The Mountain

Steamboat is actually a complete mountain range: Mount Werner, Sunshine Peak, Storm Peak, Thunderhead Peak, Pioneer Ridge® and Christie Peak. 2,965 acres (1200 hectares) of permitted terrain offer a diversity of trails for all levels of ability. Mavericks Super pipe is a freerider's dream. Mavericks is 500 feet long, 56-feet wide, has 18 foot walls, and a 22 foot radius. Steamboat's SoBe terrain park adjacent to Mavericks, features an outdoor sound system, a variety of rails; kinked, sliders, rainbows, "S", mailboxes, double barrel, and Mini-Mav, a miniature version of the superpipe with five-foot walls, perfect for novice riders. Gladed areas of Pioneer Ridge, Sunshine and Storm Peak are Steamboat's particular claim to fame, with Champagne Powder® snow in the trees for the most avid powder hounds.

Lodging Information


We will be staying at The Lodge in Steamboat Springs. The Lodge at Steamboat offers moderate 3-bedroom condominiums at the base of Mt. Werner only 200 yards from the Gondola, shops and restaurants. Units feature fully-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, color cable TVs, private balconies and bathrooms adjoining each bedroom. Property amenities include a private shuttle, outdoor hot tubs and heated pool, and complimentary on-site ski valet service and storage.

*Note on Maximum Occupancy – All lodging on this trip is maximum occupancy. This means that everywhere there is a pillow, there is a person.

For example: Condos can consist of queen beds, twin beds or sleeper sofas. If there is a queen bed or sleeper sofa in your condo you will be sharing a bed with someone else. So, this means that you should bring a friend or plan to make a new one on the trip!! You may opt to purchase the space beside you for $350.00 per space.
