Onthesnow.com Overview of Steamboat Springs:
Steamboat tops out at 10,568 feet, which is relatively low for Colorado (where treeline averages 11,500 feet), so spruces and aspens define Steamboat’s terrain and make it a powder-snob’s paradise: The tree cover keeps snow pillowy by sheltering it from sun and wind. Plus, most pitches aren’t too steep—25 degrees is typical—so even intermediates enjoy these glades. Powder days are frequent and deep, thanks to 349 inches of annual snowfall. And lift lines are rare. Steamboat’s set-apart location in northwest Colorado (three hours from Denver by car) keeps crowds at bay and preserves the town’s authentic ranching character: Local beef still appears on restaurant menus.
