Best Tree Skiing at Steamboat
Where can you find the best tree skiing at Steamboat? You can see one of the best areas for this in the photo below. This tree skiing zone is on Sunshine Peak.

You can find some of the steepest tree skiing areas at Steamboat in the Christmas Bowl. You’ll find a few chutes that are equally challenging to the north-east of the Christmas Bowl (Called East Face, North St. Pat’s ski trails). You will need to make a quick and easy hike in order to access this terrain; this makes this a great place to ski in the trees on a powder day.

Tree Skiing for Beginners
If you are a beginner-intermediate skier, you might enjoy skiing the trees in the Morningside Park area. The pitch here is not too steep, and there are plenty of short/easy runs that you can take through the woods here.
