Revel in après ski with the under-age set. It’s the kids’ night out.

Water Slide
Old Town Hot Springs has two exhilarating 230-foot water slides designed for bathing suit clad adventurers to speed down the loops before splash-down. It’s fun for kids of all ages (or for tired parents who want to sit in the nearby soaking pool and watch the excitement). Slides are open from 4-8 p.m. daily in the winter and a bracelet for unlimited rides costs $6.

Western BBQ
Feed your inner cowboy: Barbecue buffet. Big cowboy hats. Live music. Dancing. Maybe even the Hokey Pokey. It’s a big night at the top of the gondola, and it’s a traditional favorite that lures families back year after year for its all-inclusive home-style food and lively Western entertainment.

Dessert First
Tempt your sweet-tooth. Have an old-fashioned soda fountain treat at Lyon’s Corner Drug and Soda Fountain. Indulge in a scoop of Italy’s decadent frozen specialty at Ciao Gelato. Devour a monster sundae at Johnny B. Good’s diner. Or venture down the street to Mahogany Ridge Brewery and Grill, where there brew beer for mom and dad and root beer for the kids. Between the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Fuzziwig’s, the candy selection downtown Steamboat rivals Willy Wonka’s own factory.
