Let's talk about the backcountry, baby

Reason No. 743 why I adore Steamboat: It doesn't take much snow to get the mountain in gorgeous shape. What a lovely relief to finally ski some real powder. And it is everywhere.One of the fun things about this time of year is there are so few people compared to the amount of terrain that is open, so even the 2" overnight and the…See More

Flip The Switch

 Skiing and snowboarding is a ton of fun... and thankfully we don't have to end the fun when the sun goes down anymore, because it's time for night skiing in Steamboat my friends.  We have flipped the light switch to ON for 1,100 vertical feet of night time fun!  Night skiing is a treat that I take advantage of often.  Sometimes…See More

Short and Sweet

Every day on the mountain is different. Sure, I've had more than my fair share of groomer days this year. But the weather in the mountains is complicated and it can change everything overnight. While the conditions may change for the better or worse, nothing quite beats getting to see the morning light across the valley. Even though my day only involved one run down from the gondola (I'll get to that later), just being up there is always an invigorating way to start your morning.…See More

There's no place like home

This weekend I left the valley - a somewhat rare occurrence in winter for me.  My 2 year old and I accompanied my husband on an 'adventure' to another Colorado ski resort where he had to be for work.  While it is always fun to explore and go see other places, everything about my weekend away reminded me of why I LOVE STEAMBOAT!…See More

Yeehaw! Powder Stashes in New Terrain

Hiking to coveted powder stashes is a rite of passage in Steamboat. Two fresh inches atop the 19 inches over the past three days made for the perfect conditions to open new terrain, which is exactly what happened this morning.



Here is an early gift for our loyal Straight Talk readers - Hike-To Pony terrain is where it's at! The entire Pony Express area is open as of today and covered in deep, fluffy powder; however, the lift is not running yet. So, bring your legs and…

Game Changer

After many weeks of patiently waiting and quite a few snow dances, our day has come.  While Sunday was a great powder day, today really made Steamboat feel like Steamboat again.  Last night's snow storm was a game changer... welcome to winter in the Boat!

Fresh Snow

There’s nothing more gratifying in a ski town than the sound of snow falling silently from the sky.  Shhh…. do you hear that?  Ahhh… nothing.

Flakes were falling sky as I laid my first tracks into about 3 inches of fresh this morning.  Finally, after what has been an escalating anticipation of a…

should have waited for the snow - got to Steamboat on Jan. 1 thru 9 and got Totally corned. no snow, moguls with stumps and weeds - did an awesome 180 forward flip after hitting a rock and cracked 2 ribs and broke my camcorder.

However, no worries, will be  back next yr. I just love the place.
