No matter your age there’s something for you at Steamboat Colorado. From horse riding through powder fields with cowboys to halfpipes and cat skiing.
Big Kid cat skiing
Did someone say cat skiing? We sure did. The crew at Steamboat Powder Cats call Buffalo Pass their home terrain. Which is good news for you as the pass is known as Colorado’s deepest annual snowpack. Professional guides will take you and 10 of your new best friends of similar ability level in a cat to mountain peaks, let you out and then guide you down through some of the bestsellers powder going. You’ll be grinning, for sure. Add hot lunch in a backcountry hut and a dedicated photographer to capture your best powder grins and our work here is done.
Little Kid cowboys
What kid doesn’t want to channel their inner cowboy? Throw junior onto the back of his or her own stallion and wander into the powder woods. Del’s Triangle 3 Ranch is true western style ranch close to Steamboat with winter guided trail rides perfect for the family. You don’t need to be an equestrian to partake either, the trail is easy and the horses are gentle plus you’ll have real life cowboys on hand to help you.
Big Kid pipes
If you’ve got the guts then Maverick’s Superpipe has the glory. Picture a 450 foot long, 56 foot wide halfpipe with 18 foot walls and a 22 foot transition. If you don’t know that that means you may not want to be riding it. If you do, then throw yourself down the pipe built for Olympic style super stars. Be warned, you’re being watched by those in the adjacent terrain park who are hitting up the rails.
Little Kid terrain
While Big Kid is taking on the Superpipe, Little Kid has a mini superpipe of his or her own at Maverick’s Terrain park. The pipe has 8 foot walls and is perfect for first timers or take junior to Lil’ Rodeo, the entry level terrain park with a mini half pipe, boxes and entry level jumps.
Big Kid first on the mountain
Set your alarm and bounce out of bed knowing you’ll be first on the mountain, guaranteed. The First Tracks experience on Steamboat gives you exclusive access to terrain from the Sundown Express, Sunshine and South Peak Lifts plus Priest Creek. Numbers are limited and only available for intermediate and above skiers and snowboarders. So what are you waiting for? Grab your seat in the gondola at 8.00am and head sky high.
