Spring conditions have arrived, but we'll keep the ski trails open and groomed as long as we have snow! All trails were freshly groomed this morning. Come enjoy the beautiful weather and fresh trails. Grooming will be done as conditions allow in order to make the trails last as long as possible. We can't groom when it's too warm or we'll lose snow. There are no trail fees but each vehicle needs a day pass ($7) or an annual pass. Passes and maps are available at the Visitor Center. We are one of the few locations where you can ski with your dog on groomed trails. Please follow regulations to keep dogs on leash and clean up after them. Grooming is provided by the Steamboat Lake Snow Club, a non-profit, volunteer organization. Consider becoming a member or making a donation.
Steamboat Lake State Park Touring Center
1. The junction of Pine Grove Rd and US 40 is at the first traffic light as you come into Steamboat Springs from the East on US 40. Ski Haus is on the south-east corner of the intersection.
2. Continue North on Highway 40 about 1 mile until it curves left (going West) and becomes Lincoln Avenue.
3. Travel West on US 40 through downtown Steamboat Springs for about 4 miles until you come to County Road 129.
4. Turn right (North) on County Road 129 and drive 25 miles (go past Clark) to the Steamboat Lake Visitor Center located on the left side of the road. The Visitor Center is just past Hahn's Peak Village.
5. Park at the visitor center to get information and pick up a parks pass. Passes are available after hours from the self-service dispenser near the front door of the building. Park behind the building and access the trails from there ... you will love this quiet and scenic area!
The Steamboat Lake State Park Touring Center is located at over 8000 feet of elevation and offers some of the best early and late season snow in the area. Located within the boundaries of the park the touring center is nestled between Hahn's Peak and Sand Mountain just 40
minutes North of Steamboat Springs.
The area is officially open by the weekend before Christmas but trails are usually groomed a week or two earlier (depending on conditions). Trail users are required to purchase a daily parks pass, which is $7.00 per vehicle. Passes are available at the park visitor center or from the self-service station during the evenings. Dogs are allowed but must be on a 6-foot leash at all times. The leash law is strictly enforced so opt to ski the National Forest trails if you want your dog to run.
The touring center features 15 kilometers of groomed trails and all trails are groomed at least twice per week. Most of the terrain in the area is beginner and intermediate but there are a few more challenging runs as well. If you enjoy well groomed trails, breathtaking views, and no crowds you will love this area.
Ski rentals are available in Steamboat Springs.
All grooming at the park is provided by the Steamboat Lake Snow Club, a local non-profit.

Yurts are also available at the park. Contact the park at (970) 879-3922 for additional information.
