Vertical Arts Sponsors Steamboat Spring Winter Carnival
Now in its 98th year, we are proud to sponsor the 2011 annual Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival going on this week and continuing through Sunday, Feb. 6. There are still lots of fun activities to enjoy during the carnival, including traditional snow sports competitions at the historic Howelsen Hill Ski Area and non-traditional snow sport competitions such as ski joring (right), in which horses pull children on skis, on the streets of downtown Steamboat. You won’t want to miss Saturday’s Night Extravaganza at Howelsen Hill featuring “a winter sports exhibition, the Lighted Man, glow necklaces and torchlight parades (below), fiery hoop jumpers, an elaborate fireworks display, and much more.” Check out a complete schedule of events for more information.
The Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival is a fundraising event for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, and attendees are encourage to purchase $7 Winter Carnival buttons to show their support. Buttons are available at most events and event locations.
