What to do if your heli-skiing trip is a no go this winter?

For all you heli-skiers who may be freaking out that you might not be going to Canada for your annual powder pilgrimage, don't worry, we are here for you. This winter with our private cat only, 6-guest maximum in the snowcat operations plan, we feel we are a great pivot if in fact travel plans for US citizens do get put on hold due to COVID-19.

Snowcat skiing in our COVID world?

There is a lot of time between now and mid-December in which time pandemic measures will certainly evolve.  We are currently evaluating and refining how we can adjust our operations in order to do our part to mitigate the associated risks of COVID-19. Given a large amount of uncertainty associated with the pandemic, we have not yet finalized these plans, but we do know that we will be abiding by any federal, state, or county mandated precautions.

Best of 2020 Season Images

With great pleasure, behold the Best of 2020 image gallery. Of the 127,464 images we took this winter, we have whittled down the mass to a manageable gallery of 500+ images for you to peruse. It took some time but for whatever reason, be it the epic face shot, the beautiful landscape, the smiling faces or the perfect crash sequence, we have created the gallery for us all to relish in one of our greatest wintery seasons ever.

Shutting Down for the Season

As of today, Steamboat Powdercats is closing our doors on the 19/20 season due to the obvious reasons.  Last night the Governor of Colorado issued an executive order requiring the closure of downhill ski resorts due to the presence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in mountain communities with limited care capacity.  We feel it prudent that we do our part and also shut down our operations.

20/21 Booking Calendar Opens on June 15th

Every year, we hear it from our guests that it is becoming harder and harder to book trips with us as our calendar fills up fast.  We applaud everyone for wanting to come and have created a loyal following of returning guests who rebook their same day of the week year in and year out. We are laying it out now so everyone knows how to rebook or get in line for next seasons powder day with us.

Back in the Snow Cycle Again

After a week of hot pow and bluebird melting, we are back in the snow cycle again.  We prefer it this way as the uncertainty of snow quality freaks us out as we have become accustomed to fresh snow, clean lines and iconic Steamboat powder.  With 7" of snow over the last 2 days and a forecast for snow for the next week, sort of, we are blessed to be on Mother Nature's good side.  Not that sunshine, t-shirts and blue skies aren't nice, it's just that we know what we get when it is snowing.

Mucho Sol

Multiple times today and yesterday we heard from our guests that the experience with us was their best day of powder skiing or snowboarding EVER. Several of these rippers are powder snobs who have chased this liquid gold all over the globe.  Be it Japan, Canada, Utah, Europe or other powder snow mecca's, it was this experience here with us that tipped them over the edge and convinced them to profess to us and their team that this was their BEST DAY EVER.

How to make a “Best Day Ever!”?

The Best Season Ever?

After yesterday's 26" in 24-hr snowfall and a 38" in the past 36-hours pounding, we have been reflecting on the significance of this powder filled season and the historic reality that we are living in.  As powder junkies we live for the moment and relish in the now.  When we get fresh snow, even a few inches, life is good.  But when we get snow like we have this season, we are all smiles and perfectly happy to know that we are living our dream. To put what is happening into a historical perspective, sit and spin on some of these statistics:
