Our Main Maintenance Man Rex and Director Eric spent this week at the Ski Area Vehicle Maintenance Institute (SAVMI), learning how to better care for all our kitties!
Welding, Hydraulics and charging systems were just a few of the topics discussed during this program. SAVMI not only offers seminars from some of the best in the business, but also offers some great networking opportunities to discuss issues that we all face while trying to keep the machines rolling each winter. Here’s to keeping those cats rolling next winter!!

The daily powder party for us up here at Steamboat Powdercats is almost over for the season. With only 2 more days left in our “official” season, it is looking more and more like today may have been the end of it all. And what a way to close it out.
After 27″ of snow the past two days, we took only one cat out, our Level III trip, up to pillage Soda Mountain like never before. Today was another “best ever” and a spectacular way to end this greatest season ever.
It’s been a wild ride this year with 3 of the 4 operating months (Dec, Jan and March) seeing 100″+ of new snow during each month. February we only saw 37″ total for the month which was something we wish to never see again and won’t discuss much, but the other months were as good as we could have ever asked for. Best El Nino season ever for us!

Another legendarily deep day today! White room face shots all day long. What a blessing its been to have the closing days of our season on such a great storm. Tomorrow marks our last trip of the 2015/2016 season and we are ever grateful to have deep fresh pow to close it off on. One more to go!

Take a deep breath and hold it in. As you drop into the run, you quickly realize that there’s no more oxygen to breathe when you’re this pitted in the white room. Turn after turn, faceshot after faceshot, breathing fresh air has become purely impossible. Right before you’re about to pass out, you arrive at the cat and dump all your speed in one gigantic powder turn and gasp for air.
Yep. It was that deep today. If you’re coming on last cats Thursday and Friday, bring a snorkle. You’re going to need it.
