Cary replied to Andrew Roberts's discussion Ski Guide
"Powdercats is the way to go if you can afford it.  Opposed to a couple of backcountry runs you will get up to 15 - 18 and a good lunch at a cabin in the woods.  I have done it twice, and both time we got 18 runs (untracked). …"

Cary replied to Zac Barbiasz's discussion Spring Break
"Like may places weekends can be busier.  However, conditions probably have more of an effect on crowds.  A 24 inch snow brings people out of the wood work.  Today was really busy (Presidents Day weekend) and there were some long…"

Cary replied to Lisa's discussion Snow Conditions
"Best advice for this year - GS racing skis with good edges.  If the old 198's were stiff, they might be the ticket for this year (so far).  BTW - if you haven't see this site, it is pretty good"

Cary replied to Brandon Fisher's discussion Inexpensive One Night Lodging
"Most of the major chains have hotels in Steamboat, Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, La Qunita, etc...  It looks like the Holiday Inn runs about $130/night in mid-Feb.  That tells me you might find something running about $100/night if you shop a…"

Cary replied to Clay Riner's discussion off to a good start or slow start?
"We are off to a slow start to the year.  However, that is good news.  It has been my experience that when we have below normal November - early December, the rest of the year is usually very good.  If we have above average snow in…"

Cary replied to skiwoods's discussion The Future of Steamboat Ski Area
"I am disappointed that they decided against the second lift on Pioneer Ridge.  That would have open up some fun terrain and been longer than Pony Express.  It was permitted, and just needed to be built.  However, I understand that the…"

Cary replied to Jacque Jones's discussion EXTREME TERRAIN!!!!
"Don't have any pictures, but if it is your first double diamond I might recommend East Face.  The steepest part is a open bowl so if you are in over your head, you can traverse down.  To the skiers right it gets gentler.  If that…"

Cary replied to Joselyn Richter's discussion Suggestions for overnight location from Denver to Steamboat
"Actually, I'll retract the Leadville thing.  While interesting, the town is the highest city in North America at over 3,000 meters.  It is not a good choice for starting your trip given that it is about 800 meters higher than the…"

Cary replied to Joselyn Richter's discussion Suggestions for overnight location from Denver to Steamboat
"Unfortunately, the winter is not a great time for viewing wildlife other than moose, elk and deer.  Your best bet for seeing our hoofed friends may be around Steamboat.  Seeing them driving up here is not always a good thing, because they…"

Cary replied to Joselyn Richter's discussion Suggestions for overnight location from Denver to Steamboat
"When driving to Steamboat from Denver, the route jg atl described is the best alternative.  There are some great views of the Gore Range driving north out of Silverthorne assuming the weather is good.  The only reasonable alternative to…"

Cary replied to jg atl's discussion Ski Area Improvements for Upcoming Season
"I believe they open a valve and its diverted back underground.  For the winter, I suspect they will fill the depression with snow from the snow guns.  They do that in a few places already to shape the base area."

Cary replied to Drew Forzley's discussion Lift Service in the Canyon??
"That would be a long haul (years) to get permitted by the Forest Service.  The best we can hope for is that the second Pioneer Ridge lift gets built.  That is already permitted."

Cary replied to Chad's discussion East Face
"They are very different from Strom Peak face.  The double diamonds are steeper with different snow conditions.  I don't even know if I would characterize them as a steeper Shadows or Closets.  Yea, from what you describe, I would…"

Cary replied to Chad's discussion East Face
"Good video, but I think there is some false advertising.  There are no aspens in No Names and those locations were pretty mild.  I did see some shots of the lower half of the first pitch on East Face. "
Feb 4, 2011
Cary replied to Chad's discussion East Face
"I spent sometime directing a first timer up there last week.  He was confident of his skill, just new to Steamboat.  So you can find people to give you pointers.  If you have never hiked up there, hike up and do Wake-Up Call down…"
