Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is a nearly perfect Feast of Tabernacles location. It offers just about everything for everyone! The site provides scenic autumn foliage in the surrounding mountains. Nearly all attendees stay at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel and attend services there, which means more unifying fellowship. The hotel has a variety of room types, including motel rooms, studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums—even penthouses. Parking is free both underground and across the street.
Due to limited three-bedroom condos at the Steamboat Grand, they can be reserved by contacting the festival coordinator through your pastor. For those needing four-bedroom condos, we are listing other facilities that are nearby. Lower cost housing is about a mile and a half away.
Surrounded by great scenery, another benefit to the site is the relatively low elevation of 6,700 feet. Few would experience side effects from this altitude.
Dining opportunities are varied and include a few higher-end restaurants. There is little in the way of well-known chain restaurants. Most shops are downtown, with a few on the hill above the hotel.
Available activities include golfing, mountain biking, hiking, fishing (including guided fly-fishing), hot-air ballooning, kayaking, rock climbing, bowling, ice-skating, miniature golf, ATV riding and horseback riding. The alpine slide and boat rentals are closed after Labor Day.
Some of the other attractions are Old Town Hot Springs, Fish Creek Falls (a short hike), museums, art galleries, three state parks (Stagecoach, Steamboat and Pearl, all with lakes) and 150 mineral springs in the vicinity of the town.
The Steamboat Grand Hotel offers a free shuttle to and from most places in town. The city also offers transportation. Yampa Valley Airport (25 minutes away) is serviced by commercial jets. Rental cars are available. For transportation from Denver International Airport, call Alpine Taxi at (800) 343-7433 or go online at www.alpinetaxi.com.
