Please stop by our Visitors Center and let our knowledgeable staff answer your questions and help you plan a memorable Steamboat vacation.

Corey Kopischke

Enjoy our legendary snow and have fun off the mountain while you explore historic downtown and soak in our world famous hot springs. Wide-open spaces offer miles of cross country skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing trails. Experience our authentic Western heritage with a sleigh ride dinner. For even more adventure, take a snowmobile tour or see the backcountry by dogsled. When your day in the snow winds down, take your pick from a variety of dining options and explore the arts and culture scene in Steamboat. Once you get a taste of our local character you’ll see why so many of us came for the winter and stayed for the summer. Tom Kern Chief Executive Officer Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association

Rick DeVos welcomes you to Steamboat Springs! As executive director of the 99-year-old Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, the organization that proudly brings us the 100th annual Winter Carnival this year, Rick DeVos knows a thing or two about all kinds of skiing and riding. He alpine skis, but as the overseer of those iconic ski jumps on Howelsen Hill and all those kids who fly off them with the regularity of an after-school snack, DeVos regrets to inform us, “Yes, at some point you’re just too old to learn to ski jump,” he says. “I have jumped the K18, K25 and K38. I started jumping too late in life and the self-preservation instinct had already kicked in. Wish I had started younger.” Unlike most locals, DeVos came for the summer and stayed for Steamboat’s winter. He arrived on a motorcycle during the summer of 1979, spotted a college friend at a red light on Lincoln Avenue, was still here in the fall, and jumped on board at the ski area for winter. “I stayed for the lifestyle,” he says. DeVos shares with us Steamboat’s “most unusual sound:” the Winter Carnival night show at Howelsen Hill, with 5,000 people clapping their hands with gloves on. “It’s a loud, muffled sound that’s super strange,” he says. “Winter Carnival is a breath of fresh air in today’s world. We are still doing things from the early 1900s. It’s not Disneyland. It’s real.”

Steamboat Springs Visitors’ Guide: What makes a perfect winter day for you? Rick DeVos: Cold, dark thick clouds, heavy snow falling, really deep accumulation. Day off… spending it outside...skiing with family and friends or hiking with my dog, or both. VG: When did you start skiing? R.D.: Fourth grade with the Blizzard Ski Club in Milwaukee. Thanks Mom and Dad. VG: What’s your favorite Winter Carnival event? R.D.: Street events for the big crowd, horses, dogs, moms, dads and kids. Marching bands, royalty, shovel races…it’s not your normal event. They’re fun and spectator friendly. And also, the Night Extravaganza. Don’t miss this: 300 participants, the Lighted Man, 20 torchlight parades, jumps, bumps, the Old Man Roman Candle Dance, the Fiery Hoop Jumpers, Pink Floyd and the Flaming Sled, and a spectacular fireworks show. VG: Thinking back to your kids growing up, got a proudest parental moment when they participated in a Winter Carnival event?

VG 4 | ONLINE AT WWW.ST EA MBO A T C HA MBER.C OM

R.D.: Soda Pop Slalom, when they both were very young. Always full of local kids, it was great fun to see them race down Headwall for the very first time. I still have pictures of both Nic and Mandi on this day, at age 3-ish, on my desk. VG: Have you ever participated in a Winter Carnival street event? R.D.: No, but many torchlight parades. And I have stood at the fireworks launch site. Awesome, powerful experience…loud! VG: Any legendary moments in Winter Carnival history you wish you could go back to? R.D.: Lighted Man, back in the day. He was one of a kind and made the suit in his garage. He was Americana at its best. Also, I would have loved to have met Carl Howelsen and seen him “perform.” I can’t thank him enough for bringing skiing to the Yampa Valley. VG: Where are you when you’re not skiing? R.D.: Outside. Deep in the forest, hiking in the snow, shoveling the roof, snow blowing the driveway….enjoying winter.


VG: You oversee a lot of travel to all kinds of ski towns. What makes Steamboat different? R.D.: Real town, real people, off the beaten path, worth the effort. We don’t have an interstate running through our town. Kids rule here. VG: What are your favorite Steamboat amenities? R.D.: Steamboat Ski Area, the bike trail along the Yampa River, Continental Divide Trail, Howelsen Hill’s Nordic jumps, Devil’s Causeway, Fish Creek Falls and Buffalo Pass. VG: What’s your favorite run on a powder day? R.D.: Sideburn. I love the gladed trees, lack of people, untracked snow late into the day. VG: And how about a bluebird spring day? R.D.: Storm Peak Face to Sunset to Moonlight…. VG: Any advice for the best way to watch a ski or snowboard race? R.D.: Look for a spot to see the most of the competition venue. You’ll notice there will be a bunch of coaches congregating in this area – they know where to stand. Put your back to the wind and, unless it’s cold, keep the sun off your face and out of your eyes. I’d always rather be overdressed than cold. You can also become a valuable volunteer as you get experience. It’s fun, and it lets you be part of the dream. VG: Got any interesting trivia about Steamboat’s Winter Carnival that we should all know? R.D.: It was about surviving Cabin Fever. Think of Steamboat with no snowplows, big snow, no way to get around, being stuck inside. People couldn’t wait to get together to have some fun and celebrate. Then there was this “crazy man,” Carl Howelsen, who was jumping on wood “barrel staves.” This drew a crowd. Check out the Tread of the Pioneers Museum to see photos and memorabilia of Steamboat’s love affair with winter. VG: SSWSC turns 100 next year. What kind of celebrations can we look forward to? R.D.: We are looking forward to bringing back many past SSWSC alumni to town to help us celebrate. Over 16,000 folks have been involved with the SSWSC since 1914. It will also be an Olympic year so we will be celebrating the SSWSC Olympians as they head to Russia to compete. STE A M B O A T SP R INGS VISITO R S’ GU ID E | Winter 2 0 1 2 / 1 3 | VG 5

