The 2018-2019 ski season is here and full of fun

We are having an incredible winter in Steamboat Springs with over 100 inches of snow already this season. As 2018 comes to a close, we are so grateful for the past year and the immense beauty of the town we live in. Heading into 2019 we kick off the New Year, the only way Steamboat knows how… with plenty of can’t miss events that bring the community together and invite us all to enjoy the great outdoors.

Can’t Miss Events:

First Friday Artwalk

January 4th

A favorite Steamboat event, be sure to head downtown for the First Friday Artwalk. Taking place on the first Friday of every month, local restaurants and galleries showcase work from a variety of artists. Each stop offers appetizers, wine, and a chance to talk to featured artists about their work.

Music Fest

January 5th through the 10th

One of the biggest events of the winter season, the Music Fest, brings together some of the best Texas and Americana music at the base of the ski resort. While many events may be sold out there are several downtown venues and other opportunities to watch these musicians showcase their talents.

The 47th Annual Dance Theatre brings together over 100 of Steamboat’s best dancers for a thrilling line up of performances.
