Welcome to Steamboat Springs Welcome to Steamboat Springs! We’re glad you decided to visit us this summer and experience the world-class resort town and all its amenities. If relaxing is your top priority on vacation, try tubing the Yampa River with family and friends, enjoying a summer concert, or soaking in our therapeutic hot springs. From fly fishing to boating to hiking, you can spend an almost endless summer day outdoors. To supercharge your time here, explore our new mountain trails on foot or two wheels or meander along our winding country roads on your bike and visit our cattle ranches and hay fields. Our eclectic restaurants and lively bars offer a full menu of options for whatever you’re craving. Dine or imbibe on a rooftop downtown, along the river or at 9,080 feet at the top of the gondola.

Welcomes You To Steamboat! Paige Boucher moved to Steamboat Springs in 1981 with initial aspirations of being a ski bum. She eventually left to travel for a while, but her husband’s job at Moots brought the couple back to Steamboat in 1997. An avid cyclist, as well as a local entrepreneur (Boucher’s Inside Out public relations firm is based in Steamboat), Boucher is devoted to expanding Ski Town USA’s notoriety to include summer’s Bike Town USA. That includes efforts to extend the Yampa River Core Trail, build more beginner mountain bike trails on the valley floor, and improve signage, maps and trail directions so visitors (and locals) can enjoy Steamboat’s abundant trails. A new edition of the “Steamboat Bike Guide” will include an interactive web site – and Boucher’s pet project, the Safe Routes to School program, is helping alleviate traffic and making hiking and biking to school safer and more accessible to families. “The legend that if you visit Steamboat you will return is true. The valley has become our home and community. My daughter was born

Steamboat Springs Visitors’ Guide: What do you love most about Steamboat?

P.B.: Eight inches of powder, a blue bird day and no deadlines or conference calls to make me think twice about taking advantage of the powder clause.

Paige Boucher: This community really cares about quality of life and each other. There is openness to new ideas, and people are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and work hard to make those ideas become reality. Everybody I know is involved in some sort of community volunteer effort: building bike trails, coaching kids or supporting the arts, the schools, recreation or environmental efforts. VG: What makes a perfect Steamboat summer day for you? P.B.: Family. Start with a road ride, before it gets too hot, with my husband and 13-year-old daughter on a tandem, and me on a single. Then grab lunch someplace on Yampa Street where

VG: What makes a perfect Steamboat winter day for you?

VG: Favorite bike rides? P.B.: We are lucky to have such a huge variety of cycling around Steamboat. My favorite road ride is out River Road along the Yampa River (County Road 14) to County Road 35, to the Hilton Gulch schoolhouse. My favorite place to mountain bike is anyplace on Emerald Mountain. If I only have an hour or so, I stay on the front side and ride up Lupine to Blair Witch and down MGM. If I have more time, I head out to Cow Creek and ride the new Beall trail/Ridge trail loop. I also love commuting to my daughter’s school by bike. The kids here have no idea how lucky they are to start and


end their day with a walk or a ride through Butcher Knife Canyon. Research shows time spent in nature before school has a positive impact on learning. Of course, the kids don’t care about that – they just know it’s more fun to ride bikes to school. VG: As a mom, what aspects of the Yampa Valley do you most love sharing with kids? P.B.: I feel fortunate to be raising my daughter in a place where life revolves around the outdoors. When someone connects with nature and enjoys it, they are more likely to protect and care for nature. We have it right outside our door, every day of the year. VG: Where can we find you when you’ve got a day off in Steamboat? P.B.: I try to connect with a friend or my family for a ski, hike or a bike ride. Then I will relax at home or in my yard. I love having friends over, or we’ll walk into town for dinner. VG: What are your favorite Steamboat amenities? P.B.: Howelsen Hill is absolutely the gem of Steamboat. The setting is gorgeous and the lodge is classic. It’s a safe, healthy place for kids to hang out. Is there another city park in the world where you can hike, ice skate, skate ski, run, walk your dog, alpine ski, ski jump, mountain bike, ride horses, go to the rodeo, ride the alpine slide, snowshoe, play baseball, tennis or volleyball or hang out at the playground? Did I miss anything? VG: Favorite way to cool off on a hot summer day? P.B.: I love to jump in the Yampa at the D hole, west of the library, for a swim. It’s not as cold as you’d think because of the hot springs that feed into it. It feels so good after a bike ride! VG: What are your “not to be missed” events on Steamboat’s summer calendar? P.B.: I try never to miss the free summer concerts at Howelsen Hill. It’s like a big party. Everybody comes out, the kids play, the adults visit and we get some really great bands. VG: Have one trail recommendation that everyone could, and should, ride this summer? P.B.: Everybody can enjoy the Core Trail along the river. It winds back and forth and connects the mountain to downtown. Make sure to stop and enjoy the river and the view along the way.

