SSWSC Appoints New Athletic Director


Jon Nolting Named Athletic Director of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club
Jon NoltingSteamboat Springs, CO - The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club (SSWSC) announced today that Jon Nolting, the former Sport Education Director for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, will be joining the SSWSC as its new Athletic Director effective June 15, 2015. “We are thrilled that Jon will be joining the SSWSC leadership team,” said Jim Boyne, executive director of the SSWSC. “Jon brings broad perspective on international athletic and coaching best practices. His philosophy on long-term athletic and character development are aligned with our vision of creating champions, on and off the mountain. We are looking forward to bringing Jon’s skill and expertise to the SSWSC’s athletic programming, and are excited to propel our focus on the professional development of coaches as role models and mentors to our athletes,” said Boyne.

Jon Nolting brings 19 years of experience in club and athletic leadership, coaching and education, 9 years with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association. He has spearheaded national club and coach education and certification systems in the sports of Alpine, Cross Country and Freestyle skiing, Nordic Combined, and Snowboarding. He has also led significant efforts at the national level implementing best practices in athlete and coach development. Nolting holds a bachelor of science degree in applied mathematics from the University of Colorado, School of Engineering, and a minor in economics.

"I am honored to be joining the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, and I believe strongly in its mission of inspiring the pursuit of excellence and empowering members of this community to achieve their personal goals in athletics and in life through participation in sport,” said Jon Nolting. “I look forward to continuing to enhance the quality and consistency of SSWSC athletic programs, and to partner with our discipline directors and coaching staff to bring continuous professional development to our coaches," said Nolting.

Sarah Floyd, who formerly served as SSWSC’s Athletic Director for the last 16 years, has been appointed Assistant Executive Director working with Jim Boyne to implement SSWSC’s strategic plan, as well as focusing on strategic priorities and enhancing community partnerships. “Sarah Floyd has been instrumental in the success of the SSWSC and has capably worn many hats during her long-standing tenure. We both believe that Jon’s expertise will elevate our capabilities in the areas of athletic programming and coach education. This will allow Sarah to focus her time with me on strengthening our strategic and operational effectiveness, as well as on improving our relationships with community partners such as our local schools,” Boyne said.

The Nolting family is very familiar with Colorado and Steamboat Springs. Jon, his wife Darlene and their two children are excited to make Steamboat Springs their permanent home.

Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club Announces New Alpine Training and Competition Venue at the Steamboat Ski Area

Venue New with Arrow
Long heralded as one of the best winter sports clubs in the US, the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club (SSWSC) will elevate its training capabilities with the addition of a championship-caliber Alpine Training and Competition Venue located at the Steamboat Ski Resort. Work on the venue is expected to break ground early summer 2015, with plans for opening the course to athletes in November 2015.

“The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club has a 100–year tradition of training great athletes and leaders,” said Jim Boyne, executive director of the SSWSC. “Our world class facilities, combined with unparalleled community support, have allowed us to build an Olympic heritage unlike any other club. This new venue is a key component in ensuring that SSWSC remains one of the most successful and competitive winter sports clubs in the nation.”

World-class coaching can only go so far without the facilities to support the athletes’ skills. The Alpine Training and Competition Venue at Steamboat Ski Resort will allow local alpine, telemark and alpine snowboard athletes to excel by giving coaches the ability to control on-mountain conditions and the firmness of the snow surface, which is considered THE critical factor in modern ski racing. Alpine athletes who were previously forced to travel to other ski resorts to train on courses with competitive snow surface, proper course length, and ideal terrain will now be able to remain in the Yampa Valley while achieving their training and racing goals. This new venue complements the current SSWSC facilities by serving the direct needs of the alpine racing programs, while freeing up room on the slopes of Howelsen Hill to better serve both the club’s programs, as well as recreational skiers.

“We are known as Ski Town, U.S.A. because of the world class facilities found in Steamboat,” said Chris Diamond, president and chief operating officer of the Steamboat Ski Resort & Corporation. “The addition of this new venue for the Winter Sports Club is a natural progression for our community and will nurture the next generation of winter sports athletes.”

Howelsen Hill has been the main training ground for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club for more than 100 years, as well as access to terrain at the Steamboat Ski Resort. Through these strong partnerships, competitive level facilities are in place for club programs, notably Nordic Combined and Freestyle. These venues have not only helped train the club’s athletes and attract the highest level of competitors, but have allowed Steamboat to host numerous events. The SSWSC hopes the new training facility will attract elite athletes for training, similar to the mogul course at the Park Smalley Freestyle Venue on Voodoo trail at the Steamboat Ski Resort, and allow Steamboat to host high level alpine racing competitions.

“The new venue has ripple effects for the community,” says Boyne. “Not only can we provide world-class training facilities to support our athletes as they pursue their goals, but by bringing in more alpine events Steamboat receives world-wide exposure and an economic boost.”

The new championship caliber alpine course will be located at the Steamboat Ski Resort to the skiers’ left of the Sitz and See Ya trails and will be dedicated primarily for the use of SSWSC athlete and competitors for training and competition. To finance the new venue, SSWSC has launched the Creating Champions campaign with a goal of fundraising $2.35 million. SSWSC has already achieved more than 50% of its funding goal with $1.3 currently committed to the project. To support the Creating Champions Campaign please visit:
