welcome

Larry Pierce

We’re so glad you’re choosing to spend time in our special valley, where smalltown friendliness combines with worldclass amenities. Where the options for fun and fantastic vistas never seem to end. Where there’s a real town with heart and soul, ranching and Olympic heritage. Where you can kick off your boots and truly feel at home.

Cathy Wiedemer

It’s all here, and this comprehensive Visitors’ Guide will come in handy. If you have any questions, our Visitor Center staff at 1255 S. Lincoln Ave. is more than happy to help you plan your activities. Enjoy your stay, but beware of the Yampa Valley Curse! Once you’re smitten, you will want to return again and again. We hope you do! Sandy Evans Hall Executive Vice President Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association

Welcomes you to Steamboat Springs!

Cathy Wiedemer cruises through fresh powder at the Steamboat Ski Area. With a mile-wide smile and some of the sweetest powder skiing (and mountain biking) skills around, it’s no wonder that Cathy “Weeds” Wiedemer has found herself photographed as the face of Steamboat Springs so often over the years. Since she became a full-time local in 1986, she has been a ski instructor, a waitress, an EMT, a PR manager and an entrepreneur – but her stint as a mountain host at the ski area was her favorite gig yet. Since Wiedemer’s epic turns captured in the snow and the sun have lured more than a few skiers and riders to Steamboat over the years, she has also got some sage advice for snagging your best ski shot: “Be yourself, have fun and enjoy the moment. Make sure to smile and pretend the camera isn’t there.” VG 2 | O NL INE AT WWW. STE A MBOA TC HA MBE R.C OM

Steamboat Springs Visitors’ Guide: What do you love most about Steamboat? Cathy Wiedemer: The endless opportunities to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors, with an honorable mention to our friends and the people in the community.

VG: When did you start skiing? C.W.: My answer is better suited to how I started skiing. As a tiny little sister – I was probably three or four – my brother would carry me to the top of the hills on our property in New York and push me down the hill.

VG: What makes a perfect winter day? C.W.: Waking up to a dumping snowstorm; loading up my ski pack; hopping on the free bus for a day of skiing on the mountain or in the backcountry with my husband, Glenn; coming home and warming up by the fireplace with our dog and two kitties.

VG: Where can we find you when you’re not on the mountain? C.W.: Around our home with our golden retriever, Bella, or on the ice with my Chix with Stix hockey teammates at Howelsen Ice Arena.

VG: What makes a perfect summer day? C.W.: A morning walk by the creek with Bella, mountain biking with Glenn, gardening and dinner on the deck under the stars.

VG: Your favorite Steamboat amenities? C.W.: Mount Werner, Emerald Mountain and the Yampa River – I love the ski trails on Mount Werner, the mountain bike trails on Emerald and the Yampa River Core Trail.


VG: What brought you to Steamboat…and what kept you here? C.W.: I came out one summer to be a camp counselor. Went back East, graduated from college and returned with a group of high school friends. We had always envisioned living the “ski life” – ski all day, work at night. It was everything we imagined and more. One by one, they all left town (they return often for vacations). I stayed, met my husband and here we are. The lifestyle and sense of community has kept me here. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. VG: Do you snowboard? Nordic ski? Telemark? And do you have any advice for gearing up and getting physically prepared for a new sport? C.W.: I’ve snowboarded in the past, just a few times. I Nordic ski occasionally and I’m a tele skier. With tele gear you can ski the mountain and hike for turns in the backcountry very comfortably. Gearing up for a new sport can be overwhelming with all of the product technology these days. Do your homework…then spend time at your favorite ski shop. The staff’s firsthand knowledge and expertise is invaluable. Maintaining fitness season-to-season through cross training, hydrating and proper nutrition will make any venture into a new activity enjoyable. Another great thing about Steamboat is there’s always someone willing to introduce you to a new sport or there’s a clinic to help you get going. VG: Knowing that you’ve skied with lots of them, what’s it like to ski along side an Olympian? C.W.: It’s an honor to ski with an Olympian. I have tremendous respect and admiration for these incredible athletes. Growing up watching ABC’s Wide World of Sports and the Olympic Games, I never thought in a million years that I’d have the opportunity to ski and share chairlift rides with Olympic athletes. It’s definitely a very special part of my life in Steamboat. VG: What’s your favorite run on a powder day and what do you love so much about it? C.W.: Riding up Storm Peak Express on powder days I ask myself, “Where should I go? Where’s the best line going to be?” Inevitably, I end up skiing Sideburn (skier’s left of Storm Peak Face), to Hurricane, and I’m always psyched that I did. The pitch, the trees, little drop-offs, the openness — the whole package makes for a superior powder run. It’s free-flowing and always has fabulous snow.

