Steamboat Springs is prepared to lure you back for a dose of our irresistible winter. Here are a dozen tempting reasons to return after the snow falls. 1 | Ski and ride in hundreds of inches of Champagne Powder® snow. 2 | Soak and stay warm in natural hot springs while snowflakes fall on your head. 3 | Boogie at the base of the slopes at mid-winter music festivals and free spring concerts. 4 | Witness future Olympic greatness as young ski jumpers fly at Howelsen Hill. 5 | Laugh ‘till you cry as you slide down a tubing hill. 6 | Ski like Johnny Spillane – or at least learn how at local Nordic skiing centers. 7 | Climb straight up a frozen waterfall – or snowshoe around to the top. 8 | Hurtle through the powder at high speed. Your choice: dog sled or snowmobile? 9 | Play cowboy on a snowy horseback ride or a horse-drawn sleigh ride. 10 | Saunter around a real Western downtown bustling under a blanket of snow – home to the oldest Winter Carnival west of the Mississippi. 11 | Sink into luxurious off-slope relaxation with spas, yoga studios, galleries and more. 12 | Revel in sunshine, soft snow, blue skies and Springalicious festivities…before summer arrives again.
