Coldwell Banker Takes Flight at the Steamboat Springs Balloon Rodeo

The weather could not have been more perfect. With a light rain around 5am, and the sun coming out just before the event, the grounds were moist and the sky was clear.

Karen and Mix Beauvais kept the western spirit of Steamboat Springs alive with their traditional western wear and even some horses!!

This year was Steamboat Springs’ 33rd Annual Balloon Rodeo, a unique experience where you can see dozens of balloons in the air at one time and maybe even get a ride in one! The balloons used to launch from our Meadows Parking Lot, however for the last few years the launch site has been from the picturesque Bald Eagle Lake. Spectators can walk, bike or take a shuttle from the Meadows Parking Lot provided free by the city.

Two of our agents John and Di James enjoyed the event with their young children at this family friendly Steamboat adventure.

Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties in Steamboat Springs sure knows how to have a good time!

clients care deeply,” said John James. “We were thrilled our first donations could go to the Routt County Humane Society. Diane had previously served on the Board and having two dogs ourselves, the work RCHS does to improve the welfare of the animals in the Yampa Valley is so important to us.”

 

Routt County Humane Society Co-President Maggie Smith commented on the campaign: “We are grateful to have a Realtor team in Steamboat to provide not only an opportunity for their clients to be a part of the donation through the James Team’s Back to the Boat program, but also generate exposure to the needs of animals through this program.”

 

The James Team at Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties is made up of John and Diane James who combine their talents to provide superior customer service and innovative marketing. Both are longtime residents of the Yampa Valley and with their two kids take advantage of all Steamboat has to offer. They also have two dogs and a bunny.
