Erik Skinner

Every season in Steamboat Springs offers different experiences. We’re glad you decided to visit us this winter, and hope you enjoy our legendary Champagne Powder® and great Rocky Mountain hospitality. You’ll notice plenty of restaurants and shops around town, and a newly remodeled base area. Please stop by the Visitors Center at 125 Anglers Dr., and let our knowledgeable staff answer your questions and help you plan a Steamboat vacation packed with fun and adventurous activities. While you’re here, explore the mountain, historic Old Town and the wide-open spaces that offer countless outdoor experiences all around our community. Steamboat offers so many winter activities, from cross country skiing and snowshoeing to soaking in our world famous hot springs. Once you get a taste of our local character and the itch to see what everything will look like without snow, you’ll see why so many of us came for the winter, then stayed for the summer. Tom Kern Executive Vice President Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association

Welcomes you to Steamboat Springs!

Erik Skinner grew up near Pittsburg, Penn., skiing down his family’s driveway and building jumps on neighboring hills. What a difference a mountain makes: Now he’s the freestyle ski program director for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, winner of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association’s Freestyle Program of the Year. He has become a real Steamboat local since his early days back East, raising a Yampa Valley family and honing his deep ties to the community’s Olympic skiing traditions. Skinner found his way to Steamboat as a teenager when Jim Spillane, then headmaster of the Lowell Whiteman School, invited him to train with the Winter Sports Club’s freestyle team. “I thought I was dreaming. Two weeks later I was here,” Skinner says. “Skiing is why I came. But I stayed after my first summer here. I think I hiked a different trail every week and never did the same one twice!” He attended the Lowell Whiteman School for his junior

and senior years of high school. That’s where he also met his wife, Heather. “She was an Alpiner and I was a freedogger. Who knew the two could mix?” he says, marveling at their 11 years together and their two sons, Quinn, 4, and Brodie, 7. “They keep us young, tired and on our toes.” When Skinner’s own freestyle competition career ultimately gave way to coaching, he started in Steamboat with the fledglings. Over nearly two decades, he has kept moving along with all those young Steamboat skiers through their careers: “I still stay in touch with most of them today. I like to think I taught them something along the way, but I may have learned more from them.” Steamboat Springs Visitors’ Guide: What do you love most about Steamboat? Erik Skinner: Family. The whole town is a huge family. Whether it’s your personal family, friends, co-workers or someone you

just met, everyone takes care of each other and stands behind what they believe. It’s the people that make Steamboat so special. VG: What makes a perfect winter Steamboat day for you? E.S.: A mix of skiing some morning powder with the kids and coaching for a bit – then heading to the river to flip a fly and watch the sun set while duck hunting. VG: Where can we find you when you’re not skiing? E.S.: Not skiing? Well, being a ski coach, I’m probably standing, shoveling or in the office still in ski boots. In the fall, I’m in the woods hunting. In the summer, I’m tying and untying my sons’ fishing knots. VG: You travel a lot. What makes Steamboat different from other ski towns? E.S.: The sense of community. It’s a real town, not just a highway stop. Most of the places we


travel feel tense – always waiting in lines, on and off the mountain. Not here! There’s a lot on the “to do” list here. In fact, if you run out of something to do, you should have your heart checked! VG: What are your favorite local amenities? E.S.: Howelsen Hill, since I pretty much live there. Walking into that lodge to register for the Winter Sports Club is the first thing I remember about Steamboat. The water ramps (where the freestylers practice in the summer, on Bald Eagle Lake) – it is just such a cool facility, and if I was a kid….wait, maybe I still am? The rodeo. And Rabbit Ears, because you can’t beat the views up there. VG: What makes a perfect summer Steamboat day for you? E.S.: When it’s my turn to sleep in and wake up to the smell of my wife’s blueberry buckle for breakfast. Then taking the family brookie fishing on the pass and having sandwiches for lunch while we laugh about the kinks of life. VG: Do you snowboard? Nordic ski? Telemark? E.S.: I tele when I can, usually with my own kids. I grew up Nordic skiing and even have a set in the basement, but have not found the time to use it yet. This is the year. VG: Got any advice for gearing up and getting physically prepared for embarking on a new winter sport? E.S.: Core, cardio, core and more core. Being out of shape when learning a new sport is hell. VG: What’s your best advice for someone who wants to start learning jumps and bumps? E.S.: Keep your eyes up and stand in the front of the boots. When all else fails, try to land “fuzzy side” up. VG: What’s your favorite run on a powder day? E.S.: It’s kind of like my meals, the one in front of me – face shots! Also White Out, because it’s a great run to get the legs pumping and warm you up. VG: How about a favorite run on those warm bluebird spring days? E.S.: Voodoo, right after the kids slip it and it’s nice and smooooooth. VG: Any inside scoop about winter fun in Steamboat that you want to share? E.S.: Life is short. Do it all! STE A M B O A T SP R INGS VISITO R S’ GU ID E | Wi nte r 2 0 1 1 / 1 2 | VG 3

On the Cover Photographer Ned Cremin captured rider Alicia Prideon off-piste on the Steamboat Ski Area: “It was a February morning, cold and still, on one of the few true bluebird days we had last winter. Over a fresh foot had fallen and the way the snow rested on the aspens made them appear like earth-borne chandeliers reaching into blue,” he says. “We rode laps through this tree patch all morning, without another soul to be seen.” ACTIVITIES | LODGING | OUTDOORS | DINING | WEDDINGS & REUNIONS | SHOPPING | SERVICES | REALTORS

Rotating exhibits of Western art are housed in the historic First National Bank building, downtown Steamboat. Open Tuesday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 807 Lincoln Ave. | 970-870-1755 | www.steamboatartmuseum.com

Tread of Pioneers Museum

Housed in a 1908 Queen Anne-style Victorian home with turn-of-the-century furnishings, exhibits range from local ranching to mining, Native American history and pioneer life – plus a comprehensive ski history exhibit that includes a Snurfer, the first incarnation of a snowboard invented by part-time Steamboat resident Sherm Poppen. Open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Corner of Eighth and Oak streets | 970-879-2214 | www.treadofpioneers.org

Yampa River Core Trail

Seven scenic miles of multi-use paved trails wind through downtown and along the Yampa River for walking, running and access to fishing holes. During Steamboat’s notorious three-wire winters, when the snow depth is known to exceed all three levels of barbed wire surrounding local ranches, the city’s little blue tractors keep the trail clear of snow. Dotted with sculptures and natural springs along the way, the year-round trail accesses Howelsen Hill, prime fishing holes, the rodeo grounds, the Depot, quiet residential neighborhoods and tranquil natural areas. 970-879-4300

Fish Creek Falls

Four miles east of downtown Steamboat Springs, a 283-foot waterfall pours out of the Mount Zirkel Wilderness. This is an ideal spot for a short, handicap-accessible hike to the base of the falls; it is also a jumping-off point for miles of unpaved day hikes. From Lincoln Avenue, turn north on Third Street, then right on Fish Creek Falls Road. Follow it to the end. Daily parking fee: $5

● Listed on Routt County Register of Historic Properties ● Listed on the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties ● Listed on the National Register of Historic Places 1 | Tread of Pioneers Museum | 800 Oak St. Constructed by Ernest Campbell in 1908, this was home to the Zimmerman family from 1913 to 1956. In 1959, the Tread of Pioneers Museum opened in this building. The Queen Anne-style house was once located at Fifth and Oak streets, and was moved to this location in 1988. The adjoining Utterback House ● was moved to the site in 1997 from its original location at Fourth and Oak. The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

Sept. 9, 1922. Designed by noted Colorado architect Robert Fuller, the three-story building was completed in December 1923 at a cost of $122,000. 6 | The Old Town Pub | 600 Lincoln Ave. Built in 1904 by Ernest Campbell, this structure was originally the Albany Hotel. From 1914-1921, the building was a hospital run by Dr. F.E. Willett. After the hospital relocated, the second floor became the popular Odd Fellows dance hall. The first floor served as a grocery, post office, electric store and public library from 1924 to 1967.

2 | Giamboni House | 646 Oak St. Camillo Giamboni built this structure in 1889. Hidden under the siding is the original log building. This was home to Swiss brothers Henry and Camillo Giamboni, who were the first to make skis commercially in Steamboat.

7 | Pioneer Building | 700 block of Lincoln Ave. ●● The Pioneer Building was in continuous use as a hotel from 1923 until 1979. In its heyday, the upstairs rooms were run as a classic Western boarding house and the downstairs housed the colorful Pioneer Bar.

