Across the promenade from Steamboat Square, the lower terminal of Christie Peak Express lift will be shifted to the south to make room for the lower terminal of Wild Blue. During Full Steam Ahead Phase II, the lower leg of Wild Blue Gondola will be completed to Greenhorn Ranch, spanning 4,212 feet with 54 cabins and about a 5-minute ride time. Eventually Greenhorn Ranch will serve as the mid-station for the Wild Blue Gondola, where it will extend its journey to the top of Sunshine Peak providing direct base area access to the resort’s most popular terrain. Upon completion of the second leg in Phase III of Full Steam Ahead, the Wild Blue Gondola will be the longest 10-person gondola in North America, spanning 16,008 horizontal feet and 3,371 vertical feet with 171 cabins and a total ride time of 13 minutes. The second leg is scheduled to be completed for winter 23/24.

To make room for the Christie Peak Express lower terminal shift and maximize skier/rider egress to the Steamboat Square, the Outlaw Mountain Coaster and Maverick’s mini golf course will be removed after the end of the winter season and are not expected to be reinstalled. “We have long recognized the Mountain Coaster is not in an ideal location as the first impression in the base area,” said Perlman. “Now we have the opportunity to be thoughtful about our approach to base area improvements. As we move Full Steam Ahead with shifting Christie Peak Express lift to make room for the Wild Blue Gondola, it is time to remove the mountain coaster from the main thoroughfare in the base area.”

Known as one of the best family resorts in the world, Steamboat’s new beginner’s area Greenhorn Ranch will redefine the first timer’s experience by whisking skiers and riders to 7,513 feet to start their mountain adventure. Instead of keeping first time skiers and riders in the base area out of convenience, as many resorts do, Steamboat’s beginners will be immersed in the mountains. Greenhorn Ranch will feature one lift, four beginner magic carpets, 30 snow guns on 14 acres of terrain-based learning utilizing the re-graded terrain to teach skiers and riders. Students of Steamboat SnowSports School will have access to the Greenhorn Ranch Sprung Structure for lunch and warming.

The Full Steam Ahead project began in spring 2021 with the demolition of the Gondola building, relocation of the lower gondola terminal and the addition of escalators from the resort’s main entrance to Steamboat Square. Full Steam Ahead will continue through winter 23/24 with Phase 3 completing the second leg of Wild Blue from Greenhorn Ranch to the top of Sunshine Peak, adding 655 acres of advanced/expert terrain and a detachable quad into Pioneer Ridge/Fish Creek Falls and finalizing Steamboat Square amenities. With the addition of new expert terrain, Steamboat will become the second largest ski resort in Colorado. For more details on Full Steam Ahead including a complete timeline, projects already completed and what to expect in the future visit www.steamboat.com/FullSteamAhead.

In addition to Full Steam Ahead, Steamboat will invest more than $2 million in on-mountain improvements to snowmaking, lift maintenance, ski patrol equipment and mountain machinery including 2 new tier 5 snowcats which reduce NOx emissions by 90 percent and particulate matter by 75 percent over a tier 4 engine. The resort will also demo hybrid snowcats to understand their sustainability in cutting fuel use and increasing energy efficiency to our on-mountain fleet. Sunshine Express lift will undergo more than $800,000 in maintenance and nearly half a million dollars will be put into new ski and snowboard rental fleets including performance equipment from Rossignol and Burton. The resort continues to invest in its staff with $400,000 in upgrades to employee housing in the Walton Pond complex including a complete interior renovation of one of its buildings.

Steamboat Springs holds a lot of its own unique history and culture. Many creative traditions were established as a way to bring the community together during long winters and stunning summers. Check out our breakdown on some of our favorite Steamboat traditions!

Winter Carnival

2022 will mark the 109th Annual Winter Carnival in Steamboat Springs. The carnival — established as a way to help residents cope with the long winters of Colorado — created the carnival to celebrate winter. Neighbors gathered back then as they do today for ski jumping, snow sculpting, street slalom, ski joring and even a shovel race (there’s a horse involved – that’s all we’ll say). More recent additions to the carnival include the famous ‘Lighted Man’, the World’s Largest Firework, and the Diamond Hitch Parade. This is one of our most beloved events – so make sure you book your Steamboat Springs lodging well in advance!

Cowboy Downhill

This year was the Cowboy Downhill’s 47th Anniversary at Steamboat Ski Resort. 40 years ago, famous local olympian Billy Kidd got together with Larry Mahan, World Champion cowboy. The two invited local cowboys out for a day on the resort which quickly became what we know today as the Cowboy Downhill. Over 100 professional rodeo cowboys and cowgirls come to the resort to test their ability on a pair of skis — a wildly entertaining and incomparably unique Steamboat tradition.

