Warm Weather

The Yampa River

In the summer, take a leisurely bike ride downtown on the Yampa River Core Trail. You will be amazed at the amount of activities going on with families by the river. During the summer months, the water is a popular place to cool down. The Yampa River hosts an assortment of recreation, such as whitewater rafting, tubing, fishing, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding. Many companies can guide you in these activities. For the younger kiddos, there are a few parks along the river with a couple wading areas to play in.

Amaze’n Steamboat Family Fun Park

Amaze’n Steamboat Family Fun Park is an all around great time! Play a fun round of Mini Gol, run the Giant Maze and race against the clock in a labyrinth of twists and turns, or test your skills in the Gyro. Try your hand at Gemstone Panning in our authentic sluice where you pan for gems just like the miners used to and keep what you find! In the heat of summer, cool off with Squirt Gun Fun in the maze! Amaze’n Steamboat offers a fun experience that will bring everyone together for a great time. With catering options, an event tent, picnic tables, grills, and fun activities for all ages, there’s everything you need on-site to host your group all day long. With plenty of shaded seating areas, you can relax and take a break while watching your family have a blast!

Steamboat Ski Resort

Steamboat Ski Resort base area is also great all year round. The first activity is obvious — world clas skiing. However, after working up a sweat and an appetite, head to the base area. This is a great spot for kids and to hang out — with patio space, snow activities, and often live music. Parents can grab food and drink at the many dining establishments and relax along the base in an Adirondack chair while the kids play. The base area also provides activities such as tubing. In the public land areas, Steamboat resort offers sleigh rides, or even snowshoeing. With endless amounts of snow and terrain, there are lots of family friendly activities for families who don’t ski!
