About Steamboat Springs, Colorado
Steamboat Springs is a world-class ski-resort and ranching area located in the northwest corner of Colorado, just an hour from Vail, Colorado and two hours from Denver Colorado.
Known for its authentic community, Olympian Mecca and “Champagne-Powder” snow, the town and resort of Steamboat Springs sits at an elevation of 9681 ft and encompasses one of the more attainable mountain-living experiences in Colorado.
Historically, the ski resort has drawn the most visitors to Steamboat during the winter months, however a recent significant balance of revolving population during all seasons can be attributed to the growing arts community, the expanding college and the recent purchase of the Ski Area to Alterra Ski Corp, a KSL partner and introduction to the well-received IKON pass, connecting pass holders to its ever-expanding portfolio of destinations.
