In the 1800s, cattle ranchers and fur trappers settled the area in a town later known as Steamboat Springs (named after the incredible hot springs found in the region) in the Yampa Valley. The town of Steamboat Springs is rich with Western culture, and is known for being home to “skiing cowboys.” The summer rodeo tradition is a highly anticipated annual event that has been held for over 100 years! Those looking to visit a charming, smaller town full of everything “wild west” and for plenty of opportunities for seeking adventure should look no further than Steamboat Springs.
The winter months in Steamboat Springs (December through March) bring perfect temperatures in the high 20s to low 40s for skiing and other winter sports. It is also a wonderful place to enjoy in the summer with comfortable temperatures in the 70s and low 80s June through August and its nearly endless list of events and activities.
The town offers a bus system for getting to local attractions, while destinations such as the hot springs and mountains will require a four-wheel drive vehicle to access safely.
