Snow On The Horizon

2018-12-30T17:19:52-07:00December 30th, 2018|

A possible 8'' of snow is projected to accumulate over this evening/night so we all need to stay optimistic and hope that the weather man has underestimated the in coming storm...we need to start 2019 on the right foot (or feet of fresh pow)!

Cold Side of The Mountain

Starting off the morning at a blistering 3 degrees, we bundled up before heading to Buffalo Pass for another cloudless day of skiing! To our delight the cold didn't stick around for too terribly long and layers were shed, or maybe I'm just warm blooded. 

Best Day Yet!

Skies cleared around 10am today after Ullr provided us with four more inches of airy Champaign Powder! Once the sun poked out and made aspen tree skiing one of the most beautiful ski experiences I've ever logged on a mountain. Temps hung around the mid-twenties which, with the sun, kept visibility primo and climate balmy.

Enjoying the Gift of Powder

T'was the day after Christmas and all through the town, the spirits were high, because of the pow. Yep that's right, folks its still snowing here in "The Boat" and the skiing has been epic with an additional 8'' over the last day an a half!!

A Fitting Start for Day 1

What a way to kick off Steamboat Powdercats 35th season.  We have the full band back together with 2 cats out, 10 staff on the snow, Rex and Phil building roads and a clean slate of freshies for us to destroy. Coincidentally today is also the Winter Solstice, along with the Ursid meteor shower and the Full Cold Moon. How fitting it is to blast off this season with such a magical alignment of mystical and cosmic powers.
