Steamboat-Ski Town, U.S.A.® is scheduled to open Wednesday, November 26th and Mother Nature and Old Man Winter have joined forces once again! The snow has been falling in Steamboat Springs for days now with nearly a foot of snow in the past 48-hours! Steamboat is rolling out a red carpet for visitors unlike any other--FREE lift tickets from Opening Day through Christmas Day.

"Steamboat is world-renowned for its western hospitality and kicking off the 2008/2009 season with free skiing is the perfect way to say ‘thanks and welcome back' to our friends who ski and ride at Steamboat," said Rob Perlman, vice president of sales & marketing for Steamboat. "This season more than ever, people are looking for great values and Steamboat has stepped up in an unbelievable way with free lift tickets. Nothing puts a bigger smile or rejuvenates people faster than spending quality time with family and friends in Steamboat, the quintessential ski community known simply as Ski Town U.S.A."

Steamboat will provide FREE lift tickets when powderhounds book a minimum 3 nights lodging between Opening Day, Wednesday, November 26th and Thursday, December 25th through Steamboat Central Reservations®. Local experts are available seven days a week to assist guests in planning and building a customized Ski Free at Steamboat* lodging package that is only available for a limited time.

"It's no secret prudent travelers are looking for exceptional vacation values right now and we have worked closely with our Steamboat lodging partners and the community to offer this incredible early season package," continued Perlman. "Skiers and riders would be hard pressed to find a better deal than the Ski Free at Steamboat* lodging package."
Last season was one for the record books, posting a record Champagne Powder snow season including more than 40 feet of the light fluffy stuff. As widely known, history has a way of repeating itself in Steamboat, so there's no better time to make sure you're in shape, your gear is tuned up and you've reserved your Ski Free at Steamboat lodging package including FREE lift tickets by Opening Day.

"With so much going on in the world today, there's never been a more important time to reconnect and renew what's most essential in life-spending quality time and making lasting memories with friends and family and there isn't a better place than Steamboat."

The Ski Free at Steamboat lodging package*, an unbeatable early season value, simply requires a $50 refundable deposit; must be purchased by the resort's scheduled opening day, November 26th; and travel completed by December 25th.

Year after year, Steamboat continues to be recognized as one of the best ski resorts on the continent. This year, the resort was ranked as one of the Top 10 Resorts in North America by SKI Magazine, Skiing Magazine and Outside Magazine. Plus, resort accolades continue with SKI's #1 Family Resort in the West and #1 Place for Tree Skiing as well as Top 5 for Powder and Top 10 for Après Scene by Skiing Magazine.

The accolades are bolstered by more than $27 million in on-mountain improvements that Steamboat has invested over the past three years. From new lifts to redesigned terrain to additional snowmaking and parking, Steamboat continues to get better every season. With six peaks, nearly 3,000 acres of terrain, abundant Champagne Powder snow, 70-year Olympic heritage, and family programs rated best in the industry, Steamboat is worth taking the road less traveled to feel like you're a world away.
