Media Hosting Policy
We welcome visits by media representatives on assignment and are glad to provide assistance to make your job easier.
Complimentary product, including lift tickets and rental equipment, is available to media members on assignment specific to travel, Steamboat, Colorado and skiing/snowboarding upon approval from the Steamboat PR department based on availability. We typically require a letter of assignment on company letterhead from your editor, publisher, news director or producer or publication that has accepted your story pitch for publication, that includes a date when your piece is expected to run. We also ask that you send your story once it has been published. To allow for proper vetting and planning, members of the press and fellow Public Relations professionals shall make inquiries a month prior to requests. Last minute requests may not be approved; the PR department may decline any request.
Complimentary and discounted products for additional guests and journalists on vacation are evaluated on a case-by-case scenario and usually are not offered. The PR department will determine what is offered to each journalist based on dates requested, employment with established media outlet, etc.
Journalists requesting lodging at the Steamboat Grand Hotel must be covering the hotel for media purposes. Steamboat Ski Resort does not operate other lodging outlets and journalists inquiring about other properties shall make those requests directly to the lodging property.
Steamboat Ski Resort & Corporation owns and operates the ski resort in Steamboat and the Steamboat Grand Hotel. Other entities and activities that are not affiliated with the resort may not offer complimentary or discounted rates to visiting media and the PR department is not responsible for providing complimentary product not affiliated with the resort. Media members may request complimentary product from other outlets. In some cases the PR department can assist with making connections.
Providing the best experience for our guests is paramount and therefore, we do not offer complimentary media product during peak periods including Thanksgiving, Christmas, the New Year, MLK Weekend, President's Day Weekend and Easter (Spring Break periods may apply). In some instances a media rate might be available during peak period, requests need to be provided with at least one month’s notice to be considered for media rates.
