Grand County's county seat, the small town of Hot Sulphur Springs has played an important part in the history of the area. Named for the hot springs that line the canyon along this stretch of the upper Colorado River, the area was first visited by passing Ute and Arapaho hunting parties who called the area "big medicine." White trappers and hunters first visited the hot springs in the early 1800s, and by the turn of the century, the town was a popular resort community. 100 years ago on December 30, 1911, two Norwegians, Carl Howelsen and Angell Schmidt, arrived in Hot Sulphur Springs after a 44-mile ski expedition. On December 31st, Hot Sulphur Springs celebrated its first-ever Winter Carnival. The Norwegians stole the show and awed the crowd with their ski jump exhibition. This event marked the first ever ski jump competition west of the Mississippi River adding to the rich skiing heritage of Hot Sulphur Springs.

Today, the small town just east of Kremmling is home to one of the finest resorts in Colorado that has 23 pools and welcomes young and old to bathe in the warm, soothing waters that made Hot Sulphur Springs famous. For more information on activities, attractions, and accommodations in Hot Sulphur Springs visit their website.
