While the current County mask mandate has been lifted for businesses, masks can still be required for entry by each individual business. Since masks are still recommended for unvaccinated individuals including children, and we do not know who has been vaccinated, we erring on the side of caution and are still requiring masks for the museum and our programs/events.

Tours led by local Olympians. Starts at Howelsen Hill Lodge at Howelsen Hill, 845 Howelsen Pkwy. This tour explores Steamboat’s Olympic heritage; the multiple talents of Carl Howelsen; and the history of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, Winter Carnival, Howelsen Hill, and ski jumping.
