Backdoor Sports - Located along the river in downtown Steamboat. Rent an inner-tube and float down the Yampa River! Or learn how to navigate a Kayak! Rent sports equipment.
The Howler Alpine Slide - In the summer you can ride the chair lift up to the top, then howl down the 2400 foot slide. Located on on Howelson Hill. (970-871-1104)
Hahn's Peak Village - Here you can see many original miner's cabins. If someone is in the little shop, 'Things and Stuff', they'll usually give you the key so you can look inside the old Hahn's Peak School or the old jail.
Del's Triangle 3 Ranch - horseback riding
Steamboat Lake Outfitters - restaurant, snowmobile rentals, ATV tours, horseback riding, and more
We have two wonderful hot springs:
The Old Town Hot Springs in downtown Steamboat is great year-round with hot springs, swimming pools, workout rooms, cafe, etc. It's very convenient and relaxing after a day of skiing. I especially like to come here in the summer with my grandkids because of the swimming pools and slides.
My favorite is the Strawberry Park Hot Springs. I prefer the winter rather than summer, it is one of the most beautiful hot springs in the world. You do have to have a 4 wheel drive for winter or can get a ride with Sweet Pea Tours. This place is so fabulous.
Don't miss the Tread of Pioneers Museum in Steamboat. This delightful museum contains artifacts of the first residents of this area, in addition to an incredible collection of early ski gear.
Of course, there is fabulous downhill skiing in Steamboat in the winter, but don't forget that the lift is open most of the year. In summer, take a ride to the top for lunch, then ride or hike down. Mountain bike enthusiasts ride UP and down the ski trails, or for a fee, transport their bike up for the ride down. In Ski Time Square, there are summer activities for the kids, too.
Take a Hot Air Balloon ride! There is so much to do all year-round!
