"A dusting at the top.  No snow-making til likely after Nov 1.   A-basin has the advantage of a base almost 4000 feet higher than  Steamboat. "

On our way!

Yea!!!!   We leave Cleveland tomorrow morning at 6:40 a.m. on our way to Steamboat.  Our first trip out west.  I don't care that we have to get up at 3 a.m.!   I was excited to see Steamboat Straight Talker's post that is is snowing!   Our weather is so warm here that our little local places cannot even open yet.  Those that have, only have two or three slushy runs open.  So...  Monday will be the day to get our ski legs under us!   See More

"Hi We live at not far above sea level in the UK. If you are relatively fit, drink plenty of water (worth avoiding alcohol for a few days), try and eat regularly, take it easy for the first few days and have a few ibuprofen (or whatever…"

" As the others have noted, Steamboat is at a lower altitude than most western ski resorts, there is much less of a problem with Altitude Sickness. Stay hydrated, relax the first day (or two), go easy on the alcohol and you should be fine. Since…"

"Agree w/ Michele's recommendations.  I would also suggest taking it easy the day of your arrival and skiing only a half day on your first full day here.  I wouldn't suggest the oxygen cans.  They're unnecessary, …"