On the Cover Kelly Bastone caught Randy Nelson and his dog, Farmer, cruising through the wildflowers on Emerald Mountain’s Beall Trail. “I wasn’t actually riding with Randy that day. But I liked the look of the mule’s ears along the trail, so I got off my bike and buried myself in the flowers to shoot a photo of my husband, Ben, as he rode by. Randy and Farmer happened to be rolling along the trail right behind Ben so I just kept shooting,” Kelly says. “I love early summer photos, because that’s when the flowers are lush and vibrant, and the mountains still have tons of snow outlining them, so you get good contrast.” ACTIVITIES | LODGING | OUTDOORS | DINING | REUNIONS & WEDDINGS | SHOPPING | SERVICES | REALTORS

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 Listed on the Steamboat Springs Register of Historic Places 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 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.

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. (Artists’ Gallery Of Steamboat) 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 (The Laundry Restaurant & 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. Crawford’s descendants purchased the house in 2004 and carefully restored it. C. Historic Chamber of Commerce Building ● (Yampa Valley Land Trust)/1201 Lincoln Ave. Located along Soda Creek next to the library, this small 1960 structure is one of Czechoslovakian-born architect Eugene Sternberg’s two mid-century modern “usonian style” buildings in downtown Steamboat listed on the National Historic Register. Sternberg (1915-2005) came to the U.S. after World War II and soon established his architectural practice in Denver. The building’s nearly flat inverted pitch roof, gives the visual impression of a butterfly in flight, so that locally, the building is known as the “Butterfly Building.” 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.

On The Water Steamboat Springs is surrounded by cool, clear water. Dip into the lakes, rivers and favorite fishing holes. Raft

Whitewater raft the Yampa River through Steamboat in early summer or travel west to Cross Mountain with class IV and V rapids. The Elk River is a thrilling early season option; later the mighty Colorado runs all summer through canyons southwest of Steamboat. See “Boating” listings on page VG44 for river rafting outfitters.

Fly Fish

The Yampa River is famous for fly fishing, and catch-and-release restrictions apply throughout town. There is free public access all along the river – but you need a fishing license ($9/ day or $26/year for Colorado residents). Only artificial flies and lures are allowed, and all fish must be returned to the water. Kids will like fishing at Casey’s Pond (U.S. 40 and Walton Creek Road), where the water is still and the catches plentiful. Novice and diehard fishermen can find experienced local guides listed under “Fishing” on VG45.

Swim

Aryeh Copa

Cool off on a hot summer day with a plunge into the Yampa River. Downtown swimming holes include the C-Hole behind the Bud Werner Memorial Library and the D-Hole just downstream – both have appealing sunny rocks for spectators. If a snowmelt swim leaves you chilled to the bone, stop at Rich Weiss Park and warm up in the runoff from Old Town Hot Springs. Wake surfing is one of many water sports at Stagecoach Lake, one-half hour south of Steamboat Springs.

Boat

Three Colorado state parks with lakes surround Steamboat. All offer camping, fishing and hiking; two have marinas where you can rent everything from kayaks to pontoons and water-ski boats. Steamboat Lake State Park (27 miles north of Steamboat) has a marina (970-879-7019) and is suitable for sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and jet skiing. Stagecoach State Park (17 miles south of Steamboat) offers recreation and wildlife watching as the lake is divided into wakeless and non-wakeless areas for fishing boats, pontoons, sailboats, waterskiing and kayaking, with rentals available at the Stagecoach Marina (970-736-8342). Bring your canoe to Pearl Lake State Park (22 miles north of Steamboat) – a high mountain lake where all boating is wakeless.

