36 Hours in Steamboat Springs

By Elaine Glusac / Travel / The New York Times / nytimes.com / Nov. 28, 2019

“About 70 miles north of the I-70 corridor that feeds Colorado’s busiest ski areas, Steamboat Springs seems removed from the usual luxury designer shops and rampant condo development so often seen in ski towns these days. Local craft makers, artists, brewers and restaurant owners lend indie flair to the town’s main street, lined mostly with early-20th-century buildings.

Supplementing Steamboat’s “champagne powder” and Western appeal, improvements at Steamboat Ski Resort by its owner, Alterra Mountain Company — which also owns Deer Valley in Utah, and Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows in California in its 14-resort portfolio — include a new gondola that shortens the ride from 12 to less than 10 minutes and boosts capacity 38 percent to 3,600 people an hour. Given Steamboat’s in-town diversions, hot springs and variety of winter sports (including snowshoeing and biking), many visitors come without Alpine ambitions. The town makes it easy even for those without a car — free buses circulate nearly every 10 minutes in winter between downtown and the ski resort, supplemented by ride-sharing services....”

I love Steamboat! The community is incredibly friendly and lacks the pretentiousness of so many other CO ski resorts.
