Snow disappears quick here, If its been dry a few days watch out for hazards. The runs out are narrow and pack up. The chutes are good, backside of the mountain is decent trees but short runs and a single slow lift. Overall not as good as winterpark or copper, if you are on... More

Great ski town and terrain. Love the tree skiing options! Always seem to have good weather - sunny skies and deep snow. Little bit of a hike from Denver, but that also means there aren't as many people on the slopes.... More

Steamboat has some of the best snow around and probably the best tree doing in the US. Not the most advanced trails but enough to keep you busy with the tree runs. ... More

Steamboat is incredible! Definitely better than hitting resorts in summit county that are way overcrowded. Love visiting the town of Steamboat and it’s fun even if there isn’t any new Fresh snow!... More

My wife and I first visited Steamboat in 1995 when we were first married and both thought, "if we ever have kids, we will bring them here to learn to ski!" 23 years and four daughters later- we made good on that idea. Steamboat is a fabulous place to make memories for a lifetime.... More

Steamboat is the most beautiful resort I have ever been to. The mountain is unbelievable, with the best trees I have ever ridden. The staff are fantastic, and the resort itself is a great time. This mountain is one of the main reasons I am planning to move to steamboat l.
