After the foot of fresh dumped yesterday our crews were psyched again for today, even though we received no new snow. This morning, the mercury at Dry Lake was a nippy -4 degrees, which was even colder than yesterday – OUCH! The plus side to this cold was it sucked what little moisture was in the snow, resulting in EPIC, cold, smoky, fresh pow conditions. The cold, white clouds behind our guests as they ripped thru the fresh were a reminder to us why the snow on Buff Pass is LEGENDARY!
With plenty of light and dry snow up on the pass, we can’t wait to see what we can get after tomorrow.

It was our first double digit day here at SPC this season. 14″ on the snow stake at the cabin this morning. You know what that means? We danced and sang, high fived, whooped it up and partied all day long, ripped deep pow with newfound friends and long lost family.
At the end of the day, over beers, tradition has it that all guests depart headquarters with a golden helmet swoosh when its double digit deep. Its a badge of honor for our guests as not all guests get this honorary sticker.
Way to hit the jackpot folks. Thanks for playing.

The gift of powder keeps on giving here in Steamboat Springs as Santa’s bag was full of snow, dumping 9″ of the super fluff over the past 48 hours. Today was one of “those” days.
Temps in the high teens kept the snow extra light so faceshots were a common occurrence. Base is now up to 50″ which is a magical level for us in the backcountry business. Typically meaning most tree lines are good to go.
Thanks gang for playing with us.

This storm came in and crushed us with a blizzardy mess of snow, sleet, groppel, sunshine, wind, fog and glory. We didn’t have a cat out yesterday or the day prior so it was extra special for the 1 cat out today. Only 6 guests on the cat, so plenty of room to stretch and clean out goggles from the snow blasting in your face. Winds were hefty and mostly came in from the north so our southern aspects were money. Runs like Dingo Trees and Exhibition were crowd favorites. Snow wasn’t blower by any means but Mother Nature kicked down and we now have a solid 46″ base which makes us all very, very, very happy.
