When planning a destination wedding, it’s important that the accommodations offer the comfort of home and access to activity. Steamboat Ski Resort offers the best of both! Coordinate for your guests and wedding party to stay at Steamboat Grand. With incredible amenities such as concierge services, a pool and health club and cozy rooms with incredible views you can’t go wrong with your room choice. However, we recommend booking one of the Penthouses for your bridal party to get ready in. These are spacious, offer all the amenities needed and, of course, come with spectacular views!

Activities for Guests

Whether you’re hosting a wedding weekend in the spring, summer, fall or winter, Steamboat is a mountain town with endless activities for you and your guests no matter their interests. From skiing and snowshoeing to soaking at the hot springs in the winter time to mountain biking and hiking on warm weather days. Let your guests explore the town on their own or plan group activities with the help of one of our wedding specialists.

Steamboat makes finding things to do easy! Simply sort by activity, area and season to find something that suits your interests. No matter the season though, if the Gondola is up and running, take a ride to get a glimpse of the best views in town. Below are a few more of our favorite activities by season:

Summer: Golfing, Fly Fishing, Horseback Riding, Hiking

Winter: Snowmobile Tours, Night Skiing, Snowshoeing, Sleigh Rides

Pro tip: List activities with links on your wedding website for guests to easily find things to do! You can even create a sample itinerary for them and place it in their welcome bag.
