Traveling to Steamboat Springs, Colorado is a great trip for families or for friends. In the summer it provides a great escape from the heat that much of the country has to endure. The high altitude (6,732 ft) though can be problematic. Many people may have trouble sleeping and/or have shortness of breath. You can fly right into Hayden Airport which is about a 30 minute drive from Steamboats. Or some people drive in from Denver. You might even consider renting a place in Denver for a night to enjoy the Mile High City before you venture here.However if that doesn't apply to you, then you get to enjoy nights that drop into the 40's and days that experience temps in the 80's. Along with the low humidity levels, travelers will want to spend the majority of their time outdoors.
