Before And After
Hard work on the slopes inevitably conjures up a ravenous appetite, and whether you’re craving a brick-oven pizza, some authentic western barbeque, jet-fresh sushi, or anything in between, Steamboat’s got you covered. A little excitement on the slopes is likely to have the grown-ups thirsting for a drink to take the edge off, and with a bevy of bars all over the resort, you’re not going to go thirsty. Do you have kids that aren’t avid skiers or who need a change of fun? The Coca Cola adventure zone awaits.
If you were expecting mediocre, overpriced food, boring cocktails and expensive beers, Steamboat may surprise you. The T Bar is a converted ski patrol shack that boasts a menu worthy of a New York bistro and tasty drinks to wash it down. The Slopeside Grill uses its Italian brick oven to pump out amazing pizza pies worthy of the old country. Saketumi, with its eclectic selection of sushi rolls, will make you swear you’re on the coast instead of a thousand miles away.
