People from all over the world come far and wide to ski Steamboat’s unmatched Champagne Powder. We have thousands of acres to ski, unbeatable trees, and runs for every level of expertise.  Therefore, there is nothing quite like skiing Steamboat. Aside from our awesome resort, you can also ride Howelsen Hill and try out backcountry skiing. No matter where your interests lie, Steamboat has anything you need to achieve the perfect ski day.

Steamboat Resort – 2305 Mt Werner Cir – (970) 879-6111

One of Colorado’s best ski resorts consists of multiple mountains and peaks. With 18 lifts, 165 trails, and more than 3000 skiable acres, Steamboat Resort has terrain for the beginner to the expert skiers and snowboarders. Champagne Powder snow, an 84-year Olympic heritage, and family programs therefore make Steamboat worth riding. Our snow, coined Champagne Powder®  for its light powdery texture, is an experience to ski on like no other. With a ten-year average of 338 inches of this magical stuff, you’re bound to find an untouched stash somewhere.

Howelsen Hill – Howelsen Pkwy – (970) 879-8499

This unique ski area not only hosts the same Champagne Powder, but you can even check out the Olympic ski jumps while you’re ridging the lifts. This is the birth place of so many incredible Olympic Athletes,  therefore providing this ski area has a unique heritage. It is Colorado’s oldest ski area in continuous use, as it was opened in 1915. With the largest natural ski jumping complex in North America, Howelsen Hill offers downhill and cross-country skiing too! In addition, night skiing/riding is available 3 nights a week. Folks can ski for free on Sundays.

Backcountry Skiing

The peaks  surrounding Steamboat offer some of the deepest snow in Colorado. With endless miles from Rabbit Ears to Clark, there are a multitude of places to check out backcountry and cross country. However, we absolutely recommend using a guided tour in order to try out the backcountry. Not only will you be further protected in this unique endeavor, but also will get the local’s knowledge. Sometimes the best places to try your hand are hidden. For a full list of popular trails, check our the Chamber’s information provided here.
