Beginner Ski Trails at Steamboat
Steamboat Lower-Mountain Skiing
Most of the easiest beginner ski terrain at Steamboat is located right around the base of the mountain. The Christie chair lift has a mid-station that will drop skiers off at the top of this area. You can also use the Preview Chairlift if you only want to access the easiest part of the mountain. The gondola and Christie III Chairlift will take you above the headwall and away from this area of the mountain. You can see the base area in the photos below.
Sunshine Peak Beginner Skiing
Beginner skiers will find a small amount of easy beginner ski trails here. Most of the blue (Intermediate) ski runs on this part of the ski mountain are still relatively easy. The photo above shows the decent down the trail; Sunshine Lift Line.
This part of the mountain also contains the Rendezvous Saddle mountain restaurant, a small terrain park for kids, and access to Morningside Park from the top of all of the lifts on this peak.
