Overview

The Alpine Slide is temporarily closed..... there was a mud slide on the upper part of Howelsen Hill which shifted the lift towers. Until the towers are reattached to the bedrock, it is unsafe to operate the lift. The City is working on fixing the lift - as soon as it is safe to ride, we will re-open. Unfortunately, we do not have a set date as to when that will happen.

We love this Alpine Slide. A little pricey for just a slide. I think the packages for multiple rides should be a better deal. It wasn't worth it for us to spend all that money for a slide. Great time but we would have spent...More

We were here for the triple crown World Series and saw this on the 1st day, at $9 a pop because so many of us rode it was a hoot. The ride isn't that fast for heavy persons as you create extra friction. I tried...More

Decided to give this a try while vacationing in Steamboat. Cost is $12.50 a person, and decreases per ticket with larger groups. They haul you up to the top in a chair lift and hand you the 'sled'. I went with my wife and two...More

If you're looking for a slower (but fun) slide this is for you, it was a bumpy ride with slower/average speed. If you're looking for a fast ride/adventure you may be disappointed. The lines moved very quickly for weekend crowds. We asked our boys (ages...More

My 9 and 10 yet old boys had awesome time. Made 2 runs each. Hubby and I paid to ride up on lift and watch them. The life ride was very enjoyable and relaxing.

This is a fun activity for people with small children but is not for thrill seeking adults. No matter how hard you try you just can't get going fast enough for real excitement