Paddle Board

Kayak

Yampa River Festival & the Paddling Life Pro Invitational

Steamboat’s tubing season starts in early July. As soon as spring runoff slows down, tube rentals begin with shuttle services for trips up and down the river. Grab an inner tube and take a cool float down the Yampa. See “Tubing” listings on page VG49 for tube rental shops. Dip your paddle in spring whitewater or mellow mid-summer flow on the Yampa River. Backdoor Sports and Mountain Sports Kayak School rent boats and can teach you to paddle. Backdoor Sports (970- 879-6249) and Mountain Sports Kayak School (970-879-8794)

Standup paddle boarding is the latest water craze to hit mountain sport enthusiasts. Try it on flat water on one of Steamboat’s local lakes, or up the ante and coast down the Yampa River’s rapids. Ski Haus (970-879-0385) rents epoxy, inflatable and soft top boards for you to transport to your preferred watering hole.

One Perfect Summer Week A weekend at one of Steamboat Springs’ signature events is amazing, but to truly explore the Yampa Valley’s many summer facets takes longer than two days. Since variety is the spice of Steamboat, here is a sample itinerary that adds up to one perfect week in Steamboat.

Sunday – A Day at the Ranch

Steamboat is the hub of weekend activity so a day out on horseback makes a great local getaway. Ride with a guide into the mountains’ cool breezes and shady meadows. Or join a cattle drive at a Routt County ranch. Either way, when the sun sets, relaxation will be in order, so pre-arrange a massage at your condo. The Zirkel Wilderness, one-half hour north of Steamboat, is crisscrossed with trails — the perfect setting for a day hike along the Mica Basin Trail. Begin on Gilpin Trail at the end of Seedhouse Road, past Clark. After about 1.5 miles, veer left onto Mica Trail and traverse to pristine Mica Lake, surrounded by dramatic peaks. On your way back into town, visit the oldfashioned Clark Store for ice cream.

Tuesday – Family Day

A great day for cruiser bikes on the Core Trail, which runs all the way through town. Park at a tube-rental shop and float the gentle midsummer currents of the Yampa River. A shuttle will deliver you back up-river to your bike. After lunch, head to the Howler, the alpine slide at Howelsen Hill. Side-by-side tracks make for dual fun. Then attend the late afternoon concert at Strings Music Festival. Tuesday’s youth/family series is geared toward kids. Appetites will be hardy after this busy day, so end it on your deck, grilling Yampa Valleyraised beef under the stars.

Wednesday – Bike Town USA

Bike Town USA boasts more than 500 miles of mountain bike trails. While lower Spring Creek Trail is ideal for kids and North Routt’s Mad Creek and Red Dirt trails are more challenging, we’re opting for the Ridge, Beall and Rotary trails on the backside of Emerald Mountain. These scenic new trails can be accessed either from Howelsen Hill or the old quarry road, which starts in

Monday – Discover the Zirkels

An aspiring cowboy oversees the corrals before a horseback ride. the Fairview neighborhood. After your ride, relax in the hot pools at Old Town Hot Springs, while the kids twist through the loops of the twin waterslides.

Thursday – In case of rain

Steamboat is renowned for its sunshine, but every so often it rains. When it does, enjoy the indoor courts at the Tennis Center at Steamboat Springs, which earned the U.S. Tennis Association’s “Facility of the Year” award last year. Then discover why Steamboat was named one of the top small art towns in the country. More than a dozen galleries showcase styles ranging from traditional western art to contemporary works. Be sure to stop at Steamboat Art Museum, affectionately known as “SAM,” and the Tread of Pioneers Museum, which houses a renowned ski exhibit, as well as extensive regional historical collections.

Friday – On the Water

Venture north of town early in the morning with your fishing rod. Public waters along the scenic Elk River are home to large populations of brown, rainbow and cutthroat trout.

