2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships
Feb 2 – Feb 15 all-day

The World Championships in Vail and Beaver Creek represent the largest and most impressive collection of ski racing talent in the world, second only to the Olympics. To host such an event is not only a great honor for our community and our state, but a great opportunity to the rally the nation around the sport of skiing, engage the next generation in the sport and build upon the successes of the past toward greater glory in the future. The 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships will feature three independent “pods” of events and activities on a daily basis during the two weeks of the event.  These pods will include Vail Village and Mountain, Avon and Beaver Creek Village and Mountain.  Please note that some of the events in multiple locations may overlap, depending on the day and race schedule, so plan your day accordingly.

Winter Carnival @ Downtown Steamboat Springs
Feb 4 – Feb 8 all-day

CELEBRATE 102 YEARS OF WINTER TRADITION IN STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Mention a parade and fireworks and people say that’s typical. Talk about adults on shovels being pulled down main street behind horses or skiers jumping through fiery hoops and people stop to listen. In Steamboat Springs we do things differently, and with the oldest, continuous Winter Carnival west of the Mississippi, this event is certainly no different.

Winter Carnival Street Events And Night Extravaganza

ABOUT THE WINTER CARNIVAL

Winter Carnival was started by the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club (SSWSC) as a way to help residents cope with cabin fever during the height of the Colorado winter season.

The event continues to this day as a way to celebrate winter; as a reason for neighbors to gather; and as an opportunity for everyone to experience a piece of Ski Town USA® history and tradition.

FUN FACTS AND HISTORY

 

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Saturday and Sunday highlight the event with the Winter Carnival Street Events and the Night Show Extravaganza. The Street Events feature local Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club kids being pulled on skis behind horses right down main street in downtown Steamboat. A crowd favorite, the “Donkey Jump”, sends kids soaring off a jump for up to 40, or even 50 feet.

The Street Events will also feature the Winter Carnival Rodeo Clown. JW Winklepleck, Rodeo Clown/Barrelman, will energize the crowd at the street events both Saturday and Sunday.

Winter Carnival Shovel Race Snow Biking

On Saturday, the Night Extravaganza on Howelsen Hill is lit up with colors as Winter Sports Club athletes flip through the air off the jumps while others descend down the mountain leaving a red glow outlining perfect ski turns.

Winter Carnvial Hashtag

The last down the mountain is always the twinkle light wrapped Lighted Man with roman candles shooting out of his backpack, which makes for a spectacular opening act for the fireworks show to close out the night.

See below for more details on the street events and full event schedule for Winter Carnival.

Sponsorship

With the aim of maximizing benefits for sponsorships and streamlining the process for event partners, the Chamber believes that combining sponsorship for both the Winter Carnival Night Extravaganza and Street Events will provide our members and the local business community with increased visibility, and a more streamlined process to become a sponsor of Winter Carnival. Our events team will partner with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club and will continue to produce the classic downtown Street Events on Saturday and Sunday, while the SSWSC will take the reins of managing sponsorship for the entire 2015 Winter Carnival. For more sponsorship information please contact Lane Malone, Director of Development for the SSWSC at (970) 879-0695, ext. 115 or [email protected].
