October Events Bring the Community Together



As we head into fall, Steamboat focuses on supporting our community and bringing people together

After a warm and wonderful summer, the temperature is starting to cool in the Yampa Valley and there’s a feeling of fall in the air. Though summer may be coming to an end, the events in Steamboat certainly are not.  Now is the perfect time to enjoy Steamboat and soak in the last bit of warmth before winter is upon us. Take a stroll along the core trail while the leaves fall around you or enjoy a cruise down one of our many trails cascaded with flashes of reds and gold. Regardless of your interests, you are sure to find something to enjoy in Steamboat during this spectacular time of year.

True to Steamboat’s sense of community and love of the great outdoors, many of October’s events involve running, biking, and giving back to the community.
