Snow Country magazine rates Steamboat among the top five ski areas in the West. And Ski magazine says it has "the best tree skiing in the U.S." and also named it "the Best Family Friendly Ski Area". Famous for its “champagne powder”, this resort is a favorite for Olympic trainees. The mountain offers 3,670 vertical feet, 2,965 skiable acres of terrain, 20 lifts, and 354" average annual snowfall. All levels of skiers/boarders will have fun since the slopes are divided approximately with 20% beginner, 40% intermediate, and 40% advanced.
Besides a week of skiing, you will want to enjoy the charming town and the hot, hot springs (which Skiing magazine labels as the best hot springs at any ski resort). Other possible adventures include horseback riding and sleigh rides, ice skating, and cat powder skiing. Whether you choose Ski Time Square or other well-known dining spots, your apres ski and dining experience will be as memorable as your on-the-mountain one.
We’ll be staying at the The Lodge at Steamboat, conveniently located just a few blocks from the base of the Steamboat Ski Area. The property offers 2 and 3 bedroom options. Each condo features fully equipped kitchens, living areas with gas fireplaces, balconies or patios for enjoying the fresh mountain air, and free WiFi.
The Lodge features an on-site front desk in the clubhouse located at the entrance to the property. The clubhouse is a great place to gather around the fire and tell stories of the adventures of the day, or a place to meet for morning coffee before grabbing a shuttle to the mountain in the winter. There is also a business center and indoor hot tub conveniently located adjacent to the front desk area. The property also boasts an outdoor heated pool, BBQ areas and 4 outdoor hot tubs. Parking is free, so bring your vehicle or leave the driving to us and use our winter shuttle service to get around.
