First snow – Sept 24 – 2″

steamboat-first-snowIt happened again.  Our beloved snow has returned to our lives.  On Saturday, September 24, 2016 our first snow report of the season occurred.

The storm came in on Friday afternoon with rain down in the valley and cold temps up top.  It was a soggy mess at the base all day Friday and Saturday with snow line right under the gondola at Steamboat.

After reviewing our rules of the Powder Prediction Contest and talking with representatives of Steamboat, we have determined that the snow measurement for the contest will be 2″ for this season.

We’d like to thank all the participants who sent in predictions for this annual contest.  You guys rule!  Of the 125 or so who sent in predictions, 13 of you picked the 24th but only 1 of you picked the exact amount.

Our winner this year is long time returning guests from Ohio, John Tafuri.  You da man man! John wins a complimentary day here at Steamboat Powdercats.  He already has a private cat on the books in early Feb so it looks like John will be coming a couple times with us this season.

Thanks for playing the Powder Prediction Contest
