Ski season has come to a close, and the warmer weather is finally upon us. 'Mud Season' in Steamboat is secretly a local's favorite time of year. Town is quiet and there is a pure joy about the community as everyone starts spending more time outdoors, basking in the warmth of spring, and enjoying time with neighbors and friends not always seen while we're cooped up indoors during the long winters. 

One of the best aspects of spring in Steamboat are the great deals and sales at businesses all around town. Whether you're looking to enjoy a nice dinner out or looking for discounted clothing and gear, this is the best time to keep an eye out for deals. Restaurants like Table 79 and Aurum are offering 50% off entree programs, or check out Besame, which has specials nearly every night of the week including Taco Tuesday and All Night Happy Hour Wednesday. With more people spending time outside while downtown, sidewalk sales are abundant. Snag winter gear at great discounted prices, or look to stock up on summer items for the upcoming season. 

This time of year is also ideal for spending time soaking at Old Town Hot Springs or Strawberry Park Hot Springs. With thinner crowds, one can really enjoy and relax after a long day of activities. 

Spring is a great time to get geared up for the upcoming summer activities. Whether it's checking out a spin class to get in shape for biking, gathering a group for a tennis match at the Tennis Bubble, or on a nice day, taking a run along the Core Trail to prep for summer races, mud season is a great time to get out there and get moving.
