Have you been curious what all of the yellow signs are about when you’re driving into Steamboat? Well look no further to discover Steamboat’s 114 year old clothing store, F.M. Light and Sons.

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!

Things to look forward to once it starts snowing

1. That moment when it first starts to snow

Or when you wake up in the morning and get excited because you see snow all around you for the first time since spring

2. Getting hot chocolate at Gondola Joe’s before/after going skiing

Better yet, drinking hot chocolate at Four Points Lodge looking at one of the best views in Steamboat

3. Seeing all of the holiday lights go up in town

Steamboat really gets into the holiday cheer. My favorite part about the holidays is meeting everyone on the gondola because they always are in Steamboat for the purpose of experiencing a storybook holiday season.

4. Soaking in the hot springs in the middle of a blizzard

The snow can’t get to you
