Steamboat ski area has skiing for all abilities - double expert to beginner - and plenty of terrain for all of the above. Our family ranged from the ones who hiked up to the St Pats/Chutes double black area and skied the trees to those who stayed in lessons the whole week and enjoyed the rough rider basin. The best part of all is how easy it was for us to all meet at any time during the at the base or mid mountain. All the runs seem to be easy to traverse from one area to the next. we will be back!
