Good Walks Unspoiled…

A latticework of trails of varying difficulty make Steamboat a hiker’s paradise. Try Fish Creek Falls, a 7.6-mile hike straight from town that rewards you with views of 280-foot waterfalls along the way. Another heart-racing option is Thunderhead, which climbs nearly four miles to the top of the gondola. simplysteamboat.com

A FUNGIBLE FEAST

Catamount Ranch Golf Club may be private, but its restaurant, The Periodic Table, isn’t. It changes culinary themes every summer and winter, spanning the globe. The current cuisine theme? European Riviera. periodicsteamboat.com

MAKE SOME HAY

Set on 233 acres in the lush Yampa Valley, Haymaker Golf Course opened in 1997 and remains one of the state’s best public courses. This challenging 7,308-yard Keith Foster layout features wide fairways, native grasses, wetlands, rock walls, deep bunkers, fiddly greens and stunning views of Mount Werner and the Flat Top Range. You’ll spot elk, eagles and blue herons, but no on-course real estate. haymakergolf.com

ROLLING THE STONE

Opened in 1974 as the Sheraton Steamboat Golf Club, Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club treats golfers to views of the Yampa Valley and Flat Tops Wilderness and challenges them with slick greens that break away from Mount Werner. Fish Creek snakes through seven holes, while lakes appear on two others. Mature pines and aspens frame every fairway on this Troon Golf- managed course. rollingstoneranchgolf.com

SURF’S UP!

If you think boarders only come to Steamboat in the winter, think again. Devoted to introducing and advancing the sport of wake surfing, WAKE uses the most advanced boat technology to create a man-made wave large enough to catch and ride. WAKE operates out of Stagecoach Reservoir Marina and schedules two-hour sessions for all levels of riders. The company also welcomes wakeboarders and wake skaters. Hang ten 20 minutes from downtown Steamboat, eh brah! wakews.com
