Steamboat has produced more Winter Olympians than any other town in North America.

Steamboat-Ski Town, U.S.A.® is known around the globe for producing more winter Olympians than any other town in North America, a record 88 and counting. Including the 2014 Games, Steamboat’s Olympians have represented twelve different countries, made 151 Olympic appearances during 19 Winter Games. The following 2014 Olympians are currently training or have trained with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club and will compete in the upcoming Winter Games in Sochi.

Steamboat’s tradition dates back to the 1932 Olympics in Lake Placid, NY, at which the Valley’s first Olympian, John Steele, placed 15th in Nordic jumping. Nelson Carmichael became the first Steamboat Olympian to win an Olympic medal, a bronze in moguls at the 1992 Games. During the 1998 Nagano Games, Steamboat Olympian Shannon Dunn-Downing became the first American woman to win a medal in snowboarding. In 2002, Travis Mayer rocketed onto the scene and brought home the silver medal in mogul skiing. And at the 2010 Games in Vancouver, the US Nordic Combined team made history when they won Olympic medals in all three events entered.
