COVID-19 & Your Steamboat Vacation


Means collectively deciding to practice social distancing, the best way to keep each other safe. We ask that you help us protect our local Steamboat community by continuing to practice social distancing and by following social distancing protocols including wearing face masks in public places.  We encourage you to take every precaution to keep yourself, family and friends safe during your travels:


Fish Creek Falls, Steamboat Springs, CO


  • Consider isolating for 5 – 10 days prior to your trip to reduce the potential of contracting COVID
  • Consider getting a flu shot 2 or more weeks before you travel – this reduces the risk of flu and confusing symptoms.
  • Consider taking a COVID PCR test 3 – 4 days prior to travel – you will know that at the time of the test that you are COVID free
  • Do not travel if you have any of the COVID symptoms such as recent loss of taste/smell
  • Make sure all members of your party have a few masks to wear around town and on the mountain.


  • Wear an N95 mask on the plane and in a shuttle or taxi
  • Engage with your group and discuss openly about monitoring health symptoms daily throughout your stay
  • Don’t socialize outside of your household group when in resort
  • If anyone becomes symptomatic during the trip get tested immediately – a COVID rapid test will quickly confirm 85% of symptomatic cases.
  • If you test negative but are still symptomatic – get a COVID PCR test which is more accurate and isolate until you have the result (2 – 3 days)
  • If you have a group member who is diagnosed with COVID please quarantine for 10 days to prevent community spread.
