A year ago the popular activity of tubing on the Yampa River in the Steamboat Springs area wasn’t an option.
Steamboat Springs is the ideal summer location to rejuvenate the soul. Whether you’re looking for biking and hiking or simply relaxing in the hot springs, this is the time of year this city blossoms. With only a tank of gas and a short 3.5-hour drive, this quaint town has a calendar filled with activities to help you recover from the work week.
It’s a well known summertime tradition, but starting Wednesday — the first day of summer — the Yampa River through Steamboat Springs is closed to tubing and rafting.
The Yampa River is finally expected to officially open for tubing this year.
