A Rich Tapestry of History and Culture

Hundred of years before the first pioneers arrived in Steamboat Springs, the Yampa Valley was the summer hunting grounds for indigenous people. The Yampatika Ute, Ute Indians, and Arapaho tribes made incredible contributions towards the flourishing ecology of the area, which was officially recognised by the City Council in 2020. Not only this, but Steamboat’s indigenous history is packed with intriguing folklore that adds to the charm and historical significance of the town.

In the early 1800s, French fur trappers named this charming area on the mountain ‘Steamboat Springs’ as they mistakenly thought they’d heard the chugging sound of a Steamboat’s engine. The origin of this sound is still a mystery, although many believe it was a naturally occurring sound from one of the many nearby hot springs.

In 1874, James Crawford ventured into the Yampa Valley seeking a homestead site. By 1902 this area became a town with 3 hotels, 3 livery stables, 3 banks, 4 general stores, 2 meat markets, and a variety of other businesses and ranches. The history of skiing in Steamboat Springs is just as old as ranching, as skis were an essential method of transportation for the pioneers during Colorado’s long winters. In the early 1910s, skiing became a more formalized sport in the town and attracted tourists from all over the country.

Steamboat’s cowboy-skier culture can be traced back to 1974 when professional rodeo cowboy Larry Mahan teamed up with the famous skier Billy Kidd, to bring ProRodeo stars from the Denver Stock Show to Steamboat Springs for a snow-sports event like no other – the Cowboy Downhill. This annual event is continued to this day, and highlights just how important cowboy skiers are to the town’s history.


Steamboat Resort’s Evolution

In 2021, Steamboat Ski Resort entered into a multi-million dollar base area redevelopment and on-mountain improvement project called ‘Full Steam Ahead’. This project embraces all the traditional features that have made Steamboat such a beloved vacation spot for decades, whilst revamping the experience for guests and locals alike.

Steamboat’s rejuvenation project will be remembered as a cornerstone moment in Steamboat’s history. With upgraded infrastructure and remarkable new amenities, this expansion will see Steamboat becoming the second largest ski resort in Colorado.

With physical and emotional ties to the city, the Sherman family wanted to play a significant role in this transformation, and contribute to the incredible evolution of Steamboat Springs. As a result, The Astrid was born.
