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?

 A:         NEVER! 

____________

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.
