Howelsen Hill

Howelsen Hill boasts a remarkable heritage. It is Colorado’s oldest continuously operated ski area, since 1915, has the largest and most complete natural ski jumping complex in North America, and is known for training Olympic competitors. It has produced over 85 Olympians in both Alpine and Nordic events.

This small ski area in downtown Steamboat Springs, Colorado is not a typical alpine ski area. It features a series of ski jumps, the largest of which is 374 feet, a 6 mile long run, plus nordic, snowshoe, and fat bike trails. All accessible from one double chairlift, three surface lifts.

Howelsen offers affordable skiing and snowboarding, with terrain catered toward all abilities and ages with 50 skiable acres (10 are open for night skiing), and 150 inches of annual average snowfall.

The mountain has 2 year-round nordic jumps, alpine race terrain, a terrain park, ski and boarder-cross areas, cross-country terrain, freestyle mogul and aerial complexes, plus beginner terrain making it one of the most unique training facilities in the country.

TRAVEL TIP: Steamboat City Council approved free skiing on Sundays here!
