February 5, 2020 - February 9, 2020 @ Downtown Steamboat Springs, Steamboat Ski Resort & Howelsen Hill
The Steamboat Winter Carnival has been around for over 100 years, and in that time there have been some interesting events and history that go along with this unique event.
Five Winter Carnival Fun Facts
• The first jumping hill in Steamboat Springs was Woodchuck Hill which is currently where CMC stands.
• The High School Band has marched on skis playing for the spectators of the Winter Carnival Parade for 71 Years. It first started in 1935 by band conductor Jerry McGuare. The band was the first band ever to march on skis.
• How does all that snow get on Lincoln Ave? Thanks to the City Public Works who coordinates the stockpiling of snow and covers Lincoln by 6am on Saturday and Sundar. 1500 plus tons of snow are used to cover the streets. And yes, they cover the streets and clean it up for each day of the street events. Special thanks to Public Works!
• In 2012 the Steamboat Winter Carnival was named a Top 10 Winter Carnival in the World by National Geographic
February 9, 2020, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM @ Howelsen Park
Sunday Funday is taken to an entirely new level as Howelsen Hill hosts Free Skiing every Sunday throughout the winter season. Now your family can enjoy the slopes for absolutely FREE at North America's Oldest Operating Ski Area and Steamboat's original ski area.
Skiing since 1915, Howelsen Hill has produced nearly 100 winter Olympians and has helped generations of Steamboat residents enjoy the sport. During the season, it’s as easy as simply stopping into the lodge to pick up your free ticket, which is required to access the lifts and the Nordic trails (cross-country, fat bike and snowshoe) on these special ski free days.
