  • Choose one of two airports to fly into Steamboat Springs. Denver airport (DIA) is 120 miles south, and a 3-hour drive through a truly scenic portion of Colorado. Steamboat/Hayden (HDN) airport, 25 miles west of town, is also a gorgeous and scenic option if you can handle the small planes.
  • Hot air balloon rides might seem like a cold way to spend your winter morning here, but bundled up under that warm hot-air furnace during the later winter month of March is a perfect way to see the valley from a bird's-eye view.
  • Three words: layers, layers, layers! Without the humidity, 20 degrees doesn't seem as cold here... still, the best way to make sure you stay warm is with several (five for me!) non-cotton layers under your ski jacket.
  • Blend in! One sure way to stick out like a sore thumb is to wear those Chewbacca boots and a full-length fur. Leave the Aspen clothing for further south and dress like a local in simple, functional clothing.
  • Look west from nearly any location to see the famous 'Sleeping Giant' formation positioned at the west end of Lincoln Avenue downtown. With his snowy blanket, he's the one that gives you that 'Yampa Valley Curse.'

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
