This is a wonderful property. In the morning, you can put your boots on in the boot room (where they have been stored overnight on drying shelves!) Then take the private gondola that is located on the property to whisk you to the main base.After skiing, soak in one of the three hot tubs. There is also a heated outdoor pool, and a nice gym if skiing wasn't enough exercise for you. A car is not needed. There is a shuttle to take you anywhere you'd like to go nearby or into town (only about a 10 min. drive.)
Supermarket is nearby. There are even some BBQ's on the property if you want to grill your dinner. All the furnishings and finishes are of the highest quality. Marble and granite throughout, double sinks in bathroom, wood floors, etc. Staff is professional, courteous and very helpful. If we return to Steamboat, we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view.

We just got back from staying and Skiing a week at Trailhead Lodge or Some call it WildHorse Meadows. The property is great! The property is new and neatly furnished. The resort has a private Gondola that takes you right to the base of the Steamboat Ski Facility. The rooms are clean, the amenities (Outdoor Hot tubs, Game room, Exercise room, Pool etc) are great! The staff (especially Kat, Cerison, Todd and Mike) were friendly and very informative. Trailhead has a private shuttle service to take you into town to shop, dine or for sightseeing... The Facility is worth going to. We are defiantly going to return...:) A++++++

Room Tip: The 1 bedroom with Den has lots of space with twin Queen beds..(Fold out in Den)

My teenage daughter and I enjoyed Trailhead Lodge over a long weekend. Very well appointed rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the boot room and ski storage. Pool and hot tubs were just right. The gondola is a fun way to get to and from the base. Shuttle drivers quickly got us around since we had no car. Would stay again!

When your wife's first word upon entering the room is "wow" you know you have chosen well. Modern, nice, clean, new units. Great location. Private gondola to the base area is uber convenient. Staff was great with shuttle service when and where you wanted to go. Will definitely stay here again on the next trip to Steamboat.

This lodge is a gem!! This was our third ski trip to Steamboat and the Trailhead Lodge is by far the best place we have stayed. The staff is very helpful and extremely friendly. Our studio condo was just the right size for my husband and I. Having a stacked washer and dryer in the condo was the best. We could have packed half of what we did. The Lodge does provide a small box of detergent, but I brought my own "all in one sheets" to be on the safe side. Trailhead Lodge is not within walking distance to anything, but no worries, the very prompt on-call shuttle will take you to wherever you want to go. A couple of our favorite amenities were the grotto style hot tubs and the boot dryer. Granted, this place is a little pricier than other places you can stay, but remember, you get what you pay for. I can guarantee that when we return to Steamboat we will stay at the Trailhead Lodge again.
Food recommendations: Ski down to the Slopeside Grill for lunch. It's better and cheaper than anything on the mountain. Head to Carl's Tavern for dinner. This place is fairly new and fantastic!!

I had read tons of reviews (not just on Trailhead) and wanted a relaxing, quiet, romantic week in Steamboat. We were looking for a hotel/condo with an outside hot-tub, quiet/cozy furnishings w/ fireplace, not too expensive, shuttle service, within 5 to 10 mins to good local dining, and if possible, ski-in/ski-out. Lot to ask out of a resort right? Trailhead met all of these.

Trailhead is located just outside the hussle and bussle of the bottom of the mountain, but only 5-10 mins away from downtown shopping and dining. Our studio w/kitchenette was perfect and nicely furnished (hardwoods, granite countertops, garden tub and lots of other amenities). Each of the units are decorated differently as each has its own owners who have bought into the complex. We woke up to a beautiful mountain view each morning. Also realize you are not staying in a “hotel” but a condo complex. Housekeeping isn’t coming by to clean your room everyday and turn down the bed each night (which we knew coming in and didn’t expect otherwise). But should you need fresh towels or anything else until housekeeping shows up (every 2 days), the staff is very compliant. If I had to nit-pick about anything, it would be that the bathroom and shower didn’t have a soap dish (and that’s digging).

Each time we returned to the condo from snowboarding, dining, shopping, hot-tubing; we were always greeted kindly by the front desk attendant. Every staff member went out of their way to ensure your stay had no complications. The free shuttle service is also very convenient. I don't think we had to wait more than 5 mins anywhere within the Steamboat/Steamboat Springs area for a shuttle. And the drivers were top notch; all locals and all having very good recommendations. They even took us to the local supermarket to buy groceries and beer our first day (recommend you don't by beer from Safeway and buy it from the nearby liquor store as the alcohol content is lower at the markets, another tip). Just take a GoApine shuttle from the airport and don't rent a car; you won’t need one.

Despite the fact Trailhead is not quite "at" the slopes (maybe 400 yards), the private gondola takes you right to the lift ticket booth and main Steamboat Gondola. It was ideal. You were greeted every time you got on by one of the attendants. They have overnight (secure) boot and ski/snowboard storage which is very useful.

Bottom line, when we do return to Steamboat, we will definitely be staying at Trailhead Lodge again.

Recommendations: Slopeside (great pizza and calzones), Ore House (great steaks), Cantina (awesome margaritas and fajitas), Creekside (rated #1 breakfast restaurant and we can attest).
