Steamboat is definitely a fun resort to play at. The runs take you past a halfpipe and down right into the village area. Suitable for skiers and snowboarders of all ages and skill levels, the only complaint i have is how long the line for the main lift can be down at the bottom.... More

Steamboat is a special place. It is more about the experience than just the mountain. It is an old West feel with amazing snow and a great town. You can get a laid back on mountain experience or a true Colorado mountain town experience. More Authentic than Vail, more real world... More

Me and my spouse went to steamboat during the December festivities and it was absolutely fantastic. Skiing that champagne powder snow which they are known for was absolutely world class. On another note I would sum it up as a drinking town with a ski problem!!!... More

Steamboat is not a hardcore charging mountain but it has a great variety of terrain with steep tree runs just a short hike up. Super friendly town with plenty of options for top notch dining and accomodations.... More

Steamboat is a mecca for skiing, the most winter olympians come from here for a reason, the skiing is great and the whole town lives and breathes the culture. Steamboat is that place that always seems to get just a couple more inches than everybody else from any given storm and... More

I've been around the block here in Steamboat. Started off working for the resort but quickly learned it isn't worth it. Employee housing is now 3 people sharing a small room. An outdated gondola from the 70s isn't worth the price of the ride. And even though Steamboat's located... More
