powder every day!. Steamboat is a beautiful place. I've never seen so much powder! I was there in January of 06. There was over 300 inches of snow. Powder everyday! Did I say they have powder? I will be back.
Better snow earlier in the season gives this North Park Range resort an edge over more southern mountains..
Steamboat Springs bills itself as "Ski Town USA," because Norwegian champion Carl Howelsen settled here in 1917 and talked the town into building what was then the world's largest ski jump.
Mount Werner's great rounded shoulders seem designed for easy cruising and for the most part, that's how skiers use this huge, friendly honey-bear of a mountain. Experts know it's also a tremendous place to play in the woods, especially in the aspen glades. The timberline is high (higher than the summit), and the firs and aspen are perfectly spaced to create the finest tree skiing in the Rockies. The half-dozen classic, fall-line bump runs draw a rowdy crowd of youngsters.

Apre Ski and Powder. This resort as some of the lighest snow I have skiied on. I have been to most Colorado resorts plus Jackson Hole and Park City and this is the best snow. The Apre ski scene is great also. There is a bar right at the base of the mountain called Bear River and they have great live music daily. I think the musicians name when I was there was Shawn Allen plus some other guys. On top of all this the downtown scene had great food and more live music at night.
Champagne powder!. We go on a trip to Steamboat every year and it is always great. They are not as crowded as some of the other resorts, the employees are friendly, and there is a good variety of runs.
To see it is to disbelieve it.. Nothing like the ads. Throws too many beginners and intermediates up the mountain to places they don't belong. And how 'bout the dumpy accomodations? Take a pass!!!
Great Snow - Great Weather. The terrain is not the steepest, but the skiing is fun and their are some challenging areas on the mountain. The snow is always great and there are a lot of sunny days during the winter. The town is cool and funky - overall a great ski vacation destination.
Champaign Snow. A little far to travel for day skiing for individuals living in Denver, but a great ski resort. Western Charm. Great slopes and special champaign snow...real fluffy type. I learned to ski here over twenty-years ago. You won't see jagged peaks but rounded mountains - nearby. You are here to ski and enjoy the Western Hospitality of the Town of Steamboat. Snow clings to Evergreen trees making it appear as a wonderland with blue skies and great skiing. Try ski jumping and nigh time "tubing" at near by establishments. A winter ski vacation to Steamboat is one for the memory books.
Great Skiing for the Cajuns. We brought a group of four and stayed at one of the local condos. We were able to ski for three days and go night skiing. We also checked out some of the local towns and had a superb time. Would like to visit again.
Best powder east of jacksonhole Wy. the extra pass makes it less drive able and therefor less crowded. Can't wait to return to tear up the mountain.
By the way. I run snowboarders over for fun.
I've lived in Steamboat all my life and although we've got our bad days when it comes to snow, it's still the best place!!! Except for when all of the tourists come and TAKE OVER! AGH! but our economy depends on you guys, so thanks!
but don't ever live here because it's as boring as hell, in my opinion. It's nice to visit though. Damn I need to get outta this town
