STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO—The 2010 Steamboat Springs Parade of Homes, presented by Colorado Group Realty, will take place Saturday, August 7. The self-guided tour from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. provides an opportunity to visit stunning mountain properties located in five different Steamboat neighborhoods. Tickets are $20 per person with proceeds benefiting the Colorado Group Realty Charitable Foundation.
“These residences represent a variety of styles exhibited in mountain homebuilding,” said Bart Kounovsky, board member of the Charitable Foundation. “Participants will experience a slice of mountain living not usually seen by the public.”
The seven homes ranging from 3,095 to 11,823 square feet will also showcase five different areas: the South Valley, the Eagle Ridge area, Ski Trails, Burgess Creek, and the Lower Mountain. South of Steamboat Springs, the South Valley offers sweeping views with a mix of ranches and fine estates. Perched on the ridge, at Eagle Ridge, residents enjoys walk to skiing. Rendezvous Trails sits high above Burgess Creek and Ski Time Square with unobstructed views of the ski mountain. Ski Trails is poised to take advantage of the South Valley views and offers some residences ski in access. The Lower Mountain area is nestled between the ski mountain entrance and the Yampa River.
The Steamboat Springs Parade of Homes is scheduled to coincide with one of the most anticipated events of the summer, The Wine Festival at Steamboat. The Wine Festival at Steamboat features several events throughout the weekend including three Grand Tastings, wine, beer and whiskey seminars, some of them integrated with hiking, biking, trail riding, fly fishing and reading. Over 800 wines can be tasted throughout the festival.
In addition to The Wine Festival at Steamboat, Parade of Homes participants can also enjoy a variety of summer events and activities that exemplify the Steamboat Springs lifestyle including shopping, art galleries, music concerts, rodeo and much more.
“The Steamboat Springs Parade of Homes will be a treat, and perhaps even the highlight of the weekend,” said Kounovsky. “All proceeds will go to deserving charities within the Yampa Valley.”
