Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival 2020
February 5 - February 9$10
CELEBRATE 107 YEARS OF WINTER TRADITION IN STEAMBOAT SPRINGS
FEBRUARY 5 – 9, 2020
Mention a parade and fireworks and people say that’s typical. Talk about adults on shovels being pulled down main street behind horses or skiers jumping through fiery hoops and people stop to listen. In Steamboat Springs we do things differently, and with the oldest, continuous Winter Carnival west of the Mississippi, this event is certainly no different.
A Winter Carnival button is required for entry and spectating at all events. Some events require tickets as well. Please be sure to check the schedule for details. In past years this button has cost $10.00 and can be purchased downtown at any of the events as well.
Winter Carnival buttons are for purchase at the following local businesses: Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club – Howelsen Hill Lodge, Yampa Valley Bank, City Offices, Steamboat Springs Chamber, Steamboat Art Museum, Info Center at Steamboat Resort, UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center, Resort Group, Sotheby’s International Realty, Wyndham Vacation, and Olsen Development. Please note that buttons can only be purchased with cash or check. Buttons purchased by credit card must be purchased at the Winter Sports Club office. Show your support of the Winter Carnival and the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club by making your purchase.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
Saturday and Sunday highlight the event with the Winter Carnival Street Events and the Night Show Extravaganza. The Street Events feature local Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club kids being pulled on skis behind horses right down main street in downtown Steamboat. A crowd favorite, the “Donkey Jump”, sends kids soaring off a jump for up to 40, or even 50 feet.
On Saturday, the Night Extravaganza on Howelsen Hill is lit up with colors as Winter Sports Club athletes flip through the air off the jumps while others descend down the mountain leaving a red glow outlining perfect ski turns.