Must See Stops Get to know some of Steamboat Springs’ special spots – inside and out. Old Town

Downtown Steamboat is the heart of this historic ranching and skiing community. Howelsen Hill looms over streets lined with historic buildings, century-old businesses and quaint neighborhoods, plus modern shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. www.mainstreetsteamboatsprings.com

Yampa River Core Trail

Seven scenic miles of multi-use paved trails wind through downtown and along the Yampa River for walking, running and access to fishing holes. During Steamboat’s notorious three-wire winters, when the snow depth is known to exceed all three levels of barbed wire surrounding local ranches, the city’s little blue tractors keep the trail clear of snow. Dotted with sculptures and natural springs along the way, the yearround trail accesses Howelsen Hill, the ice skating rink, the Depot, quiet residential neighborhoods and tranquil natural areas. 970-879-4300

VG 14 | ON LIN E AT WWW.ST EA MBO A T C HA MBER.C OM

Fish Creek Falls

Four miles east of downtown Steamboat Springs, a 283-foot waterfall pours out of the Mount Zirkel Wilderness. This is an ideal spot for a short, handicap-accessible hike to the base of the falls; it is also a jumping-off point for snowshoeing and ice climbing. From Lincoln Avenue, turn north on Third Street, then right on Fish Creek Falls Road. Follow it to the end. Daily parking fee: $5.

Bud Werner Memorial Library

Steamboat’s environmentally friendly public library graces the banks of the Yampa River downtown. In addition to the expansive book and magazine collection, there are public computers, library-wide wi-fi, a lively children’s section, story times, free films, author talks, a local history room and plentiful artistic and architectural details to enjoy. 970-879-0240 | www.steamboatlibrary.org

The Depot

Home of the Steamboat Springs Arts Council, this historic 1909 railroad-station-turned-gallery houses changing visual art exhibits and a variety


of events. Open 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, and noon-4 p.m. on Saturdays. 1001 13th St. | 970-879-9008 www.steamboatsprings­arts.com

Steamboat Art Museum

Tread of Pioneers Museum

Courtesy Tread of Pioneers Museum

Marjorie Perry skis past the Depot during the 1914 Winter Carnival. While at a railroad stop at Hot Sulphur Springs in 1913, Perry was introduced to Carl Howelsen, a Norwegian traveling with a group of countrymen giving ski jumping exhibitions. She persuaded him to move on to Steamboat Springs, where hills were steeper and higher. He was to settle there and help organize the first Steamboat Winter Carnival in 1914. Perry attended every carnival from then until her death, except one in 1935.

Rotating exhibits of Western art are housed in the historic First National Bank building, downtown Steamboat. Open Tuesday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 807 Lincoln Ave. | 970-870-1755 www.steamboatartmuseum.com Housed in a 1908 Queen Anne-style Victorian home with turn-of-the-century furnishings, plus a new addition, the Tread of Pioneers Museum is preparing to open its newly expanded facility this winter. Exhibits will range from local ranching to mining, Native American history and pioneer life – plus a comprehensive ski history exhibit that includes the original Lighted Man costume and a Snurfer, the first incarnation of a snowboard invented by part-time Steamboat resident Sherm Poppen. Call or check the Tread of Pioneers website for the grand re-opening date this winter. Open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. | Corner of Eighth and Oak streets | 970-879-2214 | www.treadofpioneers.org

Walking Tour Walk back in time and discover historic Steamboat Springs. A stroll through downtown reveals buildings dating back to the late 1800s and nine of the area’s more than 150 mineral springs. Compiled with the help of the Tread of Pioneers Museum and Historic Routt County, the tour takes one to two hours. Parking is available in city lots and on the street. Please note two-hour parking limit signs.

● Listed on Routt County Register of Historic Properties ● Listed on the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties ● Listed on the National Register of Historic Places 1 | Tread of Pioneers Museum | 800 Oak St. Constructed by Ernest Campbell in 1908, this was home to the Zimmerman family from 1913 to 1956. In 1959, the Tread of Pioneers Museum opened in this building. The Queen Anne-style house was once located at Fifth and Oak streets, and was moved to this location in 1988. The adjoining Utterback House ● was moved to the site in 1997 from its original location at Fourth and Oak. The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

Sept. 9, 1922. Designed by noted Colorado architect Robert Fuller, the three-story building was completed in December 1923 at a cost of $122,000. 6 | The Old Town Pub | 600 Lincoln Ave. Built in 1904 by Ernest Campbell, this structure was originally the Albany Hotel. From 1914-1921, the building was a hospital run by Dr. F.E. Willett. After the hospital relocated, the second floor became the popular Odd Fellows dance hall. The first floor served as a grocery, post office, electric store and public library from 1924 to 1967.

2 | Giamboni House | 646 Oak St. Camillo Giamboni built this structure in 1889. Hidden under the siding is the original log building. This was home to Swiss brothers Henry and Camillo Giamboni, who were the first to make skis commercially in Steamboat.

7 | Pioneer Building | 700 block of Lincoln Ave. ●● The Pioneer Building was in continuous use as a hotel from 1923 until 1979. In its heyday, the upstairs rooms were run as a classic Western boarding house and the downstairs housed the colorful Pioneer Bar.

3 | Christian Science Church | Seventh & Oak ●● Margaret Crawford, Steamboat’s pioneer mother, was a charter member of the town’s Christian Science Society, organized in July 1908. The log building, which continues to house the Christian Science Church, was completed in November 1934.

