As you go down 730 m (2,400 ft), you'll be able to control the sled at your desired speed--this is a good activity for kids (younger than 6 must go with their parents).

  • Our group of five women various ages went down the Alpine slide. Enjoyed it and some wanted to go for a second time, but weather did not allow.  more »

  • A real hit and miss, depending on which 'sled' you get. I literally had to pull myself along using the sides of the track. Once the person behind me came zooming up, I had to get off the track to let them pass, so that their money wasn't wasted too.
  • Reasonably priced, minimal wait time and kids loved it!
  • Fun for kids, very safe. Kind of expensive but I think it goes to a non-profit.

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.
