Steamboat Springs, also known as Ski Town USA®, is in the northwest corner of Colorado, a beautiful 3 hour drive from Denver. With world-class skiing and ﬂy ﬁshing, camping, endless biking and hiking trails, rodeos and golf, Steamboat Springs is a destination for year-round activities.
Best known for its epic powder and tree skiing, Steamboat gets an average of 330″ of snow each winter. Besides skiing, Steamboat is known for its other vibrant seasons, its gourmet restaurants, fashionable shopping, arts and culture, western heritage, and above all as a friendly, down-to-earth and welcoming community.
With a year-round population of about 12,000, Steamboat features many of the amenities found in larger, more urban areas: UCHealth, a full-service acute care hospital; The Bud Werner Memorial Library, a 28,000 sf state-of-the-art facility, Colorado Mountain College, an established community college offering some 4-year BA programs; and Yampa Valley Regional Airport, just 20 minutes from downtown Steamboat and offering daily flights to Denver as well as seasonal nonstop flights to 14 other major U.S. airports.
Steamboat’s “mountain” and “downtown” areas are approximately 3 miles apart, connected by the Core Trail—a paved biking and walking path for all ability levels that meanders along the banks of the Yampa River.
