Explore the changing seasons during the coming of fall in Steamboat Springs. Colorado is never quite so beautiful as when the changing foliage once again graces our area. We find the fall season to be one of our favorite times during the year to live in Steamboat Springs, and many of our guests say it’s their favorite time to visit as well! Here are some of our favorite activities to enjoy in the fall in Steamboat Springs:

Watch the Sandhill Cranes

One of the most majestic creatures you will ever see is the sandhill crane, one of the many magnificent animals on display in the area. Hundreds of sandhill cranes flock to Steamboat Springs every year in early fall to feed before continuing their journey south. Venture out to the many trails in the area to hopefully see these incredible birds in person. One of the best ways to get a glimpse of everything is with helicopter tour. Local charters will take you high up in the air where you can see all the way to Yampa Valley.

Steamboat Zip Line

Another incredible way to see the area up high is with a thrilling zip line ride through the treetops. Steamboat Zip Line Tours offers six segmented zip line courses that allow you to get the best views of the Flat Top Mountain Range. Your journey starts with an ATV ride before you zip down this high speed attraction. Most tours take approximately two to three hours and are perfect for groups of six to eight people.

Enjoy OktoberWest

Fall in Steamboat Springs is never complete without celebrating Oktoberfest with a cold beer in hand. The folks in Steamboat Springs know how to throw one of the best Oktoberfest celebrations in the state with their annual OktoberWest festival. This popular event starts with the Friday Beer Stroll featuring local restaurants in the downtown neighborhood. The big event goes down the rest of the weekend in Gondola Square with live music, a delicious cook-off, and plenty of regional beers only available in Colorado. Join OktoberWest this year on September 13th and 14th for an incredible weekend of beer and live entertainment.
