Routt County Roots

October 9, 2013

What do you get when you combine the CMC Culinary Program with the CMC Sustainability Program? You get one amazing CMC power duo. What do you get when you combine one amazing CMC power duo with local non profit organizations and local food suppliers? You get a local food revolution.

I was lucky enough to be part of an amazing collaborative event between some major players in the Steamboat community and this video sums up how CMC is already taking its new degrees to new frontiers. The following video is called “Yampa Valley Roots – Episode 2” and its here to change the world.

Fasten your seat-belts.


Perseid Meteor Shower

August 21, 2013

Once a year, the Perseids descend upon our planet and put on a lovely show for those with a dark enough sky to enjoy it.

This year, myself and my friend Gabriel T Rogers spent three days sleeping the woods chasing the most amazing angles of the meteor shower.

I ran into a CMC student (Yampa Valley College at the time) from the 1960’s and he was kind enough to let me interview him! This was right before the infamous Diamond Hitch Parade.


The Winter Carnival is a hallmark Steamboat event that is more than twice the age of the ski resort. It was started by the ranching community back in 1913 to bring people the community together after a long winter.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Winter Carnival and the following video is of the  Children’s Ski Jouring event. This event is one of the most popular and it includes horses towing children down main street at high speeds.


A Powder Day in Steamboat

February 15, 2013

I had a chance to take my camera down to the base of Steamboat Mountain and interview some people on the epic CMC Powder. I also ran into CMC Students Mikey, Aaron and Darcy and they made it clear of how deep the snow was.