8 | First National Bank/Rehder Building | Eighth & Lincoln (Steamboat Art Museum) ●● The First National Bank of Steamboat Springs, chartered in 1902, occupied a small frame structure on this site until the present building was constructed in 1905. Dakota sandstone from Emerald Mountain and handmade bricks from Trogler’s local brickyard were used in the construction.

Indian chief who came to Steamboat after making a fortune mining lead, zinc and silver in Oklahoma. The Chief was Steamboat’s first theater equipped for “talkies.” 10. Howelsen Hill | Seen from Ninth and Lincoln ●● Rising up steeply from the south side of the Yampa River, this section of Emerald Mountain is named for Norwegian ski jumper Carl Howelsen, the “Flying Norseman” of Barnum and Bailey’s Circus. Carl arrived in Steamboat in 1913 and introduced the townspeople to ski jumping and recreational skiing. By the 1930s, Howelsen Hill facilities included slalom and downhill courses and a “boat tow” consisting of two sleds pulled up the mountain by a cable powered by a Model T engine and transmission. In 1947, a combination chair/T-bar lift to the top of Emerald Mountain was installed and was one of the longest lifts in the U.S. at that time. A 90-meter jump was installed by 1950. Howelsen Hill is the only ski area in Colorado listed on the Colorado State Register of Historic Places. 11 | Harwig’s Saddlery | 911 Lincoln Ave. (Harwig’s & L’Apogée) Built in the 1890s, this was originally a drug store, then a meat market. In 1916 it became Harwig’s Saddlery and Western Wear, which was run by the Harwig family until 1984. The historic cowboy sign over the storefront was painted in the 1950s or 1960s by noted Western artist Merrill Mahaffey. 12 | The Old Pilot Building | 1009 Lincoln Ave. James Hoyle began Northwest Colorado’s first newspaper, The Steamboat Pilot, on July 31, 1885. This brick and stone building was constructed in fall 1909 for the newspaper printing office, which occupied the building until 1999. 13 | Steamboat Laundry Building | 11th and Oak (Laundry & Creekside Café) ●● Built over a 10-year period starting in 1910, this two-story brick and river rock structure was constructed for the Steamboat Laundry, Dry Cleaning and Pressing business. 14 | Carver Power Plant ● | Tenth Street between Lincoln and Oak (Centennial Hall) In 1900, a coal-powered plant was devised to make Steamboat Springs the first town in Northwest Colorado to provide its residents with electricity. The steam, a by-product of the system used to create electricity, was used to heat nearby schools and residences. This building was rehabilitated to house city hall. 15 | Lorenz Building | 928 Lincoln Ave. This building was completed in 1893 and was originally a general store. In 1912, it became the courthouse when the county seat relocated from Hahn’s Peak. After 1921, the courtroom occupied the second floor, while the clerk, treasurer and jail shared the ground floor. When the present-day courthouse was completed in 1923, the building became the site of a dance hall called the Social Benefit Association or SBA. 16 | Hugus Building/Thiesen Mall | 912 Lincoln Ave. (Steamboat Smokehouse) Built in 1890, this was the site of J.W. Hugus & Co., one of the nation’s first general store chains. It sold farm equipment, furniture, stoves, feed and gasoline in barrels, among other items, in a facility equipped with electric lights, cash carriers and other labor-saving devices. The store housed Steamboat’s first telephone.

17 | Maxwell/Squire Building ●● | 840 Lincoln Ave. (Lyon Drug Store) Once known as the Maxwell Building, this structure was built by J.D. Maxwell of local pressed brick from Trogler’s brickyard, stone trim and plate glass. A post office occupied a room on the ground floor from 1909 to 1962. In 1920, Chamberlain-Grey Drug Store was the first drug store to occupy this site. 18 | F.M. Light & Sons | 830 Lincoln Ave. The F.M. Light family moved from Hicksville, Ohio, to Steamboat in 1905. Soon after their arrival, they purchased the lot, erected the building and secured enough merchandise to open this clothing store. Light family members traveled throughout Northwest Colorado and southern Wyoming, displaying their merchandise and taking orders from ranchers for Western wear, hats, boots, saddles and equipment. The retail store is still owned by family members. 19 | The Furlong Building | 810 Lincoln Ave. (Bushwacker’s) This building was erected in the 1920s using stone from the Emerald Mountain quarry to frame the windows. Norwegian ski jumper Carl Howelsen completed the brickwork and masonry. 20 | The Routt County National Bank Building ●● 802 Lincoln Ave. (Wild Horse Gallery) Built in 1918 with stonework by Carl Howelsen, this building is a unique landmark of two different periods. The Lincoln Avenue façade shows the rehabilitated 1918 exterior, and the Eighth Street side displays the changes from the 1940s.

Extended Tour A. and B. Crawford Houses ●● 1238 and 1184 Crawford Ave. The second and third houses built by the Crawfords are still standing. The second home, at 1238 Crawford Ave. (on 12th Street), was built in 1886 from native lumber from the Suttle Mill. The bay window was added later to accommodate their daughter’s wedding reception. The large stone house at 1184 Crawford Ave.●● was built in 1894 of stone from the Emerald Mountain quarry. The family occupied this house until Mrs. Crawford’s death in 1939, and have recently moved in again. C. Cabin Hotel/ Bud Werner Memorial Library 1289 Lincoln Ave. The Cabin Hotel was built on this site in 1909 to serve passengers coming to Steamboat by train. It was one of the most luxurious hotels in the country and the largest in Northwest Colorado. In 1939, it burned to the ground in less than one hour, claiming two lives. D. The Depot ●● 1001 13th St. Designed by famous Denver architect Frank E. Edbrooke, the Depot was completed in 1909, shortly after the Moffat Line reached Steamboat in December 1908. During the early 1910s, Steamboat was the largest cattle-shipping center in the country. The train provided passenger service until 1968. The Depot now houses the Steamboat Springs Arts Council and the Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts.

