“Steamboat Springs family holiday ski trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We found Steamboat Springs to be an excellent option for the entire family. The gondola line never took more than 10 minutes even in the most busy time which was about 10:00 a.m. The staff was always friendly and knowledgeable.
We loved the fact that the sidewalk area in Gondola Square is now heated. This made walking around much easier that would have been the case otherwise. The number and variety of stores and restaurants was also very good.
My only complaint would be that the difficulty of the various "Blue" slopes was far too broad. From the extremely simple "Tomahawk" that required us to pole through some areas to the incredibly difficult "Heavenly Daze" that was supposed to be the way back to the base area at the end of a long day. I have visited a half dozen other ski areas in the Rockies and in no place else would Tomahawk be anything other than a green and there is no way that Heavenly Daze should be anything other than a black. I assume the decision to make it blue is only because it would indicate that getting back to the base area could be more of a challenge than some may want. There are a couple of easier ways back to the base, but they are not as direct. For some reason this resort seems to reserve the green designation for the Cat-Trails only.
If your group is ready for the step up to a little more challenging mountain, this is the place. It is not for the faint of heart. We will be back and will enjoy it even more next time because of the education we picked up on this trip.

“I will never go back to Vail!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We were here Christmas week and it was the best snow they'd had in years and still we never waited more than 10 minutes for the gondola!! There's a great assortment of runs of all levels (my kids would've preferred more extreme slopes), plenty of lifts, great food options (our favorite was 4 Points "warming hut") and a great shuttle system from plenty of affordable lodging options! Great skiing in the midst of a full-on western town with great shops, restaurants, movie theaters, hot springs, etc. This resort has it all!

“Great Conditions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Steamboat offers a great mountain for all levels of skiers butt the advanced intermediate will have the most fun here. The gondola serves some excellent trails to the base as well as access to the two other peaks. The numerous high speed lifts are easy to get on and off. Grooming is performed nightly on many runs to provide cruisers with excellent slope conditions. Two mid-mountain restaurants provide toilet facilities and good lunch options. While not needed during our stay, the resort does have snow making capabilities to provide skiing during the dry times. The busy, active base of slopes by the gondola offers several dining and apre ski options after a day on the slopes. While advanced, expert skiers may get tired of this resort after a few days, intermediates and families with young skiers will be able to keep entertained at Steamboat for a good week.

“Great skiing and lots to do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Skiing is pretty much the best here. The powder really is tops - not that it's any different here, but they probably do get more powder than other resorts and their early season skiing is great! Only downside is that if you like to ski steep bowls some of the other resorts (vail, keystone) are better for that.

There are great restaurants and stores at the base of the gondola or you can take a 3-4 mile drive to downtown for boutique shopping and more restaurants.

Try the hot springs attraction toward the end of your trip or during a skiing rest day.
