  • We had a few activities planned for our vacation and then the rest of it, we played by ear. Some of the places we called, seemed almost annoyed just to answer the phone, but not Howelsen Ice Arena. I ...  more »

  • Howelson Ice Arena was the highlight of our family trip to Steamboat!! Very affordable and so much fun! I was there with my husband and my 2 year old. We put her on skates and she had a blast with my husband guiding her around the ice. Then we all went on the ice bumper cars!! I am pregnant and was still able to get out there. My husband held my daughter on her lap. The impact wasn’t very high. But so much fun zooming around the ice and spinning! And the joy on my daughters face was priceless.
  • This is the only place where I have ever seen bumper cars on ice. It was a ton of fun. They let you ride them for 20 minutes and the area where they let you ride is decently sized (half of the arena). In addition, after you ride you can ice skate on the other half of the arena. So it is definitely worth the price and worth seeing during a stay in Steamboat Springs.
  • We came to this rink to have fun on their ice bumper carts. It was awesome! It was also perfect since it was raining outside and wanted to entertain the kids (we were having as much fun as the kids were). We went the week of Aug 7-11,2017. I can't remember the day. Maybe Tuesday. If you are on vacation and need something fun to do, especially if rain ruins the outdoor plans, this is the spot to go to! Rain or shine, you'll have a great time!

Where to stay in Steamboat Springs

As with most of the country's ski resorts, room rates increase with proximity to the slopes in Steamboat Springs. Expect to pay the highest rates during the winter holidays, as well as at the peak of the summer season. One of the most economical ways to stay near the slopes is to choose one of the area's inns. These offer every comfort of home at a fraction of the price charged by the big resorts and chain hotels.
