Happy Leap Day!

What are you going to do with your extra day? If you're lucky enough to spend it skiing, you're in for a great day. With 7" falling in the last 24 hours there's a lot of fun skiing to find as you explore the new snow. The sky is clear since we are in-between storms, but the sun has not quite broken through yet so bring light colored lenses for best visibility. On to the snow!…

White Out Conditions = More Snow

More storms are upon us here in the Yampa Valley. It is supposed to snow the remainder of today and into tonight which means tomorrow could be another awesome day. My first run today was West Side. After getting an inside scoop from ski patrol that groomers were the way to go this morning, I knew my plan of attack for the morning. West Side almost left me speechless this morning. I almost didn't feel grounded. The mixture of a head cold and a few fresh inches on top of freshly groomed snow…

T-to-B Groomers

Today is all about the groomers. From the top of Storm Peak to the base, the best turns of the day were found on the freshly groomed surfaces.

Today's moderate wind, storm-indicating clouds and low temps made for a fast and furious morning, although the low light certainly makes you check your speed. I wanted…

Sunday Driver

Epic Week.

 Words cannot explain what an incredible week we've experienced here in Steamboat. With close to 100 inches of snow falling in February alone, it has been a month to remember. The photos, the videos and the web postings have been amazing to see and the memories will last a lifetime. For me, I've skied in some of the deepest powder of my life. I shared great times with family and friends and had one of the best weeks of skiing ever. Steamboat is back on the map. The storm cycles appear to be…

Four feet in three days! This place has been completely transformed into a winter wonderland - and almost by surprise. There is a weather phenomenon that Local Meteorologist Joel Gratz refers to as the "Steamboat Surprise," where pure magic is responsible for ridiculous amounts of snow falling on our ski mountain. It is why we love it here.…

31" and counting...

"Day of the decade" is what one Steamboatian wrote on his Facebook post this morning, but even that doesn't do today justice. Get up here and take advantage of this historic day!


At 5am, the report declared 27 inches in 24 hours at both the mid-mountain and the summit. By 9:00am, there were 4 more reported. Simply put, it's deep out there...amazingly fun, and at times, a little bit intense. I was fortunate enough to ski with some patrollers today, who rallied hard to open up…
