Where to go to take that EPIC photo while you’re in town. 

8. Main Street

Now we don’t recommend taking a picture in the middle of a street, but stealing a quick pic when Main Street is closed for 4th of July or Winter Carnival can lead to some fantastic pictures. Get a shot of both downtown’s western feel and our main mountain from this angle.

 

7. Rabbit Ears Pass

Driving over Rabbit Ears is always a welcome sight, especially for the weary traveler returning home. Taking pictures of the famous rock formation makes the homecoming even more sweet!

Ever wonder how friends and family can visit you in a matter of hours while living in Steamboat?

The answer is our beautiful airport! Ask anyone in Steamboat- they probably know a few people who work there, making it the most social airport experience in the nation. Seriously, going to the airport is like a party. My mom always loves driving me to the airport so that she can visit her friends working.

The Hayden airport is 45 minutes away from Steamboat. There are flights to Denver daily, but recently the airport has scheduled more flights across the US for skiers, riders, and anyone else that wants to visit!

Check out the flight schedule below to see if you or your friends can book any trips!

Some locals, visitors, and newbies alike have noticed that Steamboat’s famous gondola has been under construction.

That’s because the gondolas are being replaced with a $15 million dollar new system that will decrease gondola ride time from 12 minutes to 10 minutes as well as add 12 additional cars. This system will improve ski experience in general, and we’re so excited about it!

Feeling nostalgic for the old cabins?

That is completely understandable. But luckily you’ll have the opportunity to bid on these historic pieces of Steamboat’s past!

Steamboat Ski Resort will be donating several of these gondolas to local Steamboat charities to help them fundraise. Already two have been auctioned off, but other nonprofits are looking to sell
