Today we give a big shout out to Dave Genchi, who worked with us from 2003 till 2006. For our long time guests, you all remember Dave who probably took your photo while you were here and also built many of the video's you may see on YouTube. Today is the 5th anniversary of his life changing accident. We've posted some of of his old video's here below and wanted to post this from Dave:
SPC's founder and visionary powderhound Jupiter Jones passed away this weekend. We wish his family, his friends and acquaintances all the power in this difficult time. "We went heli skiing and some friends on the trip convinced us to purchase a snowcat and give it a try in Steamboat" Jupiter told us in 2013 when we were organizing our 30th anniversary celebration. It was 1983, when Jupiter and Barbara Jones started Steamboat Powdercats. It was a time when the Steamboat Ski Area was booming and started to really market it's Champagne Snow™ as the lightest snow in our skier universe.
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.
We are doing it again folks, our fleet of Armada JJ's that we have had the past 2 season must go. We have 155, 165, 175, 185 and 195's available. Cost is $400 per ski with demo bindings. $50 for shipping or pick them up at our office for free.
A little Spring update for everyone is necessary now that Buffalo Pass has officially topped a Colorado record for snow accumulation, making it truly the deepest snowpack in Colorado. That's right, the Tower Site, which measures remote snowpack levels for the Natural Resources Conservation Service, recently hit a level never recorded in the history of record keeping here in Colorado.
