Hangin' tough: Linden Atkins, 2, holds on tight to her mother, Anna Lundeen, Sunday afternoon near the base of Howelsen Hill in downtown Steamboat Springs. The family was taking advantage of the last day of public skiing at Howelsen to squeeze in Linden's first day on skis. She wasn't the only one trying out new things Sunday. Many used the day to ski or snowboard at the downtown hill, while others took advantage of on-hand coaches to try out the ski jumps.
