About the Steamboat Ski Area

Steamboat is actually a complete mountain range: Mount Werner, Sunshine Peak, Storm Peak, Thunderhead Peak and Christie Peak. 2,939 acres (1176 hectares) of permitted terrain offer a diversity of trails for all levels of ability. Gladed areas of Sunshine and Storm Peaks are Steamboat's particular claim to fame, with "champagne powder" in the trees for the most avid powder hounds. The Morningside Park Expansion opened 179 acres of new terrain at Steamboat. The four-phase Pioneer Ridge Expansion, is a 770-acre area of intermediate and advanced terrain to the north of the existing ski area.

Steamboat Ski Resort offers the remoteness of the Colorado Rockies, but is one of the easiest ski resorts to get to. We have the closest major airport of any major ski resort in Colorado or Utah, with non-stop and connecting flights from points nationwide and internationally.

For the complete ski vacation for families, couples and individuals, or for a full service convention facility, Steamboat Springs is the destination of choice.
