The standup paddleboard craze gets its own unique Steamboat twist here in the Rocky Mountains, where the wild and free flowing Yampa River makes for exciting whitewater paddleboarding, while quiet ponds are the perfect place to learn new techniques or try out SUP yoga.
If vast, scenic lakes are your paddling style, paddleboard on Stagecoach Reservoir or Steamboat Lake and take in the views while basking in the warm sun and refreshing breezes.
