If you’re not too busy shopping the Black Friday sales in preparation for the holidays, head to Howelsen Ice Arena where you can skate for free from 2:00 – 3:45 pm.
Once you’re fueled up, you can head to the Courthouse lawn for the annual tree lighting at 6 pm (featuring free cookies and hot chocolate too!). Now we’re in full-on holiday mode.

It’s small business Saturday and there is no better place to be than Steamboat where Lincoln Avenue and beyond has an amazing array of local shops and small businesses to choose from. Check out Chrysalis for trendy women’s clothing, F.M. Light & Son’s for all things Western, and of course, don’t forget the local’s favorite, Ohana, for handmade gifts and screen-printed tee’s.
Bored of leftovers? Luckily Steamboat has a wide array of cuisines to choose from – head to Fiesta Jalisco for margs and tacos, O’Neil’s Tavern for classic Irish pub food or How Ya Doin Pizza for a big old calzone.
