Bryan and Taylor Fletcher grew up in Steamboat Springs, spending hours at the base of Howelsen Hill and on the sidewalks of Lincoln Avenue. Now, as the brothers spend a majority of their time in Park City, Utah, Fourth of July in Steamboat always symbolizes something special — the Ski Jumping Extravaganza.
