Old man and the skis: Steamboat's Winter Olympians

Advertisement

In celebration of the Olympics, the Steamboat Pilot & Today compiled a list of all winter Olympians with connections to Steamboat Springs.

The resources for compiling this list were the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club and the Tread of Pioneers Museum. The list includes Olympians who grew up here, Olympians who trained here, Olympians who moved here and Olympians from other countries who trained or lived here.

The Olympians are listed alphabetically with the years they competed and the events in which they competed. The names of athletes competing in the 2010 Winter Olympics are bold.

As much as Chris Puckett has done for SSWSC I find it hard to believe he was left off the list of Olympians. He went to the Olympics in 1992.
