“The Best (but keep it a secret!!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Great ski area and very friendly staff. They have really upgraded the food on the mountain. Mountain ambassadors are super cool and friendly. Love the cooks at the Thunderhead restaurants. Hopefully we'll have better snow this year!!!!!!

“Great skiing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

There is something for every level of skier at Steamboat and they have a great ski school. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The central reservation system is awesome. We have been 2 years in a row and will definitely go back.

“Small town, big mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Travelled this past January with a group of 7 friends and stayed in town at a rental house.

We skied 2 full days at Steamboat while there and saw as much as we could of the slopes. It's a very big, spread-out mountain which is nice because the layout spreads out the people and there are only a couple spots where we'd run into any busy runs or short lift lines.

The mountain is not as steep and demanding as many other CO ski resorts. I'd compare difficulty as slightly more challenging than Breckenridge.

Had the most fun on the Morningside (backside) part of the moutain. Early in the morning it was always deserted and had the best snow.

The only reason I'm not going to hurry back to Steamboat is because of its location. It's almost a 4 hr drive from the Denver airport. It's definitely worth at least one visit though.

“For skiers only”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Utterly boring and soulless - no reason to go up here if it's not ski season. $20 for a gondola ride to the top? Seriously?
