  • The ride to the top was half the fun. Great views of Steamboat ski resort. The ride was long and I would suggest getting two rides because the first one will thrill you and with the second you can hon...  more »
  • A bit pricey, but the ride up the chairlift provided some relaxation and nice views. Once at the top, you could see pretty much all of Steamboat - incredible! The slide itself was so much fun. As long...  more »
  • This is a great adventure and moneymaker for the Steamboat's winter sports club. Try it and I'm sure you'll like it! Get the coupon out of the coupon book and save two dollars per ride. And do it more...  more »

  • The ride up to the slide was nice and relaxing. However, the slides themselves were really SLOW! My husband and I both went down with young kids and our 9 year old alone. All three of us has the stick forward as far as it goes and we still had parts where we were scouting along. Price and service was great though. Plus they donate proceeds to local organizations. That's enough for me to continue to support this organization.
  • It was fun but seems a bit overpriced for the 15 minutes total of riding up there, waiting in line and somewhat slowly sliding down (it wasn't nearly as fast as we thought it would be). Still, it was okay... I'm unsure if we would do again BUT if you haven't done it's probably worth if it's something you wanted to do. Kids enjoyed it regardless!
  • This would be a great slide to bring your kids. It's not too fast, but still fun.
  • 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.
  • Pretty fun. Worth a stop. It's next to the rodeo too.
