This is one of the most inviting ski mountains to be found, with almost 3,000 skiable acres making it the second largest in the region. Steamboat's Hugh mountain offers every level of terrain from wide-open moguls to powder and trees. Steamboat is famous worldwide for its "Champagne Powder" that collects between the tall aspen and evergreens, creating tree skiing that is legendary. Anyone who has been to Steamboat can tell you what the locals have been saying for years: The snow is simply better here. It's lighter, softer and there's a lot more of it.

At the end of the day you will enjoy small-town hospitality, friendly service and affordable, yet distinctive, restaurants for every taste. The town of Steamboat Springs is over hundred years old and is one of Colorado's authentic old western towns. It is still a small ranching community that serves as a constant reminder that the Old West is alive and well. It's a town that welcomes vacationers with open arms and enough small town charm to keep you smiling even after you leave. This Western tradition continues to set Steamboat apart from every other ski resort.
