Super Seniors: Active seniors embody mountain-town vitality

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — If you hang out in Steamboat Springs for very long, you’ll notice the town is full of active senior citizens.

Dozens of people 75 and older still ski, mountain bike, lift weights and work out more vigorously than people decades younger than them. They are involved in local service clubs, they volunteer to assist with community events, they serve on boards, and they take time to enjoy all the incredible events our town has to offer, from live music to opera to symphony to theater.

In honor of our booming senior population, the Steamboat Pilot & Today asked readers to tell us about their favorite seniors over the age of 75, and then we asked these Super Seniors to share their secrets to living a long and healthy life.
