Shorter logged the Sarvis Creek Wilderness Area and built the flumes, remnants of which can still be seen while hiking in the Sarvis Creek Wilderness.

After the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Ryan Shorter retired from coaching full time and looked for a business opportunity in Steamboat. Conroy Moving and Storage fit well with his past experience in transportation logistics, shipping and receiving.

Shorter’s wife, Alexandra Shorter, is the head U10 coach at the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.

Conroy Moving and Storage provides professional moving services for local, national and international moves. They also provide climate-controlled and secure storage, freight receiving services and moving boxes.

“We love being part of this amazing community and are focused on providing the best customer service in the moving and storage industry,” said Ryan Shorter in a news release.
