On Mountain Activities

The base of Steamboat Ski Resort is transformed in the warm and sunny summer months into a natural playground filled with entertainment. From the Land Up activities at the base, to tasty dining options, to more than 50 miles of trails perfect for hiking and biking, there’s no shortage of opportunities to explore.
One of the best ways to opt outside like a local in the summer is to hit the trails. Whether you are an experienced hiker or simply looking for a leisurely walk outdoors with the kids, Mt. Werner has as a trail for you. Pick your hiking adventure and soak up the Colorado sunshine by trying out one of the trails they offer. You can even take a ride up the gondola to access trails further up the mountain!
If you’re a thrill-seeking experienced rider or a beginner wanting to try the sport for the first time, Steamboat Ski Resort is a great option for you. There are 30 miles of cross-country multi-use trails on Mt. Werner you can access for free. These trails wind through aspens, rock formations, and secluded singletrack. You can explore the entire mountain top to bottom. Don’t have your own equipment? Visit one of the many bike rental shops in Steamboat to get all the gear you need.
Scenic Gondola Rides
The gondola was renovated in summer 2019 and is now open and ready for you to enjoy! What better way to see the scenic views of the Yampa Valley than taking a ride up the new gondola. The 8-person gondola will take you to Thunderhead Lodge where you can get off and enjoy the trails, take photos, and visit some of the restaurant options. Once you’re done up top, hop on the gondola and enjoy the ride back down to the base area. More info on the Steamboat Ski Resort gondola rides including hours of operation can be found here.
The Land Up
The base of the ski resort in the summer now has activities for everyone. Play a friendly round of mini-golf with the family on the 18-hole course or try out the Outlaw Mountain Coaster with a friend. Discover all of the fun to be had at the Land Up here.
Burgess Creek Beach
Who said you can’t find a beach in Steamboat Springs? You can find a mountain oasis at the base of Steamboat Ski Resort at Burgess Creek beach. The creek beach is a perfect depth for slashing around with your little ones or to soak your feet in after a hike. Sunbathe, play in the sand, and enjoy the picturesque mountains in the background for a perfect summer day.
From cocktails on the patio with Mt. Werner as your backdrop to delectable meals from one of our fine dining establishments, there is an assortment of dining options at the mountain area. Visit the link below for a list of restaurants within walking distance of the gondola and base area.
