A popular resort town in the northwestern Colorado Rockies, Steamboat Springs is the most accessible ski and snowboard destination in western Colorado. Daily flights from around the country bring winter travelers to a small mountain town with two adjacent ski areas, one of which has trained dozens of Olympic athletes. In summer, visitors can explore the nearby mountains on foot or bike, or enjoy one of several annual traditions including a hot air balloon festival and a marathon.
Steamboat Springs is nestled in the Yampa River Valley, with the stately peaks of the Park Range in the background. It's a pretty three-hour drive from Denver or a four-hour drive from Grand Junction.
