Here are all the details you need to know about the latest Gravity Haus location.
The Gravity Haus family is growing!
Our newest outpost in gorgeous Steamboat Springs will rebrand the former Ptarmigan Inn as a new ski-in, ski-out Gravity Haus property featuring 75 guest rooms, an outdoor pool and hot tub, a Haus Quiver location, a year-round outdoor deck with a fire pit facing the ski slopes and much more.
“You can literally walk out the back door, click into your bindings, and ski 50 yards to the base of the Steamboat gondola,” says Vice President of Operations Katie Jacquemin.
The plan is to rebrand as Gravity Haus and treat the restaurant and bar area to a full renovation with revamped Colorado fresh menus by the end of 2022. The Ptarmigan Inn underwent room renovations in 2019 and the plush suites will carry all of the treasured Gravity Haus amenities and extras.
Gravity Haus Steamboat will serve as a coveted hotel, mountain office, family outpost and healthy refuel and recover spot. “We’re built around mountain living, bringing communities together and having a gathering place where we can work, play and meet for meals,” says Jacquemin. “This is where you can come and work, leave your skis, and then get out for lunch break runs.”

Steamboat Ski Resort is Expanding
The ranching town turned ski town is enjoying major capital enhancements over the next two years. Here’s what Alterra Mountain Company has planned:
A New Base Area. Steamboat Square is getting escalators (read: no more stair maze in ski boots!), an après ski plaza, new restaurants and bars, a ski beach, an ice rink and a stage for live music.
Happy Camp. New last season, Steamboat’s Happy Camp is a one-stop-shop for families with small children. Little skiers ages 1 to 4 enjoy lift access, lunch, lesson instruction and equipment rentals.
A Top-to-Bottom Gondola. The new Wild Blue Gondola arrives for Winter 2022/23 as the longest gondola in North America and the fastest 10-person gondola in the country. The state-of-the-art gondola will feed skiers/riders through a newly created mid-station adjacent to Bashor bowl with the final destination at the top of Sunshine Peak.
More Lifts, More Terrain. New lifts and 650 new acres of terrain will make Steamboat the second largest ski resort in Colorado. Greenhorn Ranch is a new dedicated learning area for beginners and Pioneer Ridge will serve up 650 acres of new expert terrain.
Steamboat Springs: A Four-Season Gravity Haus Destination
Champagne Powder to quaking aspens to soothing hot springs — there’s always something awesome to do in Steamboat.
Here’s what we’re most looking forward to:
All that fluffy Champagne Powder. It’s trademarked here. Steamboat is home to the softest sparkling Champagne Powder in Colorado. The resort’s 17 lifts access 170 trails and we can’t wait to ski them all.
Snowshoe tours. Catch free 90-minute snowshoe tours departing at 1 p.m. from Steamboat Sports at Gondola Square all winter.
Outlaw Mountain Coaster. The longest coaster in North America rips year-round with dips, waves, turns and 360-degree circles.
The fabulous festivals. Winter Wondergrass, Steamboat Light the Night, Winter Carnival, the Bud Light Cowboy Downhill — Steamboat throws ski town parties like no other.
Hot springs heaven. After a big pow day or challenging hike, you’ll find us recouping in the woods at Strawberry Hot Springs. The therapeutic soaking pools range from 101° to 105° (clothing optional after dark).
Howelsen Hill. Colorado’s oldest continuously operated ski area has produced nearly 100 winter Olympians. We plan on checking out the ski jumping complex and the Nordic trails for cross-country skiing and fat biking.
Historic downtown. Nabbing new cowboy boots and gifts for friends and family while popping into the hottest bars and restaurants along Lincoln and Yampa streets is a must.
The hiking, biking and tubing. A trip up iconic Rabbit Ears Pass for fall hiking among the legendary aspen trees is classic Colorado. Take in the cascades along the Fish Creek Falls Trail and views from the top on Grouse Ridge. Mountain bike the Panorama trail and the Steamboat Mountain Bike Park trails. When summer heats up, take to the river and tube the Yampa for a floating party through town.
