The closest airport to Steamboat is Yampa Valley Regional Airport (HDN), 20 miles west of the resort. United is the only year-round major carrier, but during winter months carriers include American (from Dallas/Ft. Worth and Chicago), Delta (from Minneapolis and Atlanta), Frontier (from Denver), and Continental (from Houston). If you’re on a budget first look at flying into Denver (DEN) approximately three hours to the southwest and renting a car or booking a Go Alpine shuttle (see below).
From The Airport
Check first with your lodging provider to see if airport shuttles are included with your stay. If they aren’t —and that will be the case if you’re flying into Denver International—plan on renting a car or booking a shuttle through Go Alpine (800-343-RIDE), which offers transportation from both airports. Shared service and private airport limo service from HDN can also be arranged with Storm Mountain Express (877-844-8787). Just don’t expect any public transportation, it doesn’t exist.
Getting Around Once You’re There
You don’t strictly need a car. Steamboat’s base area is pedestrian-friendly, and so is downtown Steamboat Springs (located four miles from the resort), but getting between the two requires wheels. As you consider lodging options, check their shuttle service: Some (but not all) provide rides to the lifts or to town. No shuttle? Ask about bus-stop proximity. Steamboat Springs operates a free bus system linking the base area to the town and area condos. Buses run every 20 minutes from 6 a.m. until almost 2 a.m.
