Getting the powder game going…after an eblast last week and now this blog post.
Hoping this finds you healthy and happy, successful and loving life. We have been busy here at Steamboat Powdercats with purchasing and selling a snowcats, crafting a new passenger cabin, getting our new fleet of Armada skis in order (we have Armada JJ’s and Never Summer Snowboards for sell), we hired a new staff member named Phil Howard (Welcome Phil!) and have been up on Buffalo Pass finding lost skis and sorting out the potential for new terrain and future opportunities.
Lots going on and lots now to talk about for the 2015/16 season.

10 days ago, we thought it was all over. It was hot, it was muddy and every last bit of powder was gone. Yes, every last bit of powder was gone. There was no real snow we could count on in the forecast so with a heavy heart, we pulled the plug on the season. It wasn’t what we wanted to do but it was in fact the right thing to do. We retired the ski boots and slapped on a pair of sandals and most of us took to the Utah desert for some red dirt therapy. It was a real disheartening way to end the season…
A few days ago we heard that a storm was rolling in. We brushed it off as a mere tease. On Wednesday morning, we were greeted with 10 fresh new inches up at the Cabin! There was fresh snow to ski but no guests to take skiing! So on a last minute whim, we pulled together the few guides that were still in Steamboat and we called up some of our favorite storm chasing guests and we filled two cats for one last hoorah!
The snow today was so… so good. It was soft, it was fluffy and it was fast. We even got some faceshots! Everything about today was picture perfect. Mother nature may have been a bit rough on us the this season but we are extremely grateful she came back and let us end our season not on a hot and muddy day but rather on an epic powder day.
Thank you everybody for a fantastic season. You are why we love what we do.

We are once again getting our asses kicked by Mother Nature. We know we are not the only ones this winter feeling her wrath but it still hurts, real bad. It’s been now a week since we started cancelling most trips. We ran a few cats over the weekend with gamers but now, we are not even tempting folks with a cat ride, corn skiing and extra beer as all the soft turns have run out for us on Buffalo Pass.
We did get teased last night with 1″ of snow falling in the high country. But, rain and lightning in the Valley reminded us that Mother Nature is just toying with our dreams of getting operating again. It’s much easier booking trips than cancelling tours due to unrideable snow. Not our typical M.O.
