Although it has earned the moniker of Ski Town, USA, for producing more winter Olympians than any other resort in the country, and has trademarked its 26 feet of average snowfall as "Champagne Powder," Steamboat Springs is a ski town second and a cowboy town first. Since the opening of the resort nearly 50 years ago, the city of Steamboat has encountered some impressive development, from après-ski bars and haute cuisine to a brand new promenade at the base of the gondola with a heated walkway, musical stage, and three-tiered ice castle. But its genuine Western heritage and hospitality, an homage to its cowboy roots, remain.
Regularly rated among the top resorts in the country for family programs and ski school, Steamboat is a world-class resort that maintains its Western heritage and laid-back feel.
Venture just 7 miles from town to Strawberry Park Hot Springs, where natural beauty and relaxation meet. Soothe your sore muscles here after a day on the slopes.
As a true cowboy town, there are a plethora of horseback riding trails and plenty of ranches where you can saddle up to explore the surrounding areas atop a trusty steed.
Summers in Steamboat Springs are mild, cool, and dry; fall is crisp with vibrant changing leaves; and spring is bright and breezy. Winter is exceptionally cold, with highs in the low 30s and plenty of snow for the area’s signature snow sports—Steamboat receives more than 150 feet of snowfall annually.
