Mountain Area

About the Mountain Area Around the Steamboat Ski Resort

Steamboat locals living around the Steamboat Ski Area refer to the neighborhood as ‘The Mountain,’ and residences range from ski-in, ski-out vacation rental properties right around the base area and along Burgess Creek Road, to supremely luxurious Colorado log homes with panoramic views of the entire valley, to affordable condos, townhomes and homes in family-friendly neighborhoods (east of Walton Creek Road) perfect for first home buyers and investors looking for rental properties.

The Mountain Area draws ski enthusiasts – whether they vacation here, move to Steamboat for a “ski bum” winter, or settle in for life. By day, everyone shares a common lust for Champagne Powder snow and “pressing glass” they can get to their secret stash before anyone else. When the lifts close, locals and tourists alike can be found at the après ski hot spots, like Slopeside, Tug Boat, and the Sheraton Saddles Bar, or at some of Steamboat’s finest restaurants, such as Café Diva, Saketumi and Truffle Pig.

Historic downtown Steamboat Springs is just 3 miles away or 5-10 minutes by car (depending on how much snow we are getting that day)! Mountain area residents fully benefit from the free Steamboat Springs City Buses, as well as the Yampa River core Trail that connects the ski resort to downtown. Real estate around the Steamboat Ski Area also benefits from being close to Steamboat’s grocery stores, Walmart, Blockbuster and CPL – Central Park Liquor – Steamboat’s largest liquor store.
