Winter Carnival: Carnival traditions steeped in Steamboat Springs history

A lot of Steamboat Springs history is wrapped up in the traditions of the Winter Carnival. The Diamond Hitch Parade showcases the Yampa Valley’s ranching roots. The Steamboat Springs High School Ski Band helped put Ski Town USA on the map and give it its name. And the Lighted Man, snow sculptures and other events throughout the weekend all add to the charm of the Winter Carnival and Steamboat Springs.