3 | Christian Science Church | Seventh & Oak ●● Margaret Crawford, Steamboat’s pioneer mother, was a charter member of the town’s Christian Science Society, organized in July 1908. The log building, which continues to house the Christian Science Church, was completed in November 1934.

8 | First National Bank/Rehder Building | Eighth & Lincoln (Steamboat Art Museum) ●● The First National Bank of Steamboat Springs, chartered in 1902, occupied a small frame structure on this site until the present building was constructed in 1905. Dakota sandstone from Emerald Mountain and handmade bricks from Trogler’s local brickyard were used in the construction.

4 | Willett House | 443 Oak St. Doc Willett came to Steamboat from Laramie, Wyo., in 1912 and took ownership of this house following World War I. The well-known doctor made house calls in a bearskin coat.

Indian chief who came to Steamboat after making a fortune mining lead, zinc and silver in Oklahoma. The Chief was Steamboat’s first theater equipped for “talkies.” 10. Howelsen Hill | Seen from Ninth and Lincoln ●● Rising up steeply from the south side of the Yampa River, this section of Emerald Mountain is named for Norwegian ski jumper Carl Howelsen, the “Flying Norseman” of Barnum and Bailey’s Circus. Carl arrived in Steamboat in 1913 and introduced the townspeople to ski jumping and recreational skiing. By the 1930s, Howelsen Hill facilities included slalom and downhill courses and a “boat tow” consisting of two sleds pulled up the mountain by a cable powered by a Model T engine and transmission. In 1947, a combination chair/T-bar lift to the top of Emerald Mountain was installed and was one of the longest lifts in the U.S. at that time. A 90-meter jump was installed by 1950. Howelsen Hill is the only ski area in Colorado listed on the Colorado State Register of Historic Places. 11 | Harwig’s Saddlery | 911 Lincoln Ave. (Harwig’s & L’Apogée) Built in the 1890s, this was originally a drug store, then a meat market. In 1916 it became Harwig’s Saddlery and Western Wear, which was run by the Harwig family until 1984. The historic cowboy sign over the storefront was painted in the 1950s or 1960s by noted Western artist Merrill Mahaffey. 12 | The Old Pilot Building | 1009 Lincoln Ave. James Hoyle began Northwest Colorado’s first newspaper, The Steamboat Pilot, on July 31, 1885. This brick and stone building was constructed in fall 1909 for the newspaper printing office, which occupied the building until 1999. 13 | Steamboat Laundry Building | 11th and Oak (Giovanni’s & Creekside Café) ●● Built over a 10-year period starting in 1910, this two-story brick and river rock structure was constructed for the Steamboat Laundry, Dry Cleaning and Pressing business. 14 | Carver Power Plant ● | Tenth Street between Lincoln and Oak (Centennial Hall) In 1900, a coal-powered plant was devised to make Steamboat Springs the first town in Northwest Colorado to provide its residents with electricity. The steam, a by-product of the system used to create electricity, was used to heat nearby schools and residences. This building was rehabilitated to house city hall. 15 | Lorenz Building | 928 Lincoln Ave. This building was completed in 1893 and was originally a general store. In 1912, it became the courthouse when the county seat relocated from Hahn’s Peak. After 1921, the courtroom occupied the second floor, while the clerk, treasurer and jail shared the ground floor. When the present-day courthouse was completed in 1923, the building became the site of a dance hall called the Social Benefit Association or SBA. 16 | Hugus Building/Thiesen Mall | 912 Lincoln Ave. (Steamboat Smokehouse) Built in 1890, this was the site of J.W. Hugus & Co., one of the nation’s first general store chains. It sold farm equipment, furniture, stoves, feed and gasoline in barrels, among other items, in a facility equipped with electric lights, cash carriers and other labor-saving devices. The store housed Steamboat’s first telephone.

