The Steamboat Skating Club is a non-profit organization that serves the figure skating community at Howelsen Ice Arena. Our members are a family of athletes, coaches and parents who are excited to share the love of the sport of figure skating with you.
The Steamboat Skating Club’s website is here to provide information about club sponsored figure skating programming that is available throughout the year. In addition, we provide information about all upcoming events and especially our annual ice show!
The Steamboat Skating Club is an inclusive organization that provides ice skaters of all abilities and ambitions the opportunity to develop personally, athletically and artistically in a positive, fun, and supportive environment.
Founded in 1994, the Steamboat Springs Figure Skating Club began when the only rink was outdoor and subject to weather and equipment breakdowns. Two years later, Steamboat built Howelsen Ice Arena, and over the years since, the skating club has hosted a wide variety of shows, exhibitions and skating events, and served figure skaters from preschoolers through adults. Our skaters have traveled to competitions around the country, and we have hosted national-level skaters during our shows.
For several years in the early 2000’s, the rink was also home to Team Volant, a 16-member Synchronized Skating Team. The team made multiple trips to regional and national competitions; the skating club grew to the point where there was also a Mini Team Volant, made up of skaters 5-11 years old.
