Rising as a visual icon in the community’s backyard, Howelsen Hill is a family oriented ski area where generations of local kids have learned to ski alongside world class athletes. There are more Olympic athletes in Steamboat Springs than any other town in North America. Recognizing the record setting possibilities of the steep north-facing hill across the Yampa River from downtown Steamboat Springs, skiing pioneer Carl Howelsen built a ski jump on its slopes for the 1915 Winter Carnival. On his first test run of the hill, he jumped 127 feet. In comparison, Orville Wright’s first piloted airplane flight in 1903 lasted 12 seconds and covered 120 feet. Carl Howelsen, and the hill named for him, launched a ski jumping and skiing legacy of enduring institutions in Steamboat Springs including: the Winter Carnival, the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, and has instilled a tradition of winter sports as a lifelong pursuit in young local athletes and aspiring Olympic competitors. Please wear good walking shoes and plan for Steamboat's potentially variable spring weather!
