When you think about Steamboat Springs, many things come to mind, and skiing is near the top of the list. Here in the northwest Rockies the dry climate creates a light airy snowfall dubbed Champagne Powder®. This particular breed of snow entices even the most discerning skiers and riders across the globe.
The Steamboat Ski Resort is known internationally for its excellent snow, scenic slopes, and western charm. Fortunately, this unique mountain getaway has a nearby airport in Hayden, central highway access, and major shuttles running daily from Denver to Steamboat. Once in Steamboat, the curse of the Yampa Valley keeps travelers returning again and again.
Steamboat averages about 300 days of sunshine every year and at the same time averages a remarkable snowfall level of 345 inches per year. The resort offers full-service amenities to help locals and visitors alike enjoy the most the resort has to offer. With a professional ski and snowboard school, guided mountain tours, notable restaurants, and children’s day camp programs in winter and summer the resort plays a massive role in the community.
Recently the resort launched a Mountain Watch program which is a high-tech tracking system for families and friends to keep track of each other while on the mountain. The service is the first of its kind and sets standards for safety for all other resorts. The resort continues to lead the way in technology, safety, and visitor satisfaction with progressive, creative programs and local solid organization.