Winter Carnival

The Steamboat Springs High School band marches on skis during the Diamond Hitch Parade at the 71st Winter Carnival.

Steamboat Springs celebrates winter and 100 years of fun in the streets: February 6-10 Since 1914, February has lured locals and visitors alike to downtown Steamboat to embrace winter events like ski flying, skijoring and shovel races. In its early days, Winter Carnival was a way to cope with cabin fever during Steamboat’s three-wire winters. Today, amateur and professional gelande­ sprung jumpers shatter world records as they take to the ski jumps with alpine skis, boots and poles. Kids on skis fly behind galloping horses along Lincoln Avenue. Adult daredevils are pulled on a shovel behind a horse – competing to hang on as long as possible. Watch a dual slalom bicycle race, the snowboarding jam session, the international muzzleloading biathlon and the telemark revival. And if all that’s not enough, there’s the annual appearance of the Steamboat Springs High School band, “marching” on skis to kick off the Diamond Hitch Parade, and The Lighted Man, who skis down Howelsen Hill’s steep slope with fireworks launched from a specially designed backpack during the Night Show Extravaganza.

Along with ice sculptures along Lincoln Avenue created by local high school students, the carnival includes the Soda Pop Slalom, a tubing party, and more. The city stockpiles more than 400 tons of snow to re-bury the downtown street for the weekend events. Winter Carnival is sponsored by the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club to raise money for scholarships for young athletes. Buy a Winter Carnival button for admission to all events. Here’s what not to miss during the 100th annual Steamboat Winter Carnival taking place Wednesday-Sunday, Feb. 6-10 at Howelsen Hill, in the downtown streets and at the Steamboat Ski Area.

Amateur alpine ski flying, aka gelandesprung

Carl Howelsen organized the first Winter Carnival as a platform for a ski jumping competition. Throughout the years, amateur and professional jumpers often shattered world records during Winter Carnival. Today, gelandesprung re-invents the

VG 22 | ON LIN E AT WWW.ST EA MBO A T C HA MBER.C OM

Nordic tradition by taking to the skies with alpine skis, boots and poles. It may not be Carl’s choice of equipment, but he’d likely still be proud. The event attracts the best jumpers in the nation, and records continue to be set on the Howelsen run-out. When: Morning training runs on Friday and Saturday. Finals on Sunday. Where: Howelsen Hill

Skijoring

During the second Winter Carnival in 1915, the town introduced its first “skijoring” events, where contestants were pulled behind a horse down the snowy street. Local children still compete in these events, flying behind a galloping horse on Lincoln Avenue for a slalom course, ringing hoops or gaining enough speed to launch the farthest jump. Area ranches supply the horses and skilled riders who’ve often been riding in the Winter Carnival for generations. When: Saturday and Sunday mornings Where: Lincoln Avenue, downtown

Winter Carnival Shovel race

The fastest and most entertaining compe­ tition of the Winter Carnival involves a horse, a shovel and a daredevil impersonating a rag doll. Riders 18 and over are pulled down Lincoln Avenue behind a horse on a shovel. The fastest shovel rider who can hold on to the finish wins. Other horse-pulled feats during the morning Winter Carnival street events include the Ring and Box, Ring and Spear, Street Slalom and the Donkey Jump, where longest distance landed while staying on your feet wins. When: Saturday and Sunday mornings Where: Lincoln Avenue, downtown

Night Show Extravaganza

Much like the appearance of the Olympic Flame and the lighting of the cauldron during Opening Ceremonies, the Lighted Man is the most anticipated symbol of the Winter Carnival. Since 1936, the Banks family has supplied a skier, donned with lights from head to toe, for Winter Carnival’s Night Show. As he skis down Howelsen Hill’s steep slope, pyrotechnics launch from a specially designed backpack to the thrill of the crowd. Following the Lighted Man, hundreds of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club members descend Howelsen Hill bearing torches and glow sticks as they ski, snowboard or jump their way, choreographed to music, down the slopes. Courtesy Tread of Pioneers Museum

Finally, a Night Show tradition since 1952, a ring of fire marks the take-off of the 90-meter jump while ski patrollers fly through the flames, with the final patroller carrying a rescue toboggan on fire. And the grand finale fireworks are stupendous. When: Saturday night Where: Howelsen Hill

Claudius Banks started the Lighted Man tradition in 1936, and made his first appearance in a Steamboat Winter Carnival night show in 1939. His costume had 200 lights powered by wet cells and yards of wiring. Today, Claudius’ son Jon Banks serves as the Lighted Man, wearing a 70-pound battery-powered suit along with 32 Roman candles, 12 sky rockets and a football helmet studded with flashing lights.

Diamond Hitch Parade & The World’s Only Ski Marching Band

Although “Ski Town, USA” is often attributed to Steamboat’s Olympic heritage, it’s actually a name coined in the 1950s to describe the Steamboat Springs High School band that “marches” on skis. Since 1935, the school’s skiing band has made its annual appearance to kick off the Diamond Hitch Parade. When: Sunday morning Where: Lincoln Avenue, downtown 970-879-0695 | www.sswsc.org

Pro-rodeo cowboys catch some air during their race to the bottom of Headwall during the Cowboy Downhill.

