Full review

We try to get our kids out a few times a year during the Christmas Holiday and/or Spring Break. Steamboat has been our standby for our trips because we really enjoy the people of Steamboat, the staff and the quality of the experience. Even when crowded, the lift lines are very reasonable. The only drawback is that most of the beginner terrain are narrow cat tracks and that limits the true downhill experience for our younger kids. However, there is a lot of great snow and intermediate/expert runs that can keep you busy for a week of skiing.
