The Steamboat ski resort opens for skiing tomorrow, and with it comes the unveiling of One Steamboat Place. One Steamboat Place is Steamboat’s newest development located at the heart of the mountain base.
Much anticipation has been looming for the grand opening of the newest addition toSteamboat Springs real estate offerings. After 2 years of construction, the project is now prepared to close on its first 100 sales. The official opening for overnight guests will happen January 9th, but the general public will get a first glimpse of the plaza area tomorrow.
Giving Gondola Square an entirely new look, gone are the stairs to a lower level parking lot and Kids Vacation Center. This gives the mountain base a completely new entrance point with pavers and a heated walkway. The other exciting enhancement to the base area is the Wildhorse Gondola that transports guests from the Wildhorse development to the plaza of One Steamboat Place. This adds a completely new transportation method for people looking to access Gondola Square from Wildhorse Meadows. The new Wildhorse Gondola is expected to be fully operational in February.
One Steamboat Place has also announced some of its retail tenants who will be opening their doors this winter. Amongst the exciting new businesses is Fleischer Sport, a new ski shop. Owned and operated by Chad Fleischer, an Olympic downhiller, the store can be found at the commercial space just steps from the gondola unloading area. Other retail neighbors in the new project include the new Steamboat Ski & Snowboard School ticket office, Surefoot ski boot & fitting shop and a new restaurant, Truffle Pig, opening in July.
