Going to bed last night, we knew there was a chance of snow. All reports were pointing towards a combination of moisture and dropping temperatures. When the storm hit us around 5pm with a cold drizzle, it was game on with everything pointing towards our first snow report in the morning.
The storms that blew past us this weekend brought snow to most mountain locations in Colorado, except us. Even Cameron Pass, just one mountain range over saw snow where we didn’t. That storm was a bit of a Southwesterly flow, which as you know, doesn’t produce the best snow results for Steamboat and the Park Range, so it missed us.
This morning though things had shifted to a more westerly flow, temperatures dropped and the falling moisture finally turned to the white stuff that is so highly regarded in our world. Our first snow of the season!
We have now launched the Powder Prediction contest for this year. Join in the fun by predicting the first day it will snow on Mt. Werner (also the depth) and you may win a free day snowcatting with us this season.

There are specific rules to this contest so please review that link above. You will need to email Kent to (firstname.lastname@example.org) join in the fun. Please do as you could win the free day.

Now that we are basking in the mid summer heat wave, let’s take a moment, wipe the sweat from our brows, refocus and daydream about your next great powder day.
Though the first snow is months away, here in Colorado winter never leaves our mind. Especially today as we are now launching the 2015 reservation season. If you haven’t already, call the crew, tell the boss, find the money and throw that dart at a powder day next winter.

It’s that time of year gang. Rally your crew and pick you day for next year. Come July 1st we will launch our calendar for the 13/14 season and we hope you are on your game. As you know, we typically book about 700 seats in July from our fantastic returning troop of guests so you need to get on it. This should come as no surprise as we’ve been doing this July 1st launch for many years now and we hope to speak with you soon.
Bring it on gang!
Some things to consider:
Only rate change that is occurring this season is that December rates raise to $450/guest and $4500/private cat. This is an increase from years past but aligns December with our January and March rates that have been stable for a few years now.
July 1-7 is for returning guests looking to book private cats only.
July 8-31 is for returning guests looking to book private cats as well as individual seats or small groups.
August 1st is for all guests including our first timers.
Review our rates, calendar, FAQ’s and all other details on this website if you need.
50% deposits are required for all reservations. Review our policy here.

If there is ever a day you want to come with us its our last day 0f the season. Saturday the 29th was our final adventure into the heaven that is Buffalo Pass and the 2 cats out were set up for an amazing ride. Both groups were mostly returning guests and the guides unleashed the greatest lines ever including Success, Exhibition, Rolly Bowl, Scottie’s, The Flume, The Funnel, Cat Scratch, Scotch on the Rocks even Hangover Ridge for the first time all season.
After Friday’s crazy thunder-lightning-hail-graupel-sleet-snow storm, the conditions on the pass were exceptional, putting an emphasis on just how special Buffalo Pass is and how powder blessed we were in this 2013-14 season.
Mother Nature certain unleashed her best as well with a spectacular bluebird day. Check out the images below that Beuford captured and see just how special the experience was for us today.
This last day and our last post of the season comes with a bit of melancholy and joy as we celebrated together this amazing year. Oh how time has flashed past us once again. A big thanks goes out to our staff who truly love, love, love spending time guiding you, our guests and fans on the daily escapades that is Steamboat Powdercats. We are all crazed by the search for the fresh powder, the passion for the mountains and the camaraderie of getting out into the backcountry of Northwest Colorado.
