Why Ski Steamboat?
Champagne Powder - Very smooth and dry snow, which is great for skiing. Steamboat Ski Resort holds the trademark for the term Champagne Powder. The name derives from the sparkling wine champagne.
Genuine and Welcoming Western Heritage - The American west is alive and well and living in Steamboat Springs. Working ranches surround the town. Main Street is extra wide -- to accommodate cattle drives. And you're just as likely to have breakfast next to a cowboy as you are a tourist. But up here, you'll also find the spirit of the West in the tip of a hat. A genuine smile. An open door. And a light left on
Unbelievable Tree Skiing - Most of the trees on the hill are skiable, and there are a mix of aspens and pines, and lots of variation with regards to pitch and tree spacing. The tree skiing is pretty spectacular.
Ski Town USA - Steamboat is simply known around the globe as Ski Town USA®. Its skiing heritage dates back to the early 1900s. And long before people strapped on skis for fun, Steamboat residents in the late 1800s were using ski and snowshoes in their daily lives. In fact, Steamboat Springs recently celebrated its 100-year anniversary. You'll be hard pressed to find another resort town that exudes this much history, heritage and character. Come see for yourself why so many people call Steamboat home.
Olympic Heritage - Steamboat Springs has produced more winter Olympians than any other town in North America: 88 in total. From Lake Placid to Sochi, Steamboat’s athletes have represented 12 different countries and made 151 appearances during 19 winter games.
