West Steamboat generally refers to all neighborhoods on the western edge of city limits, extending out to Steamboat II, Heritage Park and Silver Spur. These neighborhoods consist primarily of single family homes that are often at a more affordable price point than what is available in town and on the mountain. These residential areas are home to full-time, year-round residents. West Steamboat is home to the newly built Bear River Bike and Skate Park as well as the Steamboat Springs Community Center. There is also a 9-hole golf course and the private Christian Heritage School.

West Steamboat follows the Highway 40 corridor along the western edge of Steamboat Springs to the town of Hayden. The town of Hayden is located 20 miles west of Steamboat Springs and is home to the Yampa Valley Regional Airport, making West Steamboat an incredibly convenient place to call home for frequent travelers or those who expecting to host a steady stream of guests in their new mountain home.
