Nestled in the Routt National
Forestland near Mount Zirkel, Clark, Colorado is unspoiled
wilderness at its best. Fly fishermen love this area as well as
camera buffs and adventurers. The town was established in 1889 and
sits at a lofty elevation of 7271 feet above sea level. This small
village has an authentic general store and an old western
Clark is near the internationally
known winter ski resort of Steamboat Sorings on Mount Werner in
the Park Range. It also contains the much smaller Howelsen ski
area, located in the upper valley of the Yampa River, west of the
continental divide at Rabbit Ears Pass.
Steamboat is renowned for raising
more Olympic skiers than any other place in America. The nickname
"Ski Town USA" is only natural. This quintessential
Western town has kept its old-fashioned charm despite its fame.