Steamboat Springs harbors a long tradition of winter festivals, celebrations and feats of costumed athleticism. Dress warm and join the ritual fun. Cowboy Downhill

Pro-rodeo cowboys are adept at roping a calf or hitting eight seconds on a bull. But can they chase a gate? On skis? The 39th annual Cowboy Downhill tests winter wrangling skills as pro-rodeo cowboys from all over the country convene in Steamboat during the Western Stock Show. More than 100 cowboys, clad in typical chaps and hats, slide, wobble and sometimes tumble down a slalom course and over a jump, then ski en masse to a finish line at the base of the Steamboat Ski Area. The Cowboy Downhill is an entertaining reminder that Steamboat was a cowboy town long before it was Ski Town USA. Monday, Jan. 21 | Steamboat Ski Area 970-879-6111 | www.steamboat.com

New to Nordic? Gear up to tour. Here’s what you’ll need. Nordic equipment: Choose classic, skate or backcountry skis, boots and poles. Rely on the experts at local ski shops to purchase or rent equipment that is appropriate for its use and is the correct size – and make sure they know your trail destination. Clothing: Layers that wick away moisture are best. A waterproof jacket and pants will keep you warm and dry. Proper socks will prevent blisters. Hat, gloves and sunglasses are necessary, and goggles will help with visibility on snowy days. Other: Map, sunscreen, water and snacks. Cell phones can save lives, but reception is spotty in remote areas. See listings in Shopping starting on VG84 for Nordic rentals.

Wild Rides

Steamboat Powdercats celebrates its 30th anniversary of snowcat assisted backcountry skiing on Buffalo Pass this winter. Mother Nature regularly provides some of the deepest snow in Colorado for 8,000 – 14,000 vertical feet of skiing or riding.

Soar, sled, saddle up or schuss. Five adrenaline rides let you blaze a new trail through the Yampa Valley and discover something different. Snowmobile

Take an adrenaline adventure as you squeeze the throttle and rocket across meadows blanketed in deep, fresh snow: Steamboat is powder paradise for the motorized set too. On a snowmobile, the surrounding Continental Divide’s thick forests and expansive high-mountain meadows promise plentiful snow, views to take your breath away and a chance to get the lead out. Guided tours range from two hours to all day – and no experience is required. Snowmobile guides are listed in Activities, starting on VG51.

Horseback

Steamboat was a ranching town before it became a ski town, so you don’t have to look far to find real cowboys. Climb atop a gentle horse and take a pristine two-hour tour into

the deep, unbroken snow. Guided winter horseback rides showcase local ranchland and forests – with spectacular views over the surrounding peaks and the valley. Del’s Triangle 3 Ranch | 970-879-3495 www.steamboathorses.com Saddleback Ranch | 970-879-3711 www.saddlebackranch.net

Hot Air Balloon

Soaring at heights of up to 3,000 feet, hot air ballooning is one of the most coveted ways to see the local landscape. The Yampa Valley is renowned as a balloon pilot’s dream with “box winds” that keep flights contained in a circular pattern over the open valley floor. Bundle up and look straight down on the world below. Wild West Balloon Adventures | 970-879-7219 www.wildwestballooning.com

Let a team of Alaskan Huskies guide you through the Yampa Valley landscape. Tucked into a sled, watch the dogs’ steamy breath rise into the air as you take in views of the surrounding Flat Tops south of Steamboat or a working ranch west of town – and even try your hand at mushing on these tours operated by Iditarad mushers. Grizzle-T Dog Sledding | 970-870-1782 www.steamboatdogsledding.com

Snow Cat

Ride up, then ski down through waist-deep powder on Buffalo Pass. Steamboat Powdercats offers an all-inclusive, day-long backcountry experience accessed by snow cats. Trips are separated by ability (intermediate, advanced and expert) to ensure the day is tailored to your skills. Steamboat Powdercats also provides fat skis and snowboards, precautionary avalanche beacons, guides, catered lunch, water and snacks. Bonus! Try a moonlit powder ski. Monthly dinner ski outings are offered in conjunction with the full moon. 970-879-5188 | www.steamboatpowdercats.com

Story Behind the Mountain Ski Through History. As the Steamboat Ski Area celebrates its 50th anniversary, take a second glance at the history behind the mountain’s iconic runs, lifts and restaurants. Storm Mountain, the original name for the Steamboat Ski Area, opened on January 12, 1963. There was a double chairlift and an A-frame warming hut. Total lift tickets sold on that -25°F day totaled $13.75. Since then, runs have been named in honor of ski patrollers, maintenance men, ranchers and routes mistakenly traveled. Bar UE, Flying Z, Crowtrack, WJW and Triangle 3 are all brands from local ranches. Buddy Werner’s dad ran the Bar UE. Local ski jumper and veteran ski patroller Delbert Heid ran the Triangle 3. WJW was the last cattle allotment on Storm Mountain. Bashor Bowl was named for Carl Bashor, who skied the entire mountain before it was a ski area and whose family homesteaded that land.

The Bear Claw run was named by ski area founder Jim Temple, as the trees that he and the original trail cutters found throughout the area were scratched up by bears. Buddy’s Run was named because Olympian Gordon Wren thought it was the best one on the mountain in 1968, and he wanted to honor his friend Buddy Werner. Elkhead was named because ski area pioneers Loris Werner, Dick Randolph and John Fetcher found a rodent-stashed elk head in the area while scoping new terrain in 1971. Steamboat’s Gondola was the world’s first eight-person mono-cable gondola. Installed in 1986, it was originally known as the Silver Bullet Gondola. It replaced the 252-foothigh, three-tower gondola that had served Thunderhead since 1970. Hazie’s restaurant was named for Hazie Mae Ralston Werner, mother to Olympians Buddy, Skeeter and Loris.

