Ski Town USA
An internationally known ski resort, Steamboat Springs sits in the shadow of Mount Werner in north central Colorado. Far less showy than Aspen or Vail, the town of 1,200 residents is a no-nonsense ski town, catering to diehard skiers and snowboarders. The core of Steamboat retains its small-town charm, with quaint shops and restaurants run by locals. The area's natural, geothermally warmed mineral hot springs provide a place to soak or swim. A year-round attraction for vacationers from around the country, the town is almost as popular in summer as in winter, offering plenty of opportunities to kayak, raft, and tube on the Yampa River. Steamboat's municipal buses provide free rides all year long, making every part of town quickly and easily accessible regardless of weather conditions. Make your own Steamboat Springs vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our United States trip itinerary maker app.
