Things To Do

  • Geothermal Hot Springs
  • Night Skiing
  • Snowmobiling Tours
  • Snowshoeing
  • Tubing

Accessibility

While Denver International Airport sees more flights, Yampa Valley Regional Airport is located much closer to Steamboat. Depending on which airport you land in, you will need to get a rental car or take a shuttle service from the airport to the resort. GO Alpine Airport Shuttle is our preferred provider.

Recommended Airport:

  • Yampa Valley Regional Airport 28 mi (40 minute drive)
  • Denver Intl. Airport 180 mi (3.5 hour drive)

When To Go

January and February is the best time to visit Steamboat because they are the snowiest months to experience amazing Champagne powder! To skip the crowds, be sure to avoid Martin Luther King weekend and President's Day weekend.