Hot Air Ballon Rodeo

41 years ago, Steamboat created the stunning Hot Air Balloon Rodeo. Over 20 balloon will fill the sky in the early mornings of the weekend, a spectacle like no other. The tradition is iconic as they have even added a balloon glow in the evenings at the base of Steamboat Resort. Gather at Bald Eagle Lake or sit on the deck of your south-facing Steamboat Springs Vacation Rental (see our available homes!) and watch as the spectacular colors fill the sky.

All of these heart-warming events are anticipated by locals and tourists alike. We are so proud to live in a community that works hard to bring our city together for fun, beauty, and celebration of history and culture. These are can’t miss, popular events! Be sure to book with Four Seasons Steamboat for lodging and vacation rentals here in beautiful Steamboat Springs.

No matter if your perfect holiday includes taking a stroll through a lit-up downtown Steamboat, or perhaps a sleigh-ride at saddle back ranch, or even a day on the world renowned Champagne Powder — Four Seasons Steamboat is here to help you plan your dream escape.

Sleigh Rides

There are a multitude of ranches around Steamboat Springs that offer sleigh rides. Many even offer a dinner service to round out the unique experience. Bar Lazy L is one of the ranches in Routt County that provides the sleigh rides for a one-of-a-kind holiday experience.

The scenic sleigh ride follows the river through the lower pasture, drifts through the trees, and traverses back down our meadow to the loft of our remodeled barn. There, a country dinner is prepared as you warm up and browse the many western artifacts accumulated by the owners’ over the years as well as traditional western music performed by local artists. The after-dinner entertainment concludes as you bundle up for the sleigh ride back to the bus and the return to town. Reservations are required for all sleigh rides.

Downtown Steamboat Springs

Steamboat Springs has a unique, Western aesthetic to it that perfectly encapsulates a winter wonderland. What better way to celebrate the holidays than doing some holiday shopping, walking along the lit-up street, and watching snow fall onto our mountain. There are tons of beautiful & locally owned stores that hold beautiful keepsakes that your family members will love to receive this Christmas. Or, perhaps a new ornament for your tree! You will feel like you’re walking through a snow globe when spending time in our stunning downtown environment.

Skiing

Steamboat Springs has so much to offer during the winter months. However, for the traveller who doesn’t partake in downhill or backcountry skiing, the snow can feel somewhat intimidating. You want to be able to participate in the great outdoors and all the beauty Steamboat has to offer— so how do you do it?

Snowshoeing is one of our favorite activities in Steamboat. With spanning views, Champagne Powder, and endless trails, we’d like to tell you about some of our favorite spots to go snowshoeing locally here in Steamboat.

Getting Your Gear

Don’t have your own snowshoes? No worries. There are multiple shops around town that provide day rentals at a great price. One of our favorites is Ski Haus, where you can rent snowshoes for an entire day for about $20. You can also rent boots, snow pants, jackets, gloves— anything you’d need for a day on the trail.

Trails

There are tons of trails in the Steamboat Springs and surrounding areas. If you’re wanting to stay close to town, a great place to try your hand at this activity is Fish Creek Falls. This 7.6 mile loop, although you don’t have to take the whole loop. There are a few trails you can snowshoe in this area, though most review this space to be easy and beautifully scenic.

If you are a more active person, Rabbit Ears is an absolutely stunning place to snowshoe. The trails on Rabbit Ears Pass offer a wide array of terrain with many ascents and descents. These trails range closer to 3-4 mile loops, but are more of a challenge.

Another beautiful local snowshoeing trail is Emerald Mountain and Howelsen Hill. This is a slow ascent with absolutely stunning views of town below with many opportunities to offshoot into more narrow and remote trails. You’ll have an easy hike down with a breathtaking view of Sleeping Giant!

At Four Seasons Steamboat, we encourage all of our guests to get out into nature and see all the beauty our slice of heaven has to offer — even if it’s not skiing!

When you visit Steamboat Springs, make sure to book with Four Seasons Steamboat for more personalized recommendations and homey accommodations to snuggle up in after a long day enjoying Steamboat.

Steamboat Resort is already amazing as is, but the Steamboat resort owners have published their 4 year plan to significantly upgrade the base area as well as add the longest Gondola in North America. The base area hasn’t had a significant update since the 70s and 80s, so the changes are exciting! This year the renovations begin with the Gondola Transit Center being moved from the heart of the base further up onto the ski hill. This will provide additional room in “Steamboat Square” for retail shops, new restaurants, a skating rink in 2022.

“We recognize that we haven’t made improvements or investments in the base area for a long time,” Perlman said. “We want to create that sense of place in the heart of Gondola Square.”

“It’s full steam ahead, as we’ve been saying,” said Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. President and COO Rob Perlman. “We’re already an incredible resort, and we’re just talking about taking things to that next level.”

Check back here for updates regarding the highly anticipated renovation as we creep up to opening weekend on November 20th.

Skiing doesn’t always mean downhill.

