102nd Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival


Winter Carnival Steamboat Springs

Winter Carnival Steamboat Springs

For 102 years now, Steamboat has celebrated our love of snow and our western and ski heritages with one heck-of-a Winter Carnival. Imagine 4 days of festivities, snow activities, fireworks, friendly competitions, and shenanigans that bring a community and visitors together for fun and merriment. That’s what the 2015 Winter Carnival here in Steamboat Springs, CO is about.

This year we are also celebrating Howelsen Hill’s 100 year anniversary. Thanks to Norwegian ski jumping champion, Carl Howelsen, who came to the Yampa Valley in 1913 along with his skis and his passion for snow sports, we have one of the oldest continuously running ski areas in Colorado (Howelsen Hill) and have one of the oldest Winter Sports Clubs in the nation. Howelsen organized friends and neighbors to build a modest ski jump in Steamboat and kicked off the first Winter Carnival with jumping competitions and cross country ski races. The rest is history.

Boatload of Festivities Set for Steamboat’s Closing Weekend

Over 406″ of snow fell on the summit of Mt. Werner at the Steamboat Ski Area this season making for a great year of skiing, snowboarding and other snow play. I hope you were lucky enough to enjoy some champagne powder while it was falling because this ski season is coming to an end.
