The world knows Steamboat as Ski Town USA©. If you want the best ski vacation of your life, there's no other place like it on earth. Steamboat sits seven thousand feet up in the Colorado Rockies at the foot of massive Mt. Werner. It's a ranching town that never strays very far from its roots. In Steamboat the Old West is alive and well and it sets us apart from every other ski resort in the world.
Many of the same families that founded Steamboat have been ranching this valley for more than 100 years. Kids in Steamboat learn to ski about the same time they learn to ride a horse. No other town in North America has produced more winter Olympians than Steamboat Springs. Maybe it's the town, or the mountain, or the huge dump of Champagne Powder© mother nature covers us with every winter... whatever it is, it makes this the perfect place to strap on skis or a snowboard and have the time of your life.
Steamboat is a first-class destination resort. When you're not burning down the mountain or ripping the new Mavericks SuperPipe you can enjoy cross country skiing or snowmobiling through the mountains and valleys that surround Steamboat. The other side of winter in Steamboat includes worldclass dining, a broad spectrum of night life, sophisticated spas to pamper and sooth every muscle and pore and, of course shopping, shopping and more shopping from cowboy boots to bronze sculpture. Throughout the winter Steamboat hosts a litany of special events from the annual Cowboy Downhill to the oldest Winter Carnival west of the Mississippi.
