The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club Show
Meet our Ski Jumping & Nordic Combined Program Director Todd Wilson, who just so happens to be a two-time Olympian who stumbled into coaching as a way to temporarily give back to the sport he loves so much. 30 years later, he has given back more than he could have ever imagined.
Meet Decker Dean, Steamboat’s 100th Olympian! Decker joins us from Norway, where he’s training and competing after his 2022 Olympic debut in Beijing. Decker grew up in Steamboat, found jumping along the way and at 22, is officially a professional ski jumper, training and competing around the world.
