Summer in Steamboat Springs: Welcome Back to the Outdoors

We’ve Missed You and We’re Ready to Welcome You Back to Steamboat Springs: Save the Date!

Ah, how we’ve missed you! We’re ready to welcome you back to Steamboat Springs. We’ve been diligently and thoughtfully planning how to reopen in a way that keeps both our visitors and residents safe. Please see our “5 Commitments of Containment” below.

We want you to be the first to know what’s happening in Steamboat this summer, so we’ve included our updated event calendar. Please note that while this includes what is planned as of right now, everything is subject to change as we follow state and local guidelines. Please visit for the most up-to-date information on events, as well as the status of our most popular local attractions, including Strawberry Park Hot Springs, Old Town Hot Springs, Yampa River Botanic Park, Tread of Pioneers Museum, Fish Creek Falls and Yampa River Core Trail.

While some of our events will look different — some are virtual and our farmers market includes food vendors to start — they will still retain the hospitable Western spirit you love. We’re also lucky to have an abundance of wide-open spaces and outdoor activities ready to satiate your yearning to get out. Here in Steamboat, adventure awaits: our vast trail networks are perfect for hiking and biking, while our gorgeous lakes and refreshing rivers are ready for your tube, boat, SUP, or even just a dip of your toes. See you soon!

We have taken thoughtful steps in Steamboat Springs to be able to welcome our visitors back. Our businesses are prepared with new mitigation plans and safety standards that include resources from both the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control. Our community is committed to keeping you safe through the “5 Commitments of Containment,” which you’ll find below. We are asking our visitors to help us play a role in everyone’s safety by following these commitments to ensure we are all able to enjoy Steamboat Springs this summer.

1. Maintain six feet of physical distance.

2. Wash my hands often.

3. Cover my face in public.

4. Stay at home if I am at risk or sick.

5. Seek testing if I have symptoms.
