HH Closures NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-March 13, 2020-As a precautionary measure around large public gatherings, Howelsen Hill will cancel the final Super Ski Free Sunday and End of Season Celebration scheduled for this weekend. 

“In light of the best interest for public safety and in line with the governor’s urging to limit large events, we made the decision today to not go ahead with the closing day event,” said Angela Cosby, Parks & Recreation Director for the City of Steamboat Springs.

Howelsen Hill was scheduled to host the final Super Ski Free Sunday and Closing Day Celebration this Sunday, March 15. With athletic on-hill events also ending today, the ski area will go ahead and close this afternoon finishing its 104th winter season. However, the Nordic trails and uphill access will continue to be available as conditions permit. 

“On behalf the entire Howelsen Hill staff, I want to thank everyone for a great season,” stated Brad Setter, Howelsen Ski & Rodeo Manager. “We’re looking forward to wonderful summer and already planning for the 2020/21 winter season.”

In a related move, the Howelsen Ice Complex will also shut down temporary at 5pm today for at least a week. At that time, the city will reevaluate reopening the facility. 

“Although there are no confirmed cases connected to these facilities, we’re taking the precautionary measures to protect our community and employees” continued Cosby. “We will monitor additional information over the weekend which might result in other modifications to services and facilities.”
