It happened again. Our beloved snow has returned to our lives. On Saturday, September 24, 2016 our first snow report of the season occurred.
The storm came in on Friday afternoon with rain down in the valley and cold temps up top. It was a soggy mess at the base all day Friday and Saturday with snow line right under the gondola at Steamboat.

Now that temperatures are cooling off in the Yampa Valley and we tip toward fall, it is really starting to feel like FACE SHOTS and FRESHIES are coming. Soon enough, our Aspen and Oak trees will be tipping to orange and yellow, daily frost will appear in the mornings and then WHAM a cold front will move in and drop the season’s first layer of white gold.
Not sure how prepared we are for this first storm as summer in NW Colorado is AMAZING! But, it’s coming and we can’t stop it and we love it.
In preparation, we have been busy since early August booking 1550 seats thus far (THANK YOU!), selling off our old Scratchy the Snowcat and purchasing a newer cat while building a new passenger cabin (similar to Tigger and Felix’s cabins). Also, with September arriving, we are gearing up for a month of cat maintenances where we dig into the engines and rehab the machines with the goal to prevent mid season breakdowns. Wish us luck.

With great pleasure and exceptional company, Eric and Kent from SPC hosted our 2016 Argentina Ski Adventure to Bariloche, Cerro Catedral and Baguales Snowcat Skiing from August 27-Sept 3, 2016. With 6 SPC guests along for the ride, we were blessed with great snow, cold temps, exceptional services from Baguales, SGT and their local guide Mauri Cambilla, as well as some super gung-ho guests.
