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.

A Fantastic Family Getaway to Steamboat

Maria Patterson

Great trip and location!

Our family of 5 had a great time. It was our first time skiing out west and Steamboat was the perfect place because it was not too crowded and it was mostly families with kids. The Sheraton was remodeled in 11/2017 and our 2 bdrm unit was great! Comfy beds and cute kitchen. Luxurious bathrooms and great views. It is the closest resort to the lift so it was truly ski in/out!

Perfect Ski Destination!

We just spent a wonderful week skiing with our ski club at Steamboat Springs. The ski resort facilities were excellent, with beautifully groomed slopes, and terrain for all levels. It was easy to get around the mountain and the food was excellent, especially at Ragnars. The staff working at the resort was warm and helpful and clearly proud of Steamboat. Kudos to all a nd thanks for a wonderful experience!

Steamboat is one of the best resorts in Colorado

We had a great experience in Steamboat. It was our first trip there. Even though they were low on snow for the Winter when we were there. The skiing & conditions were still great. A bonus was the Winter Carnival. We went into town to see them pulling kids down the main street by horses. Lots of fun.

Go every year- love it-wish there was more snowfall this year but still great time experienced
Jeff Treadwell

Great ski town.

Steamboat still has a nice mountain, short lift lines on Superbowl weekend plenty of dining options. The food on the mountain is good and like every mountain...expensive.

A good time at Steamboat!

We were a little worried about the lack of snow for our mid January ski trip to Steamboat. With only about half their normal snow total we didnt know what to expect! What we found was a beautiful ski resort 98% open and wonderfully maintained slopes. Lift lines were non existant and the mountain staff was extremely helpful and polite. The cowboy theme added to the fun. I would like to say our night life was a blast but to be perfectly honest with the first lifts opening at 8:30 a.m. we pretty much skied till we dropped. .

<p>Over the past couple of years, Steamboat has become one of my favorite ski towns.</p><p>In fact, I find myself going back to enjoy the town and the mountain at least once or twice a year. My love of Steamboat started seven years ago when I spent my bachelorette weekend there with my best girlfriends during Steamboat's Winter Carnival. We got buried with three feet of fresh snow during our visit. We thoroughly enjoyed skiing through the fresh powder and the aspen tree glades that Steamboat is so well known for, and the dining and nightlife of downtown Steamboat kept us celebrating late into the night. This March, I had an opportunity to experience Steamboat for what so many of my clients have come to appreciate about it. My best friend, who also joined me for my bachelorette extravaganza 7 years back, and I decided that it would be the perfect spot to celebrate my 40th birthday, so we packed up the cars and headed there with our husbands and kiddos, ages 4 - 6. During our visit, we stayed in a nicely appointed three bedroom unit at the Lodge at Steamboat. It was furnished perfectly for our two families.</p><p>There were two bedrooms set up for couples each with an ensuite bath. The kid's room also had an ensuite bath and it was located farthest from the living room, which was convenient for enjoying some adult time after the kids went to bed. The furnishings were lovely. There was a flat screen TV in the living room along with in each bedroom. There was plenty of seating for our group throughout the living and dining areas and the kitchen was nicely stocked with everything we needed to enjoy meals in. The kids loved the Lodge's outdoor heated pool, and the parents enjoyed the ease of getting everyone to/from the slopes, which was less than a 10 minute walk from the condo, with kids in tow. The Lodge at Steamboat also had a guest courtesy shuttle available.</p><p>On day one we decided to treat ourselves by signing all of the kids up for ski school, so that we could have an adult ski day. All three kids had a blast in ski school and we parents truly enjoyed having a day off. The drop off and pick up process for our 4 year old was smooth and efficient. Our son loved his instructor, got a report card at the end of the day, and he couldn't wait to ski with us after his lesson wrapped up to show us what he had learned. My friend's twin 6 & 12; year olds skied all over the mountain in their lesson. Later on that evening, they loved watching how fast they went and how much terrain they had covered via the gps app that tracked their progress. </p><p>Day two we had a family ski day. It was wonderful being able to ski the whole mountain across green terrain with our 4 year old level 2+ riper. After spending the morning skiing the excellently groomed cruiser runs off the Sunshine lift, we stopped for lunch at the on mountain Rendezvous Lodge. We were all impressed by the wide array of food and beverage choices at Rendezvous. The kids got their much loved mac&n cheese while the adults opted for entrees such as green curry shrimp and chicken lo mein noodles. The portions were large and we felt the pricing was reasonable, especially considering how much on mountain dining typically costs for a standard burger and fries. After skiing off our hearty lunch, we wrapped up our day by enjoying a thrilling ride on the Mountain Coaster. What a blast! Our whole group was hooting and hollering as we raced our way down and around the tracks. After two big ski days we all were ready to sooth our muscles before driving back home, so we headed down to the Old Town Hot Springs located in downtown Steamboat and enjoyed a relaxing morning of soaking in the outdoor hot pools. The Old Town Hot Springs can be accessed for a daily fee. The facility has a number of outdoor soaking and swimming pools, water slides (open in the afternoon only), fitness facilities, massage services, and they even offer affordably priced child care options. It was the perfect way to wrap up our 3 night, 3 day getaway to Steamboat.</p>
