Difficulty Markers Difficulty Markers
Trail Difficulty Markings

Please be advised that a green circle, blue square, or black diamond trail at Steamboat is not necessarily the same as a green circle, blue square or black diamond trail at other resorts. The system is a relative rating of trails at each resort and does not compare trail difficulty between resorts. Skiers and Riders should begin with the easiest terrain and then move up in difficulty as their ability permits in order to understand the relative difficulty at Steamboat.

Steamboat is a smoke free resort. Smoking is not permitted in the base area, which includes all of the outdoor plazas of the Gondola Square shops, One Steamboat Place and the Bear River deck as well as on all lifts, in lift lines and at all on mountain facilities.
