  • The Sheraton and their staff are phenomenal! Just ask and they are right there for you! Couldn't ask for a better view! 5 STARS!!!  more »
  • Steamboat is graced with hundreds of inches of powder snow each year--a few recent years neared 500 inches, enough for the most avid snowboarders or skiers. What my wife liked the most is that as an a...  more »

  • The town is soo cute! The bus system is free and drops you off right at the slopes and back into town. Not a ton of greens to choose from- I think Copper has a better selection. But if you have a ski pass you can ride the gondola for free and get to the higher slopes or just go up for a drink and enjoy the views! There are also great fishing spots in and just outside of town. Plus a great path that winds along the river and through town. They have done a great job with their riverside access and everything in this town seems well maintained and carefully planned. Would definitely go again!
  • Mt. Werner is great, and there are great food, drink, lodging, and shopping options. But we've come back six years in a row, and will for as long as I can imagine, because of the people and the feel of the resort and the town. If you come without an attitude, and you're there to enjoy Steamboat, you'll find almost everyone you meet is welcoming and will go above and beyond to make you feel at home and point you to the best places. Steamboat has become our home away from home, and we've made friends we stay in contact with throughout the year.
  • Wow. Big vertical. Tons of terrain and amazing tree skiing. If I was visiting Colorado I'd make this my destination for a lot of reasons including the fact that the town is under 7000 feet vs summit county that is over 9000 feet. When I stayed in Dillon I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. Go here at least once in your life.
  • Excellent skiing and my favorite place I've skied at, by far. Plenty of varied terrain for every skill level except those looking for the steepest terrain. There are a good number of places to grab something to eat and drink at various places on the mountain. Steamboat seemed fairly family friendly and I saw plenty of kids taking lessons. The town is easy to get to via the free bus that comes every 10 minutes during the day and every 20 minutes at night. There are plenty of good restaurants there as well as some shopping.
  • Great ski resort. Not crazy packed for spring break. Plenty of runs and places to explore for all levels. Nice long runs, lots of food / bathroom options on the mountain. Morningside is fun with trees for intermediate skiers spaced nicely apart... good quiet area for some falls and good laughs.

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.
