Steamboat Springs’ smaller and more historic ski hill is letting skiers and riders make free turns all day Friday.
"Ski areas are expensive to operate," Councilman Scott Ford said Tuesday at a council workshop about the city's historic ski hill. "We're looking at how we can cap the risk."
The council on Tuesday voted unanimously to remove the $880,000 worth of stabilization work city staff wanted to do over the next two years on Howelsen from the city's capital improvement program.
The last comprehensive master plan this city adopted for the entire Howelsen Hill park talked about possible amenities ranging from a swimming pool in the summer to a bobsled and luge track.
