The wait is finally over, so dust off the equipment and gear up for the one of a kind kickoff event initiating the 2017/2018 winter season at Steamboat Resort. On Wednesday, Nov. 22, Scholarship Day marks the official start to Steamboat Resorts winter season with revenues from the days specially priced $25 tickets benefiting the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club Scholarship Fund.

The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club is one of the oldest most recognized ski clubs in the United States and has been awarded three times by the United States Ski & Snowboard Association as Club of the Year. Attendees will get to participate in a unique cause that’s helped raise more than $1,000,000 since 1991 for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club Scholarship Fund. For over 25 years, the Scholarship Fund has existed to provide financial support to deserving local youth participating in Winter Sports Club programs.
