Activities in Steamboat

Sleigh Rides

All the family will love a traditional sleigh ride! Bundle up and journey through the snow to a warm and welcoming ranch, then enjoy a delicious dinner, and live entertainment. Alternatively, you may prefer to take a cosy, private sleigh ride, with the added attraction of a bottle of champagne! In addition, there are special festive Sleigh Rides available over the Christmas and New Year periods.

Hot Air Ballooning

Enjoy the breath-taking mountain scenery around Steamboat from the unique vantage point of a hot air balloon! Suitable for all family members, hot air balloon rides take place every morning, weather permitting, and include a continental breakfast, a flight certificate, and a champagne ceremony.


A great activity for everyone, whether you are looking for a great winter workout, or simply a peaceful walk in a winter wonderland, it is hard to beat snowshoeing! To snowshoe in style, try the ‘Guided Gourmet Snowshoe’, where you snowshoe high on Mount Werner, admiring the breath-taking scenery as you go. At the tour’s culmination, enjoy a delicious gourmet lunch, and a well-deserved glass of wine!

Winter Fly Fishing

Enjoy a totally relaxing day on the river, a complete contrast to those ski slopes! You will be picked up from your accommodation, and equipped with everything you need. Transportation is provided to the river, where you will have the expert help of an experienced guide, and a thoroughly memorable day’s fishing is guaranteed!

Winter Horseback Riding

A wonderful, family-friendly adventure, suitable for ages 6 years, and older, enjoy the experience of exploring your beautiful, snowy surroundings, by horseback.

Strawberry Park Hot Springs

Found along the banks of the Hot Springs Creek are the most awe-inspiring mineral springs in the world! As the snow falls silently in the surrounding woods, relax in the 104-degree warmth of natural mineral water for an almost surreal experience.

Cinema and Culture

Sit back and enjoy a night at the movies! Steamboat offers a choice of two cinemas, with a total of 10 screens between them. Check the Bud Werner Memorial Library event schedule to see what is happening during your holiday in Steamboat, and enjoy.
