The Steamboat Lake State Park Touring Center is located at over 8000 feet of elevation and offers some of the best early and late season snow in the area. Located within the boundaries of the park the touring center is nestled between Hahn's Peak and Sand Mountain just 40
minutes North of Steamboat Springs.
The area is officially open by the weekend before Christmas but trails are usually groomed a week or two earlier. Trail users are required to purchase a daily parks pass which is $7.00 per vehicle. Passes are available at the park visitor center or from the self-service station during the evenings. Dogs are allowed but must be on a 6-foot leash at all times. The leash law is strictly enforced so opt to ski the National Forest trails if you want your dog to run.
The touring center features 15 kilometers of groomed trails and all trails are groomed at least twice per week. Most of the terrain in the area is beginner and intermediate but there are a few more challenging runs as well. If you enjoy well groomed trails, breathtaking views, and no crowds you will love this area.
Ski rentals are available in Steamboat Springs.
All grooming at the park is provided by the Steamboat Lake Snow Club, a local non-profit. Meals are available in the area at the Clark Store Deli, Glen Eden, Hahn's Peak Cafe, and Steamboat Lake Outfitters. Rental cabins are available from the Marina call 970-879-7019. Uurts are also available at the park. Contact the park at (970) 879-3922 for additional information.
No ski or snow shoe rentals are available at the park so bring your gear with you from town.
