Employees with Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation will have free COVID-19 testing available to them once a month this summer. It’s part of a partnership with the Routt County Public Health Department. Current employees can get in touch with HR for details. Other businesses in Routt County are also welcome to participate in testing partnerships. Just reach out to the Public Health department.

The Steamboat Gravel bike race had to be canceled this year due to the COVID-19 concerns. Instead, race organizers are holding an SBT Virtual race, from major cities. It’s free for anyone to take part in the virtual event, but they can also donate to support some local groups like the Boys & Girls Club of Steamboat, and the cycling team for Winter Sports Club. Here’s event organizer Amy Charity.

Charity says partners and sponsors are also excited about the SBT Virtual event and they hope next year’s race will be bigger and better than ever.

Fireworks will be flying over Steamboat Lake State Park on the 4th of July, if enough money is raised. The park is trying to raise $10,000 to have the display. Link to donate: https://www.friendsofcoloradostateparks.com/fund-for-colorado?fbclid=IwAR3Vb5Fms2jTtLZp6Tj4k65mHoSvn4ESNS1AdygXY89of-W69o8Iwl22kGo