High Noon, One O’clock, Two O’clock and Three O’clock were named for the time of day each one is hit by the sun. Rolex was a premium run within the “time theme,” so Loris Werner requested use of the highend watchmaker’s name in 1985 and French Olympic skiing superstar Jean-Claude Killy came for the official naming of the run. Mount Werner was originally known as Storm Mountain, but it was renamed in 1965 in honor of hometown Olympian Buddy Werner after he was killed in an avalanche in Switzerland in April 1964. The statue at the top of the mountain (across from the Storm Peak Express) depicts Werner. Locals consider it good luck and a good omen for snowfall to tap his head on the way by. Ragnar’s restaurant was named for Ragnar Omtvedt, Carl Howelsen’s ski buddy and the 1916 world champion ski jumper who set his record in Steamboat. Valley View was named for a race course on Rabbit Ears Pass that provided the area’s first downhill race in 1939.

Steamboat Ski Area’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations Saturday, Nov. 24: Opening weekend free concert with Dirty Dozen Brass Band

New Orleans’ groovin’ big brass band gives you a dozen reasons to be in Steamboat for opening weekend. The Dirty Dozen Brass Band plays a free show at 2 p.m. in Gondola Square.

February: Sealing a 50th anniversary time capsule

Steamboat locks away items from the year 2012 to be opened in 2063 during the resort’s 75th anniversary, with Olympians and other hometown celebrities on hand to help seal the past for the future.

The birthday party kicks off with a lighting of the cauldron, Hazie’s 50th anniversary dinner, and a Golden Gala at the top of the Gondola

Adventures on Ice

Fish Creek Falls freezes for winter ice climbing.

Hot tip: Investigate Steamboat Springs’ frozen terrain for a cool day off the slopes.

Fish

The Yampa River is famous for its year-round fishing. Go ice fishing with the locals at Stagecoach Reservoir (a state park 16 miles south of Steamboat) or snowmobile in with an expert guide to fly fish below the dam – Stagecoach’s tailwaters flow at a constant 54 degrees and deliver a rich food supply to hungry trout. Ice fishermen also drop their lures north of Steamboat at Steamboat Lake State Park. Looking for equipment, advice or a winter fishing guide? Check out the fishing guide listings in Activities starting on VG51.

Climb

Spiky crampons and ice axes aid your ice climbing ascent of frozen Fish Creek Falls. Even never-ever beginners can do it. Halfday trips teach you to climb the frozen face as water tumbles behind the falls – then peer over wild Fish Creek Canyon from the top. Rocky Mountain Ventures | 970-870-8440 www.steamboatclimbing.com

Drive

Go ahead and take the icy drive. The Bridgestone Winter Driving School helps you take the fear out of traveling on slick roads, snow and ice. Specially designed tracks allow drivers to practice and perfect their skills for winter road conditions. Under the close eye of professional drivers, students gain control and confidence on turns and hills, and learn to avoid accidents during half- and full-day courses. 970-879-6104 | www.winterdrive.com STE A M B O A T SP R INGS VISITO R S’ GU ID E | Winter 2 0 1 2 / 1 3 | VG 33

Nightlife

Free concerts rock the ‘boat in Gondola Square after the lifts close during Springalicious celebrations.

Après Ski for Adults Whether you’ve been hitting the slopes all day or relaxing at one of the local coffee shops, the après ski scene in Steamboat Springs offers diverse opportunities to set the tone for the rest of the night. Sample mellow to rip-roaring from within seconds of the gondola to the heart of downtown.

Go big on the mountain.

Slopeside Grill has long been a favorite with its ski-in, ski-out location. Catch a game and enjoy pizzas named for iconic ski runs along with a refreshing cold beer or hot, spiked cocoa. Look for the ice bar and Steamboat‘s unofficial “beach” come spring. At Saketumi next door, satisfy your sushi and sake cravings with happy hour specials starting at 4 p.m. The Bear River Bar & Grill next to the gondola offers live music and après ski grub, plus one of the best views of the free winter concert series. Ditto for Gondola Pub and Grill with its ideal Gondola Square location.

Experience classic.

What used to be the old ski patrollers’ trailer is now the T-Bar, where PBR can be found in abundance and locals hang out to recap tall tales from a day of riding or skiing. Personalized beer mugs line the wall, along with X-rays of on-mountain injuries, lending to the character of this place. Keg parties and beer discounts coupled with a short but fresh menu round out the experience. The Tugboat Grill &

Pub offers a classic Steamboat experience with live music and a grand dance floor. Pool and foosball tables and darts offer something to do for those with two left feet.

Chill out.

Lounge in front of the fireplace, sip a cocktail and indulge your inner child by ordering a deep fried PB&J at the Saddles Bar inside the Sheraton Steamboat Resort. Or visit the newly remodeled Cabin Bar, inside the Steamboat Grand Resort. Enjoy their great happy hour featuring half-price drinks and a laid-back feel. Located in a new luxe property at the base of Mount Werner, the Truffle Pig sets the tone with an outdoor fireplace, truffle dusted fries and delicious drinks with unexpected twists. On Yampa Street, the Cottonwood Grill has a beautiful curved cherry wood bar that welcomes you to sit and enjoy Pacific Rim cuisine like tuna poke and pot stickers with specialty martinis.

Settle in.

Downtown at Carl’s Tavern, you’ll find a down-to-earth place where ranchers rub elbows with city officials and visitors become locals. With made-from-scratch comfort food, there are Colorado beers on tap and Colorado Mules served in copper mugs. At Cugino’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant, unwind at the bar with a Birra Moretti draft or try one of the bartender’s delicious concoctions during a late night happy hour.

