Kid friendly options are little golden nuggets for any parent. Whether you live here in Steamboat or are visiting, finding spots that appease both kids and parents alike is a survival must. Luckily, being a mom of two little rascals, I have been busy scoping out some fabulous places.

Skiing!
Sure, this is an obvious activity here in Ski Town USA but often getting kids out on the hill can seem like a daunting and somewhat impossible task. Whether you are an avid skier yourself and want to expose your kids to the slopes or a newbie, Steamboat has options. If you are purchasing lift tickets, Kids can ski free . If you are looking for some experts to teach your kids Steamboat offers kids’ programs with the Kid’s Vacation Center and the Snow Sports Program.

Outlaw Mountain Coaster
What’s better than a mountain coaster? A mountain coaster on the snow. Steamboat has the longest mountain coaster in North America. The Outlaw brings smiles all around!

Western BBQ