After flyfishing, continue to Steamboat Lake State Park. At the marina, pick up homemade fudge (a must even for those who don’t generally eat the sweet treat), rent a pontoon boat and host a floating BBQ. The lake is one of only three in Colorado to receive a gold-medal fishing designation. Back in town, board the ski area gondola for drinks atop the mountain and the valley’s most spectacular sunsets.

Saturday – Farm-to-Table-to-Trail

Saturday is Steamboat’s Farmers’ Market. Arrive early for the best selection of local produce, meat and bakery products. Head back to your home or condo for a home-cooked meal, or wander from stall to stall, sampling everything from burritos to kabobs. Then head to the ski area’s new downhill bike park, which opened last summer with a few “green” (less difficult) trails, and ambitious plans to expand. If you’re not quite up to that much adrenaline, the ski area also offers an expansive mountain bike trail system. In the evening, celebrate your last night in the ‘Boat with dinner at one of Steamboat’s fine-dining restaurants. And over dessert, start making plans to visit again.

Bird Watch

The Yampa Valley’s bird watching delights novice and veteran birders alike. The season starts in May with the International Migratory Bird Day at the Carpenter Ranch (a prime spot for bird watching all summer long), followed by the return of the sandhill cranes in June and the rise of raptors come fall.

Rocky Mountain Ventures offers guided half-day and full-day trips to thrill-seekers ages 6 and up. Most climbs are “top rope,” meaning climbers are belayed by a guide from bolted anchors. 970- 870-8440 | www.verticalgrip.com Past, present and future Olympians launch from the plastic on Howelsen Hill throughout summer.

Buy “Steamboat” Local by Michelle Krasilinec Smartwool President Mark Satkiewicz rides the Yampa River Core Trail.

The Yampa Valley inspires entrepreneurs.

Corey Kopischke

Visitors often remark about Steamboat Springs’ happy locals. Residents have long said, “It’s in the water” – an age-old reference to downtown’s Lithia Spring. These days, the upbeat Steamboat attitude is fed by the mountain lifestyle and an entrepreneurial spirit. Many local businesses produce high-quality items with national and international recognition. The Yampa Valley’s beauty and Steamboat’s lifestyle inspire these companies. While you’re here, sample their goods; take them home, too – they make great souvenirs.

Get dialed in on the trails. Literally.

The Boa Closure System, created by local company Boa Technology, produces a glove-like fit for hiking or biking shoes. Many companies have partnered with Boa to incorporate the custom lacing system into their footwear. Rodeo2012_SSVisGd14_F_Layout 1 3/30/12 12:44 PM Page 1

Need new wheels? Kent Eriksen Cycles and Moots build handcrafted high-performance titanium bicycle frames and components. These local bike builders customize and create road, mountain and cross bikes. Don’t forget to stash a Honey Stinger bar, chew or Lance Armstrong-endorsed waffle in your pack for extra energy.

Fire it up and get saucy.

Summer offers long days and warm nights for grilling. Take advantage of your condo’s balcony or head to a local park to put some Sweetwood Cattle Company links, brats or ranch-raised Angus steaks on the grill. No fire? The natural, wood-smoked beef jerky provides quick bites on-the-go to satisfy your inner cowboy. Since 1994, Wing-Time has produced an authentic Buffalo-style chicken wing sauce. Try five zesty varieties, including garlic with parmesan. Chef Dean Martin’s Asian Barbeque Sauce & Marinade fuses the rich traditions of Pacific Rim cuisine with the tangy flavor of Western barbecue – and it tastes great on everything. If you’re hungry and waiting for your flight at the Yampa Valley Regional Airport, check out the new restaurant Three Wire Bar and Grill, where Martin is head chef.

What floats your boat?

Hog Island Boat Works builds indestructible, unsinkable and incomparable watercrafts. For fishing and boating, these drift boats will log hundreds of hours on surrounding lakes and in the Yampa River. While owning one doesn’t promise you a lucky fishing day, you’ll look good on the water.

The stars at night are big and bright.

For car camping or backpacking, Big Agnes makes a tent to fit your travel. Make sure you’re dressed comfortably and warm for the campfire, too. Layer up in techy apparel from BAP or try Merino wool products with maximum breathability from Smartwool. For a gourmet treat, and the perfect ending to your day, enjoy a Chocolate Soup macaroon – found at their Steamboat bakery, and now in the cookie aisle at Whole Foods.

