This spirited ski town just doesn’t quit, offering alpine — and culinary — adventures all year round.
Did Mother Nature concoct an outdoor playground and spa and, in 1874, a few lucky entrepreneurs decided to call it Steamboat Springs, Colorado? You’ll think so when considering the nature-made fun on tap in and around the mountains — offered all year round. Explore more than 170 trails at the Steamboat Ski Resort, which also offers a zip line, a mountain roller coaster and horseback riding. There are natural hot springs and the Yampa River for paddling and kayaking. And there’s a vast network of all-weather bike trails that helped this city earn its nickname, Bike Town USA. Even better, you’ll have no trouble fueling up for (and winding down after) your adventures at Steamboat’s 50-some restaurants and pubs.

This lively mini-metropolis offers art galleries and boutique shopping by day and a serious food (and pub) scene by night. And everywhere you turn, there’s another stunning vista, of the foothills, the mountains and the Yampa River, which threads through town.

One of Colorado’s top skiing destinations, the mountain offers terrain for every kind of skier and rider, from beginner to expert, as well as snow-free activities such as hiking, biking and even a zip line.

Plan Your Any-Season Weekend Escape to Steamboat Springs, Colorado
Discover Downtown Steamboat
Steamboat Springs boasts some 70 retail shops, 50 restaurants and a dozen galleries. Browse the walkable downtown streets, then either paddle the Yampa River or bike a riverside trail. In the winter, you can squeeze in a cross-country ski sesh — right in town — before dinner and a visit to a local whiskey maker.
Hit the Slopes
Take to the mountain for an activity-filled day, no matter the season. At the Steamboat Springs Resort, you can ski, board, hike, bike and even explore the slopes via zip line (or roller coaster). Get your après on at Timber & Torch, at the base of the mountain, then it’s back to town for dinner and a nightcap.
Relax at the Spa
Get in a little rest and relaxation at the hot spring pools, located in town and at an on-mountain spa. Then play a round of golf at a course close to town, where cross-country skis and snowshoes can be rented when snow covers the fairways. Enjoy your final Steamboat supper at the Laundry, a romantic restaurant housed in a former — you guessed it — laundromat.
