We are located adjacent to the R-O-W run, above the Christie Club. We chose the location as we desired true-ski-in/out yet also the ability to walk to Ski Time Square for apres-ski (OK, I admit I also walk to Daz Bog for my morning coffee, not to worry we have a coffee maker in the unit, I just like to support the local economy).
While Steamboat is known as one of the finest ski resorts in the country, as PT locals we know there is so much more to the area beyond our ski hill. Apres ski at the base area is a blast. We purchased the condo so we could walk to the base area at the end of the day. We love The Tugboat for casual fare (kids love the game room), Café Diva for a special dinner and Paramount for cocktails.
During the winter months we love the on-mountain dinner options. Since the mountain closes in the afternoon, best to walk to the gondola from our unit, it is about a 5 minute walk)
We use the Ski Time Square bus stop for access to downtown via free bus.
The town of Steamboat Springs is an actual working town and county seat about 2-3 miles away from the base area. Lincoln Avenue, the main street offers visitors a quaint view of the Rocky Mountain West intermixed with locally owned shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and a striking example of art-deco design of our county building.
FM Light & Sons is a must visit for authentic western wear at local prices. Howelson Hill is great for tubbing. Heading into downtown, the natural hot springs are open to the public offering day admission passes/
Strawberry Park is our most well-known hot springs, about 8 miles from our condo. Due to the roads, in winter we strongly suggest taking one of the shuttle services. During the daylight hours it is a festive family atmosphere. After dark the springs are clothing optional. However not to worry, between the darkness and steam rising from the springs, even the most reserved will be comfortable.
Be sure to take some time and explore the Town of Steamboat. It is charming and authentic which is rare in most resorts. Locals are friendly, most establishments are family-oriented and overall safe and inviting. We guarantee your first visit will not be your last.
