The Olympian tradition in the city dates back to the 1932 Olympics when the Valley’s first Olympian, John Steele was placed at 15th position in Nordic jumping. After that a succession of champions followed with Nelson Carmichael, the first Steamboat Olympian to win bronze in moguls at the 1992 Games, Shannon Dunn-Downing became the first American woman to win in snowboarding and on.
These Olympians say that ''the spirit to strive for greatness and the unwavering support of athletes makes Steamboat set apart from any other place in the world''. This is a culture that makes athletes struggle for global leadership. However, Steamboat is no stranger to tourists who flock there for wild adventures like waterfall hikes, fly-fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, skiing, and hot-air ballooning.
