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 accommodations” 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.