On the horizon.

Be sure to watch for other Steamboat-made goodies: beer from Butcherknife Brewing Company; socks from Point6, and bath and body products from Little Moon Essentials. The companies are favorites with locals and have started making a splash outside the Yampa Valley.

Nightlife by Michelle Krasilinec

Warm Weather Nights Whether you’ve been hiking or biking all day or floating down the Yampa River, the sunset hour in Steamboat Springs offers plenty of opportunities to set the tone for the rest of the night. From mellow to rip-roaring, Steamboat has it all and you can find it on riverside porches and patios, along main street, and at the mountain. 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. 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 down-

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.

Lively Summer Decks and Patios

Downtown, Sunpie’s fills its casual riverside yard all afternoon and into the evening. Affordable eats and drinks are their specialty along with one of Steamboat’s strongest drinks, the Hurricane. Settle in to the Double Z BBQ for a pitcher across from the river. Mambo Italiano features an extensive deck, outdoor bar and beer garden plus drink specials including several varieties of that cool summer treat, the Mojito. The Boathouse Pub has riverside dining on the patio and upper deck seating to take in the view, plus live acoustic sets often featuring local bands. Sweetwater Grill is a prime location to watch tubers float by, catch live music and enjoy a cocktail on the deck. Rex’s Backyard Bar has been a local hot spot since it opened in the Holiday Inn.

backyard games with the locals who walk or bike there via the Walton Creek trail. The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant serves infamous “limit 3” margaritas and laid-back ambiance on the rooftop patio. Just down the street is Steamboat’s only micro-brewery, Mahogany Ridge Brewery and Grill, which offers live music on weekends, happy-hour specials and an array of homemade beers on tap.

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 downhilling. 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. 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 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 Guide

Bracken ferns line the trails near Sarvis Creek, a classic fall hike and flyfishing destination.

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.

Cautionary Notes

1. Tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return. Check in with them upon your return. 2. Weather changes rapidly in the mountains. Plan high elevation trips for the morning hours. Afternoon thunderstorms with lightning are common. The threat is most significant along ridge lines, high points and open areas. Do not seek shelter under trees. 3. Minimize your exposure to the sun.

VG 64 | ONL INE AT WWW. STE A MBOA TC HA MBE R.C OM

4. Pace yourself and drink lots of water. 5. High altitude sickness symptoms include headache, dizziness, nausea and weakness. Rest, proper hydration and descent to a lower elevation can help alleviate symptoms.

To date, Timberline Trailriders has received $900,000 in grants from the state trails program for the Routt National Forest system. The primary staging areas for off-road motorcycles are in North Routt County, Yampa and on the Walden district. Information and motor vehicle use (MRUM) maps are available at Forest Service offices.

Come Back Soon

Steamboat Springs is prepared to lure you back for a dose of our irresistible winter. Here are a dozen tempting reasons to come back for the snow. 1 | Party in the snowy streets: Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival turns 100 next year. 2 | Ski and ride in hundreds of inches of Champagne Powder™ snow. 3 | Soak in the natural hot springs while snowflakes melt on your head. 4 | Boogie at the base of the slopes – from mid-winter music festivals to free spring concerts. 5 | Witness future Olympic greatness as young ski jumpers soar at Howelsen Hill. 6 | Laugh ‘til you cry as you fly down a tubing hill. 7 | Climb straight up a frozen waterfall – or snowshoe around to the top. 8 | Hurtle through the powder at high speed. Your choice: dog sled or snowmobile? 9 | Play cowboy on a snowy horseback ride or a horse-drawn sleigh ride. 10 | Saunter around a real Western downtown bustling under a cozy blanket of snow.

12 | Revel in sunshine, soft snow, blue skies and Springalicious festivities…before summer returns again.

Corey Kopischke

11 | Sink into luxurious off-slope relaxation with spas, yoga studios, galleries and more.

Local traffic mounts on mainstreet before Steamboat’s Winter Carnival street events.
