A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Ski Town Charm

Posted by Jon Wade on Thursday, May 9th, 2019 at 10:42am.

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 in North America. Continue on to Steamboat Lake for a day of SUP, boating, hiking, and camping.

Continue West through Steamboat towards the Yampa Valley Regional Airport. First, you pass through Milner, a small town just 10 minutes from Downtown Steamboat. Another 10 miles past Milner, you will reach Hayden. Stop in at Yampa Valley Brewing for a local beer or The Grainery for a yummy latte. Grocery stores, shopping, an ACE Hardware, and restaurants surround the downtown area. Plus, $50M in Grant funding will support the construction of a new school this next year. 

If you think we're speaking your language, then you won't want to miss out on these listings.
