As a child and teenager, my family went on ski vacations to Colorado almost every winter. After graduating college, I even took a job in Colorado and lived there for a while. Yet, somehow, I’d never made it to Steamboat Springs.
This fall, I finally had the chance to visit Steamboat and it totally lives up to the hype of the quintessential ski town (or “snowboard town” if you’re like me). There is a charming downtown with lots of shops and so many restaurants. There is even a little feel of “the old west.” And the views are just amazing…I couldn’t help but be in constant awe of the beautiful mountains.
You can fly directly into Steamboat but I chose to fly into Denver and make the drive – Colorado is just so gorgeous I wanted to soak it all in. I stayed right on the mountain – ski in/ski out – and it was perfect. The units were nice, clean and comfortable and the staff was so friendly. The mountain wasn’t open yet, but while I was visiting they got their first snowfall of the year…it’s really a magical feeling!
