Tucked away in Colorado is a small town unlike any other
A place where western heritage and genuine friendliness are as honored as the values of a time gone by. And a place where not a whole lot has changed in the last hundred years. It’s just that now, mixed in with the Stetson hats and cowboy boots, is the sophistication of a world-class resort. Our western heritage, six peaks of world-class terrain, and family programs rated the best in the west by SKI Magazine, continue to set Steamboat apart from every other ski resort.
Whether you’re stepping foot into a local pub, one of our charming boutiques, or stepping off the gondola, the reception is the same – warm. But the down home genuine friendliness is only half the reason people choose to vacation here. Nestled 7,000 feet up in the Colorado Rockies, Steamboat is one of North America’s largest ski mountains. With 142 trails, 3600 vertical feet, and nearly 3,000 skiable acres, its six peaks are filled with world-class groomed cruisers, bumps, steeps, open meadows, legendary tree skiing, and Mavericks, North America’s longest superpipe.
