Howelsen Hill final Ski Free Day set to be held today

Howelsen Hill Ski Area will host its final Ski Free Day of the 2016-17 winter season today. The day also marks the closing day for public skiing at the ski area for the season.

For those planning to ski, snowboard, cross-country ski, ride a fat-tire bike or snowshoe, the entire Howelsen Hill Ski Area, including 13 miles of Nordic trails, is available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition, the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club will host a free learn-to-jump clinic from 1 to 3 p.m., and Winter Sports Club athletes will soar off the big jumps during a special training session, tentatively set for 10 a.m. to noon, weather permitting.

This is the last chance this season to enjoy Colorado’s historic ski area free. It’s as simple as stopping into the lodge to pick up a free ticket, which is required to access the lifts and Nordic trails. Ski Free is a partnership between the city of Steamboat Springs, Big Country KBCR 96.9 FM and the family of radio stations and the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.
