Snowcat Skiing at its Finest – Colorado Style

Snowcat skiing and riding with Steamboat Powdercats is a unique experience, one that may reward you with the best, on snow day, of your life. Though Mother Nature holds the cards to how powder-rich your day will be, we’ve put together a system of professional backcountry guides, plush snowcats and a dialed up infrastructure that should provide you with an excellent day in the Colorado backcountry.

We are very fortunate to call Buffalo Pass our home base. Conveniently located just 25 minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs and the Steamboat Ski Area, Buffalo Pass is known as Colorado’s deepest annual snowpack and has a multitude of north, south, east and west facing zones. Combine this with the famous Champagne Powder® that we are blessed with here in Northwest Colorado and we couldn’t have asked for a better location to offer up the Steamboat Powdercats experience.

Powder For The People

January 28th, 2020|

Powder days make our world spin round and round.  Without it, out lives would be hard packed, bumped out and much less glorious.  After yesterday and todays storm, the powders were fresh and deep and all up in our way.  A 10" layer of snow laid wait for us and our people were once again blown away by the powder party we get to have.

COWABUNGA!

With MLK Day being the most popular day of the year to ski and to avoid having any FOMO (fear of missing out), we did the same! Sunny skies, warm temps made for some mid-winter spring skiing. Feels pretty good to drop a couple layers, open up some vents, and feel the sun your face every once in a while but I'm sure ready to get back to business tomorrow when the flakes hopefully start flying again.

Federal Holiday you say? Let’s go skiing!

5-feet in the past week!

January 15th, 2020|

When life is good, it is real good.  When things are turned on they are ON! The snow gods have certainly been good to us this past week with 5-feet of snow dumping in and around Buffalo Pass.  Plus, since December 24th we have only seen the sun on 6 days.  Say what?   Now, with this said, we did get some wind yesterday which beat down some of our aspects, but rest assured life and powder skiing goes on as we have plenty of terrain to search it out and find the goods.
