Ski Free Sundays
Sunday Funday is taken to an entirely new level as Howelsen Hill hosts Free Skiing on every Sunday throughout the winter season. Now your family can enjoy the slopes for absolutely FREE at North America's Oldest Operating Ski Area and Steamboat's original ski area.
Steamboat Springs City Council approved free skiing on Sundays and ushered in Colorado’s most affordable Sunday lift ticket as a way to celebrate the community's Olympian spirit and honor the tradition of this historic ski area. Skiing since 1915, Howelsen Hill has produced nearly 100 winter Olympians and has helped generations of Steamboat residents enjoy the sport.
During the season, it’s as easy as simply stopping into the lodge to pick up your free ticket, which is required to access the lifts and the Nordic trails (cross-country, fat bike and snowshoe) on these special ski free days. Over the winter, specific Sundays could see limited or closed terrain due to special events or competitions. In addition, select Sundays will also see Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club training on a portion of the Face.
