Rock Climbing

Ski Haus has a little bit of everything for your next climbing adventure. We stock ropes, harnesses, carabiners, cams, and a whole lot more. We have several avid climbers on our staff that are always happy to answer questions on gear and climbing locations. There are many new and active climbing opportunities in and around the Steamboat area including some that you won’t find in the local guide book. Stop by Ski Haus anytime to gear up or to simply chat local climbs!
