Steamboat Springs, Colorado: Historical Ski Town in Rocky Mountains
Tucked away in the Rocky Mountains of northwestern Colorado, Steamboat Springs was named after its roiling mineral springs, which sounded to some early pioneers like a chugging steamboat. It's known as the birthplace of recreational skiing in Colorado, thanks to a ski jump built in 1914 by cross-country champion Carl Howelsen. Today the town draws skiers for the world-class slopes topped with light, dry snow at Steamboat Resort.
When it gets warmer, there are several miles of trails and wildflower fields for hiking, mountain-view courses for golfing, and high-country lakes and streams for fishing. One network of rivers even flows through the downtown area, with launch points for tubing along the way. The area also retains its history as a ranching center—spur-clad cowboys still stroll the main streets, which are lined with western-art galleries.
