Grade school students can enjoy hot springs for free next week

Old Town Hot Springs is offering free admission to any grade school student and younger Monday through Friday during Steamboat Springs spring break, on April 23-27.

In previous years, the pools were closed for cleaning during spring break; however, this year the pools will be open for those remaining in town who need a fun and entertaining daytime activity.

Families can spend relaxing downtime in the hot-springs-fed pools during the school break at a reduced cost. Any current high school senior or younger is eligible.

The water slides are closed for the off-season.
