Grand catering off-site events

The Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel and Conference Center is now arranging and catering off-site events on the destination's famous mountain.

The hotel handles all arrangements, from transportation to creating specially tailored menus. And the cost of the off-site event is simply included on the hotel bill.

Planners can choose from a variety of venues. In the warmer months, groups can enjoy everything from picnics in the woods to a sit-down banquet on one of the wooden decks atop the mountain. In the winter months, as well as rest of the year, planners can opt for the mountain restaurants in lodge settings.

Attendees get to the venues by taking a beautifully scenic ride up the mountain on the gondola.

In the winter, groups can also take a sleigh ride from the gondola to Ragnar's.
