Steamboat Ski Resort Overview

Steamboat Ski Resort is a premier ski destination famous for its Champagne Powder®. The mountain is also known for its unique aspen glades, offering up some of the best tree skiing in North America.

Founded in 1963, Steamboat Ski Resort is situated across seven mountain peaks within the Park Range and overlooks the Yampa Valley. The area has a rich western heritage and cowboy vibe that's celebrated throughout many annual events held on the mountain and in town, including the Cowboy Downhill and the Steamboat Winter Carnival.

One of the largest ski resorts in Colorado, Steamboat Springs has been dubbed Ski Town, U.S.A. ®, due to the fact that more Olympians call Steamboat home than any other ski resort. It’s one of Colorado's best family-friendly ski resorts.

Steamboat Ski Resort has over 4.6 square miles (2,965 acres) of skiable terrain, 169 named trails, and 18 lifts. The base elevation is 6,900 feet, and the summit elevation is 10,568 feet. The vertical rise is 3,668 feet.

The resort is located just outside of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It’s about a 3-hour drive from Denver and an hour and a half from Summit County.
