Steamboat offers the perfect mix of real western heritage, genuine small town friendliness and the sophistication of a world class ski and snowboard resort. Steamboat is easily accessed through Denver and the local Hayden airport only 35kms from the slopes. With 2,965 acres of permitted terrain, only on a mountain this big could there be such tremendous variety: long and wide cruiser runs, tree skiing, open glades, bumps, snowboard terrain parks, race courses and even kids-only terrain. Gladed areas with “Champagne Powder” are Steamboat’s particular claim to fame. Steamboat has over 100 bars and restaurants, hot thermal springs, a variety of fun and exciting winter activities and genuine western hospitality.
