You’ve got lots of options when it comes to celebrating the joy and adventure of New Year’s, but staying in Steamboat Springs should be at the top of your list! From hip restaurants and breweries to the simple happiness that fresh snowfall brings, this will be the New Year’s in Steamboat you can feel great about.
New Year’s Eve
Let your day begin at one of our rental properties, which are situated in various locations by the Steamboat ski slopes. Take in a breath of that crisp mountain air and take a trip or three down the majesty of our snowy white slopes. Then head back inside to a nice mug of hot cocoa and play a board game by the fireplace with the whole family. Nothing wrong with a little friendly competition on your vacation.
Strawberry Park Hot Springs is a great place for the whole group to enjoy. You’ll love being in the middle of nature in this gorgeous natural hot spring. It’s perfect for unwinding from the day-to-day stresses of life. Refocus and re-center at the end of the year, really taking in what’s important – these special, quiet moments with loved ones.
If you’re craving more fun, head on over to the Howelsen Ice Complex. Enjoy anything from ice skating to bumper cars on the ice! Prepare for a day of laughter, and one day you definitely won’t be telling the kids “no more screen time.” There’s so much to do in Steamboat that being bored is just not an option.
You can also attend the festive Torchlight Parade & Fireworks at Steamboat Ski Resort. Watch as the Steamboat SnowSports School puts on a spectacular parade down the slopes, lit only by torches! The event culminates in a dazzling fireworks display.
As the day winds down, downtown lights up. You’ll have your pick of trendy restaurants to nosh on great grub, like Café Diva or The Laundry. Then you and your party can walk down to one of our four micro-breweries to properly ring in the new year, delicious craft beer in hand.
More of a homebody? Staying in for the countdown is a great idea too! You’ll love basking in the glow of the fire while you and your loved ones slowly count down. 3…2…1…happy New Year! Let the beauty of nature surround you, with fresh snow on the ground and moonlight shining through a vast open sky, so you can start off the year with an overwhelming sense of calm and peace.
