lot story

Evidence of humans in the Yampa River Valley stretches back to the shadowy beginnings of humans in the Americas.  As early as 10,700 years ago, prehistoric people lived and hunted in the area around Steamboat Springs. The Ute people’s country eventually extended from the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains west into Utah as far as Salt Lake City. Originally drawn to Steamboat for the sacred waters and hot springs, the Utes hunted and food-gathered in small groups for most of the year. The band that lived in the areas around Marabou and Steamboat were called the “Yampatika” Utes- named after a local plant related to the carrot. To this day the hot springs and sacred waters of Steamboat Springs are still visited by the Ute people.

Occasionally artifacts such as arrowheads can sometimes still be found on the ridges along Marabou. Hidden in the clay, they are a reminder of what a special place this is.
