"505 Southwestern has always been known for its premium green chile, sauces, and salsa, and our guests are in for a treat when they visit our Colorado destinations this year," said Ryan Blanchard, Director of Brand partnerships, Alterra Mountain Company.
In addition to 505 Southwestern products being integrated onto restaurant menus across the resort, the Steamboat Taco Beast, a snow-cat-turned-food-truck, will feature 505 salsas, sauces and green chile to top the four varieties of trail tacos.
Launched during the 2018 season, Steamboat has made headlines for its Taco Beast. The resort's version of a taco truck, the Taco Beast moves around the mountain offering tacos to guests at various locations. The Taco Beast announces its location daily via social media, much like food truck counterparts down on the streets of major cities, and often sells out of the popular tacos at lunch.
"From our passionate customers here in Colorado to the guests that come from all over the world to visit Steamboat, people everywhere are falling in love with 505 green chile as their favorite new condiment," said Ted Gardner, President of 505 Southwestern. "Our products are an ideal fit with food offerings at ski resorts, and we especially love how Steamboat's innovative Taco Beast will feature 505 on its taco and burritos."
"Steamboat has been one of my favorite ski resorts for years," said Rob Holland, Executive Chairman of 505. "It's a soulful resort and town with a focus on authenticity and mountain culture. 505 fits in perfectly."
