A Few Ideas for Off-Mountain Adventures
To spend time in the crisp, cool Colorado air, take a short drive to Saddleback Ranch where you can tube, horseback ride or go on a magical horse-drawn sleigh ride. Steamboat Snowmobile Tours offers a sunset ride on Rabbit Ears Pass complete with dinner prepared by your guide.
The Steamboat Ski Touring Center allows you to stretch your stride with skate and classic skiing on miles of groomed trails with incredible valley and mountain vistas.
Other unique winter activities include dog sledding; testing your winter driving savvy; chipping your way up a frozen waterfall; soaring above the Yampa Valley in a hot-air balloon; mountain biking the snow-covered trails on Emerald Mountain; and fish continue to bite in the winter so try fly fishing and cast lines on the Yampa River.
