You Missed All the Fun!
The Steamboat Institute
Dinner on the Mountaintop
February 17, 2012
So, what did Ann think of Steamboat? Here is a short interview:
Q: What kinds of travel and leisure activities do you prefer when you need down-time?
A: I LIKE TO UNWIND BY WRITING AND RE-WRITING WEDDING VOWS FOR JOHN EDWARDS AND RIELLE HUNTER. I JUST FIND THIS RELAXING.
Q: Have you been to Steamboat Springs before?
Q: We imagine that you have many opportunities to travel around the US. What was behind your decision to come to Steamboat?
A: I WAS TOLD THERE WAS FREE SNOW.
Q: Do you have a favorite place to ski (if it’s not Steamboat after this week’s snow)?
A: OBVIOUSLY, IT’S STEAMBOAT NOW! (I HAVE AMAZING SKIING KARMA SO IT ALWAYS SNOWS WHEREVER I GO.) BEFORE THIS, IT WAS VAIL AND ASPEN.
Q: What is your impression of Steamboat Springs after this visit and how did it compare to what you were expecting?
A: FRANKLY, I EXPECTED TO SEE A LOT MORE STEAMBOATS. BUT THIS IS A GREAT PLACE.
Q: Did you have time to do other things in Steamboat off the mountain? What were the highlights?
A: YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY: “WHAT HAPPENS IN STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, STAYS IN STEAMBOAT SPRINGS”. OR AM I THINKING OF SOMEPLACE ELSE?
Q: What do you think about the Diamond Peak Penthouse (616) at One Steamboat Place, where you are staying?
A: TERRIFIC, EXCEPT I GOT LOST ONCE AND COULDN’T FIND THE KITCHEN ON MY IPHONE GPS.
Q: Moving Mountains manages rentals of the residence where you are staying, along with 22 private vacation homes in the mountain area. Is this your style of lodging?
A: YES, I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A “BREATHTAKING VIEWS, FOUR-STAR ACCOMODATIONS” KIND OF GAL.
Q: How was the evening at the top of the gondola? Any impressions of the Steamboat Institute or the people who attended the dinner?
A: AMAZING. IT’S BEEN ALL DOWNHILL SINCE THEN. I GUESS YOU HEAR THAT A LOT.
Q: Given the opportunity, would you return to Steamboat again?
A: YES! I THINK WE’VE ALL AGREED THAT I SHOULD BE AN ANNUAL SPEAKER FOR THE STEAMBOAT INSTITUTE.
