For the first time in years, Steamboat resort has a 100” base at the summit of the mountain. Nearly 27’ of snow has accumulated at the top of the mountain this season! This past weekend was incredible, with 24” falling on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday brought about a foot of wet, and heavy powder which was followed on Sunday with another foot of light and fluffy champagne powder! Snow continued to fall all day, and conditions were amazing everywhere on the resort. We saw a break in the storm on Monday, with plenty of leftover powder and blue bird skies! Today has been sunny again, although some clouds seem to be rolling in. We should see some more snow tonight, and the storm should continue all week with the best chance for powder on Thursday morning.
You really cannot go wrong right now on the resort. Wherever you choose to ride, there are still plenty of powder stashes and soft turns to be had! This season has been one of the best snow seasons we have seen in years. The snowfall has been extremely consistent with a new storm appearing almost every week.
If you plan on skiing or even snowshoeing in the backcountry, please be aware of the extremely high avalanche danger across Colorado! Research the area you plan on visiting and check for avalanche warnings at https://avalanche.state.co.us/.
Stay safe and happy skiing!
