Maps & Directions

Steamboat Mountain School is located approximately 5 miles outside of Steamboat Springs, in the mountains of Northwest Colorado. The best way to get to Steamboat Mountain School is through either flying into Denver International (DEN), 185 miles from the school, or Yampa Valley Regional Airport (HDN) in Hayden, just 25 minutes from Steamboat.  Service in Hayden increases during the ski season, with non-stops from Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Newark, and Seattle; other major hubs are just one stop away.
Rental cars are available at each of these airports, and Alpine Taxi provides comfortable and convenient shuttle service. Please note that directions from mapping services are not always reliable.
