Steamboat Ski area gets 26 inches of snow on top, 12 inches at the base
I talked to a couple of friends who work on the mountain and it looks like we got some good snow out this weekend's storm. The snow that fell was perfect to build a solid base and should make things better all season. Things look good up high but we could use some more snow down lower. The cold tempatures expected for at least the next week will allow for great snowmaking output and maintain the snow we have. The mountian was shrouded in a cloud of snowmaking today and they even had the guns down in hte rodeo arena behind my office going strong all day. The gondola was running this afternoon so things are starting to fall in place for opening day next Wednesday November 23rd. From what I hear conditons up on Rabbit ears and Buffalo pass are luring many backcountry skiers already. How about one more good storm to make the mountain just right?
