Steamboat Springs is located in northwest Colorado in the Rocky Mountains and is surrounded by forest and wilderness areas. The Steamboat Grand Resort is situated at the base of the ski area at a comfortable elevation of 6900 feet above sea level.

The Yampa River flows through downtown Steamboat Springs and eventually meets the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument. Three Colorado state parks, hot springs, lakes, rivers, and trail systems cater to a plethora of outdoor activities. Summer activities in the area include hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, camping and canoeing.  For attendees that prefer not to engage in outdoor activities, the resort offers an afternoon shuttle to downtown Steamboat Springs. The downtown area has art galleries, western outfitters, outdoor retailers and gift shops. For more information on activities and attractions in Steamboat Springs click here. 

The average summer temperature in Colorado is 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit (21-26 degrees Centigrade) although the temperatures can drop into the 50's in the evening. Casual clothing is suggested. Visitors to Steamboat Springs may need some extra time to acclimate to the higher altitude.   Be sure to drink plenty of water, use sunscreen, and start off with lighter activities and gradually build up to more strenuous activities. 

The Steamboat Grand is a luxury ski resort for most of the year.  During the summer months, guests of the resort can enjoy the onsite amenities and the beautiful views of the surrounding area.  Guest rooms have either one or two beds, and some single rooms offer kitchenettes.  All rooms have a private bath, phone with voicemail, 32” flat screen TV and DVD player, complimentary wireless internet, humidifier, air conditioning, in-room safe, coffee maker, hair dryer, ironing board and iron.  Onsite amenities include a spa, fitness center and outdoor pool. 

The single or double occupancy registration fee covers 5 nights of lodging (Sunday through Thursday night, with checkout Friday morning).  If you plan to arrive early or stay beyond the official conference dates, you must make your own reservations for the extra nights by contacting the resort directly at 970-871-5050. Please note, the resort is very busy on weekends. If you wish to extend your stay, please book in advance. The rate is at the discretion of the resort, but do let them know you are part of a FASEB conference for any available discount. You will be responsible for the cost of any additional room nights as well as any incidental charges (i.e. in-room movies, room service, parking, etc.). A credit card will be required upon check-in for incidental expenses.

Child and Family Care Resources

FASEB provides detailed information for each conference site on the Science Research Conference (SRC)  website and also provides venue information directly to each attendee. Although FASEB does not directly provide child care services, attendees are welcome to have guests (including spouses, children, nannies and babysitters) accompany them to the conference to provide such care. FASEB offers an alternative off-site registration fee at all conferences, to accommodate those with special family care needs (the off-site fee includes the conference and all meals but enables attendees to book their own accommodations). Both the FASEB and venue websites include information on nearby off-site accommodations that may assist attendees with locating licensed child care providers and daycare services. The venue management may also provide any assistance to attendees regarding child/family care issues or concerns, if available.  Please contact FASEB SRC staff with any special needs that they may have.
