About Master of Chaos

Been fired up on all things Steamboat Powdercats since 2000. Love the daily adventure, the relationship with our guests, our team and their families and the community that is the Steamboat Powdercats Nation.

Winter Has Arrived!

This past Saturday the snow machine turned on for us here in Colorado and it really hasn't stopped since.  The Steamboat Ski Area reported its first recordable snow of the season on Sunday, October 23, with 3-inches.  On Monday, another 9-inches dropped and it's snowed every day since. Now that's the way to get this winter going. This now culminates our Powder Prediction Contest and we have a winner who picked the exact amount and date.  Of the 100+ predictions we received from you, only 5 picked October 23rd, and only 1 person picked 3 inches.

Powder Prediction Contest

Predict the first snow in Steamboat and win a free day with Steamboat Powdercats for the upcoming season. Now that temperatures are cooling off in the Yampa Valley and we tip toward fall, it is really starting to feel like FACE SHOTS and FRESHIES are coming. Soon enough, our aspen, oak and cottonwood trees will all have changed to red, orange and yellow, daily frost will appear in the mornings and then WHAM a cold front will move in and drop the season’s first layer of white gold.

Thank you for the memories – Booking plan for next winter

We love what we do, where we do it, and who we get to do it with, so it’s bittersweet for us to put the snowcats away, knowing that we won’t get to share our passion for searching out fresh tracks with you for another 8 months. We appreciate your wanting to come back for a visit. Our partnership in the powder is a beautiful thing. Here is the plan as to how we are making bookings for Winter 2022/23, our 40th Anniversary Season!

Our Season of Snow

As a member of the coveted Powdercats Nation, we present to you today our annual State of the Powder Address. We hope this address comes at a time in your season when you are deep in the powder, tired from seeking out endless fresh lines, and eager to get after it again, and again, and again. As a diehard Powdercatter, you have been paying attention to how our season has been going.  More than likely you have already visited us and can read this with a smile knowing that our time has come.

State of the Powder

We feel it necessary to let everyone know how conditions are fairing up on Buffalo Pass.  It's been nearly a month since we last received any substantial snow.  The late December to early January storm was epic and set us up nicely for the entire season, but since then it just hasn't snowed much at all. The short and mid-term forecast is also looking dry so if you are booked on a trip with us from now till mid-Feb, here is what to expect.

Game time!

Today was our first mission up to Buffalo Pass for the 2021-22 season.  We rallied up on sleds to check out snow conditions and see what Mother Nature has provided us.  No skiing today, just sledding around, poking in the snow, checking on the cabin, and basic, snow safety exploration.
