Steamboat is a world of Champagne Powder and carving dreams.
Steamboat is a genuine cowboy town with masses of character. The spirit of the Wild West is embedded in the resort, which has a big choice of terrain from easy riding greens to adventurous back country skiing and riding and it’s all covered by Steamboats famous Champagne Powder. There is something special for everyone, from novice to expert plus Kids Ski Free.
With just under 3000 skiable acres and around eight metres of snow falling in an average year, there is no lack of fresh stuff. Steamboat is known globally for deep, untouched powder that collects between the aspens and evergreens; creating tree skiing that is nothing short of legendary. Mount Werner is the most challenging with access to expert runs including double black diamond chutes. You’ll discover beautiful gladed runs and groomed cruisers in abundance, as well as steeps, bumps, terrain parks and open meadows filled with powder. Steamboat’s trails are grouped by amusing themes. Sunshine Peak offers fun cruisers like Day Break and High Noon and other clock-themed descents and Storm Peak intimidates with steep runs like Tornado and Hurricane and other big weather phenomena. Lift queues are rare because the layout naturally disperses skiers and riders over all six peaks and the lift system is state-of-the-art.
The on mountain facilities are brilliant, including two table service restaurants; one of these, Ragnar’s at Rendezvous Saddle is open for moonlit sleigh ride dinners. Steamboat offers amazing value for families with its Kids Ski Free, Kids Rent Free and fantastic ski & snowboard programs that are fun, affordable and effective.
Nestled right below this breathtaking mountain sits one of the most hospitable ski towns in the world. With over 100 restaurants and bars, the après ski scene is both diverse and lively.
Growing from a frontier town into a world-class ski resort and having sent more skiers to the Olympics than any other town in America, has earned Steamboat the nickname “Ski Town USA” where the untamed spirit of the American West remains very much alive.
