Steamboat summers are always filled with fun events that everyone can enjoy. Once May ends, the town launches full force into fun event mode, with great Happy Hours and great things to do outside of the normal hiking, biking, and fishing that you do in Steamboat in June. Here’s a compiled list of some of these events that you can go out to enjoy!

June 1: Yampa Valley River Festival

The Yampa Valley River Festival is a Kayak and Rafting competition held at the Bud Werner Memorial Library to commemorate the wildness of the Yampa River.

Looks like one of the craziest times of the year is coming up —  Sunday will be the Steamboat Marathon!

For those of you who haven’t experienced the marathon yet, on June 2nd Steamboat will shutdown its mainstreet from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. to allow for runners to participate in either the 10K, Half Marathon, or Full Marathon. This race is pretty famous in the running community, having been cited as one of the top 9 destination half-marathons in Runner’s World, and being a locally-recognized turning point from spring to summer in Steamboat.

Registration for the race ends at 5 p.m., Saturday, June 1. Even if you aren’t competing, come down to cheer on the racers and enjoy the community event!

Speaking from experience, I participated in the 10k

Yesterday our staff participated in the United Way Day of Caring. At Routt County LiftUp we cleaned the store, shelves, and windows, and sorted through donations.

 

As a part of our team's goal to "Keep Steamboat Special," we often donate our time to assist in projects around town. Most recently we have painted the "kitty land" of the Routt County Humane Society and also donate to The Yampa Valley Community Foundation every time we close a transaction.

 

Thanks to everyone who came out to help!

No matter the season, there are always fun things to do around town. Looking for an awesome activity to do during spring? Our staff has got you covered with some great recommendations!

Allison’s Recommendation

Biking the Core Trail

The Core Trail is a popular bike and walking path that runs along the Yampa River and through Steamboat. Around the trail are several scenic stops including the Yampa River Botanic Park and Fetcher Pond, a stocked fishing pond where families can fish, play, or just enjoy the natural beauty surrounding them. Allison’s family just went to Fetcher Pond to go fish, and she’s happy that because of the warmer weather she and her family can ride their bikes along the Core Trail to the pond.

The charm and character of Ski Town USA doesn't end at the base area. Surrounding Steamboat Springs are some of the most amazing "small towns" you will ever set foot in.

South of Steamboat lie the towns of Oak Creek, Yampa, and Phippsburg (which locals call P-Burg). Small grocery stores, family-owned restaurants, SOROCO schools, and quaint coffee shops line the streets. Neighborhood parks and biking trails bring adventure to your back yard.

Head north of Steamboat towards the Zirkel Wilderness area and Steamboat Lake. On the way, you pass through the ranching town of Clark. Stop in the Clark County store for groceries, provisions, and most importantly, lunch. Take a right on Seedhouse Rd for some of the best hiking, snowmobiling and backcountry skiing
