Steamboat Briefs: Steamboat Ski Area to host seasons photo contest

Whether you’re floating on Champagne Powder snow on the ski slopes or soaking up the sun along the Yampa River, Steamboat is an amazing place to live or visit year-round. Steamboat Ski Area is asking residents and visitors to pick a favorite Steamboat photo taken in winter or summer and re-create the photo during the opposite season. The Then-And-Now photo contest kicks off today, and there are great prizes up for grabs.

How to enter:

■ Re-create a summer version of a wintertime photo or a winter version of a summertime photo taken in Steamboat.

■ Post both photos to your public Instagram, Facebook or Twitter account.

■ Include #SteamboatResort and #ThenAndNow and tag Steamboat Resort (Instagram: @SteamboatResort, Twitter: @SkiSteamboat, Facebook: Steamboat Resort).

The contest is open through April 30, 2015, and entries will be judged according to originality and creativity, communication of contest theme and overall appeal. Voting for the top photos will take place on Steamboat Resort’s Facebook page after the contest has closed.

Monthly prizes will be awarded throughout the contest, and the grand-prize winner will receive a Steamboat 15-day pass for the 2015-16 season.

Ski Town Lions Club to host pancake breakfast Friday

The Steamboat Ski Town Lions Club will host its annual Fourth of July Pancake Breakfast at Little Toots Park, 12th and Yampa streets, from 7 to 10 a.m. Friday.

This all-you-can-eat feast historically kicks off the day of festivities, with griddles cooling down just as parade activities start. In addition to pancakes and all the toppings, the breakfast offers French toast, sausage, scrambled eggs and an assortment of breakfast beverages. Cost is $8 for adults and $6 for seniors age 65 and older and youth 10 and younger. All proceeds benefit local community projects and needs.

According to longtime member and breakfast organizer Bob Rowe, Steamboat’s Lions Club has been serving up the July Fourth breakfast for 50 to 60 years. Last year’s feast was among the largest, with the club serving 840 breakfasts. This year’s shopping list includes 100 pounds of pancake mix, 150 pounds of sausage, 30 loaves of bread for French toast, 25 gallons of orange juice and fixings for 600 cups of coffee. Rowe estimates his fellow Lions Club volunteers will flip 1,500 pancakes on Friday.

The Steamboat Ski Town Lions Club is Steamboat’s oldest civic organization, chartered in 1923. The group meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 11:30 a.m. at The Egg & I. For more information, visit
