Steamboat Springalicious

Say a happy “hello” to spring in Steamboat with the most exciting - and silly - event all year.

The end of the skiing season is always tinged with sadness, especially when it comes to Steamboat, or “Ski Town, U.S.A.”, where the fading of our favorite champagne powder means saying goodbye to another thrilling season full of great memories. The 2015/2016 El Niño season has gifted us with so much incredible powder (over 20 feet!) that it deserves an enthusiastic farewell – which is where the Steamboat Springalicious celebration comes in.

Instead of being sad that this incredible ski season has come and gone, get excited for springtime in Steamboat, where fun is in endless supply. This year, Steamboat has a sky-high list of events beginning on April 1 that make up Springalicious, including live music with impressive headliners, unique activities filled with laughter, and even some spring skiing to hold you over until next winter. I can think of no better way to spend a long Spring Break! Stay with us in Steamboat for the first week of April and enjoy a week of fun for the whole family.

Schedule of Events

01

April 1: First Friday Artwalk

A free self-guided tour of the area’s galleries and museums. Find this month’s exhibition listings at www.steamboatartcenter.com

April 2: Bud Light Rocks the Boat Free Concert, featuring Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad

With a unique blend of Reggae and traditional folk music, GPGDS is a relaxed jam band reminiscent of The Grateful Dead.

03

April 9: 36th Annual Cardboard Classic

This annual tradition is always a laugh, when participants race down the mountain on cardboard crafts. Followed by another Bud Light Rocks the Boat Free Concert featuring Ozamatli.

04

April 10: Closing Day Celebration & Pond Skim Competition

The perfect hilarious sendoff – competitors ski and ride across an icy pond in hopes of making it to the other side (did I mention that they’ll be decked out in full costume?)

And since the main attraction is the famous slopes of Steamboat, make sure to pick up a Springalicious Pass, which allows you to ride incredible conditions for a great value. Pick 3 days to ski and ride any time between April 1 and April 10 for only $119/person – and hurry, these prices will go up!
