The Big Snow Dance 

The Friends of the Yampa is proud to host our annual family friendly, Big Snow Dance fundraiser on Saturday, November 19th at the Sweetwater Grill (5:30 till close). We invite you to support us in our effort to protect and enhance the environmental and recreational integrity of the Yampa River, its basin, and its tributaries through stewardship, advocacy, partnerships, and education.

Along with the silent and live auctions, there will be live music from Steamboat local bands Ragweed and the Old Town Pickers, plenty of dancing and socializing from a diverse group of Northwest Colorado residents. A small entry fee ($20) will include dinner, drink ticket and a great evening of dancing and celebrating the onset of winter.

The Yampa River in downtown Steamboat Springs especially is one of Northwest Colorado’s most important environmental and recreational resources. Tourism to the Valley is an important economic generator and the river is a central part to this economy and the lifestyle that makes Steamboat Springs and Northwest Colorado so special. As more and more people venture in and along the river, it cannot support itself and needs groups like the Friends of the Yampa to maintain both it’s ecological integrity and recreational resources. All proceeds from The Big Snow Dance will go directly to river based work.

The Big Snow Dance is FOY’s largest fundraiser of the season and we welcome your contribution in any way you can. Donation items for the silent and live auction during the Big Snow Dance will help fund river restoration and improvements outlined in the Yampa River Management Plan and the Yampa River Structural Master Plan. You can sign up here on our website for donation items. Thank you.
