Temperatures have been cold the past few days in Steamboat! There was a temperature inversion today however, and it was about 10 degrees warmer at mid-mountain compared to the base. The days have been sunny and clear, with the next chance for snow being on Saturday night and Monday morning. Trails have become thin in places with rocks poking through many trails, so if you received a new snowboard or pair of skis for Christmas, hold off on riding them until the base has improved!
With large crowds currently on the mountain, we recommend skipping the gondola line in the mornings and instead taking Christy to Thunderhead to make it to the top, it is much quicker!
To catch some rays, head over to sunnyside (Sundown and Sunshine lifts) and enjoy the Colorado blue bird skies!
Vagabond runs make for some fast and enjoyable groomer laps.
Keep your snow dances up and lets get a better base going!
