Ski Free Sundays

Ski Free Sundays 2017 to 2018 ski season beginning December 17, 2017

Steamboat Springs City Council approved free skiing on Sundays back in October, ushering in Colorado’s most affordable Sunday lift ticket as a way to celebrate the upcoming Olympic winter season and honoring the tradition of this historic ski area. Skiing since 1915, Howelsen Hill has produced nearly 90 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.
