Racing: Steamboat is home to about 70 Olympians, so it’s a natural for racing and competition programs. The resort has one of the largest race facilities in the world with NASTAR racing open to the public from 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday, from early December through the end of March in the Bashor Race Arena. Daily passes are $12.
Steamboat also has the Billy Kidd Performance Center which offers one-, two- and three-day camps on specific dates for adults who are at least of intermediate ability. The camps refine technique in the bumps, through race gates and on tough terrain.
