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!

 

Lake Catamount

Lake Catamount also provides Nordic tours for skiers. There are tons of trails along Lake Catamount throughout the valleyed area. The property even provides a convenient service rental shop and a log cabin to warm you up post-ride. Therefore, Lake Catamount is a great place to try your hand at Nordic. There are both classic and skate ski rentals available on site, and a quick call ahead of time can assure there are plenty in stock. Catamount caters to skiers of all levels with trail maps guiding them to beginner, intermediate and expert terrain. Grooming reports, prices and hours are listed at the Steamboat Nordic Center website. With plenty of easy terrain, this is a great choice when strapping on your Nordic skis for the very first time.

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.

Whether you’re around Steamboat, checking out North Routt, or hanging in the Soutt Routt Flat Tops, there are no shortage of great hikes.

Fish Creek Falls – Steamboat Springs

Just a short drive from downtown Steamboat, this is the perfect family-friendly hike. A short 1/4-mile walk down a gravel path is a pristine view of the lower falls.

This trail tends to be busy on weekends, so plan your trip to Fish Creek Falls accordingly to enjoy a more serene hike.
