Steamboat claims #1 for family ski resort by Ski MagazinePosted by Kim Filler
The annual SKI Magazine readership surveys are in and once again Steamboat claims top honors as the # 1 Family Resort in North America. The Magazine states “Steamboat treats kids like VIPs, which makes parents feel like VIPs.”
“It’s a real town, not just a resort built for ski tourists,” says one reader. “My sons learned to ski at Steamboat, and we still ski there together 21 years later,” says another.
The report also goes on to note that Steamboat claimed top 10 scores in Lodging (#9) and Dining (#10) would indicate that they’re getting it right. One thing that doesn’t need improvement is Steamboat’s snow (#8) and its authentic Western ambience.
What’s New : Expanded Kids Vacation Center; additional snowmaking; new Ski School Ticket office; new gear rental fleet
Don’t Miss : Watch ski-jumping future Olympians on Howelsen Hill, in downtown Steamboat.
Mandatory Run : The trees between Hurricane and Twister—locally referred to as Twistercane: well-spaced and plenty of snow to plunder days after a storm.
