Full Steamboat Ahead!
Steamboat Ski Resort has announced a huge change breaking ground in April 2021!
Steamboat has decided to embark on a significant change to Gondola Square. The redeveloped plaza will create a world-class guest experience helping to elevate Steamboat Resort’s industry excellence. Plans have been submitted to the City of Steamboat Springs to transform Gondola Square into a multi-use, amenity-rich plaza creating an easy-to-navigate resort core complete with additional dining, shopping, and entertainment.
The redesign includes plans to relocate the gondola to a nearby on-snow location. In place of the gondola building, the plans include a mix of retail space, new restaurants, an ice rink, communal gather spaces, fire pits, and much more. This will create a reimagened arrival expereience that eliminates cumbersome levels and stairs. These enhancements are anticipated to occur over the next three years.
“The reimagined plaza, in combination with exciting on-mountain projects, solves long-overdue needs for Steamboat’s base area,” said Rob Perlman, president and COO for Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. “We are thrilled that our parent company, Alterra Mountain Company, recognizes the importance of investing in, and reimagining, the future of Steamboat Ski Resort and supports this incredible multi-year investment. This is the biggest proposed project since the resort first opened in 1963, and it will benefit visitors and the entire Yampa Valley community, which have been so supportive of the resort through the years.”
We are very excited to see how these changes shape Steamboat’s future.
