Steamboat Springs was recently included in a New York Times article, “52 Places To Go in 2015“.   Our small Colorado mountain town is listed as #19 actually. Further validation for our community that we have something really special going on here.

It’s not just our world-class Steamboat Ski Resort or our naturally therapeutic hot springs. It’s not just the endless miles of mountain bike, skating and running trails used for any and every outdoor recreational activity you can think of. It’s not even having Colorado’s oldest continually operating ski area and winter sports club from which 88 Olympians have been produced, as the NYT article mentions.

Direct Flights to Steamboat Springs From Nearly Every Major US Hub

For being such a small town, Steamboat Springs does a good job of securing direct seasonal flights to and from our local airport (Steamboat/Hayden Airport – HDN). In fact, our resort economy depends on it.

Steamboat Ski Resort’s Opening Day Tradition

We are one week away from the official opening of our ski season here in Steamboat Springs! Since 1991 the Steamboat Ski & Resort has so generously supported the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club by giving its opening day, also known as “Scholarship Day“, revenues to the local Club. Since 1991/92, the Ski Resort’s Scholarship Day has raised nearly $850,000 for the Winter Sports Club. Pretty impressive, don’t you think? Tickets will be between $20 – $30 dollars. They will determine that soon. Depends on snow conditions and how many lifts will be open.

A Luxury Condo for All Seasons

Here in Steamboat Springs, we have a saying, “come for the winter, stay for the summer”. Everyone knows that we have incredible champagne powder in the winter, worthy of traveling from all corners of the world to ski or snowboard. What most people do not know, however, is that our summers are arguably even more fantastic and fun-filled than our winters.

Boatload of Festivities Set for Steamboat’s Closing Weekend

Over 406″ of snow fell on the summit of Mt. Werner at the Steamboat Ski Area this season making for a great year of skiing, snowboarding and other snow play. I hope you were lucky enough to enjoy some champagne powder while it was falling because this ski season is coming to an end.

Steamboat Tops Another List – Best Small Town

Steamboat Tops Another List – Best Small Town

I’ve written before about Steamboat Springs topping lists of greatest ski areas and such. Like last summer Dog Fancy Magazine named Steamboat “Dog Town USA”, stating that our community is “a mile-high mecca for dogs and their owners, embracing a love of canines in daily life and activities year-round.” I must agree, we are dog people here in Ski Town USA.

Does this photo need a caption?

Dogs love Steamboat, mud or snow.

Most recently, however, Smithsonian.com named Steamboat one of America’s 20 Best Small Towns to Visit. For this particular list, the Smithsonian was looking for places where at least per capita “cultural opportunities abound”. They highlighted the fact that Steamboat, in addition to our world-class black diamonds at Steamboat Ski Area, offers orchestral concerts and operas, a world-class music festival, free concert series, and great music year-round.

How Strawberry Park Got Its Name

How Strawberry Park Got Its Name

Steamboat Springs is full of history. Things you probably did not know and would not have expected, Ute Indian folklore, the legacy of producing Olympic athletes and how the town and neighborhoods got their names. Neighborhoods like our beloved and beautiful Strawberry Park. You don’t really expect strawberries to be prominent in a mountain town like Steamboat and yet….

(Written by Candice Bannister, Executive Director of Tread of Pioneers Museum in Steamboat Springs, for Steamboat Today on March 19, 2014.)

Did you know that even with our short growing season, the strawberry business flourished in Steamboat Springs between 1900 and 1916? It all started in 1900, when Lester Remington grew the soon-to-be-famous Remington berry on his land in the area now known as Strawberry Park.
