The City of Steamboat Springs

The city of Steamboat Springs lies in the Yampa River Valley, located 160 miles from Denver, Colorado's capital city. It is the most populous city and the county seat of Routt County. The area was originally inhabited by the Yampatikas Utes, who were displaced to reservations in Utah by the United States Army.

Summer activities include fishing, tubing, rafting, and kayaking on the Yampa Valley River, biking the Yampa River Core Trail, and hiking the trails at one of the four state parks in the area. But naturally, it is skiing that put Steamboat Springs on the map. Although its mining and ranching heritage are still important, the area has become known as a world-class ski resort town.

Steamboat Springs is also home to several major events every year, including the Winter Carnival, the Steamboat Marathon, the Hot Air Balloon Rodeo, and the Mustang Roundup.

Do & See in Steamboat Springs

Spend a day wake-surfing on Steamboat Lake or pan for gemstones at the family-fun park - those are only a couple of pursuits available to visitors.
