History of the Touring Center

The Wiik family has contiguously owned the Steamboat Ski Touring Center since 1980. Prior to acquiring the touring center, their cross-country operations were located at the Scandinavian Lodge, Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Sven Wiik at Steamboat Nordic Center, December 2010Sven Wiik, a native of Sweden, immigrated to the United States in 1949 to be employed by Western State College as Professor of Health and Physical Education. He also accepted the offer to be the US Olympic Nordic coach. His dream was to own and operate his own training center. In 1968, he and his wife Birthe and daughter Birgitta moved to Steamboat Springs to build the Scandinavian Lodge and Mt. Werner Training Center. For twenty years, athletes from many countries trained at the center.

The Wiiks had the opportunity to expand their operation to the current location at the Ski Touring Center. Birgitta Wiik Lindgren runs the center, continuing the family history. We are currently operating in our 32rd year. The Ski Touring Center has been the host of:

  • Jr. Olympic Championships
  • National Masters
  • NCAA Championships
  • Nordic Combined Olympic Tryouts
  • World Class Training Area for Nordic skiers
  • Pre-Olympic Training Site for foreign teams
  • Many local and regional races