17 | Maxwell/Squire Building ●● | 840 Lincoln Ave. (Lyon Drug Store) Once known as the Maxwell Building, this structure was built by J.D. Maxwell of local pressed brick from Trogler’s brickyard, stone trim and plate glass. A post office occupied a room on the ground floor from 1909 to 1962. In 1920, Chamberlain-Grey Drug Store was the first drug store to occupy this site. 18 | F.M. Light & Sons | 830 Lincoln Ave. The F.M. Light family moved from Hicksville, Ohio, to Steamboat in 1905. Soon after their arrival, they purchased the lot, erected the building and secured enough merchandise to open this clothing store. Light family members traveled throughout Northwest Colorado and southern Wyoming, displaying their merchandise and taking orders from ranchers for Western wear, hats, boots, saddles and equipment. The retail store is still owned by family members. 19 | The Furlong Building | 810 Lincoln Ave. (Bushwacker’s) This building was erected in the 1920s using stone from the Emerald Mountain quarry to frame the windows. Norwegian ski jumper Carl Howelsen completed the brickwork and masonry. 20 | The Routt County National Bank Building ●● 802 Lincoln Ave. (Wild Horse Gallery) Built in 1918 with stonework by Carl Howelsen, this building is a unique landmark of two different periods. The Lincoln Avenue façade shows the rehabilitated 1918 exterior, and the Eighth Street side displays the changes from the 1940s.

Extended Tour A. and B. Crawford Houses ●● 1238 and 1184 Crawford Ave. The second and third houses built by the Crawfords are still standing. The second home, at 1238 Crawford Ave. (on 12th Street), was built in 1886 from native lumber from the Suttle Mill. The bay window was added later to accommodate their daughter’s wedding reception. The large stone house at 1184 Crawford Ave.●● was built in 1894 of stone from the Emerald Mountain quarry. The family occupied this house until Mrs. Crawford’s death in 1939, and have recently moved in again. C. Cabin Hotel/ Bud Werner Memorial Library 1289 Lincoln Ave. The Cabin Hotel was built on this site in 1909 to serve passengers coming to Steamboat by train. It was one of the most luxurious hotels in the country and the largest in Northwest Colorado. In 1939, it burned to the ground in less than one hour, claiming two lives. D. The Depot ●● 1001 13th St. Designed by famous Denver architect Frank E. Edbrooke, the Depot was completed in 1909, shortly after the Moffat Line reached Steamboat in December 1908. During the early 1910s, Steamboat was the largest cattle-shipping center in the country. The train provided passenger service until 1968. The Depot now houses the Steamboat Springs Arts Council and the Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts.

Winter Traditions

At the Winter Carnival Night Show, skiers and riders make their way down the mountain, lit only by the fiery torches in their hands.

Join Steamboat Springs’ ritual snowflake fun. Fireworks & Torchlight Parades

Steamboat loves fireworks. Our pyrotechnic passion is exemplified by extravaganzas over Howelsen Hill during Winter Carnival (Saturday, Feb. 11) and blasts that light up the Steamboat Ski Area on New Year’s Eve (Saturday, Dec.31), Valentine’s Day (Tuesday, Feb. 14) and St. Patrick’s Day (Saturday, March 17). Adding to the illumination, a trail of skiers and riders schuss and slide down the nighttime slopes, their path lit only by torches. 970-879-6111 | www.steamboat.com

Cowboy Downhill

Pro-rodeo cowboys are adept at roping a calf or hitting eight seconds on a bull. But can they chase a gate? On skis? The 38th annual Cowboy Downhill tests winter wrangling skills as pro-rodeo cowboys from all over the country convene in Steamboat. More than 100

cowboys, clad in typical chaps and hats, slide, wobble and sometimes tumble down a slalom course and over a jump, then ski en masse to a finish line at the base of the Steamboat Ski Area. The Cowboy Downhill is an entertaining reminder that Steamboat was a cowboy town long before it was Ski Town USA. Tues, Jan. 17 | Steamboat Ski Area 970-879-6111 | www.steamboat.com

Go ice fishing with the locals at Stagecoach Reservoir (a state park 16 miles south of Steamboat) or snowmobile in with an expert guide to fly fish below the dam – Stagecoach’s tailwaters flow at a constant 54 degrees and deliver a rich food supply to hungry trout.

From mellow to rip-roaring, Steamboat has it all and you can find it within seconds of the gondola, on downtown’s main street, and in between town and the mountain.

