All Steamboat Packages
Steamboat has a fantastic snow record with recent seasons seeing more than 30 feet of the white stuff! Flights are either into Denver where the transfer is about 4 hours or Hayden where you can be in resort in half an hour. The resort village is just a 10 minute bus ride from the old town of Steamboat Springs and many of the properties are ski in/ski out so access to the slopes is never a problem. Wherever you stay, you are bound to be impressed by the traditional Western hospitality on offer.
Steamboat Ski Resort Apres Ski
The base lodge area has more life than the old town in the evening but it is still definitely worth a visit for a dance.
Steamboat Ski Resort Bars
Follow the nightlife trail map for those looking for the typical pub crawl! There is live music and dancing in the Tugboat. McKights Irish Pub & Loft is a fun Irish pub and Carl’s Tavern with it’s plenty of tv screens showing sport (if you’re going to eat best book in advance as it gets pretty busy).
Steamboat Ski Resort Restaurants
The Slopeside Grill is the place to go at the end of the day or Cafe Diva for superb food. Mazzola’s Italian Diner is well worth a visit as is Rex’s American Grill & Bar or, if you fancy Mexican, you can’t do much better than Salt & Lime
Steamboat Ski Resort Activities
Away from the beer the resort activities are snowmobiling, ice climbing, tubing, hot air ballooning and dog sledding. There are also natural hot springs at Strawberry Park for relaxing after a few hard days on the slopes.
Steamboat is a firm favourite of intermediates and families. Children can ski and rent for free up to 12 years old as long as they are pre-booked and the adults are renting too. If your children book into a Desperados Ski Week they will have an awesome time as they will stay in the same group all week and as well as bringing on their skiing and boarding they will take part in loads of extra fun stuff such as treasure hunts, races etc. Intermediates will find that most of the mountain is perfect with long cruising runs. There is an easy black on Morningside Park and some great terrain in the trees. More advanced skiers and boarders will find the main challenges to be found in the glades. Sunshine Park under the Sundown Chair is good fun. If you like bumps then head to the runs off Four Points or the Sundown Express. You can also go Snowcat skiing for something different. Snowboarders will find that there is a good learning area and plenty of gentle slopes to progress onto. More experienced riders will love the glades as they are brilliant in the fresh powder. There are four terrain parks with rails, jumps, a quarter pipe and a super pipe
