100th Winter Carnival in Steamboat Springs

100th Winter Carnival in Steamboat Springs

Downtown Steamboat
Downtown Steamboat
One of the best things about Steamboat Springs is the Winter Carnival.  It’s 100 years old this year and it’s going to be more fun than 24 inches of power, a 700 pound birthday cake, or catching a huge trout at the tail waters near Steamboat.
The Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival is an event not to miss. Every year I’m amazed at how cool these 5 days are. Come on up, it start today.
