104th Annual Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival Schedule

Winter Carnival is one of Steamboat's two favorite weekends of the year. It is also easily the easiest time of the year to understand why Steamboat Springs is special. The best thing about Steamboat is the sense of community here. Part of that sense of community is our dedication to mountain life and Winter Carnival shows that off all in one long weekend like nothing else. Where else closes a US Highway through their downtown for two mornings to cover it with snow and drag kids behind galloping horses, gives 6 year olds flares to ski down an icy slope at night, has a lighted man that sets off fireworks from his back while skiing, ski jumpers flying through a ring of fire, fireworks, and more

This is a great chance for people who love Steamboat Springs to make many local nonprofits’ holiday season a little brighter. In a community that gives so muck back, Yampa Valley Gives is an event that is important to us all.

 Yampa Valley Gives is a localized part of Colorado Gives Day. This statewide event takes place the first Tuesday in December every year. Currently in it’s third year, Yampa Valley Gives hopes to surpass $500,000 in donations for 50 vetted and verified nonprofits in the community. Glen Traylor of Ski Butlers brought this program to our valley and it has made a huge impact already. 

Reflecting on the event, Jon Wade stated, “There are so many wonderful non-profits in our community. This is a way for the community to give

  As the air starts to get crisp and the days grow shorter, folks in Steamboat start thinking about winter and the Champagne Power© that will soon be blanketing our slopes. The ski and boards get pulled from storage and the first coat of wax gets applied in anticipation of another big snow year. Winter and the skiing is what brought most of us here to Steamboat Springs Colorado. Yet if you have spent a season other than winter here you will know why we call this special place home. From mid-September through mid-October, the mountains and valleys surrounding Routt county start their amazing transformation. It begins in the highs peaks, then quickly makes it's way to the river bottoms. Fall is one of our favorite times of the year and for the next few

 For over 100 years Steamboat Springs Colorado has been celebrating the Fourth of July in true Western form. From our 112th annual Cowboy Roundup Days to the Parade down Lincoln Avenue, we celebrate things a little differently. Where else can you have a Pancake Breakfast, run a 1/2 Marathon, Nordic skate down the center of Main Street and launch yourself off the 50 meter ski jump, all by noon! This weekend is one our favorite weekends of the year. The trails are in perfect condition to ride or hike and the river is in prime fishing condition. Feeling lazy, float the afternoon away and spend the heat of the day in the "C hole" swimming and relaxing. There are plenty of fun activities to do this weekend and we can't wait to celebrate our Independence

I often say that everyday is a Powder Day (Epic) on Emerald Mtn since it doesn't require fresh snow to be amazing. Emerald Mountain is one of the places that makes Steamboat truly special. It is just across the river from downtown Steamboat and an easy bike ride from just about anywhere in town.  I was dragging all day today and my knee was a bit weaker than it has been lately. Somehow after having Elk Tacos for dinner I felt like I needed to head up Emerald. I think I justneeded to see if I could I make it to the Quarry. I had been saving Emerald for June 30th when my goal was to get up the Lane of Pain to the cell towers since Emerald is my favorite place to bike.


I hopped on my bike and rode into town, down Yampa Street, then up Blackmere (since I
