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!
After a little tease yesterday afternoon, when the clouds parted and revealed the sun
After 10 years of guiding with our Powdercats family, Matt Weingartner, the handsome stud of a man and mentor for many of us is parting ways. Today was his last day guiding with us as tomorrow he hits the road heading back to the Ipswitch where his wife and baby-to-be are waiting.
Happy Valentine's Day, Folks! This morning we were greeted with a loving gift of 12 fresh inches from Mother Nature and boy do we LOVE that!! Though the air temps were the warmest we've seen in several weeks, the snow was super fast and playful which made for a very entertaining day in the backcountry!
Today marks the official opening of all our terrain!! After this past storm our road builder, Rex, made the final push to put in the last Snowcat road which accesses the fattest aspens in Steamboat!
