Ski downtown Steamboat Springs.

Howelsen Hill Ski Area is the oldest continuously operating ski area in Colorado. Owned by the city of Steamboat Springs and home to the 99-year-old Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, this small ski area has sent more skiers to international competition than any other area in North America. Howelsen has been the training ground for more than 64 Olympians making over 90 Winter Olympic appearances, 15 members of the Colorado Ski Hall of Fame and six members of the National Ski Hall of Fame.

On any given winter day, you’re bound to find future Olympians training on its slopes, the ski jumps and Nordic trails that rise behind downtown Steamboat. For a lift ticket that’s still just 20 bucks, you too can try out their training grounds while enjoying a night ski under the lights or a skate ski around the track. Tubing at Howelsen Hill supports Winter Sports Club athletes.
