  • This is a great mountain for a group with a variety of ski levels. From beginners to more advanced skiers, everyone found an enjoyable run. We found the "Sunnyside" to be particularly fun skiing...

  • This was our first time skiing out west and second time skiing overall. We found the ski school incredible beneficial and worth every cent. The staff was over the top helpful and the resort was well kept. The trails were only 25% open when we went (December 2020) due to lack of snow but that didn’t slow us down one bit. They had trails for miles with gorgeous views and fun routes down the mountain. The town of Steamboat was a lot of fun as well, with great dining, shopping, and you can’t miss the Strawberry Hot Springs! It’s a beautiful but long drive from Denver to get here, but we hope to be back someday!
  • If you are an experienced skier, this is the place to go! They have a great variety of intermediate and above runs. Not as big as other places like Copper, but still good. If you are a beginner, know there is a limited amount of beginner runs and many are traverse style runs that are more narrow, road like than wide open green runs you can spread out on. That was my only disappointment for my kids. The beginner runs at steamboat didn't hold a candle to the wide open, long greens at so many other resorts where the kids can really work their turns across an entire run. The beginner lift area is again a relatively small, narrow set of runs. That said, the instructors are top notch, so even if you do come know the kids will have amazing instructors. The only other downside I noticed when compared to other resorts is the lift signage. Very hard to tell what lift you are coming up to until you are pretty much in the lift line, unlike others where the name is prominent and large on the lift canopy.
