CITY OF STEAMBOAT SPRINGS CULTURAL HERITAGE INTERPRETIVE PLAN
grounded in interpretive themes established in the cultural heritage interpretive plan, five trailmarkers celebrate the western heritage of Steamboat Springs
Tracing the heritage of Steamboat Springs reveals the power of place, the interdependence of people and the tenacity of pursuits in sustaining a vibrant community in northwest Colorado.
The defined hierarchy of interpretive themes guided the development of the heritage markers at key locations throughout the City—Mesa School, Howelsen Hill, and the Yampa Core Trail.
Custom mono-post Cor-ten steel trailmarkers integrate interpretive panels into the western ranching landscape as well as the historic ski slopes of Howelsen Hill, and the Yampa River. And in the future, the markers will be adaptable to additional Steamboat cultural heritage locations.
