Uncork Some Champagne Powder Aodhan Boylan, Ski Specialist

"If you like long blue groomed cruisers “Buddy’s Run” in Steamboat will be your cup of tea. It’s a good pitch and nice and long – perfect to practice those big GS turns. It was named after Buddy Werner who was a member of the US ski team way back in the 60’s and was a local to Steamboat"

Après Ski in Steamboat

Steamboat is an old Western town that knows how to have a good time, and aims to keep everyone happy, and coming back! Guests typically stay either in the old town, or in the mountain village. They are 3 miles apart, and linked by a regular courtesy shuttle. If you are staying in the mountain village, a trip to check out downtown is a ‘must-do' during your vacation.

A lively, happening kind of place, Steamboat has loads to do, and enjoy. Great après-ski is not hard to find; Slopeside Grill is the perfect venue to sample that vital first round of the day. Café Diva, in the mountain village, is a wonderful destination for a special, elegant dinner, or try the more casual Bear River Bar and Grille. Downtown, Johnny B Good’s is fun, and reasonably priced.

Just off the mountain and still in ski boots, both ski-in/stumbles out:

Slopeside Bar and Grill
Bear River Café


Ghost Ranch Saloon

A great music venue.

Mahogany Ridge

Brew pub with a good local vibe.

The Boathouse

On the mountain:

The Tugboat

Big and brash and fun.


Good variety of beers by the pint, late night happy hour.


Local's bar in the old Ski Patrol triage trailer at the base of the mountain. Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap is the thing! Best après spot in your ski boots without a doubt!

Umbrella Bar & Terrace

European style watering hole at the Gondola Base.

Truffle Pig

Great bar with outside & inside seating.
