  • Lodging rental
  • Airfares to Steamboat / Hayden (HDN) or Denver (DEN)
  • Airport transfer - Airport shuttle or rental car (rental/gas/insurance/airport fees)
  • Food for your group for the week

  • Lodging rental + Catered Chalet package
  • Airfares to Steamboat / Hayden (HDN) or Denver (DEN)
  • Lift tickets
  • Ski school
  • Equipment rental

Can you save me money?

We are able to offer you many savings through discounted airfares, lift tickets and ski or snowboarding equipment rental which are available when combined with lodging.

Another factor to consider is that prices vary across the season according to demand - typically Christmas and New Year are the peak times; other times in the season may better suit people traveling on a budget.

How many can you accommodate?

Our chalets can either accommodate groups of all sizes sleeping up to 32 guests.For larger groups we can create a package with multiple homes.

Is Steamboat a ski resort suitable for families?

Yes! In fact Steamboat is internationally recognized as one of the best ski resorts in North America for a family ski vacation. The popularity of programs such as Kids-Ski-Free and Kids-Rent-Free have made Steamboat a very affordable experience for many. The ski school and kids programs are perennial favorites. The ease of accessibility with non-stop direct flights reduces travel time and eases the stress of the family vacation. Many families have moved to Steamboat to raise their children and you will see many of them on the mountain outside of school hours.

Can I pre-arrange my lift tickets and ski rentals?

Our aim is to make your vacation hassle-free. We will be delighted to organize your lift tickets for you so that they are ready when you arrive. If you need ski or snowboard equipment we recommend Christy Sports or Black Tie Ski Rentals who will fit you out in the convenience of your own chalet making your first day that much more relaxing. Their equipment is second to none and their rates are competitive with all mountain rental stores.

Should I buy Travel Insurance?

Vacations are a significant investment and require planning, often many months in advance. For peace of mind and to protect your holiday investment we offer two comprehensive travel insurance policies with Red Sky Insurance including Ski Trip Preserver and an option to Cancel for any Reason. See Travel Insurance.
