A Toast To Our New Year

Happy New Years powder people! It is the end of an era, 2019 is over and the teen's are leaving us behind as we blast into the Deep Twenty's. We celebrated today as we do, lapping up the powder with laughter and good times with a posse full of wonderful people and big smiles all on our faces.  This past year was one of our best here at Steamboat Powdercats.  Beyond our guests being the best ever, and our guide team rocking it, we enjoyed one of the deepest snow seasons of the decade.  After 2011's epicness, 2019 was as good as it could be with Mother Nature dialing us in with storm after storm.  If we could replicate the freshness of 2019 year after year we would do so.

2019/2020 Season Kickoff!

We kicked off our 37th season today.  It's been way too long since we last got to play on the pass.  We had our new cat "Nala" out today with a ripping crew of repeat guests and loads of guides.  After a 10-day training of our 6 new guides and an outstanding mechanic, we are very stoked to get this season rolling.

Out With A Bang!

Well, that's a wrap, folks! Today was, unfortunately, the last day of glorious guided backcountry cat skiing for the 2018/2019 season. That boils down to 108 days of operation. Each of our cats ran for approximately 750 hours this season, and they provided all of us nearly 50,000 snowcat runs!!!

Fun In The Sun Continues

Day two of enjoying our recent refresh and boy does it feel good to drop some layers and get a little sweat on while ripping up our terrain before the season is over! Though the end is near, we have countless days to reflect on that were nothing short of EPIC.

Back In Action!

The fresh snow we received, on top of the sun crust from last week, was skiing SUPER fast and with the terrain being completely untouched, we had a heck of a day!! From wide open faces on the south/east ridges to tight pines with scattered cliffs on the north, we skied it all!

Out Like A Lamb

The month of March has developed just as they said it would! We started off with back-to-back snow storms and cold temps and are just starting to mellow out with sunny skies and some warmer temps.

Red Wing Blackbirds, Moose and Powdercats

Spring is nearly upon us.  Tomorrow is officially the first day of one of our favorite seasons in NW CO.  Where else can you go skiing, fishing, kayaking and biking in same day?We had our last 3 cat day today and all of us went up top to Soda Mountain.  We do this when our snow gets locked down in our lower elevations and have to seek the goods up high where the powders live.

Looking Ahead

As we enter our last week of operation on Buffalo Pass and get closer to the end of the 2018/2019 season altogether, we start to look ahead and plan our off season adventures.
