Skiing & Snowboarding

You’ve skied all over the world and you could live anywhere you wanted.
Would you pick your second favorite place?
Steamboat is home to more winter Olympians (100 and counting) than any place on earth.

No place like Steamboat

One of the largest ski resorts in the world, Steamboat is known for its wide variety of terrain for beginners to the extreme. Steamboat has excellent bowls, cruisers, bumps, wide opens, and legendary tree skiing/boarding. Better yet, over 300 inches average per year of Champagne Powder snow!

This resort is huge (over 2,900 acres) with plenty of a variety of skiing and boarding for every level. With a lift capacity of over 40,000 skiers, you don’t wait in line. And when the sun sets (and before) there is music, events, and activities like no other place on earth!

Champagne Powder

You hear a lot about Champagne Powder snow in Steamboat Springs. But what is that?!?!

The phrase was coined in the early 1950s by local rancher Joe McElroy, who was out skiing on terrain that eventually would become the ski area and said the snow tickled his nose like champagne. Steamboat’s unique snow averages 6 percent water content. Compare that to the 15 percent water content more typical at other locations.

No other ski resort has its snow trademarked, and there’s
no other place you’ll find Champagne Powder snow than in Steamboat!
