Steamboat’s newest, high-tech office building — an 8,100-square-foot marvel complete with ski locker, exercise room, indoor/outdoor kitchen, and conference room with NANA wall door system leading to a fourth-floor deck overlooking Mount Werner — is home to Deer Park Road Corp., a location-neutral investment firm with funds ranking in Barron’s Top 100. While the company can be based anywhere it wants to, founder and president Michael Craig-Scheckman is smitten with Steamboat for its lifestyle and business infrastructure — including airport proximity and Internet access. All this allows it to conduct business at the base of Mount Werner as easily as if it was on Wall Street.

Its new headquarters are a snowball’s throw from the base of the Wildhorse Gondola, allowing its employees and visiting clients to lay tracks when off the time clock.

“We wanted something so all our departments could be together, and access to the ski area was important,” says Craig-Scheckman, adding the building was designed to be warm and welcoming, yet modern. “I didn’t want something sterile or cookie-cutter,” he says. “While we weren’t trying to make an architectural statement with the building, we do have investors from all over the world come and visit. It’s a balance. While from Steamboat’s standpoint it might be high-end, from that of the rest of the world it’s in the middle.”

That said, it’s as nice an office building as you’ll likely find in Routt County. “It’s truly a Class A office building that’s unique to Steamboat,” says Brandt Vanderbosch, owner of Vertical-Arts, which led the design team. “Nothing like this has been done for an office building in town before.”
