Tried and true, never disappointing and always a fan favorite, Northwestern flowing storms are well known for bringing us big accumulations at Steamboat Powdercats.

Today was an obscure situation though. We had a forecasted Southwestern flowing storm expected to hit us lightly and we totally doubted that we were going to get anything out of it. Unbeknownst to our own naive doubts, we were totally duped today be a relentless schmattering of powder deliveries. So relentless that our cameras almost crapped out on us and our clothes were drenched in powder. The snow was so deep that every face shot had a hint of roasted chilies and hot tortilla aroma coming straight from that Albequrque New Mexican atmosphere.

Who would have thought that a storm from the land of Saguaros would crush us so well!?