For those who aren’t keen on the idea of downhill skiing, there are tons of other ways to get out into the snow. Nordic skiing is a popular sport between locals and visitors alike. For those looking for an intense morning cardio, or a peaceful ride through the valley, there is something for everyone! If you’re trying your hand at Steamboat Springs nordic skiing, we have compiled local trails from beginner to expert levels below!

 

Ski Touring Center

For those who are new to the sport, a trail well-traversed by locals is positively the way to go.  Steamboat Ski Touring Center is an ideal place to try your hand at this sport. The Ski Touring Center not only has miles of snowshoeing trails, but they have some of the best cross-country and skate skiing trails around. Keep your eye out for seasonal rentals, multi-day passes or full season passes. The Ski Touring Center offers lessons as well with reservations. Skiers can buy equipment or clothing out of the outfitter shop before fueling up with a warm lunch at The Picnic Basket Cafe. Get yourself outside and participating in this awesome sport!

Haymaker Nordic Center

Haymaker is another similar trail system to Lake Catamount. Large vistas and groomed tails provide easy terrain, great for the meandering Nordic skier. It is maintained for beginners, making this an ideal place to test the waters. However, this is also a great place for more experienced skiers to work on fine-tuning their own techniques. There are 10 kilometers of classic and skate ski trails that allow skiers to take in the view of Mount Werner on one side and the Flat Tops Wilderness Area on the other. Between laps on the Rabbit Ears or the Yampa View loops, visitors can get lunch at the Haymaker Bar and Grill while warming up. An updated trail report, as well as prices and hours can be found on the Steamboat Spring Nordic skiing website.

 

Rabbit Ears

To avoid the beginner courses and crowds of a Steamboat winter, head to the endless terrain located at Rabbit Ears Pass. There are miles and miles of untamed, ungroomed backcountry trails. Therefore, these trails should be trekked along by the more experienced Nordic skier. In addition, it is also best led by an individual who is familiar with the pass and its dense terrain. Rabbit Ears is located out of the way of civilization, where there are no facilities. Therefore, you should pack your own water, food, extra layers and whatever else you may need — and always be prepared for changing weather conditions.

Bike the ‘Boat!

Summertime biking is one of Steamboat’s many hobbies. From cruises on the core trail to participate in the Town Challenge, men, women and children alike never say no. Most families won’t pass up an opportunity to pedal around on the best Steamboat Springs bike trails. When staying with us in Steamboat Springs, check out some of our incredible biking trails throughout the summer and fall. We have plenty of recommendations! 

The Yampa Valley Core Trail

For those who prefer to cruise around town, the Yampa Valley Core Trail is perfect for all ages and all experience levels. This 7.5 mile paved trail runs riverside through downtown Steamboat, while it remains uncrowded and perfect for families. Therefore, it provides a pleasant journey into the heart of Steamboat. When staying on the mountain, it is even accessible through a smooth-sailing ride from the hill. Be ready for that uphill battle on the way back, though! Along the way, stop at the Yampa River Botanic Park, Bud Werner Memorial Library, or one of our many delicious eateries and breweries. This is a great way to dip your toes into the biking community and see how you do.

Road Biking

With tons of loops and rides for road bikers, people come from all over the state and all over the country to test their skills on our terrain. From cruising up and down Rabbit Ears Pass or the challenging route to South Routt on 131, there are many scenic areas to try out road biking. Elk River Road allows for a 36, 49, 62, and 73.5 mile ride, therefore allowing you to choose your distance and difficulty with ease. With road biking, of course, comes safety and rules of the road as well. Always stay visible, use hand signals, and wear your helmet. Share the road regardless of if you’re on the bike or on the road. We recommend this for more experienced road bikers, as there can be traffic along these stretches of road as well as tight shoulders for the bikers. 

Mountain Biking

Mountain biking is a sport Steamboat locals frequent — the Town Challenge being the first example of that. For a first stab at mountain biking, try Buffalo Pass and Long Lake Loop for a quick 14 miles. For those who want to progress in their sport, Emerald Mountain Trail System provides easy, moderate and difficult biking, therefore making this is great for those who want to track their progress.  In the summer, Steamboat Mountain even allows you to haul your bike up to the top and cruise over the snowless ski runs! Load your bike onto the chair lift and cruise all the way down — one of the best parts of summer here in Steamboat. 

Whether you are new to biking or looking to test your skills, Steamboat has a diverse and close-knit biking community. It allows you to interchange the sport and constantly challenge yourself. You’ll experience different terrains with gorgeous scenic views, and also find opportunities to introduce your children to this active sport as well.

History of the Rodeo

The beginning of the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo is known to go back more than a century. It is not know for certain when Steamboat Springs hosted its first organized rodeo competition, however mentions of competitive rodeo events date back to at least 1898. Steamboat has been been a long-standing Western town. It was full of cowboys and cowgirls, and horses that were bred for work, and cattle drives down Lincoln. The local cowboys’ casual betting often led to impromptu rodeo-type competitions.
