It seems like a blink of an eye. That it was just yesterday the first skis were strapped on, the principal trails were laid out and the ski area first took shape. This year, celebrate the amazing spirit and vision that created the Steamboat Ski Area 50 years ago and all that has evolved over that time. We celebrate a mountain that is truly legendary in its physical attributes and equally compelling in its emotional ones.With events, promotions and specials all season long, make sure to mark your calendars to be in Ski Town USA during Steamboat’s Birthday Blowout celebration taking place from January 11 through 21. Be here as Steamboat goes all out for it 50th Annivesary with fireworks, torchlight parade, free concerts and special events culminating the anniversary period with the Bud Light Cowboy Downhill on Monday, Jan. 21st.
