February 7, 2010
97th annual Winter Carnival schedule

11:30 a.m. Diamond Hitch Parade
The diamond hitch consists of at least four skiers. The skiers hold on to points of a rope tied in the shape of one or more diamonds. Animals, people or vehicles may pull the skiers down the snow-filled streets.
1 p.m. Pro Alpine Ski Flying Finals
This is a must-see ski jumping event with participants launching off of the K114 “Big Hill” on Alpine skis and boots, rather than the usual ski jumping equipment.
1 to 2 p.m. Parent Child Downhill
Everyone is a winner in this noncompetitive, fun event. An adult and child ski together through Howelsen Hill’s terrain.
All events leading up to the Diamond Hitch Parade are part of the street events on Lincoln Avenue. The Pro Alpine Ski Flying Finals and Parent Child Downhill are at Howelsen Hill. A Winter Carnival button is required for carnival events; buttons are available for $7 at any event or at many local businesses. Call the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club at 879-0695 for more information.
