Trip Highlights

Steamboat Grand LobbySteamboat TownOnly a 30 minute drive from Hayden Airport to Steamboat Springs. We are staying at the Steamboat Grand a 4-STAR HOTEL ….This is the first time TBSSB has stayed at a HOTEL (not condos) in a very, very long time, DON’T MISS YOUR CHANCE and you won’t regret coming here to this elegant and pampering hotel. We will have a welcome reception party, après ski, final banquet party. The skiing will be on snow which is called Champagne Powder Snow, and though it may sound like a local folk tale, it’s a pure unadulterated, scientific fact. The powder that falls in this secluded little corner of the Rockies is 70% drier, 70% fluffier and 100% more fun to ski and ride than any other powder around. We will have an entire week of fun and GREAT SKIING!!!!!!!

The Mountain

Steamboat SnowboarderSteamboat is actually a complete mountain range: Mount Werner, Sunshine Peak, Storm Peak, Thunderhead Peak, Pioneer Ridge® and Christie Peak. 2,965 acres of permitted terrain offer a diversity of trails for all levels of ability. Maverick’s Super pipe is a free rider’s dream. Mavericks is 500 feet long, 56-feet wide, has 18 foot walls, and a 22 foot radius. Steamboat's terrain park adjacent to Mavericks features an outdoor sound system, a variety of rails; kinked, sliders, rainbows, "S", mailboxes, double barrel, and Mini-Mav, a miniature version of the super pipe with five-foot walls, perfect for novice riders. Gladed areas of Pioneer Ridge, Sunshine and Storm Peak are Steamboat's particular claim to fame, with groomed runs with a First Tracks ticket or find your way with free, daily guided ski and snowshoe tours. Snag a rare chance to pick up insights from a former Olympic champion Billy Kidd, you have to check out the sign at the top of the gondola to see if Billy is skiing on a given day and he leaves from the top of Why Not at 1:00pm. The lists of activities that are on the mountain are endless, but I will guarantee you will have a GREAT TIME!!!!!!

Steamboat Skier in PowderSTEAMBOAT SPRINGS was founded and has flourished with cattle and sheep ranches throughout the Yampa River Valley high up in the Northwest Colorado Rockies. Hundreds Of natural mineral springs surrounded the area in the 1800’s and those existing today offer relaxing healing powers after an energetic day on the slopes.

So, with a small town, big mountain, huge heart when you come to Steamboat, you’ll find a town that welcomes you with open arms.
