Lunch with Leif

A talk with Leif Howelsen, son of Carl Howelsen. Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear from Leif Howelsen, son of Carl Howelsen. Bring a friend and bring a lunch! After "ski sailing" for the Barnum and Bailey Circus, the "Flying Norseman," as Carl Howelsen was know, came to Steamboat Springs in 1913. The Norwegian stone mason started the tradition of Winter Carnival, built the first ski jump on Howelsen Hill, set ski jumping records, and was instrumental in introducing ski jumping and recreational skiing to Colorado. In 1914, he organized the nationally recognized Steamboat Springs Winter Sport Club. For his many accomplishments, Howelsen was named to the National and Colorado Ski Hall of Fame. No RSVP required.
