Steamboat’s Olympian Celebration & Send Off

Steamboat’s Olympian Celebration & Send Off

There is always something fun to do or celebrate here in Steamboat Springs, CO and this weekend is no different. I’ve written about how Steamboat produces more Winter Olympians than any other town in the U.S. and this weekend we will be sending off those athletes who made the 2014 Olympic team to compete in Sochi next month. We are very excited and proud of our community members who will be representing the United States in these great games.

  • Saturday, January 25 – 2014 Olympian Celebration & Send Off
    Steamboat Springs is home to nearly 80 Winter Olympians and currently has 30 or so athletes vying for a spot on this year’s Winter Olympic team. Join us on the 25th as we honor past and present Olympians, celebrate the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club’s 100 years of creating Olympians, and send off those athletes from Steamboat who will be headed to Sochi to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics.
    •  Wednesday, February 5 – Sunday, February 9 – Winter Carnival
      For 101 years and counting, the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club has been hosting our county’s longest running Winter Carnival west of the Mississippi. This uniquely Steamboat event is an opportunity for neighbors and visitors to gather and celebrate winter. But this is not just your typical parade and fireworks show – oh no. Imagine kids on skis and snowboards being pulled by horses down Lincoln Ave, an adult shovel race, skiers jumping through fiery hoops, torchlight parades, exhibitions, a snowy downhill mountain bike race, the famous “Lighted Man” and more! Make your reservations today, with entertainment like this accommodations go fast.
