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.
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.
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.
Holy cow. Snowmageddon is here and is in full force. It has snowed and snowed and would you believe it...it's still snowing! During this storm cycle we've received 29'' with 22'' of that being delivered just within the last 24 hours!! Insane amounts.
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.
Predict the first snow in Steamboat and win a free day with Steamboat Powdercats for the upcoming season.
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.
Snowmageddon 2018/2019 continued to share the love of shralping powder with everyone here in the great town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. With our longest snow drought being just over a week, we've got a lot to be grateful for.
We hope we never wake up from this snowy dreamlike state we are in. 6" on the stake when we arrived at 9:00 am to the cabin this morning and another 3" fell during the day. Say what? It's as if our own fairy snow mother has waved her wand over Northwestern Colorado and her crystalized magic is falling from the heavens.
Well, folks, spring is here but winter is still putting up a hell of a fight and I think you know what team we're rooting for...Winter, DUH!
