Steamboat Springs is a wonderful area to enjoy the freezing winter the way you should. We used our limited time there wisely and enjoyed the long trails for skiing, while feeding the birds with seeds and nuts whenever we encountered them. The Strawberry Park Natural Hot Spring in Steamboat is a must see. They have pools in different temperatures that you can choose from, and you can enjoy Colorado's hot springs natural mineral pools to help with body aches. We took the 3 hours tour that included over one hour in the pools, and it was wonderful. It was about $45 per adults and was well worth it.
