Few places in the world feature year-round excitement, but Steamboat Springs is one such city. Nicknamed "Ski Town, USA," Steamboat Springs is a winter wonderland and a summer playground prized for its wealth of outdoor recreation. In the span of a few months, you can launch your mountain bike down winding mountain trails and glide down the same slopes on your skis or snowboard. And, with a stay at one of the many hotels in Steamboat Springs, you can experience all of that, as well as the city's rich history of ranching, mining, and homesteading.
Out and About in Steamboat Springs
Steamboat Springs hotels are celebrated for their comfort and hospitality, but the city likes to keep its visitors active.
