Steamboat Ski Resort / Alterra Mountain Company



Four minutes from downtown, Steamboat’s world-class ski resort has long been known for its “Champagne PowderTM.” When snow falls in the Yampa Valley, it’s typically some of the lightest in the state due to Steamboat’s unique northwest Colorado location. With over 350 inches of snowfall each year, odds are you will have plenty of epic powder days.

The Steamboat Ski Area was created, not with lots of outside influence and capital, but by local ranchers, mechanics, businessmen and other locals passionate about the sport of skiing. Recently acquired by Alterra Mountain Company, Steamboat Springs is poised to benefit from the marketing strength of a company that includes Aspen, Deer Valley, Mammoth Mountain and Squaw Valley, among others. A new Ikon season pass, debuts in the 2018/19 season and will bring new and more affluent visitors to Steamboat Springs and is expected to drive investment and development at the base area. Never far from its ranching roots, Steamboat remains firmly linked to a Western tradition that sets it apart from every other ski resort in the world.
