Annual Yule Log Hunt
December 11-22, 2017 (weekdays)
The 38th Annual Yule Log Hunt, sponsored by the Tread of Pioneers Museum and the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association, will begin on Monday, December 11. Each weekdayís clues will be posted on the museumís website and Facebook page, air on local radio stations, and will also be printed in the Steamboat Today. A new clue will be released each weekday for up to ten days, unless the log is found sooner. Please note: The clues take you on a path towards the logís hiding place; they do not describe the hiding spot itself. NEW THIS YEAR: This year's hunt will include Olympic themed clues to help celebrate the 2018 Olympics and all of Steamboat's elite athletes who compete on the world stage. Also, since many hunts have ended early before all of the clues have been released, and before clues have been describing the actual hiding spot, the log will not be hidden until the 8th clue. Remember- each clue brings you one step closer to the log's hiding spot. It is a journey from last year's hiding spot to this year's hiding spot.
