A Letter from Sarah Floyd & Jon Nolting

As our world continues to face challenges in many directions, we are filled with gratitude for the elements that remain steady and constant. Our SSWSC athletes love the outdoors, remain dedicated to their sports and personal development, and thrive on overcoming challenges on and off the hill. Despite recent adjustments due to COVID, these basic tenets have not changed. At the SSWSC, we are proud to continue to positively impact the lives of the youth in our club and in our community, and we are grateful for the support we receive from our donors, support partners and the Steamboat Community to continue to play an important part in the lives of our athletes.

The 2019-20 winter season ended abruptly, but we had much to celebrate. Our athletes excelled in their sports and demonstrated strong community spirit through their volunteer work in our free community programs that provided every local 2nd grader, as well as English language learners in 4th and 5th grades, the opportunity to learn to ski or snowboard  at Howelsen Hill. As a club, the SSWSC was re-certified by U.S. Ski & Snowboard as a Gold Level Club, and we celebrated receiving Ski Jumping/Nordic Combined Club of the Year honors for an unprecedented fourth year in a row. The commitment and dedication of our staff was exemplified by Ben Brown, seven-year SSWSC alpine coach, who was named the nation’s Alpine Domestic Coach of the Year by U.S. Ski & Snowboard.

This annual report highlights our continued commitment to growth and development in our athletes and our coaching team. Thank you for your ongoing support. What we do at the SSWSC is more important now than ever before in the club’s history. We take our responsibility to positively impact our youth very seriously, and we invite you to partner with us in 2020-21 to continue the legacy of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.

With Sincere Appreciation,


Sarah Floyd
