Steamboat Springs may look like one of the ordinary medium-sized cities scattered throughout Colorado, but it is hard to find a place in Colorado that is not special in some way! In our case, the surrounding natural landscape features several hot springs, including one with a special chugging sound that provided the town’s name when settlers first arrived. You can still choose from over 150 local hot springs during your stay at one of our Steamboat Lodging Properties and see for yourself what all the “steam” is about!
Today, the area is best known for the Steamboat Springs Ski Resort. It’s located just south of the town, on the slopes of Mt. Werner. During summer, the nearby Yampa River provides a variety of water sports, including: fishing, kayaking, whitewater rafting and tubing. Because this is the Rockies, plenty of on-land hiking and biking opportunities are also nearby. Notable among other ski resort towns, Howelsen Ski Area, the oldest continually operating in Colorado, can be found here.
No matter when you visit, you’re sure to love what Steamboat Springs vacations have to offer year-round–outdoor invigoration and renewal among the mountain scenery of Northern Colorado.
For the kind of vacation most can only dream of, within the ideal accommodations for it, choose a condo or home from Steamboat Lodging Properties and enjoy your stay in a complete mountain paradise.
