Skiing Steamboat Ski Resort

One of Colorado’s snowfall leaders, the Steamboat skiing is almost always incredible. Combine its 350 annual inches with state-of-the-art grooming capabilities and you can imagine that skiing cruisers at Steamboat is among the world’s best. Steamboat’s terrain is well dispersed, allowing skiers of all levels to explore the mountain, and even ski together. Families with beginners to experts will love the fact that they can each enjoy their ideal terrain and then meet back up at one of Steamboat’s lifts and enjoy quality time as they ride the chair. The terrain between Sunshine Express and Sundown Express offers something for nearly everyone: beginner, intermediate and expert. Intermediates and experts can easily access the backside of the mountain—Morningside Park—and all of its well-spaced tree and steeps skiing. 

Beginner skiers will delight in the many shorter beginner trails off of the Bashor Lift, which easily leads back to the base area. There are also plenty of sustained beginner groomers perfect for getting the legs in ski shape. Intermediates, too, have many exceptionally long and well-groomed trails to choose from, in addition to the advanced intermediate runs off of the Pony Express Lift to test their skills on. Expert skiers on the hunt for extreme terrain will find they can’t stay out of Christmas Tree Bowl’s steep glades and well-preserved powder.

Steamboat Resort and Steamboat Springs

We were fortunate to have several inches of fresh snowfall during our ski vacation, which definitely impacts our impression of Steamboat Springs. However, beyond the weather, the hospitality across the city was top notch. Regardless of whether we were talking to a local resident or resort staff, everyone is delighted about tourism in their city and how they can keep it growing.

Travel through the city was very easy with both the resort shuttle system as well as the city bus system. Safe, reliable, and timely.

We explored many restaurants both downtown and at the mountain resort and found all of our meals to be delicious. Weather you're craving upscale dining, ethnic food or a simple burger, you can find quality choices.
Prices are consistent with a resort area. A little on the high side but not unreasonable, especially given the quality of product and service.

Unreal Experience

Several friends and I booked our Steamboat Springs trip through ski.com and cannot say enough about the experience. If you're looking for a true ski town that not only has a beautiful mountain but also a great community of people, then steamboat is the place for you

Outstanding January Ski Vacation

We loved our trip to Steamboat! Nice easy drive from Hayden Airport. Friendly people all around. Great places to eat and of course the skiing was great. Liked the laid back atmosphere! We'll definitely be coming back and would recommend Steamboat to anyone.

Steamboat Excellence

Steamboat Springs does a lot for the skiing community that other resorts don't even try. Simply put you will have a great time with the 165 trails to pick from. There is something for all skill and age levels. Tree skiing to groomed runs and several terrain parks to choose from.
The ski area is only a 30 minute drive from the Hayden airport and there are free bus shuttles from the area to town. The residents are very friendly and are great with their Western hospitality.

Steamboat

Overall a good resort. Mountain layout makes it difficult to get around. Lacked mountain ambassadors at the top of lifts to provide guidance and recommendations. Poor trail signs did not provide adequate direction to lifts or on mountain dining. Not much near mountain shopping or restaurants. Hard to get a feel for the base area

Friendly Steamboat

I went to Steamboat in 2009 and loved it. I was accompanied by my son and his wife. We all had a great time skiing that year as there was a great deal of new (and old) snow. We went again this January - 2012. The snow was marginal, but the trails were well-groomed and we had a good time with our favorite sport.

I injured my knee on the slopes in 2009. I was impressed by how well I was cared for by the ski patrol and people at the local clinic. The staff at our lodging (Trappeur's Crossing) were especially helpful in transporting me around and providing encouragement. Of all the places I have skied, Steamboat is the most friendly and accommodating. I recommend it to anyone who wants an enjoyable and stress-free ski vacation.

Steamboat is still a favorite ski destination for our family!

We have skied Steamboat before Gondolas and before Gondola Square. After 18 years, we have returned, and we were not disappointed. The ski slopes have the best wide runs for the beginners, and now offer special attractions for boarders, too. We always enjoyed downtown Steamboat because of the well preserved town. There are still some decent restaurants too. The staff at Sport Stalker are THE FRIENDLIEST anywhere! We highly recommend them for renting your gear.

Steamboat Springs perfect family vacation

We took our 10 and 4 year old to Steamboat Springs and it was a fantastic family vacation! There was tons of snow, the mountain was fantastic and it wasn't too crowded. Our kids had never skiied and loved ski school and the coaches were fabulous. We found everyone at ski school to be very caring and accomodating. In fact, every person that worked at Steamboat that we dealt with was friendly and helpful. The town was close by and very cute. There were plenty of restaurants and we also had a great time tubing and going on a sleigh ride.

We LOVED Steamboat Springs

My daughters, Emily 6 and Madison 12, had never been in snow or real snow were from Southwest Louisiana. We fly to Hayden Co, and took a shuttle to our resort which was at the foot of the mountain in a In & Out resort. Sking was great we watched from our balancy, walked everywhere, and the Gondala was outside our door. The public bus was outside our door. Food great, veiws breathless, and very very very family friendly. We had a blast can't wait to go back next year. The whole experience was wonderful. Ski.com was very knowledgable and a very good value. Our agent was great.
