There is No Off-Season

Soak up the sun and the perfect air while enjoying dazzling mountain views that will make you want to break out into song. The hills are alive, and the best way to experience them is on the Christie Peak Express chairlift, which offers scenic chairlift rides and access to lower mountain bike park trails.

Hot Air Ballooning

If you ever dreamed of floating quietly above Steamboat in the comfort of a hot air balloon, Wild West Balloon Adventures offers early-morning flights over the Yampa Valley, complete with a complimentary breakfast and a glass of champagne!

Location: The launch field is located at 36005 East Highway 40 on Dougherty Rd. To get there, take Mt. Werner Drive to Highway 40, turn left and head east on the highway, then make a right onto Dougherty Road to the launch field. 

Hot Springs

Just 7 miles outside of Steamboat is one of the most popular and attractive hot springs facilities in Colorado. Strawberry Park Hot Springs is truly a can’t-miss Steamboat experience that is open year-round. 

Kayaking

Both the Yampa River and the Elk River provide excellent water for kayakers of all levels. If you’re a beginner or would like to brush up on your kayaking skills, the Mountain Sports Kayak School offers 3-hour group lessons every day of the summer.

Rock Climbing

For summer excitement, it doesn’t get much better than rock climbing in the wilderness around Steamboat. You can arrange an expedition through Rocky Mountain Ventures for you and your family or for a large group. They will customize your trip for all skill levels and ages, including children as young as 6. Rise above your fear of heights!

Rodeo

Steamboat’s very own Pro Rodeo Series is the most successful weekly rodeo in the USA. The series has been the heart and soul of the Steamboat summer calendar since the 70s and has now been expanded to include a rodeo event at Romick Arena every Friday and Saturday evening from mid-June to mid-August.

You can take a dip in either scenic Steamboat Lake, the lazy Yampa River, or you can head to Old Town Hot Springs, which is the primary rec center in Steamboat. It features an Olympic-sized pool, several jacuzzis, and a kiddie pool with fun animal toys.

Floating through town on the Yampa River is easily one of the most iconic and truly relaxing of all the summer activities in Steamboat. Tubing is an excellent way to cool off as you float down the lazy rapids and catch some warm rays of sunshine.

Whitewater Rafting

Among the greatest recreational assets Steamboat boasts are the wonderful rivers in its vicinity. Because of this, there are wide-ranging rafting opportunities available, from the easygoing stretches of the Yampa River closeby to the intermediate rapids of Elk River and Arkansas River to the whitewater gauntlet of the harrowing Cross Mountain Canyon. 

Just For Kids

There is a good reason why Steamboat is consistently ranked as one of the most family-friendly resort towns. Yampatika offers a wonderful summer program of 2-hour nature activities and week-long nature-themed camps for children 3-11. Steamboat offers the Kids’ Adventure Club weekdays from mid-June to mid-August, giving your kids a wide array of activities to enjoy while you pursue your own Steamboat adventures.
