Enjoy some champagne powder at its best
Steamboat has some of the best quality snow in Colorado, now widely known as ‘champagne powder’, as well as having a huge ski area to please all levels of skiers. Steamboat also has the second highest snow record in Colorado with an average 355 inches falling each year, resulting in a snow sure holiday. The lively base village of Steamboat is perfect after a long day of knee deep powder with a huge variety of bars and restaurants that will suit all tastes.
Spread over 3 mountains, the resort is especially good for intermediates and Steamboat boasts probably the best tree line skiing in Colorado. Being one of the quieter resorts in the region, you can often enjoy the pristine conditions with few other skiers around. Beginners will benefit from a well designed nursery slope at the mountain base and a high standard of tuition, allowing them to progress quickly and explore the terrain.
The bars and restaurants around the base provide Steamboat’s most lively après, with the Slopeside Grill particularly popular, though if you are looking for a night of live music then head down to the Tugboat. The old town of Steamboat just a short bus ride away provides more choice and the 8th Street Steakhouse is great for big social groups. Cat skiing, ice skating and snowmobiling are also available to create the perfect mix off the slopes. A ‘must’ is a visit to Strawberry Park Hot springs - three natural hot pools in a beautiful woodland setting, only eight miles from Steamboat itself, offering the perfect way to relax tired limbs.
