Steamboat A to Z: Ogle Olympians

O Ogle Olympians!

Swing by Olympian Hall on the second floor of Howelsen Lodge, where you can see photos touting Steamboat’s Olympic ties and flags depicting Olympic host countries where our athletes competed. Also tour the new Walk of Olympians (start on the corner of Fifth and Yampa streets), featuring 18-inch-by-18-inch bronze plaques inlaid into brick pavers honoring local Olympians with images and accomplishments. You also can find tributes to local Olympians on the second floor of Thunderhead Lodge at the top of the gondola, complete with a pair of Nordic jumping skis longer than anything you’ll ever ride. “The community really embraces our Olympians here,” says former Olympian Todd Wilson, now the Nordic director for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. “There aren’t many towns with such a proud Olympic heritage.”
