Real-Life Winter Wonderland

Steamboat Springs in the winter is like something out of a dream; a beautiful, white, sparkling, snowy dream. The snow starts to fall around Thanksgiving and by Christmas residents and visitors enjoy feet of snow accumulation. The Yampa Valley is white from horizon to horizon, and on the best days, topped with a clear blue sky and warming rays of sun that make all of the snow in the trees and on the ground sparkle like it’s covered in glitter. Have you ever seen a snowflake sparkle like a rainbow as it gently falls to the ground? You are guaranteed to feel compelled to make at least one authentic snow angel. There’s nothing like 3-5 feet of snow to bring out anyone’s inner child. Snowballs fly, snowmen smile, and Christmas lights twinkle at Bella Vista Estate across the entire Yampa Valley.  Being perched 1,000 feet above the valley floor looking across the horizon blanketed in snow makes you feel like you’re in a giant snow globe!

Family Christmas Ski Vacation

The entire family will never forget the Christmas that you spent on the mountain at Steamboat Resort. This world-class ski resort is known for its champagne powder and contains terrain for every comfort level. Dad and the kids can crush black diamond ski runs together while mom sips a mimosa in the lodge (or vice versa!)  If downhill skiing isn’t your speed, endless opportunities abound throughout the valley for nordic skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, 2 natural hot springs, and more. Guests lodging at Bella Vista Estate can make use of our private shuttle to get to and from the ski resort in less than 10 minutes. Don’t worry about finding parking or schlepping your gear.
