•Autumn is a gorgeous time in the Rockies with breathtaking scenery. Our Aspens tend to 'turn' about the third weekend in September with the shorter days and cooler weather. Although indian summers are frequent we usually have at least one early snow in the beginning of September, but doesn't stick! Elk and deer seasons also start in September and run through November.
•In winter, nearby Steamboat Springs Ski Resort offers some of Colorado's best skiing. All around Hahns Peak and Steamboat Lake you'll find a winter wonderland with over 140 miles of groomed snowmobiling and cross-country skiing trails. This region is one of Colorado's more snowy areas. Through the winter the highs are mostly in the 20's; through the dark hours in the winter temperatures drop to the 0's.
A little history of our village...The original Hahns Peak was founded close to the shores of Steamboat Lake in 1865 during Colorado's gold and silver rush days, and was the original County Seat of Routt County.
Hahns Peak Village today offers visitors a stroll through Colorado's colorful past, and offers residents a peaceful & historic residential life. Be sure to visit the Hahns Peak Historical Museum and original school house! The locals have opted to preserve the original quiet residential character of the town and shy away from the commercial tourism development typical of many old Colorado mountain towns.
The entire area around Hahns Peak and Steamboat Springs is one of the best vacation destinations in Colorado and we invite you to visit.
Look forward to seeing you soon!
