More November freshies!!

Is today really the last day of November? It is so hard to believe - the mountain is COVERED and the riding is AMAZING!!! In true November fashion, today was yet another powder day. And not just a powder day, a blue bird powder day.

Last nights snowfall officially made this the snowiest November in Steamboat Ski Resort history!!!! And we also now have the biggest mid-mountain base out of any Colorado resort. I think this is the year we hit…

Happy Powder Day!

It's deep, it's light, it's my birthday!

In my 12 years living here in the 'Boat, I do not think I've ever had such nice gifts as what I'm blessed with today. It's officially the first powder day of the season, we have 12 PLUS inches of snow here, and I've been getting face shots every run.

Sing along: "It's my birthday, another face shot, it's my birthday!"

I'm so glad I could share this day with so many happy…

A Nod To Buddy

Steamboat tradition states that a quick tap on the head of the Buddy Werner statue at the top of Storm Peak is how we say "thanks" for our great snow and ensure more snow to come. Well... I must have tapped Buddy on the head at least 5 times this holiday weekend!

The early season snow has been nothing short of spectacular. I can't remember a better opening weekend than the one we are experiencing now. The early morning light…

New terrain and sunny skies

I am reminded today that I most certainly reside in Ski Town USA. Being that it's Saturday, there are groups on the mountain today of eager Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club athletes of all ages, sliding methods, and abilities. You can be quite sure that there is a future Olympian or two in those groups.

Above is an image of some "new" terrain. With the logging of…

White Friday

If you're not out shopping for the best deals, Steamboat is the place to be for a variety of great early season skiing. Cold temperatures have kept the snow in prime condition and whether you're skiing the groomers, in the trees, or looking for some fresh powder it is all out there waiting for you.

The moguls are starting to form on White Out and with this soft snow they are…

Give Thanks for Blue Skies and Corduroy

Good morning Steamboat! Yesterday we woke up to freshies and Champagne Powder on Opening Scholarship Day, and this morning we awoke to frigid temperatures and bluebird skies. There are always two bonuses to below zero temps: It's usually warmer at the top of the mountain, and the snow is our favorite 'hero corduroy.'

Today was no exception. As I rode… Continue
