Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
Steamboat Ski Resort
We have the driest and fluffiest snow in the world. It's so different, we coined the phrase Champagne Powder. In fact, meteorologists have measured Steamboat's Champagne Powder as having 70% less moisture content than average snow.
The Champagne Powder, fabulous skiing and snowboarding that have made Steamboat famous are complemented by an abundance of activities for all to enjoy. You can snowmobile, horseback ride, sleigh ride or get a massage. Cross-country ski on more than 30km of trails, or explore the backcountry on snow-shoes or...you can even go tubing right on the mountain with your kids. When you're done, sample more than 70 restaurants and bars, and then take a dip in the restorative waters of our namesake mineral hot springs. It's a lot to do in one vacation, so be sure to give yourself ample time here.
