Partner Since: 2006
Shipping skis to Steamboat has been made convenient and reliable with this longstanding partnership between Steamboat and Luggage Forward.
Certainly there are bigger mountains, places where the slopes are steeper or the runs longer. But nowhere do the various parts add up to create such an exceptional mix-one that distinctly sets Steamboat apart from the rest of the world. A mix that is rooted in a genuine friendliness and an authentic western heritage not often found in today’s world of mega resort complexes that more closely resemble theme parks than true ski towns. It was first called Ski Town in the headline of a 1947 Associated Press photo captioned “The population of Steamboat Springs, Colorado is 1700. The number of persons who skis is reported to be 1,685. The others are children under one year of age.”
Located within the Park Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Steamboat is comprised of six peaks: Mt. Werner, Sunshine Peak, Storm Peak, Thunderhead Peak, Christie Peak and Pioneer Ridge. 2,965 acres/1,200 hectares of terrain offer a diversity of trails for all ability levels. Gladed areas of Pioneer Ridge, Sunshine and Storm Peak are Steamboat’s particular claim to fame, with Champagne Powder® snow in the trees for the most avid powderhounds. Remember, the term Champagne Powder snow was coined in Steamboat and this is the only place you’ll find it!
