Home Crush: Sustainable Colorado Cabin

This Colorado family has a long history with Steamboat Springs. Laurie Reed worked as a ski instructor here during college. After she and her husband, Dave, married, they came back frequently with their two sons. When it came time to build a home, they wanted it on the hills they loved so much.

A Moonlight Dinner for Yurtaholics

Crested Butte is one of the most iconic, authentically Western ski destinations in North America, but the residents of this tiny town are also known for doing things in the name of fun that others might consider somewhat dubious. Weird parades? Festivals involving the burning of a ginormous “Grump” effigy? Costumed nordic ski marathons? So it comes as no surprise that a moonlight cross-country ski or snowshoe trek to eat in a yurt is considered a good time here.
