our Favorite Family Ski Resorts

Snowmass & Steamboat

There are so many mountains to choose from  but  for families we  have come to love both Snowmass & Steamboat.  They both offer great value, great ski schools & plenty of off mountain acvities...

Four Reasons To visit

Steamboat

Kids under 12 ski free w/ paid adult...

Steamboat stands out w/ their family friendly ski passes.  Kids under 12 ski free w/ a paid adult.  Our family took advantage of this promotion by inviting grandpa to ski w/ the family....

A True Cowboy Town...

Five Minutes from mountain village you have the wonderful town of Steamboat w/ great restaurant, shops and entertainment.  Our kids love arriving & going directly to Johnny B Good's diner.

It's all about the snow...

The snow in Steamboat has been named "Champagne Powder" because its low percentage of water content.  It makes for perfect conditions to enjoy the diverse terrain.

Direct flights every Saturday from Newark...

Steamboat is a 4 hour drive from Denver but the Saturday direct flights from Newark make it easier than ever to enjoy one of our favorite family ski resorts.

Snowmass

Treehouse kids adventure center...

Conveniently located, this 25,000 square food family center is perfect for young beginners to start learning how to ski.  

Dedicated ski area for beginner adults...

Ride up the gondola to the exclusive Elk Camp. The learning center is exclusively designed for adults. ...

Smaller Crowds...

It takes a little longer to get to Snowmass from the East Coast so crowds are much smaller than resorts with direct connections.

Enjoy Aspen...

The town of Aspen is 25 minutes away.  You can enjoy world class shopping, restaurants & bars...

Avoid ski school on President's day.  This is the busiest day of the year and it takes the ski schools longer to organize the groups and classes...
