Winter in Steamboat Springs is alive with family fun! Amazing sleigh rides, winter fireworks, lots of free kid’s activities are all part of Ski Town USA’s winter wonderland. Before you stroll down Lincoln Ave let us give you a peek at Life Essentials Day Spa family favorites.
Free Skiing Every Sunday!
That’s right Howelsen Hill is in the heart of Steamboat Springs. One of the oldest hills in Colorado this small ski hill is packed with adventure. It is the home of many of the Olympic athletes in multiple disciplines such as alpine, nordic, freestyle, and snowboarding.
But don’t let that intimidate you! They have a full range of runs from the basic green to the black diamond run on the face. The best part is that rates are reasonable and the lines are short. Make sure to grab the whole family and ski free both nordic and alpine on Sunday.
Listen, can you hear it? A little jingle, jingle, jingle sliding quietly through the freshly fallen snow. Bring the Western winter alive as you snuggle next to your honey under a pile of blankets headed to a gourmet five-course meal. It is certainly a picturesque way to see the stars at night.
Want to really surprise that girl of yours? Choose a two-person sleigh for a night you won’t soon forget.
