Steamboat Springs is an excellent skiing destination in the mountains of Colorado. Best known as the home of Steamboat Ski Resort, the town hosts skiers from all over looking to shred some of Colorado's famous slopes. The town is small and most visitors look for accommodations that will give them easy access to Steamboat.
When not skiing, some visit the geothermal springs to help them warm up after a long day in the cold.
The best time to visit Steamboat Springs is in the winter when you'll have access to the resort. Try to avoid the usual ski rush reasons if you're looking for lighter crowds. It's also gorgeous in the summer, when visitors come to relax and take dips in the river and the springs.

A stay in town would not be complete without a visit to Steamboat Ski Resort, the home of world-class skiing and snowboarding facilities. The ski area has become famous for its Champagne Powder, situated across seven mountain peaks overlooking the Yampa Valley. However, the town offers a lot more than just skiing, other activities including horseback riding, tubing, snowmobiling are snowshoe tours are all very popular. If you are interested in these winter activities, look for a Steamboat condo nearer to the slopes rather than a town home.
Once you have had your fill on the slopes, warm up at Strawberry Park Hot Springs, one of the most spectacular mineral springs in the world. The pools are a balmy 104 degrees, and are the perfect way to relax after a long day of skiing or hiking in the surrounding hills. While there, why not relax further with a massage in one of the private huts, or enjoy watsu therapy in a private pool.
For truly spectacular mountain views, head to Fish Creek Canyon, where fresh alpine water tumbles over the rocks into the incredible 280-ft Fish Creek Falls, one of the most photographed destinations in the area. Each season brings something different to the falls. In the spring the tumbling water is at its roaring peak thanks to all the fresh snowmelt, whereas in winter, the more adventurous travelers don their ice-climbing gear and take to the famous face. Yampa River Botanic Park sits at an altitude of 6,8800 ft, and surprisingly is one of the coldest places in the area thanks to the cold air flowing down the mountains into the valley. The park has been transformed into a unique botanical garden split into various individual gardens, and can be a relaxing place to spend a few hours. Additionally, Steamboat Lake State Park gives visitors a fantastic opportunity to explore nature at its fullest. The park offers camping, fishing, trails, boating, and much more. The park transforms into a completely different place in the winter months, when snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing takes place in the valley around the mountains.