VG 34 | ON LIN E AT WWW.ST EA MBO A T C HA MBER.C OM

Cheer on your team.

If a burger, fries and a game are your style of late night relaxing, Steamboat boasts settings fit for a true sports fan. The Tap House is a basement-level bar with more than 50 big-screen televisions, tons of game choices and famous wings. Or try Rex’s American Grill & Bar, with killer appetizers and happy hour starting at 4:20 p.m. every day. At the Steamboat Smokehouse, you can toss peanut shells on the floor while grubbing on delicious BBQ and enjoying an ice cold schooner of beer. Numerous bigscreen TVs make this the perfect hide-away for watching sports.

Boogie.

Don’t miss the Old Town Pub, a locals’ and visitors’ favorite. The drinks are stiff, the prices are spot on, and most nights you can hear live music. The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant serves infamous “limit 3” margaritas and laid-back ambiance, while just down the street is Steamboat’s only microbrewery, Mahogany Ridge, which offers live music on weekends, happy-hour specials and an array of tasty homemade beers on tap. Move and groove to live tunes at the Sweetwater Grill or the Boathouse Pub, right along side the Yampa River. For a complete rundown of bars and restaurants with a wide range of happy hour and nightlife offerings, see the Dining listings starting on VG55.

Don’t miss your chance to see the recently acquired, original Barnum & Bailey Circus poster featuring Norwegian ski jumper “Capt. Carl Howelsen,” who also introduced ski jumping and the Winter Carnival to Steamboat. The Tread acquired the poster, which depicts Howelsen “ski sailing,” during a live auction, one of only three known to have come up for auction in the last 28 years. Howelsen caught the attention of Barnum & Bailey directors in the summer of 1906 while soaring 60 feet into a pool of water from a 90-meter tower at a Chicago amusement park. After Howelsen’s time in the circus, he settled in Steamboat Springs for eight years and forever changed the history of winter sports in this community.

Lodging

Most of the lodging facilities available through Steamboat Central Reservations have been assigned quality ratings by an independent rating service. Properties are ďŹ rst placed in price categories of Premium ($$$$), Expensive ($$$), Moderate ($$) or Economy ($) based on regular season rates. A random sample of units/rooms from each property is then inspected and assigned a quality rating designation of Excellent (EX), Very Good (VG), Good (G) or Fair (F). Properties that are not part of Steamboat Central Reservations are not rated. The rating designation assigned represents the overall quality of the furnishings, materials and maintenance. Properties are compared to one another within the same price categories. Standards of quality are Steamboat-based, although national standards are taken into consideration in order to form a baseline. Conditions of the property may have changed since the time of inspection.

Outdoor Guide Cross Country Ski & Snowshoe Routes ■ 1A West Summit Loop A

3.7 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak, Blacktail Mountain quads Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 13 miles to the West Summit parking area on Rabbit Ears Pass. Route description: Begin on the north side of the road. Skiing the route in a clockwise direction is less difficult, with gentler climbs and steeper descents through open and wooded areas. Views of the Yampa Valley and the Flat Tops are spectacular. The West Summit loops and surrounding terrain are the most popular skiing areas on the Hahn’s Peak/Bears Ears Ranger District.

◆◆ 1B West Summit Loop B

4 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak Access: This route is reached by skiing counter-clockwise on 1A. Ski past the first junction with 1B and climb to the top of the ridge. At the second junction, on the ridgetop, ski 1B to the east. This route is best skied in a clockwise direction. Route description: This route has several steep ascents and descents through heavy timber and open parks.

◆◆ 1C South Summit Loop

3 miles

USGS map: Walton Peak Access: This route begins at the West Summit parking area. Park on the south side of the highway. Route description: Travel counter-clockwise for the best downhill runs. The route begins by following an old road. Woods, open meadows and some steep descents are encountered. This route connects with route 3B midway around the loop. Past this junction, the route follows the telephone lines and old highway, paralleling U.S. 40. The final portion follows the meadow edge back to the West Summit, then retraces the first segment of old road.

■ 1D Bruce’s Trail

3.1 miles

USGS map: Mount Werner Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 14 miles to the parking area on the north side of the highway. A short spur connects the parking lot to the main trail. Route description: Designed wide to accommodate both skating and traditional skiing techniques. The trail is machine-groomed in the early ski season. The upper loop provides easy skiing, while the lower loop has a moderate difficulty rating. The tight loop design and proximity to the highway make this trail a good choice for a ski workout, a short day, or for skiers wishing to remain relatively close to their vehicles.

◆◆ 2A Hogan Park Route

7 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 18 miles to the Walton Peak parking area. One way, to base of Morningside Lift. Route description: This route is recommended for experts only. If you plan to descend Mount Werner through the Steamboat Ski Area, safety straps are required. Begin on the north side of the highway just west of the large cut bank. The route crosses large open parks and many streams. Steep ascents and descents will be encountered. During heavy snowfall or whiteout conditions, the route is very difficult to follow across the large parks. Carry emergency/survival gear. If lift is not operating, climb 1 mile to top of lift, then descend 3 miles to ski area base.

■ 2B Fox Curve Loop

3 miles

USGS map: Mount Werner Access: Travel approximately 17 miles east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 to the Fox Curve parking area. Parking on north side of highway. Route description: This route has varied terrain including steep ascents and descents. Use caution when crossing Walton Creek.

