Details

Steamboat area has a mix of terrain, with a lot of snowmobile access. Rabbit Ear's pass is more commonly known for snowmobiliers, but there is some great skiing out there.  Motorized vehicles for during winter are only allowed on the eastern side of the pass, and non-motorized traffic is on the west.  There are a number of other peaks, recreation areas, and cross country ski locations to go visit in this area.

How to Get There

The best way to get to the steamboat area is to drive down highway 40 west through winter park, granby, and frasier.  You can also get there by taking I-70 West until dillon, and going North on Route 9.  Both are a good option, but 40 is a little bit more scenic.
