Snow & Ski

We love our mountains and so will you! During the months of November through April, Steamboat Springs transforms into a beautiful winter wonderland. And, lucky for you, there are plenty of ways to explore our beautiful mountain.

For adventurers, take a day to ski, sled, or snowboard down the mountain. Lessons and slopes exist for snow sport enthusiasts of all levels, so don’t be intimidated by the pros. Though Steamboat Springs is a popular destination for avid professionals, the family-friendly backdrop provides everything from bunny slopes to black diamond jumps, which makes it easy to find your speed. There are also several different styles of skiing to explore: backcountry skiing, ski jumping, Nordic skiing—the options are endless! And, local rental agencies have everything you could need if you don’t have equipment of your own.

If something more recreational is what you seek, try snow tubing! A somewhat easier version of sledding, snow tubing takes absolutely no experience and is a stress-free, thrilling way to scoot down the mountain. Or, try a scenic horseback ride or sleigh ride. You haven’t experienced Steamboat Springs until you’ve seen it while drinking hot cocoa and snuggling under a blanket while relaxing in a sled being pulled around town by majestic horses. Something straight out of a movie scene, this dream an easily become a reality during your mountain adventure.

Of course, you can’t beat enjoying the snow from inside your cozy vacation rental. Making snow angels, snowmen, and snow fights are all fun memories you can make during your stay in Steamboat Springs. And, watching the snow fall from the comfort of your rental while enjoying a tasty beverage is truly unforgettable.
