  • We went in summer, didn't try it out. Love that the original jump is still there for us to see, how it used only natural topography, none of the modern day dirt moving and building up start tower.  more »
  • This place wasn’t too far from where we were staying and my husband and friends really wanted to try the alpine slide. They loved it! This place was clean and had lots of neat things to do!  more »
  • Traveled through here for years without knowing this is an Alpine Combined Training Center year round. Tuesday tours at 0900 with Marianne will reward you with a depth of history regarding this site.  more »

  • This is a fine venue for a summer concert. Grass is green and ground is relatively even, so your (low) camp chair doesn't rock. Sloping allows for great views of the band. Acoustics are good. Nice balance of vendors for food and beverages. Adequate number of porta-potties. I've also enjoyed hiking the trails, although they are used most of all by mountain bikers. I can't speak to the permanent facilities, as I have not used them. Winter Olympians do train here for ski jumping. The Winter Carnival light show in February is THE BOMB!!!! As is the Independence Day fireworks display.
  • Steamboat Summer Concert Series was a blast. The band was incredible but the setting and beautiful backdrop made the whole experience that much more memorable. Steamboat offers a magical summer night.
  • As others have said, free skiing on Sunday in 2018. If you can be in Steamboat Springs for Winter Carnival be sure to watch the fireworks and torchlight parades at Howelsen Hill. It is a great local show and very FAMOUS. Get downtown early to find a place to park, or take the free bus, and walk across the bridge over the Yampa River. You will need a low cost Winter Carnival button to get close (base of ski hill) but these are for sale at the entry. Lots of fun.
  • Great opportunity to relax and listen to music. Be sure to come prepared with either blankets or chairs to sit on. A lot of people present; drinks and food sold. Beautiful backdrop.
  • Great area. Had an awesome free concert in the park. Great for family fun. Lots of amazing food booths. Highly recommended.