◆ 3A Walton Creek Loop

1.6 miles

USGS map: Mount Werner Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 18 miles to the Walton Creek parking area on Rabbit Ears Pass. The parking area is on the south side of the highway. Route description: Begin at the knoll south of the parking lot and follow the powerline a short distance to the west. Turn south across Walton Creek and through Walton Creek Campground. The junction of route 3B is reached in the meadow south of the campground. Past this junction, the route makes a steep ascent over a ridge and down an open slope to Walton Creek and the junction of route 3C. Follow Walton Creek back to the parking area.

◆◆ 3B Par-A-Llel Route

2 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak Access: This route can be accessed from route 1C, beginning at the West Summit parking area on the south side of the highway, or from route 3A, beginning at the Walton Creek parking area. Route description: This route connects routes 1C and 3A. Skiing it west to east provides more exciting downhill runs; skiing east to west involves more climbing, though much of it is gentle. Starting at the junction of 1C and 3B (west end), the route goes up a gentle slope and drops into a stream valley. Use caution when crossing streams and beaver ponds on this route as they may be only partially frozen. Heavy timber and open meadows.

■ 3C North Walton Peak Route

3 miles

USGS maps: Mount Werner, Walton Peak Access: Travel east of Steamboat Springs on U.S. 40 approximately 18 miles to the Walton Creek parking area. Route description: This is the most popular route for telemarking. Begin at the knoll to the south of the parking area and head southeast and downhill through the trees following route 3A. Approximately 1/2 mile from the parking area is the junction of 3A and 3C. The route crosses Walton Creek and travels through wooded areas and open meadows. It connects to Forest Road 302 and follows it to the top of North Walton Peak. Opportunities for steep runs exist on the slopes of this peak. Level of Difficulty Key:

Skiing is recommended in areas north and south of U.S. 40 from the West Summit east to Walton Creek. 3. Ski routes are marked with blue diamonds on trees. Bamboo poles are used to mark the trail route through open areas when snow depth permits. After heavy snowfalls, the posts and poles may be covered with snow and not visible. 4. Routes are not groomed and have sections of steep ascent and descent. Skiers should have the skills to handle varied terrain and snow conditions before attempting these routes. The exception is Bruce’s Trail, which is occasionally groomed in early ski season. 5. Dogs’ feet may damage ski tracks. Dog droppings should be removed from the trail. Snowshoe General Information Snowshoers are welcome to use the marked cross country ski routes on Rabbit Ears Pass, but they should travel parallel to the ski tracks, not on them. Snowshoes damage ski tracks. Recommended routes for snowshoeing are Walton Peak Loop and Bruce’s Trail. Smaller loops for snowshoers may be available. Contact the USFS for details: 970-879-2299.

Backcountry permits are required for all users. Permits are available at Dry Creek trailhead or the Forest Service office in Steamboat Buffalo Pass Winter Recreation Area Springs.

To get to Strawberry Park Road from U.S. 40, turn north on Third Street, right on Fish Creek Falls Road and left on Amethyst Drive. Follow Amethyst until it turns into Strawberry Park Road (CR 36).

Safety and Etiquette Recommendations: • • • •

Snowcats have the right-of- way; snowmobiles should move to the side of the trail and pass snowcats slowly. There are many blind corners – travel slowly and be aware of others. There is no avalanche control. It is your responsibility to know snow and weather conditions and your own ability. Skiers and boarders – conserve powder. Keep your tracks tight.

Being Prepared The one common denominator of all backcountry enthusiasts is an emphasis on safety. Routt County Search and Rescue offers the following tips: • Never go alone. • Tell your friends your destination and expected time of return. Leave a note in your car at the trailhead with this information, especially if you change your plans. • Take a map and compass and know how to use them. • Know your physical condition. • Check with your doctor to see if changes in medication are recommended for high altitude or strenuous exercise. Make sure your partners are aware of any medical conditions. • Listen to local weather reports and prepare for extreme conditions. • Dress in layers and take adequate clothing. Also bring a space blanket. • Bring more water than you think you will need and plenty of food. • Take emergency rations. Carry a tin cup and a small stove or matches and fire-starting gear. Know how to use the fire-starting equipment. • Be aware of your surroundings and the weather. Regularly look backward and around you. Note landmarks and compass bearings. Keep in mind your return route. • If you get confused, STOP! Stay put and stay warm. • Adjustable poles, climbing skins, shovel and avalanche transceiver are the core components of any backcountry skier’s gear list. Practice with them and develop a rescue plan. • Buy a hiking certificate or hunting license at any sporting goods store. By doing so, you are vested in the Colorado Search and Rescue fund, which will cover the costs associated with rescue efforts, should you become lost or injured. Registering a snowmobile at any Colorado State Park office has the same effect. • Know before you go. Avalanche awareness is critical when recreating in the mountains.

Come Back Soon

A summer in Steamboat Springs is the Greatest Summer On Earth. It’s the season when Ski Town USA® transforms into Bike Town USA®, and just one of the reasons locals say, “I came here for winter; I stayed for summer.” Here are a dozen ideas to lure you back.

1 | Swim in an alpine lake or tube the Yampa River. 2 | Hike three local wilderness areas for days on end. 3 | Bike single-track trails that lie underneath all that snow. 4 | Revel in dozens of festivals – from music, fireworks, opera and art to the Saturday Farmers’ Market. 5 | Float high above the valley during Balloon Rodeo weekend. 6 | Ride the gondola to hike, picnic and bike. 7 | Soak in hot springs surrounded by wildflowers. 8 | Catch big trout from pristine mountain lakes and streams. 9 | Cruise the Yampa River Core Trail. 10 | Play cowboy at the rodeo. 11 | See the birds, botanic gardens and wildlife that left during winter.
