Ski Holidays in Steamboat, USA

Ski Steamboat and discover small-town hospitality and friendly service both on and off the mountain.

Located in northwestern Colorado, not far from Wyoming, Steamboat trademarked the name “Ski Town USA” as a testament to its skiing roots and the generations of Olympic athletes who grew up there. Stroll downtown and you might catch a glimpse of future Olympians soaring off the 90-meter jump at Howelsen Hill. Kids ski free, and parents will love the generous snowfall (an average of 330 inches a year) and legendary tree skiing.

Steamboat is over 100 years old but modern in every amenity. There are two main areas, the original downtown area, dating back to the end of the last century, with its own authentic cowboy atmosphere and the more modern village area just at the foot of the ski lifts. With close to 3,000 skiable acres, a Steamboat ski vacation package offers every level of terrain and it’s all easy to reach by a vast lift system including the Silver Bullet TM eight-passenger gondola.

There are affordable restaurants for every taste- from Norwegian to barbecue smokehouses and post-dinner nightspots to round out the evening. Steamboat’s lodging accommodation choices are as huge as the mountain, everything from family-oriented condominiums to European-style bed and breakfasts.
