Explore Steamboat Springs

Though you can certainly make the three-hour drive from Denver to Steamboat Springs, you don’t have to. Why travel harder when you could travel smarter by booking a Southwest flight? Getting into and around Steamboat Springs used to require skis or snowshoes. Thankfully, this is no longer the case—but you may want to strap on a pair of skis or a snowboard and enjoy the new slope options available when you arrive in this popular skiing destination.

The opportunity to enjoy quaint mountain town life is one of the draws of Steamboat Springs. However, quaint doesn’t mean sleepy. Or boring. Snow sports abound for wintertime visitors. You can choose from 18 different ski lifts and a multitude of ski trails that can accommodate both beginners and experts. Sign up for snowshoe or snowmobile tours, or take a horseback ride through a winter wonderland. If that's a little too adventurous, try a sleigh ride instead. Explore historic sights and local museums to learn about how integral to skiing history this small town has been. At the end of a long day on the slopes or in town, you can settle in by a warm fire and enjoy a delicious meal or hot drink.

Can you hear the bubble of the natural hot springs calling you? See what mountain life is like on a smaller scale with a visit to Steamboat Springs.
