  • We went for the "free Sundays" experience. Super nice staff, they open at 10am but they gave us our free lift tickets at 9:45am, which helped.

  • We were a group of 4. Two of us came here to ski and two to snowboard and we were all new to the sport. We felt that this was a great place to come and learn in a quieter ski area. Lots of locals...

  • Went for ski free Sunday and it was such a nice local ski hill. The vibe is definitely that of a close knit community of folks who love being there making it run and enjoying it. Snack bar had tons of food and drinks, and they have guys you can rent out as well. The trails are plenty of fun to hone your skills and generally have a blast. Gorgeous views to boot. I got to ride the new lift on it's first day in operation, so that was a cool bonus. Definitely worth a visit to get a piece of the history of skiing in the US AND put down some laps!
  • This was a great experience for my kids (9 ask 12). Free skiing on Sundays was a great way to be welcomed to Steamboat. We had just arrived in town and picked up gear. It was so easy to park. We spent 3 days skiing here and accommodated all skill levels. It was a perfect size for us. The other days costs about $50/day. We even saw an international downhill competition here one night.
