Even when the Colorado sun is blazing, the Colorado mountain air is crisp in the heart of winter. While the cold is perfect for the famous Champagne Powder® that Steamboat has to offer - and ideal for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and other outdoor fun - you may need to step inside for a warm-up every once in a while. Here’s a few ways to stay warm in the ‘Boat:
Step Into History
The Tread of Pioneers Museum is where Olympic heritage meets the old West, where pioneer roots meet quirky small town stories. Take a stroll through the exhibits and learn about how Steamboat Springs came to be through western artifacts and old photographs. Don’t miss the Soldiers on Skis special tribute to the 10th Mountain Division and the unique gift shop.

Healthy and Happy
Local spas, salons and studios are the perfect respite from the cold. Imagine a relaxing massage to rejuvenate those sore skiing muscles, a heated yoga practice or a soak in the natural waters of the local hot springs. Steamboat’s spas offer a range of beauty and health services fitting for all budgets and personalized for your own unique experience.
Dance the Night Away
There’s no better way to warm up than on the dance floor. It’s time for a night out, and Steamboat’s bars and music venues host a range of music offerings. From rowdy bars with live music lasting well past midnight to venues like Strings Music Pavilion and the Chief Theater for performing arts and cultural events, Steamboat Springs has your ticket to an entertaining evening.
For the Kids
Little ones restless and looking for off-mountain fun? Take them out on the town. The Bud Werner Memorial Library is home to a vibrant youth section and abundant story time readings. Snow Bowl, the local bowling alley, is also home to an arcade and painting studio offering easy classes on creating your own masterpiece. Downtown, In Celebration of Kids also offers an arcade, salon, cafeteria and shops just for kids.
