We visited Steamboat in February of 2009. Oh my gosh - what a wonderful ski resort! It was my first time there, and my first time skiing in champagne powder - wow! All I can say is that I felt I was in a television commercial - everything was perfect! Breathtaking scenary, great ski runs and the sweetest, lightest powder I've ever had the pleasure of skiing on! And - lots to do besides skiing! Try the snow tubing and the cross country trails! Lots of friendly people, lots of clear, pristine mountain air, and very helpful staff. Will definitely be back!
