As we drop into 2019, we are reminded of how precious each and every turn is, how special the experience we get to share on Buffalo Pass is and how treasured our lives
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.
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.
Santa came early this Christmas Eve bearing the gift of blower POW (a fresh 6'' overnight) and high levels of psych!! The snow continued to come down from the heavens all day which ended up giving us an additional 2'' or so up on the mountain.
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.
