Part ski town and part authentic ranching center, Steamboat Springs offers you a wonderful down home experience that you won't get anywhere else. It attracts visitors mostly for skiing, but the town also offers nearly any kind of outdoor recreation you can imagine. For anyone who'd rather stay indoors, there's plenty of shopping, or you can relax in one of the natural hot springs for which the town was named.
Steamboat Springs has a unique mix of sunshine, cowboy boots and friendly locals, inviting you to a laidback vacation. This historic Colorado resort town is where western heritage meets outdoor adventure. The town was originally a summer resort before it became known as Ski Town, USA, renowned for its world-class skiing and Champagne Powder. Today, Steamboat Springs is a popular destination all year-round. There are trails to mountain bike, rivers to fish, tube, kayak and play in, golf courses, hiking trails, not to mention a town full of bars, restaurants, museums, art galleries, shopping, and more.
Bike along the Yampa River Core Trail, stretching 7.5 miles and connecting one side of town to the other. Start your ride along the river and end up in the heart of downtown. If the weather is just right, jump in the water and float down the river, or take a soak in one of the natural hot springs. It's also a great place to catch some native trout. Did you know Steamboat is home to four breweries? Stop in to try a local beer brewed locally in the Yampa Valley. Every Saturday throughout the summer, you can browse the Farmer’s Market, or head to a restaurant to taste some locally raised beef and produce.
There's so much to do in Steamboat proper, but nearby Routt County is definitely worth exploring. North Routt County is home to the breathtaking Steamboat Lake and Hahn's Peak. You can also spend the afternoon paddle boarding at Pearl Lake. Head south to Stagecoach Reservoir for some trophy fishing. The kids will love visiting the historic mining "ghost" town of Oak Creek or Yampa, known as the "gateway to the flattops."
For the ultimate getaway, stay at Legacy Vacation Resorts. There are two locations that put you in the heart of one of the largest ski resorts in North America. The accommodations are condominium-style making travel easy and convenient for the entire family. Another great option near Steamboat Ski Resort is Hampton Inn and Suites.
