Cheers to an incredible year. We are so thankful to be part of this amazing thing called life and the world of POWDER. It seems to just fly by at times so never take our time here on this lovely planet for granted.
Cheers to the recent storm system we received last week was certainly the high point of our 2015 weather, blasting us out of this year with a good ole fashioned dumping.
Love what we do and that you enjoy doing it with us.
Cheers to living life large, enjoying every moment and raising a glass to those who moved on from this wonderful planet.

A day in the powder with Steamboat Powdercats can be really impactful. Its an adventure in the present moment and then it lives on as a memory that lasts for a lifetime. Whether that memory is preserved as a float mount hanging on your office wall or a classic story that you tell time and time again, we are always intrigued by what inspires our guests to walk through the doors.
When we looked around our cats today, we asked the question, “Why do you go?” It’s a simple question but the answer can sometime be a surprise. For some, it’s priceless family time ripping fresh turns together. For others it’s all about experiencing a sensation in the powder that’s legendary or enjoying the mountains and snow of the Routt National Forest. Maybe it’s the guides humor or good looks…but mostly it’s the POWDER!

There’s an old famous saying that goes a lil something like “no friends on a powder day.” We’re not sure why that became popular… because at Steamboat Powdercats, many friends on a powder day is the only way to roll.
The highlight of today was seeing complete strangers from every cat hi-fiving each other the same way we hi-five friends we’ve had for over 20 years. It was a nice reminder that if you are alone and you walk through the front doors at Steamboat Powdercats to check in for a day of powder skiing, you might not know it yet but the people around you are going to be some friends you will know for a long time.
Also, the “no friends on a powder day” at the ski area is sooooooo lame as those friends of yours will save you if you are in a tree well, stuck in the snow or just fun to be around. It’s a blessing to have friends that watch after you, pay attention and wait for you at the bottom of a run. There’s always good friends on a powder day that won’t leave you behind or call you if they can’t find you.

We crushed it today. 2 cats. AMAZING people…as usual. Wonderful time on the Buffalo Pass.
It was -17 degrees at Dry Lake this morning but due to an outstanding inversion where it’s warmer the higher you get up in the terrain, it was a balmy 25 degrees up on Buffalo Mountain.
Love these days.

Today we ran two full groups. One private cat full of some long time guests and a non private cat full of folks from all over. Throughout our terrain, you could hear the echos of people cheering and celebrating the simple love of skiing powder. And rightfully so, it was a great day to shout at the top of your lungs as you lapped up freshies down the beautiful terrain in the Routt National Forest.
