About the Ski Resort

Steamboat Springs is located in northwest Colorado in the Routt National Forest of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. A perfect getaway for anyone and everyone.

Steamboat's western authenticity can be seen throughout the town in the working cattle ranches that still surround the resort, the locals' casual lifestyle and down home friendliness.

Steamboat's huge mountain (2,965 acres), offers exhilarating mogul fields, inviting tree runs, sparkling powder grounds and wide open groomed runs, all spilling from the top of the Continental Divide. During the ski season, Steamboat receives more than 335 inches of snow, creating some of the best Champagne PowderŪ skiing in the world.

The mountain is comprised of six peaks, 165 trails spread out over 2,965 acres served by 20 lifts, including four high-speed quad chairlifts and an 8-passenger gondola, rising 3,668 vertical feet.
"People used to take tonics and elixirs to cure what ailed them. Now they just take the gondola," says the website.

Gladed areas of Sunshine and Storm Peaks are Steamboat's particular claim to fame, with Champagne PowderŪ snow in the trees for the most avid powder hounds.
