The end of ski season in Steamboat brings mixed feelings for many: excitement for the coming summer season, a bit of sadness over no more powder days (until next year!), and a sort of emptiness as many locals disperse for spring vacations.

Then there are those few individuals who simply “didn’t get enough.”  They were there everyday when the lifts were running, but when the mountains “closes,” that doesn’t stop them; they dig out their randoneé gear and get to climbing!  Skin up the mountain, ski down…for as long as the snow lasts!  Frankly, not only does this mean that these tough individuals get a longer ski season, but they also get in killer shape for the coming summer sports.

And there are a lot of summer sports in Steamboat. More than we can list, really:  Mountain Biking. Road Biking. Hiking. Trail Running. Road Running. Kayaking. Boating.  Canoeing.  Fishing.  Flyfishing. ATVing. Horseback Riding…Pretty much, just about anything you could want.  Steamboat is truly a mecca for outdoor activity, no matter the season.

So sure, it may be the end of another incredible Steamboat ski season, but it is only the beginning of another.  The experienced Steamboatians know that Steamboat is much more than a Ski Town; it’s a place to be year-round!
