Timbers Resorts has opened One Steamboat Place, its latest luxury resort development at the base of majestic Mt. Werner in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

The slope-side development is the cornerstone for the redevelopment of Steamboat Springs, a historic town in Northwest Colorado that dates back to the mid-19th Century and has long been known for its hot springs, cattle ranching and winter sports.

"We are thrilled to unveil One Steamboat Place, a one-of-a-kind residential experience located at the gondola," said David A. Burden, CEO & Founder of Timbers Resorts. "We are excited to be a new part of this great community. We picked Steamboat as a destination because of its apparent sense of hospitality, small town charm and natural beauty. We hope to be a big part of keeping it that way."
