On Mountain Activities
Steamboat Springs is home to Steamboat Ski Resort, which features world-class skiing and snowboarding through our famous Champagne Powder and aspen trees. But there is more family fun to be had at Steamboat Ski Resort both on the mountain and at the base. Learn about all the activities, events, dining options and more offered this winter.
Skiing and Snowboarding
Offering world-class tree skiing, a great snowsports school, and a variety of trails for all levels, come check out why Steamboat Ski Resort is one of the best ski mountains in the country. For more information about passes, lift tickets, and mountain updates please visit steamboat.com.
Scenic Gondola Rides
If you aren’t into skiing or riding but still want to take in some of the best sights we have to offer, opt for a scenic ride on the newly remodeled gondola. The 8-person gondola will take you to Thunderhead Lodge where you can take photos, walk around on the snow, and visit some of the dining options available, all while enjoying the panoramic views of the Yampa Valley. Once you’re done up top, hop on the gondola and enjoy the ride back down to the base area. More info on Steamboat Ski Resort gondola rides can be found here.
If you are looking for something more active that the whole family can enjoy, try snowshoeing at the resort. Snowshoes allow you to access beautiful terrain and trails that even skiers can’t reach. You can explore on your own or participate in a guided tour with a resort ambassador. The tour is free, although you do need to purchase a gondola footpass to access the lifts. Showshoe rentals are available at many of the gear shops in town or at the Steamboat Sports at Gondola Square location at the base of the mountain. Check out the snowshoe trail map and visit here for more information.
OUTLAW MOUNTAIN COASTER
Bundle up, because it’s going to be a fast, cool ride! Come ride the longest coaster in North America at Steamboat Ski Resort with more than 6,280 linear feet of track and fun. The coaster operates all winter season and is a great activity for the family. Tickets and season passes are available here.
