Semotan - A Steamboat Legacy Since 1886
The Semotan Family
Tread of Pioneers Musueum's Newest Installment of the Foundation of Steamboat Exhibit.
Whether it's locally homesteading in the 1800s, running a large cattle operation on the Elk River, Competitively skiing, becoming a major founder of today's American Quarter Horse, or being featured on the ski resort's iconic "Steamobat Barn" poster, you would be hard-pressed to find a family that embodies the Yampa Valley spirit more than the Semotans.
