Steamboat Ski Resort
If you are looking for something new in Colorado for your ski trip, head up to Steamboat Springs. Steamboat is known for its incredible tree skiing for skiers of all abilities and its fluffy “champagne powder” snow. The town is situated in northern Colorado about three hours from Denver, which makes it a bit more secluded and uncrowded than some other ski resorts along the I-70 corridor.
Steamboat Resort is great for the whole family – it has enough steeps to satisfy the experts, but it’s also well known for its expansive and unintimidating intermediate terrain. Kid-friendly activities are plentiful and showcase Steamboat’s Wild West roots.
The base village has plenty of great happy hour spots, and revelers can head to the Double Diamonds bar afterward for a party that lasts all night. Finally, don’t miss the namesake hot springs, a fantastic way to relax after a day on the slopes.
