Free Ski Days at Howelsen Hill start Sunday. The public is invited to ski for free at the mountain almost every Sunday through March 11th. The Ski Free Days are designed to allow more people to experience the ski area and appreciate the heritage that has shaped the character of the Steamboat community for more than a century. The free passes are available at the Howelsen Hill lodge. The Poma Lift and Pony Magic Carpet along with the expert trail and some beginner terrain will all be open for free skiing this Sunday from 10 to 4. No Nordic trails are currently open.
