About Howelsen Hill

Howelsen Hill is the oldest continually operating ski resort in Colorado, keeping skiers happy since 1915. Located in downtown Steamboat Springs, CO, Howelsen is known for its giant natural ski jumps. Many future and current Olympians got their start at Howelsen Hill.

Since you are already located in downtown Steamboat Springs, expect to find an authentic western town full of dining, shopping, and lodging accommodations.
