Leave your fat boards at home, take your light gear, and have fun. Expect to see lots of people—hikers, dogs, Nordic skiers, a few backcountry skiers, snowshoers. You can chug uphill for a good aerobic workout, then cruise downhill at a relaxed pace, casual enough to hold a conversation with your ski partners.
The history of Emerald Mountain is intimately connected to that of Howelsen Hill, Carl Howelsen, and Steamboat Springs. They combine to form one of the richest skiing heritages anywhere in the United States, just one reason Steamboat has successfully branded itself as “Ski Town USA.”
