Driving from Denver International Airport
The opportunity to drive to Steamboat Springs may be a high point of your Colorado adventure. You’ll see wildlife, blue skies, beautiful mountain scenery and wide open ranch lands. It is an easy drive from Denver, but it will take you worlds away! Steamboat is just 169 miles from Denver International Airport (DIA), or a pleasant 3.5 hour drive. From Denver, head west on I-70 through the Eisenhower Tunnel. En route, you’ll pass historic Georgetown, with its numerous antique shops and a viewing area of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. On the western side of the Eisenhower Tower, exit on Colorado 9 at Silverthorn. Here you’ll find factory outlet shops from Liz Claiborne to Levi! From Silverthorn, head north on Colorado 9 along the Blue River, 40 minutes to
Kremmling, the hunting capital of Northwest Colorado. Turn left onto US Highway 40 toward Steamboat, just 53 miles west. En route, you’ll pass through the Rockies’ high plains and grazing lands before you begin a gradual ascent to the famed Rabbit Ears Pass. Be sure to look for the “Ears” rock formation. Upon decending the pass, you’ll see Lake Catamount on your left, next to the popular Stagecoach Resevoir State Park. You’ll also be able to view the Flat Tops Wilderness Area and part of the Gore Range, that surrounds Vail, in the distance. The Yampa Valley will unfold before you, and as the legend goes, you will then be captivated and always want to return! The highway leads right to the Mt. Werner exit, which takes you to the Sheraton Steamboat Resort. Follow Mt. Werner Road north to Mt. Werner Circle; look for the Sheraton Steamboat Resort.

Driving from Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Hayden
Yampa Valley Regional Airport (HDN) in Hayden is located 22 miles west of Steamboat on US Highway 40. Driving to Steamboat, follow US Highway 40 east to the Mt. Werner exit, turn north on Mt. Werner Road to Mt. Werner Circle and the Sheraton Steamboat Resort.

Ground Transportation
Another option from either Yampa Valley Regional Airport (HDN) in Hayden or Denver International Airport (DIA) is to book a shuttle.
