Steamboat Powder skiing in this year's Warren Miller Film

I just got back from this year's Warren Miller movie called Off The Grid. Steamboat has a 5 minute segment and the powder shots were awesome. Probably second only to the shots of a paralyzed guy in a sit ski heli-skiing in Alaska. As you know the 2005/2006 season was Epic here in Steamboat so it wasn't hard for them to get some nice shots. Most importantly we all got to relive a whole lot of days that were as good or better than when the Warren Miller Crew was filming. I still have a big smile on my face as I write this. It is snowing hard here tonight and has been since about 6pm. I ran into to a friend that hiked up to the top of Storm Peak on Sunday and said he had great powder turns for a long way down. It looks like tomorrow will be even better, I wish I had time to take a hike to the top. Go back to the Steamboat Springs blog main page for more.

Hey Jon,

That warren miller ski movie sounds great, they play those often on HDNET (a high definition cable channel) and I always get sucked in even though I have seen many of them a handful of times. I have been tracking the colorado storm that is hitting you guys now, it was featured on Good Morning America too, wonder how much snow the mountain resort will get.

I lived in Colorado myself for four years and skied at Steamboat once, hope you have an awesome year buddy ;-)

Thanks Brian! We got about a foot last night so I wnet up and skied on Rabbit Ears pass this morning on my light backcountry gear. I hope that you can make it out here soon to make some turns of your own
