Steamboat Ski Holidays
The skiing at Steamboat is world-renowned and the resort has an incredible snow record. In fact they've even trademarked the phrase 'Champagne Powder' to describe the fluffy, light and dry Colorado snow that falls here in abundance.
Blue sky days and great visibility are also likely to be a big feature of any Steamboat ski holiday and on a bluebird day, the tree skiing can be legendary.
Steamboat offers 3000 acres of terrain, split over six peaks and perfect for intermediates and families.
We offer a wide range of Steamboat ski hotels and ski condos either right by the slopes in Steamboat Mountain Village or in Steamboat old town, which is around three miles from the base. Steamboat Mountain Village is super convenient for direct access to the slopes while Steamboat old town is a ranching town with a distinctive old western feel. A regular shuttle connects the two.
Skiing in Steamboat
Steamboat is firmly stamped ‘Great for Families’. Kids ski & rent free up to 12 years old – provided they are pre-booked and the adults rent too – plus the ski school is tip-top. The kids stay in the same, small, group all week and as well as improving their skiing and riding, take part in treasure hunts, barbeques and races.
There is a huge amount of terrain here for all ages and all skill levels, but on a great powder day the tree-skiing in Steamboat is like nothing else you’ve ever experienced on a pair of skis – and you can take it one step further with a day’s Snowcat skiing with Steamboat Powder Cats.
For freestyle skiers and boarders, Steamboat has four different terrain parks and one super pipe - Mavericks - which is 450 feet long and 56 feet wide. Mini-Mav is a small version of the super pipe, perfect for novices and those not keen to tackle the 18 foot walls of its big brother!
We offer a full range of discounted Steamboat lift tickets, ski & snowboard rentals and snow school lessons and we always recommend you book early for our very best prices.
