So I'm moving to steamboat springs in about 6 months. For school, I will be living in the dorms at Colorado Mountain College.
I am 24 years old, will there be people my age in steamboat? I saw the population was around 12, 000. And I've heard its an expensive place to live because its a ski town. Also, is everything expensive there? (Basic needs).
I'm snowboarder, have been since I was 8. Moving from Minnesota so I'm used to the snow.

Any info about Steamboat is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Default Groceries, Booze

City Market is in Steamboat.
Kroger (in Colorado) has a policy/habit of charging the same price in every store in the state.
Good for people in Steamboat.

Likely to be move expensive as the population is not large and they make a lot of money from Winter tourists.
Every now and then, you will want to make a run to Applejack Wine & Spirits - Buy Wine Online, Colorado's Largest Wine & Liquor Store in Wheat Ridge.

While Applejack is fun, you can just shoot down to Costco in Gypsum, only about an hour and a half for some good prices.

Steamboat is expensive, you've got your housing covered so that's a great start. Look at picking up a part time job with the mountain and get your pass for free. You'll find people in you're age group to hang out with. I'm not sure about Steamboat, but Vail is full of free concerts and festivals all winter and summer, I'm sure Steamboat has free events too.
