With Winter Carnival being the longest running event here in Steamboat Springs our locals know the drill when it comes to signing up their kids for our great events like skijoring, donkey jump and the street slalom. This morning registration was held at the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association for the street events. Doors opened at 7:30 a.m. and we had people waiting at the door as early as 6:30 a.m.

Now in its 96th year, Winter Carnival is a staple event in the Steamboat Springs community. This event helps to raise awareness about the great work that the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club does as well as rallying the town around our great traditions. It is truly an event that speaks volumes about our locals and visitors. The 2009 Winter Carnival will be next weekend, February 4-8th.
