And so it begins, our 2014-15 Powdercat season is a go!
After an interesting early part of December where we didn’t receive much snow, the faucet turned on last Saturday night and since then we’ve received around 2 feet of the season saving snow. For those who aren’t here in the valley, after a huge 3-5 feet of snow just before Thanksgiving, we were dealt a not so kind, rain crust that really put a damper on things. Seriously, it wasn’t just a rain crust, but more like an ice skating rink layer on the surface of the snow that derailed our staff training and got us thinking about bad things like postponing our opening.

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.