675 Snapdragon Way Suite 100, Steamboat Springs, CO 80487 Steamboat-Springs.com

VG: And how about a favorite run for those warm bluebird spring days? C.W.: Kuus’s Cruz, to Three O’clock, to Two O’clock, to Daybreak. It’s a great way to soak up the sun and take in the view on the way to Sundown Express. VG: Any inside scoop about winter in Steamboat you want to share? C.W.: Have the Steamboat Ski Report on speed dial. Check the mid-mountain and summit temps so your layers are just right. Get to know which weather patterns bring Steamboat the most snow and plan your ski days accordingly. STE AM B OAT SP R IN GS V ISITOR S’ GUID E | WI N T ER 20 1 0 /1 1 | VG 3

On the Cover Photographer Aryeh Copa caught skier Kerry Lofy casually launching off the Chute One rock with a sweeping view over the Yampa Valley as a backdrop. “Lofy jumps much bigger than this on a regular basis,” Copa says. “But that rock is like a right of passage for a lot of people who are new to Steamboat or growing up here.”

Old Town

Downtown Steamboat is the heart of this historic ranching and skiing community. Howelsen Hill looms over streets lined with historic buildings, century-old businesses and quaint neighborhoods, plus modern shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. www.mainstreetsteamboatsprings.com

Howelsen Hill

Check out the oldest continuously operating ski area in the United States. You’re bound to find future winter Olympians training on the slopes, the 70- and 90-meter ski jumps, and Nordic trails that rise behind downtown Steamboat. Try out their training grounds with a night ski or a skate ski around the track. 970-879-8499

The Depot

Home of the Steamboat Springs Arts Council, this historic 1909 railroad-station-turned-gallery houses a wide variety of changing art exhibits, dance classes, theater and singer-songwriter shows, and free foreign films on the third Friday of each month.

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


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

● 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.

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.

Cat Skiing Insert yourself in the classic picture of a skier floating through waist-deep powder with an unflinching smile. A comfortable snowcat trip on Buffalo Pass is an easier way to access the backcountry – and the snow that earns that shot.

Steamboat Powdercats offers an all-inclusive, daylong backcountry experience, from a shuttle in the morning to a cold beer at the end of the day. They separate groups by ability (intermediate, advanced and expert) to ensure your trip is tailored to your skills. They also provide the fat skis and snowboards, precautionary avalanche beacons, guides, catered lunch, water and snacks during the day – plus a CD of yourself in the aforementioned photos. Children 12 and over are welcome. And the guides are happy to offer powder skiing tips. BONUS! Try a moonlit powder ski.

nightlife

Aryeh Copa

Top off a long day on the slopes with Steamboat Springs’ cozy bars, live music scene and legendary ski town social life. Big Head Todd rocks out at Gondola Square on a snowy evening.

Classic oldies and goodies

Step it up

Looking to step foot in a Yampa Valley landmark? At the mountain in Ski Time Square, check out the Tugboat Grill & Pub, with live music and an old-time Steamboat atmosphere. If downtown is more your style, check out the Old Town Pub at Sixth Street and Lincoln Avenue. OTP is a local and visitor favorite featuring live music, drink specials and Western atmosphere in a 1904 building that was once a hospital and a dance hall.

For lengthy wine lists stop by Harwigs L’Apogée (Ninth and Lincoln) for their late night bar menu. Cottonwood Grill (Seventh and Yampa) offers an Asian fusion twist—and an extensive martini list—in an upscale atmosphere with views of Howelsen Hill and the Yampa River. Bistro C.V. (Fourth and Lincoln) has a long wine list and alluring menu that features local ingredients. Riggio’s Ristorante (11th and Lincoln) offers Italian delicacies, happy hours deals and $2.50 desserts. Up at the mountain, saunter into the modern digs at Sevens in the Sheraton hotel lobby for a drink and a moonlit view over the ski area.

Straight to après ski Après ski options abound within seconds of the gondola. Slopeside Bar and Grill is a popular après ski destination right on the slopes with an outside ice bar in the spring and late night drink and pizza specials. At Saketumi next door, satisfy your sushi and sake cravings with happy hour specials starting at 4 p.m. The Bear River Bar & Grill next to the gondola offers live music and après ski grub, plus one of the best views of the free winter concert series. Ditto for Gondola Pub and Grill with its ideal Gondola Square location. Mingle among the locals at the Snowbird Restaurant bar inside the Ptarmigan Inn, or warm up next to an outdoor fireplace at Truffle Pig.

