Base Area Activities

The base area at the base of Steamboat Resort hosts a multitude of family friendly activities for kids & adults of all ages. Check out the Burgess Creek Beach, take a scenic Gondola ride, and grab a bit to eat at one of the many restaurants. There's so much to do, you'll want to come back over and over again.

PLEASE NOTE: Many base area activities will be closed or relocated for Summer 2022 due to base area construction. For up to date details, check here.


Take a ride up Mt. Werner and enjoy the views that can only be appreciated from Steamboat's new eight-passenger gondola. The Gondola is open daily to foot passengers, weather permitting and is scheduled to open June 30th, 2022. Make sure to hike around when you get up top or enjoy a cold beverage from the sundeck at the top of the Gondola building.


Need to cool off on a hot Steamboat summer day? Take the entire family up the the Burgess Creek Beach at the base of the ski area. Burgess Creek runs down from the mountain and into the base area offering a great cool off spot. Grab a red chair on the sandy beach and watch the kids play amongst the rocks and wading pools. Make sure to pack a picnic for lunch or grab a snack & drink from the Taco Beast. And don’t forget the sand toys!
