The image is unforgettable: Cowboys on horseback with skis across their pommels cut a trail through deep powder snow. Behind them stands a weathered barn and behind the barn loom the snow-covered slopes of Steamboat ski area. The combination--Old West and winter sports--defines better than anything else the unique culture of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Steamboat: Ski Town USA chronicles it all: the struggles, the sacrifices and the successes that have come to define this mountain community. From the first pioneers who prospected for gold at nearby Hahns peak, to the founding of Howelsen Hill and Steamboat Ski Resort, to the stories of the many proud Olympians the town has spawned, this book draws deeply from the heart and soul of the Yampa Valley.
