Small town. Big mountain. Steamboat’s Western hospitality is as famous as the Champagne Powder® snow that covers the six peaks that tower over downtown Steamboat Springs. The skiing and boarding are legendary — groomed cruisers, bumps, steeps, terrain parks, open meadows and the best tree skiing on the planet. Visitors truly appreciate Steamboat’s wide range of hotels and condominiums, too, ranging from 5 star luxury residences to humble lodges, with plenty of ski-in/ski-out options. Guests also celebrate the exciting Steamboat après-ski and dining scene, with over 100 bars and restaurants and a vibrant craft beer culture. Bring the family – Kids Ski Free in Steamboat! – or enjoy a sophisticated grownup holiday in the snow.
