Winter Day Trip to Hayden

Less than 30 mins west of Steamboat Springs, Hayden welcomes you for the Holidays! Our small town is all about slowing down, so skip the slopes and take a day trip to REAL Colorado. 

Strolling through decorated downtowns, sipping sweet drinks and spending time with friends and family. But if everyone has that same idea and heads to  Steamboat Springs, where can you go to find that quiet mountain retreat? 

Glide Through the Yampa Valley

Hear That? That’s the Solitude of Cross Country Skiing

When you’re less interested in resort crowds, and more interested in winter solace and exercise, hit the nordic ski track! With options that range from 1 mile to 10, you and your family can glide through the beautiful Yampa Valley.

Cozy Comfort Food

We Got You Covered for Comfort Food at the HiWay 40 Lodge & Grill 

Now it’s time to refuel after a day outdoors. That’s where HiWay 40 Lodge & Grill comes in. From burgers to sandwiches, wings and salads, you can fill your belly after your real Colorado day. 

Cheers to Real Colorado 

Stay a while, why dontcha! On your way back to Steamboat, make a stop at Yampa Valley Brewing Company. From Coal-Miner’s Stout, to Valley Girl Blonde, you’re sure to find the perfect treat for your tastebuds. 

Well, what a day it is sure to be! We hope you escape the crowds and join us for a day trip you won’t forget. Check out more winter recreation activities here. See you soon and Happy Holidays!
