2020 Workout Class Pass now on sale

Steamboat and Routt County residents are passionate about their fitness but with so many indoor and outdoor options, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. 

That’s one reason Steamboat Pilot & Today has launched its 2020 Workout Class Pass. The Workout Class Pass allows cardholders to sample six different Steamboat fitness facilities between January and June 2020 at a bargain price. 

For $89, cardholders can visit each fitness facility once per month. That’s less than $3 per visit. 

And because our participating facilities offer a wide range of fitness options, the Workout Class Pass is the perfect sampler to help you keep your fitness sessions new and different. 

For example, Love Climbing Adventures is more than a climbing center. The Workout Class Pass includes three climbing sessions, one spin class, one aerial silk yoga class and one acro yoga class. 

Elevation Dance Studio offers classes ranging from yoga, cardio dance and low-impact weight training set to music. Anytime Fitness offers 24-hour access to weights, and cardio and functional training equipment. CrossFit celebrates change by offering training sessions that are different day to day. 

And Steamboat Ski Touring Centers is offering cross-country skiing or snowshoeing at Steamboat Nordic Center and Haymaker Nordic Center. Because these facilities are dependent upon snow, monthly visits to each center are restricted to January through March. But at such a reduced per-visit price, you’ll want to take advantage of this winter opportunity by squeezing in your six Class Pass sessions into those three months. 

We’re selling a maximum of 150 Class Passes so you’ll want to purchase early, either for yourself or for a one-of-a-kind holiday gift that will keep on giving.

Letters to Santa

What would Christmas be like without Letters to Santa? Thankfully we don’t have to worry about that as Pilot & Today is excited to again partner with Mainstreet Steamboat on the annual Letters to Santa program. 

We’re asking our young readers to drop off their letters in the mailbox at any of these locations:

  • Santa’s House on the Bank of the West lawn at Lincoln Avenue and Sixth Street.
  • Alpine Bank, 1901 Pine Grove Road, Suite 101.
  • Jon Wade — The Steamboat Group, 32 10th St.
  • Steamboat Pilot & Today, 32 10th St. 

Letters can also be emailed to one of Santa’s helpers:  

Be sure to submit your letter by Dec. 19. We’ll publish all letters in the Dec. 23 issue of Pilot & Today. Those writers who provide a return address will receive a letter from Santa. 

Thanks to Alpine Bank and The Steamboat Group for their support of Letters to Santa this season. 

Yampa Valley Gives Guide

You may have noticed a slight tweak to Pilot & Today’s front page this week, as we count down to Yampa Valley Gives Day on Dec. 10. As part of this annual event, Pilot & Today is again partnering with the Yampa Valley Community Foundation to publish a 40-page Guide to Giving in advance of Colorado Giving Day on Dec. 10. 

Our handy guide highlights nearly 80 local non-profits that would love your support on Yampa Valley Gives Day on Dec. 10. More than 3,000 locals donated $913,000 on last year’s Yampa Valley Gives Day, a display of generosity that has a huge impact on our communities. 

This year’s Giving Guide highlights non-profits running the gamut of services from healthcare and education to the arts and environment. These organizations benefit causes throughout the region. 

Look for the guide inserted inside all copies of the Dec. 3rd issue of Pilot & Today.
