Many people believe Colorado is a great destination, but only during one season a year. That season could be summer or winter, depending on the person, but many people rarely think of visiting Colorado ranch property during the “opposite” time of year.

This is a real shame, because Steamboat Springs real estate has many wonderful things to do on a vacation any time of the year.

In the winter, Steamboat Springs offers people the chance to ski in the resort’s celebrated snow (in fact, it’s so well-known that the Steamboat Springs Chamber and Resort Association, Inc. has registered it as Champagne Powder®). Whether you visit for a family vacation or for a romantic getaway with the love of your life, this Colorado ranch property offers you the chance to try alpine and Nordic skiing, ride on a snowmobile, hike on snowshoes or try your luck at snowboarding. You can even go dog sledding, ice skating and, for the true fishing aficionado, ice fishing. Why not take a romantic sleigh ride dinner, too!

As for summer, you and your party can fly over the springs in a hot air balloon, tube along the Yampa River, or ride a gondola up to the top of the 10,565-foot Mt. Werner. Why not take in the gorgeous Colorado scenery from the back of a horse? If you’ve daredevils in your group, try the Howler Alpine Slide’s 2,400 foot descent.

There’s even more to do in summer: bicycling, camping, bowling, trout fishing, golf, ATV riding, sightseeing by helicopter, hunting, hot air ballooning, taking a dip in a hot springs, rafting down a river, going on a cattle drive, playing tennis and, of course, hiking among the beautiful forests of the Rocky Mountains’ Park Range (elevation approximately 12,000 feet).

In fact, there’s so much to do within the Steamboat Springs region, you should come for the winter and stay for the summer.
