Steamboat Unbridled – Making the Best Better
This is an exciting time for Steamboat as our physical environment embarks on an incredible renaissance. The new owner of the ski area, Intrawest, is investing in a re-grade of the base area, installation of a new high-speed lift from the base and other capital improvements. The base area's Urban Redevelopment Authority is embarking on 'Steamboat Unbridled,' with new signage, street alignment, a transit center and an interconnected promenade.
Over the past three seasons, millions of dollars in upgrade have been made to the Steamboat Ski Area. Steamboat's on-mountain momentum augments nearly $8 million in completed and planned public revitalization projects sweeping the mountain village.
"We've made dramatic improvements to the entire Steamboat vacation experience over the past three years," said Chris Diamond, president and chief operating officer of the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. The Steamboat Ski Area is one of the most important assests in the valley and it is continually improving and upgrading.

Building upon last year's record on-mountain capital expenditures, the majority of the 2008/2009 season improvements target continued base area re-grading, enhanced snowmaking, grooming, parking expansion, additional retail outlets, new rental equipment, automated external defibrillators, IT upgrades and master planning. These improvement continue to make Steamboat one of the finest resorts in the world.
For the 2009/10 winter season, Intrawest poured $2.5 million into various on and off mountain projects. They expanded the Kids’ Vacation Center, opened a new Ski & Snowboard School Ticket Office and Patrol First Aid Base Facility within the new One Steamboat Place building and further enhanced its already state-of-the-art snowmaking system. In addition, Steamboat’s City Council gave a green light to improvement projects at the mountain village area including a new public promenade and day lighting of Burgess Creek.
Plus getting here has never been easier through the resort's nonstop flight program and the recently renovated $18 million Steamboat/Hayden Airport terminal facility! Starting in winter 2008/09, Steamboat began offering ALL-JET, nonstop flights from nine major airports, with convenient connections nationwide. This coupled with the recent expansion and improvements at the Steamboat/Hayden Airport, makes Steamboat the most conveniently accessed ski resort in Colorado.
Steamboat's 'Downtown Renaissance' includes six new mixed-use developments, including both residential ownership and main street retail opportunities. In addition, new restaurants, bars and shops keep the dowtown area lively. For a private tour of the exciting new developments contact Pam today.