Mellow

Lounge in front of the fireplace, sip a cocktail and indulge your inner child by ordering a deep fried PB&J at the Saddles Bar inside the Sheraton Steamboat Resort. Or visit the newly remodeled Cabin Bar, inside the Steamboat Grand Resort. Enjoy their great happy hour featuring half-price drinks and a laid-back feel. Located in a new luxe property at the base of Mount Werner, the Truffle Pig is a must. The outdoor fireplace, appetizers at various price points and delicious drinks with unexpected twists (try the watermelon margarita) make for a high-end experience. Head downtown, where you’ll find Bella’s, a wine bar with a refined experience and a European flair — and the perfect spot to relax with a glass from the ever-changing list of Old World wines. On Yampa Street, the Cottonwood Grill has a beautiful curved cherry wood bar that welcomes you to sit and enjoy Pacific Rim cuisine like tuna poke and pot stickers with a specialty cocktail.

Casual and fun Slopeside Grill has always been a favorite with its ski-in, ski-out location. This is the place to catch a game and enjoy pizzas named for iconic ski runs along with refreshing cold beer or hot, spiked cocoa. Come spring, look for the ice bar, Steamboat‘s unofficial “beach,” where you can earn that envious sunglasses tan in nonsummer months. Just north of the Mount Werner exit is Amanté. A coffee shop by day, it becomes The Buzz Bar in the late afternoon and evening hours. With a mix of seating areas and a full bar, this isn’t your typical coffee shop. DJs spin here and the bartender has earned a local following with his tiramisu martini. Downtown at Carl’s Tavern, you’ll find a downto-earth place where ranchers rub elbows with city officials and visitors become locals. With made-from-scratch comfort food, great Colorado beers on tap and Colorado Mules served in copper mugs, you might not want to leave. On the corner of 8th & Yampa Street is Cugino’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant. Unwind at the bar with a Birra Moretti draft or try one of the bartender’s delicious concoctions. Happy hour is from 2pm-6pm or from 9pm-close . Make a mess. Stay a while. At the Steamboat Smokehouse you can toss peanut shells on the floor while grubbing on delicious BBQ and enjoying an ice cold schooner of beer. Numerous big-screen TVs make this the perfect hide-away for watching sports.

Rip-Roaring

What used to be the old ski patrollers’ trailer is now the T-Bar, where PBR can be found in abundance and locals hang out to recap tall tales from a day of riding or skiing. Personalized beer mugs line the wall, along with X-rays of on-mountain injuries, lending to the character of this place. Keg parties and beer discounts coupled with a short but fresh menu round out the experience. The Tugboat Grill & Pub offers a classic Steamboat experience with live music and a grand dance floor. Pool and foosball tables and darts offer something to do for those with two left feet. The Ghost Ranch Saloon consistently brings bands with strong followings to town, so if you’re looking to dance and hear live music, this is your stop. A beautiful 1893 restored Brunswick Bar lends to its Western character as do the saddles you can use in lieu of seats. The upstairs is great for peoplewatching, and your footwork will make the lava floor come to life. Don’t miss the Old Town Pub, a locals’ and visitors’ favorite. The drinks are stiff, the prices are spot on, and most nights you can hear live music at this popular venue. For a complete rundown of bars and restaurants with a wide range of happy hour and nightlife offerings, see the Dining listings starting on VG55.


Welcome to the end of taking your last chair at 1:30 pm. Bob Shay was at the top of a run on a bluebird ski day and he was miserable. Funny how ill-fitting ski boots can ruin the most perfect of days.That’s when Bob had an epiphany:

ski boots made for everyone don’t fit anyone.

That evening, and countless evenings after, Bob and his brother Russ could be found in their garage—deconstructing ski boots to find a more comfortable fit. After dozens of prototypes, Surefoot custom ski boots were created.

Since then, Surefoot has made tens of thousands of skiers better, and more comfortable. That’s what happens when 1,076 air pegs embrace your foot on our digital scanner to create the ultimate topographical map of your unique foot. Our technicians guarantee a custom fit in just 70 minutes. And you ski better for the rest of your life.

It’s time you learned for yourself. You’ll find Surefoot stores conveniently located at all the great places you love to ski.

Nightlife: Family Style

Hot picks for a night on the town with the under-age crew Western BBQ

Feed your inner cowboy: Barbecue buffet. Big cowboy hats. Live music. Dancing. Maybe even the Hokey Pokey. It’s a big night at the top of the gondola, and it’s a traditional favorite that lures families back year after year for its allinclusive home-style food and lively Western entertainment. 970-879-6111 | www.steamboat.com

Sweet Stops

istockphoto.com

Tempting your sweet-tooth! Have an old-fashioned soda fountain treat at Lyon’s Corner Drug and Soda Fountain. Idulge in a scoop of Italy’s decadent frozen specialty at Ciao Gelato. Devour a monster sundae at Johnny B. Good’s diner. Or venture down the street to Mahogany Ridge Brewery and Grill, where there are microbrews for mom and dad and homemade root beer for the kids.

