Steamboat ski season ends with events

Closing Day includes Pond Skimming competition, costumes

It wouldn’t be Closing Day at Steamboat Ski Area without the goofy getups. Skiers and snowboarders were decked out in all sorts of costumes Sunday. The guy wearing an orange tuxedo and top hat was hard to miss. So were the people in banana suits. There were little girls wearing tutus, men dressed as cowboys and women wearing bikini tops with their ski pants.
