The editorial board includes two community representatives and four members of the newspaper staff.

Newspaper staff members on the board include publisher, Suzanne Schlicht, editor, Lisa Schlichtman, assistant editor, Jim Patterson, and veteran reporter, Tom Ross. Current community representatives on the board are Diane Moore and Carl Steidtmann.

The editorial board formulates the Our View opinions expressed on the ViewPoints page of the newspaper Wednesdays and Sundays. The editorial board meets at 10:30 a.m. Thursdays for one hour.

Readers interested in serving on the editorial board should email a letter and resume to Schlichtman at or send it to Steamboat Today, PO Box 774827, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477. Letters also may be dropped off at Steamboat Today’s office at 1901 Curve Plaza. Call Schlichtman at 970-871-4221 with questions.

Event funding applications accepted through Tuesday

Applications for city-allocated special event funding are now available and will be accepted through Tuesday, Jan. 5. Special event funding provides sponsorship dollars to support special events taking place in non-ski season months.

There have been updates and changes made to the process, so applicants are encouraged to carefully read through the guidelines and application materials. Specifically, funding is no longer required to go toward marketing.

Presentations will be made to the Special Event Funding Committee — made up of Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association staff, chamber board members and city council members — in January. Visit to download the application.
