The community of Steamboat Springs has long been a favored destination for many local travelers and tourists. With the arrival of the Steamboat Ski Resort in the 1960’s, word spread instantly about this mountain town that was steeped in Western hospitality and traditions, and that just so happened to have one of the best ski resorts in the world.
Since then, Steamboat Springs has warmly welcomed visitors and new residents from all walks of life. It’s this hospitality that makes Steamboat special—of course, the breathtaking mountain landscape and endless year-round activities aren’t half bad, either.
Recognized internationally for its Champagne Powder® snow, Olympic heritage and authentic Western character, Steamboat Springs sits 160 miles northwest of Denver, one and a half hours from Vail, and twenty minutes from the nearest airport.
Steamboat Ski Resort offers six peaks and nearly 3,000 acres of world-class terrain. Ski or ride Steamboat's famous tree runs, steeps, bumps or groomers, or try a soak in the legendary natural hot springs. Ride snowmobiles along the continental divide, relax in a horse-drawn sleigh, or enjoy the majestic views of the Rocky Mountains from a hot-air balloon.
Clean mountain air, no interstate traffic, miles of open space and views, fabulous restaurants and local boutiques are what make Steamboat Springs different from any other resort town in Colorado. The Steamboat Ski Area, Downtown Steamboat, Howelsen Hill Ski Area, Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, Rodeo Grounds, Yampa River, Old Town Hot Springs and Fish Creek Falls are some of the attractions that make it so unique and special.
