Looking out the window first thing this morning, I expected it to be a cloudy day wtih some possible snow later. I grabbed my low light goggles and headed over to the Gondola. To my surprise, the sun really broke out, and it has become another beautiful blue bird day in Steamboat.

Frio. Froid. Frigid. No matter which language you say it in, it won’t change the fact that temperatures are low this morning. Even a fancy French accent can't change it, but there is a certain je ne sais quoi, a joie de vivre when you get to carve turns under the clear Colorado sky.Continue

It's a good day to be on the mountain.
Yes, early season conditions may exist and we could probably use a little snow. Some runs are better than others, but many of the runs are skiing nicer than I expected allowing my skis to carve into the soft snow. No matter the run, I have to say I was smiling the whole time this morning, having a great time flying down the mountain with my skis on and some fresh Steamboat air in my face.
