Visit Steamboat Springs, CO.

Nestled in the northern valley of the Yampa River, Steamboat Springs is a charming mix of ski-resort destination and off-beat mountain town. Named for the steamboat engine-like sounds that the area’s natural hot springs emit, this town is known for its numerous opportunities for skiing, snowshoeing, and other wintertime fun. While early settlers used these items as a main method of winter transportation, ski jumping and slashing down the slopes soon became a popular pastime that proved to be a boon to the local economy, cementing Steamboat Springs as a desirable destination for skiers of all levels.

New to skiing? Not a problem. The Howelsen Hill Ski Area (named for and founded by an earlier popularizer of winter sports in the area) has slopes ranging from easy to difficult, as well as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing options. Moderately experienced skiers have a range of slopes from which to choose, including Emerald Mountain Quarry, Fish Creek Falls, and Uranium Mine. Looking for an expert-level challenge will lead you to the Rabbit Ears Pass Trails. Proceed with caution.

Steamboat Springs may be known for its world-class skiing, but it has much more to offer its visitors. Don’t assume this Rocky Mountain-nestled town is only a destination for snow-sports enthusiasts. Wintertime visitors are invited to enjoy the annual Winter Carnival for a glimpse of Steamboat Springs culture, traditions, and history. You can watch expert ski racing and breathtaking ski jumping as well as dog sledding, and chariot races up and down the town's main street. Don't miss the beautiful light shows on both Howelsen Hill and Mount Werner as well as the big parade. This yearly festival celebrates the town and you don't have to strap into a set of skis to join the fun. Cozy up to a fire after a long day of entertainment and enjoy the peace and quiet of this small town destination.
