That’s A Wrap!

March 27th, 2021|

Well folks, after a wild ride of a season (and year), we enjoyed our last day of powdercattin' with some wintery weather and 9" inches of fresh with some more throughout the day for some free refills!! We had our fingers crossed for some soft landings on the last day and we were happily surprised when we took our first turns this morning. 

The Train Keeps on Rollin’

March 15th, 2021|

Last year today we closed our doors for the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What a year it has been. This isn't happening this year as more snow fell today on top of yesterday's crazy storm. Life is deep and fresh and the weather and virus gods are being kind to us here at the moment.

The Weather Wave Train Keeps Rolling

February 22nd, 2021|

Since we last wrote, we had just lived through one of the driest January's that we have dealt with. Not only was COVID stressing our system but the lack of snow was painful, to say the least. We were forced to close operations for two and a half weeks in mid-January and the dream of skiing powder was just that, a dream.

Better Late Than Never

January 7th, 2021|

Yesterday we kicked off our 38th season of operation with lots of excitement, gratitude, and Colorado's classic blue bird skies! After continuous planning and adjusting of our day-to-day to match Covid-19 guidelines so our guests and guides can feel safe while skiing powder, it has finally paid off and we couldn't be happier to be floatin' on the freshies once again! 

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

October 7th, 2020|

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?

May 14th, 2020|

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

April 6th, 2020|

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

March 15th, 2020|

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

March 11th, 2020|

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

March 10th, 2020|

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

March 4th, 2020|

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.