Downtown pubs and grub Once the county headquarters for cattle, horses and hay, Lincoln Avenue has evolved into the cosmopolitan capital of the Yampa Valley. Boasting more than 35 bars and restaurants, Steamboat’s main street has never been livelier. While in downtown, aka “Old Town,” check out the nightlife. The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant (Seventh and Lincoln) serves infamous “limit 3” margaritas and laid back ambiance. Just down the street is Steamboat’s only microbrewery, Mahogany Ridge Brewery and Grill (Fifth and Lincoln) which offers live music on weekends, happy-hour specials and an array of tasty homemade beers on tap. Move and groove to live tunes at the Boathouse Pub (Seventh and Yampa), one of the newest nightlife locations in town, right beside the Yampa River.

Late night eats, treats and music For a local vibe with authentic New Orleans cocktails and food, check out Sunpie’s Bistro on Yampa Street – beware of the Hurricanes. Mambo Italiano serves pizza and cocktails late. For a late night option that includes live music, dancing and Western character, check out the Ghost Ranch Saloon (Seventh and Lincoln). The Ghost Ranch Saloon has Steamboat’s newest dance floor and stage set up just for bands, featuring live music almost every night around its 1893 restored Brunswick Bar and a walk-up food window, open until 2 a.m. The Powder Room across the street from the Holiday Inn serves up martinis and a living room atmosphere.

Where to watch the game: Steamboat sports bars If a burger, fries and the game are more your style of late night relaxing, Steamboat boasts settings fit for a true sports fan. The Tap House (Seventh and Lincoln) is the Mecca of sports bars, a basement-level bar with more than 50 big-screen televisions, tons of game choices and famous wings. Or try Rex’s American Grill & Bar (next to the Holiday Inn), with killer appetizers and happy hour starting at 4:20 p.m. every day.  A complete list of Steamboat bars and restaurants starts on VG43. Peruse the Datebook starting on VG28 for free concerts, music festivals and more.


kids’ picks Beyond the bars – après ski for the under-age 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 all-inclusive home-style food and lively Western entertainment. 970-879-6111 | www.steamboat.com

Movies Grab a bag of popcorn, candy and a soda for a few hours of pure relaxation. Steamboat’s Wildhorse Stadium 6 movie theater shows those top-run movies you rarely get around to seeing when you’re not on vacation. 970-870-8222

Bowling Step off the slopes and into a lane at Snow Bowl for a good old-fashioned evening of bowling. Take on the pins traditionally, or request kid-friendly bumpers to help the bowling ball steer clear of the gutters. Go parents vs. kids, or mix it up for a little family-friendly competition. 970-879-9840 | www.snowbowl.net

Elk River Guest Ranch Clark, CO

Sweet Stops Tempting your sweet-tooth! Have an oldfashioned soda fountain treat at Lyon’s Corner Drug and Soda Fountain (970-8791114). Indulge in a scoop of Italy’s decadent frozen specialty at Ciao Gelato (970-8797979). Belly up for a monster sundae at Johnny B. Good’s diner (970-870-8400). Or venture down the street to Mahogany Ridge Brewery and Grill (970-879-3773), where there is microbrew beer for mom and dad and homemade root beer (making for a tantalizing float) for the kids.

lodging guide

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

Where to Stay

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.

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. Elk are a common sighting in the Yampa Valley and surrounding mountians.

Ryan and Ashley Chandler celebrate their wedding with daughter Emma.

Travelers in the early 1900s visited Steamboat Springs for the natural hot springs and vast hunting and fishing opportunities. Services back then were sparse. Today, Steamboat retains that same sense of isolation and adventure, but none of the need to rough it. Local businesses offer everything you need to plan and execute a special

Tie The Knot

event, get a head-to-toe rejuvenation or just get

your day-to-day business done. There’s no need to hit the trail in search of planning, printing, equipment or transportation services — it’s all available right here in Steamboat.

shopping guide

Banana Republic and the Gap in Steamboat Springs? No way. You’ll find Routt County wool blankets, honey from mountain wildflowers, Western attire, socks made to survive a Steamboat winter and unsurpassed outdoor equipment. A bonafide cowboy store shares the shopping scene

Where to shop

with boutiques, artists’ co-ops, bookstores, and home-furnishing stores. You won’t be surprised to find fishing gear and log chairs, but would you believe you’ll also find near-flawless diamonds and fine crystal? There’s more to the Yampa Valley than an outdoor playground. Steamboat is a treasure trove for shoppers.
