How much will my vacation cost?

You need to consider all your anticipated costs when planning a vacation in Steamboat. 

If you are renting a home these should include:
  • Lodging rental
  • Airfares to Steamboat / Hayden (HDN) or Denver (DEN)
  • Airport transfer - Airport shuttle or rental car (rental/gas/insurance/airport fees)
  • Food for your group for the week
  • Lift tickets
  • Ski school
  • Equipment rental
  • Non-skiing activities
  • Housekeeping
For guests who opt to take the Luxury Catered Chalet package the list is shorter as many of the above items are included:
  • Lodging rental + Catered Chalet package
  • Airfares to Steamboat / Hayden (HDN) or Denver (DEN)
  • Lift tickets
  • Ski school
  • Equipment rental
  • Non-skiing activities

Can you save me money?

We are able to offer you many savings through discounted airfares and equipment rental which are available when combined with a lodging package.

Another factor to consider is that prices vary across the season according to demand - typically Christmas and New Year are the peak times; other times in the season may better suit people traveling on a budget. 

How many can come?

Our chalets can either accommodate groups of all sizes. For large groups we can create a package with multiple homes.

Can you help me find flights?

Our contacts with air seat wholesalers allows us the opportunity to access bulk fares on many routes. These fares are limited in numbers and we encourage you to inquire early to get the best deals.

Can I pre-arrange my lift tickets and ski rentals?

Our aim is to make your vacation hassle free. We will be delighted to organize your lift tickets for you so that they are ready when you arrive. If you need ski or snowboard equipment we rec0ommend Black Tie  Ski rentals who will fit you out in the convenience of your own chalet making your first day that much more relaxing.  Their equipment is second to none and their rates are competitive with all mountain rental stores.

Can I buy Travel Insurance?

We offer comprehensive travel insurance so that you can protect your holiday investment. Two policies are offered with Travel Guard International. Click here for more information.
