105 inches to go ...

Let's hope for another 400 plus inch snow year. After our late start it has been a truly spectacular year. The snow quality has been amazing even when there was only 4 inches new since that nearly always followed a couple of feet in the previous few days. Most days have been truly Champagne Powder and Intrawest is keeping up the Steamboat tradition of under reporting on the daily snow report so us locals can keep more of the good to ourselves :) I'll toast to that with a deep day in my favorite places to find the best Champagne powder. Come out soon and help us ski all of this snow!

From Today's Steamboat Pilot:
"Today marks the first day of February, typically the third-snowiest month of winter at the Steamboat Ski Area. The ski area reported more than 100 inches of snow falling on the slopes of Mount Werner in December and January — just the third time in resort history that’s happened.The ski area reports receiving 295 inches of snow since late fall. There have been only five 400-inch ski seasons in Steamboat Ski Area history: 1983-84, 1992-93, 1995-96, 1996-97 and 2005-06"

We are looking real good with this base. At this level it is game on for big air in the BC.
