This Fresh Place Friday brings us to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Steamboat Springs had its beginnings as a summertime resort in the 1900’s. The town originally got its name from 1860’s French fur trappers who thought the hot springs near the Yampa River sounded like a steamboat. Speaking of natural hot springs, did you know there are over 150 different hot springs in the Steamboat Springs area? Over time Steamboat Springs became more known for its winter activities and is home to the oldest ski resort in continual use in Colorado (Howelsen Hill) which opened in 1915. In fact, the town has been home to more U.S. winter Olympic athletes since 1932 than any other U.S. town.
If you are looking to do more than ski or snowboard, the Steamboat Springs area has much to offer. From championship golfing to horseback riding in the summer and Strawberry Hot Springs relaxing to ice climbing in the winter – there is so much to do in Steamboat Springs. You can even take helicopter sightseeing rides and hot air balloon trips in the summer months.