Belly Up for Hot Chocolate

Dark chocolate or milk chocolate…out of a ceramic mug or a paper to-go cup… it’s a wintertime staple – and one of the yummiest warm treats in town. Try the Steaming Bean’s wintertime winner – a peppermint hot chocolate topped with homemade whipped cream and colorful sprinkles. The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory takes its hot cocoa seriously with three different varieties, including Rocky Mountain Chocolate cocoa, Belgian white chocolate and raspberry truffle.

For being named after a man who could fly, we’re pretty down-to-earth. Carl’s Tavern is Steamboat’s newest locals’ favorite. Carl Howelsen turned Steamboat into a playground, skis into wings, and mustaches into art. His adventurous spirit is our inspiration. And Carl’s Tavern is a place for adventurous spirits to call home. The hospitality is genuine, the beer is cold, and the food is made from scratch. It’s comforting. It’s authentic.

Lodging

Most of the lodging facilities available through Steamboat Central Reservations have been assigned quality ratings by an independent rating service. Properties are ďŹ rst placed in price categories of Premium ($$$$), Expensive ($$$), Moderate ($$) or Economy ($) based on regular season rates. A random sample of units/rooms from each property is then inspected and assigned a quality rating designation of Excellent (EX), Very Good (VG), Good (G) or Fair (F). Properties that are not part of Steamboat Central Reservations are not rated. The rating designation assigned represents the overall quality of the furnishings, materials and maintenance. Properties are compared to one another within the same price categories. Standards of quality are Steamboat-based, although national standards are taken into consideration in order to form a baseline. Conditions of the property may have changed since the time of inspection.

Outdoor Guide Cross Country Ski & Snowshoe Routes ■ 1A West Summit Loop A

3.7 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak, Blacktail Mountain quads Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 13 miles to the West Summit parking area on Rabbit Ears Pass. Route description: Begin on the north side of the road. Skiing the route in a clockwise direction is less difficult, with gentler climbs and steeper descents through open and wooded areas. Views of the Yampa Valley and the Flat Tops are spectacular. The West Summit loops and surrounding terrain are the most popular skiing areas on the Hahn’s Peak/Bears Ears Ranger District.

◆◆ 1B West Summit Loop B

4 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak Access: This route is reached by skiing counter-clockwise on 1A. Ski past the first junction with 1B and climb to the top of the ridge. At the second junction, on the ridgetop, ski 1B to the east. This route is best skied in a clockwise direction. Route description: This route has several steep ascents and descents through heavy timber and open parks.

◆◆ 1C South Summit Loop

3 miles

USGS map: Walton Peak Access: This route begins at the West Summit parking area. Park on the south side of the highway. Route description: Travel counter-clockwise for the best downhill runs. The route begins by following an old road. Woods, open meadows and some steep descents are encountered. This route connects with route 3B midway around the loop. Past this junction, the route follows the telephone lines and old highway, paralleling U.S. 40. The final portion follows the meadow edge back to the West Summit, then retraces the first segment of old road.

■ 1D Bruce’s Trail

3.1 miles

USGS map: Mount Werner Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 14 miles to the parking area on the north side of the highway. A short spur connects the parking lot to the main trail. Route description: Designed wide to accommodate both skating and traditional skiing techniques. The trail is machine-groomed in the early ski season. The upper loop provides easy skiing, while the lower loop has a moderate difficulty rating. The tight loop design and proximity to the highway make this trail a good choice for a ski workout, a short day, or for skiers wishing to remain relatively close to their vehicles.

◆◆ 2A Hogan Park Route

7 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 18 miles to the Walton Peak parking area. One way, to base of Morningside Lift. Route description: This route is recommended for experts only. If you plan to descend Mount Werner through the Steamboat Ski Area, safety straps are required. Begin on the north side of the highway just west of the large cut bank. The route crosses large open parks and many streams. Steep ascents and descents will be encountered. During heavy snowfall or whiteout conditions, the route is very difficult to follow across the large parks. Carry emergency/survival gear. If lift is not operating, climb 1 mile to top of lift, then descend 3 miles to ski area base.

