Insider's Guide to Steamboat Springs

Famous for its world-class skiing and biking, Steamboat Springs is a relaxed ski, snowboard, bike, golf and fishing town, where western heritage meets outdoor adventure. The name of Steamboat Springs is thought to have originated around the early 1800s when French trappers thought they heard the chugging sound of a steamboat's steam engine. The sound turned out to be a natural mineral spring, to be named the Steamboat Spring.

Located 160 miles northwest of Denver, Steamboat is home to the Howelsen Hill ski area and the Steamboat ski resort, boasting 6 peaks including Mount Werner.
