The Home Ranch in Clark has sold, for $16.4 million dollars. It won’t be a luxury resort anymore in North Routt County, owns by the Stranahans. The new owners are Janet and Scott McFarlane. They plan to make the property a family compound while raising cattle and horses, with maybe some corporate and charitable events each year. The Home Ranch sits on 570 acres, with a 9,000-square-foot lodge, an historic barn, riding arena, greenhouse, and guest cabins.
City snowplows have had to get to work earlier this fall because of all of the snow in the Yampa Valley. Emergency, commercial corridors, and school routes get plowed first. Residential areas are next after that. There are 17 people who keep 86 miles of streets and alleys in Steamboat clear of snow. Lincoln Ave. gets plowed by the Colorado Department of Transportation since it is a federal highway. Winter parking restrictions are in effect which means no parking on the streets overnight.
Tourism numbers are up. The Colorado Tourism Office says a record 86.2 million people visited the Centennial State last year. That’s up just less than one percent from the year before. They say that travelers spend a record $22.3 billion dollars in the state last year, which was up 6.7 percent from 2017.
