Steamboat Reviews & Tips (11)

Hmmm.... Steamboat vs. Vail. Let's check the numbers.... Online lift ticket price per day, Steamboat $126, Vail $165. Current snowfall as of 12/22, Steamboat 133 inches, Vail 106 inches. Major lift line wait times, Steamboat 0-5 minutes, Vail 30-40 minutes. Seems like Steamboat wins hands down. Skiing in general is expensive, not sure where everyone else is getting their numbers. Went to Vail 12 years ago, condo at base was so expensive we decided to invest in one at Steamboat instead, best thing we ever did. Buy the early bird 6 day pass by June 1st, only $499 with no blackout days.

Skied the Boat several years ago and loved it, so when a buddy offered up his condo I was thrilled...... until I saw the current lift prices and no deals.... this will be my LAST trip to the Boat and I'll only be skiing ONE day. If the Boat wants to see only the Rich-n-famous.... there`s lots of other great places in CO, NM, NV, even upstate NY. The only POW they can really claim is their affect on you wallet! Greed ruins everything it touches.

Steamboat is home to epic pow. Period. waahhh I want discounts. Yeah? You want a discount on champagne powder? Go to another mountain. I am from NY, but I only ski west coast as it is head and shoulders above anything east coast has to offer. And I have to say that the powder I have gotten at the boat drop a deuce on anything I have skied elsewhere, and I have epic days elsewhere. it is just the consistency of how nice it is at the boat. Besides, greens? bulldoze for greens? really? This is a mountain for intermediate to advance riders who mix in some woods, glades, and back country. This is not for the weak.

If I knew the lift tickets are so expensive I would have gone to Aspen...

I must say it is very disappointing to read these reviews, as a yearly west coast skier since 2005, this being my first winter CO. trip, i find the discounts to be a real consideration in my trip plans and seeing there are none here will have me re-think next years trip and go where there is always a deal, lets hope for a great experience to offset the cost?

Only thing I dislike about Steamboat is the $160 shuttle from the airport for the two of us. I go early March, during my son's Spring Break and the snow is still good to excellent. Yes, it is pricey, but not like that time I decided to go to Aspen, ugh. Please lower cost of transport to airport!!!

Steamboat springs is the home of a perfect mountain and climate.The problem is the resort.I first came here in the late 70'S,lived and skied here in the late 80'S and as a parent I have returned several times with my family,this is not a family resort unless you can afford to throw hundred dollar bills in the fireplace.I will let you do your own homework but as an avid skier I hate to say it but I have found better powder,smaller lift lines,friendlier staff.and even colder beer for an entire week for the price of one day at steamboat.this hurts to say because this is a first class mountain managed by a half-a!! resort greed destroyed this ski area.

Speaking on behalf of those that know what constitutes a quality ski area (aka skied in CO for last 25 yrs), my rankings of top CO resorts in order: -Snowmass -Vail -Steamboat -Copper -WP -Telluride

You guys are funny, if there is better skiing in summit county (breck, a-basin, keystone, etc) than ski there, and tell all your friends to ski there. Yes you get better "deals" on lift tickets but you also have 30-45 min lines for EVERY chair. "invest in bulldozers to widen the greens" are you crazy? Go ski breck with the rest of the tourists. Steamboat is unlike any other mtn, I have never heard anyone that is here complain about anything. We don't have the steeps, wide open bowl skiing, but we do have 3600 vertical and powder, powder and more powder, sure the other commentators on this thread are also those asking the liftie where to find the grooming report when we had 24" overnight (happened the other week and I'm 99% certain he had a TX accent, or it might have been the cowboys starter jacket and jeans he was rocking that made me think he was from TX). Ski Town USA for a good reason.

First decent deal I have seen for Steamboat. 3 days lift + Base Club access for 2 people. It works out to $93 per lift ticket, $16 off the window price and $6 off the advanced purchace price. The + is you get access to the Base Club for free!! I would rather see a less expensive ticket and no base club, Still an expensive ticket, actually it is more than my one way plane fare!!

Skied blues and greens Feb. 2012. Greens are nothing more than service roads. Owners could invest in a bulldozer to widen the greens. Have seen better grooming at most other places. The boat is still the most beautiful place I have skied. Good base area. Great town.
