For some Steamboat residents, a home on the mountain means one thing – easier access to skiing. Known as “Ski Town USA,” Steamboat almost 3,000-acre resort attracts winter sports enthusiasts from around the world. A house or condo on the mountain can give the feeling of having miles and miles of first rate ski runs in your own backyard.
But living on the mountain means more than just the chance to take a run or two before work or to be first to ski on 14 inches of fresh powder.
It means being close to some of Steamboat’s largest stores, so restocking the refrigerator or picking up a video can be done within minutes. It means having top-notch golfing and mountain biking outside your door, as well as nearby playing fields, hiking trails and an indoor tennis court. It means being able to walk to the rock concerts, balloon festivals, and other events that take place on the mountain. And it means living on steeply curving roads that provide views of stunning sunsets over town.
The area offers a wide range of home opportunities, from older, more affordable condominium units to luxury single-family homes and town homes with ski in and ski out access. With a range of home styles and prices to choose from, and the accessibility of skiing, shopping and other activities, many people are happy to find a place to live in the mountain area.