■ 2B Fox Curve Loop

3 miles

USGS map: Mount Werner Access: Travel approximately 17 miles east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 to the Fox Curve parking area. Parking on north side of highway. Route description: This route has varied terrain including steep ascents and descents. Use caution when crossing Walton Creek.

◆ 3A Walton Creek Loop

1.6 miles

USGS map: Mount Werner Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 18 miles to the Walton Creek parking area on Rabbit Ears Pass. The parking area is on the south side of the highway. Route description: Begin at the knoll south of the parking lot and follow the powerline a short distance to the west. Turn south across Walton Creek and through Walton Creek Campground. The junction of route 3B is reached in the meadow south of the campground. Past this junction, the route makes a steep ascent over a ridge and down an open slope to Walton Creek and the junction of route 3C. Follow Walton Creek back to the parking area.

◆◆ 3B Par-A-Llel Route

2 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak Access: This route can be accessed from route 1C, beginning at the West Summit parking area on the south side of the highway, or from route 3A, beginning at the Walton Creek parking area. Route description: This route connects routes 1C and 3A. Skiing it west to east provides more exciting downhill runs; skiing east to west involves more climbing, though much of it is gentle. Starting at the junction of 1C and 3B (west end), the route goes up a gentle slope and drops into a stream valley. Use caution when crossing streams and beaver ponds on this route as they may be only partially frozen. Heavy timber and open meadows.

■ 3C North Walton Peak Route

3 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 18 miles to the Walton Creek parking area.

Approximately 1/2 mile from the parking area is the junction of 3A and 3C. The route crosses Walton Creek and travels through wooded areas and open meadows. It connects to Forest Road 302 and follows it to the top of North Walton Peak. Opportunities for steep runs exist on the slopes of this peak. Level of Difficulty Key:

Being Prepared The one common denominator of all backcountry enthusiasts is an emphasis on safety. Routt County Search and Rescue offers the following tips: • Never go alone. • Tell your friends your destination and expected time of return. Leave a note in your car at the trailhead with this information, especially if you change your plans. • Take a map and compass and know how to use them. • Know your physical condition. • Check with your doctor to see if changes in medication are recommended for high altitude or strenuous exercise. Make sure your partners are aware of any medical conditions. • Listen to local weather reports and prepare for extreme conditions. • Dress in layers and take adequate clothing. Also bring a space blanket. • Bring more water than you think you will need and plenty of food. • Take emergency rations. Carry a tin cup and a small stove or matches and fire-starting gear. Know how to use the fire-starting equipment. • Be aware of your surroundings and the weather. Regularly look backward and around you. Note landmarks and compass bearings. Keep in mind your return route. • If you get confused, STOP! Stay put and stay warm. • Adjustable poles, climbing skins, shovel and avalanche transceiver are the core components of any backcountry skier’s gear list. Practice with them and develop a rescue plan. • Buy a hiking certificate or hunting license at any sporting goods store. By doing so, you are vested in the Colorado Search and Rescue fund, which will cover the costs associated with rescue efforts, should you become lost or injured. Registering a snowmobile at any Colorado State Park office has the same effect.

Come Back Soon

Steamboat in the summertime is irresistible. It’s the season when Ski Town USA® transforms into Bike Town USA®, and just one of the reasons locals say, “I came here for winter; I stayed for summer.” Here are a dozen ideas to lure you back..

1 | Swim in an alpine lake or tube the Yampa River. 2 | Hike three local wilderness areas for days on end. 3 | Bike single-track trails that lie underneath all that snow. 4 | Revel in dozens of festivals – from music, fireworks, opera and art to the Saturday Farmers’ Market. 5 | Float high above the valley during Balloon Rodeo weekend. 6 | Ride the gondola to hike, picnic and bike. 7 | Soak in hot springs surrounded by wildflowers. 8 | Catch big trout from pristine mountain lakes and streams. 9 | Cruise the Yampa River Core Trail. 10 | Play cowboy at the rodeo.

12 | Witness fall’s golden aspens… before winter arrives again.

Jack Klobetanz

11 | Meet the birds, botanic gardens and wildlife that left during winter.

Take a break in a field of wildflowers in the Flat Tops Wilderness.
