Steamboat to Open Top to Bottom
The Steamboat Ski Area opens up next Wednesday and to everyone's excitement, skiers and snowboarders will have access to the top of the mountain on opening day. The mountain currently has a 38 in base mid-mountain and a 52 in base at the Summit. Over 900 acres is scheduled to open, including two of my favorites - Shadows and Closets. 5 lifts and 66 trails are ready to serve skiers as they get out on Scholarship day. Season Passes are not vaild yet, and all proceeds from next Wednesday go to the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.
To find the last season to open with similar conditions you have to go back to 1996-97, which saw a total of 447.75." The Steamboat Pilot quoted Chris Diamond, the Ski Corp CEO and President stating, 'with arguably the best snow conditions in Colorado, powder hounds at Steamboat will truly have something very special to celebrate over the Thanksgiving weekend, and the 2010-11 opening will be one for the record books.'
I can definitely attest to the great early season conditions in Steamboat. I have gotten out skiing on the mountain and am looking forward to skiing Buff Pass this weekend. It looks to be a great year and everyone in town is excited at the great early season conditions.
