Surf's up Steamboat! The Big Kahuna hit Steamboat over the past couple of days and another 14 inch wave of fluffy powder fell over the past 24 hours.  A 41" typhoon of Champagne Powder® has fallen over the past three days and as I write this, there is no sign of this snow letting up!

Dropping into Huffman's on my first run, the boot-high fluffy powder put an instant perma-grin on my face.  I employed the "layback" move and my skis bobbed and floated over pillows of white creamy perfection.  Staying in the Sunshine area, my next run down Kuus' Cruise (Priest Creek Lift Line) held the best powder turns I've skied all season.  The wind created funky wind lip rip curls that I used to launch off the ground to land in an explosion of pow pow all around me. 

Like confetti, the snow fell in bucketloads all morning around me as I explored around the mountain.  The best snow I found was from the top of the Four Points Lift to the bottom of the Gondola.  The winds were cranking up top, which created somewhat gnarly rippled waves of snow.  From mid-mountain and down, the visibility was better and the snow was floaty and soft.  Grab a partner and ski Steamboat's famous aspen glades for the best turns.  Twilight and Twistercane (the trees between Hurricane and Twister) are not to be missed today!  Waist-deep patches of powder paradise were abundant.  More snow is predicted to fall over the next couple of days and the sking this season has not been better.  It's time to make the pilgrimage to ski the Big Kahuna!

 

Aloha from Powder Paradise,
