So what has Steamboat got to offer, you may ask.

Plenty is the answerer! More so, when there are lots of powder which fortunately happens very often. Not as chic as Aspen or as extensive as Vail, but the steamboat has a character and a heart of its own. It makes Steamboat a real ski town like Wild West style. It is a genuine American Old West Heritage and unlike other resorts, Steamboat offers over 200km of skiing, 165 pistes (or trails), 25 lifts & world-class chalet accommodation. It’s the third largest mountain in Colorado and is consistently ranked in the top 10 of all North American ski resorts and voted the top family resort for many years. Fly into Denver, Eagle or closer still into Hayden and sample one of the best ski locations in the US.

Also known as Ski Town USA, Steamboat offers fabulous hot springs to soothe those aches and pains away. Wow. Awesome. A big bonus for people who suffer any altitude problems, as Steamboat is located at an altitude lower than its compatriots. Despite the low altitude, Steamboat is very snow sure, with huge snowfalls every year, averaging around 30ft annually. Learning to ski in such powder is a pure dream, but it’s easy to turn that into reality by booking soon! Winter 2010/11 season saw well over 10 metres of snow.

The terrain suits all levels, with some steep stuff in the back shutes to keep the adrenalin going. The long intermediate blue cruisers from the top are a mixture of excitement and enjoyment, as you speed down to the base, whizzing onto some groomed black runs and into some fabulous tree skiing, with few people to hassle you on the slopes. The views over the Yampa valley are wide and absolutely stunning. But take care ogling the views, as you are speeding on some of the superbly prepared slopes!!

Steamboat Chalets

Accommodation in Steamboat is divided into two connected sections; the Mountain Area and Downtown.  Steamboat offers a good choice of hotels, chalets, over 100 bars and restaurants, which though a little spread out, actually adds to the atmosphere. The attention to details at these steamboat chalets & hotels will make your stay a dream. Many are located in the excellent town, though it’s three miles from the slopes. You also have the resort village area right by the slopes offering more catering and drinking establishments.

Accommodations in Steamboat are of good quality, and offer a great choice of hotels or condos, or chalets to suit ANY budget, ranging from the excellent 5 star Steamboat Grand, through to the Steamboat Inn, private homes and stunning catered Steamboat chalets. Very family friendly both on and off piste, with many family offers including free skiing for the under 12s (one child free per adult pass and free ski hire per adult hirer) all season. One of the best family resorts in the world, and several travellers rebook our Steamboat holidays. Have a nice ski day!
