i don't think there is such a thing in steamboat. unless you know someone who works for the mountain that would give you one of their precious few comp passes, you are probably out of luck. the best discount is to buy a multi day lift ticket. the more days you buy, the cheaper each day is. they used to have the steamboat card program, which was a pretty good discount, but i think the stopped the program a couple years ago. the mountain is great if you want to ski trees. you can ski almost any trees on the mountain. lots of well spaced trees. some are tighter than others, but most are great.

Check out Strawberry Hill (or something like that) hot springs. I don't recall the fee exactly, but I don't remember cringing like paying to ski. It is a bit out of town, but definitely worth it.

The only discount tickets available are through lodging/ski combo packages, call the Sheraton and see if this was an option that was available when you booked your room.

In my experience, Strawberry Park is not your relaxed peaceful hotspring, rather a spring break type evironment with a bunch of kids smokin' drinkin' n carryin' on. Not that this is a bad thing; I just wish I discovered it when I was at an age to enjoy it like that.

For peaceful hotsprings, try hot sulfer on the way to 'boat.

Strawberry was pretty chill when I was there. Nothing out of hand or even anything happening to disturb anyone. Guess it just depends on when you're there. One of my favorite hotsprings though, mainly because of the atmosphere/scenery.

It is very pretty. I've been there twice: once during March (spring break time?) on a Monday at around 8PM and in December on a Saturday at around 7PM. I bet at sunrise it would be perfect!

Back in the mid 70's when I lived in the 'Boat, we use to x-country ski into Strawberry Park, as that was the only way to get there in the winter. Just throw off your clothes on a rock, grab a beer and whatever and kick back for a nice soak. Usually only a hand full of people were there. Haven't been there since.
Back then, a season ski pass was something like $175.00, have no idea what it is these days.
