Snow Record for Snowpack Depth in Steamboat Springs

Steamboat is going down in the history books this winter for recording the deepest snowfall in recorded Colorado history. The snow on Buff Pass, just outside of downtown Steamboat Springs is currently sitting at over 200 inches deep, with 72.6 inches of water content. “This exceeds the previous record reading of 71.1 inches of water equivalent measured in 1978.”

While the weather is beginning to warm in Steamboat, there is still plenty of snow on the mountain and in the backcountry that can be skied and snow-shoed. If you have some extra time in the morning or late afternoon, stop over on Buff Pass or up on Rabbit Ears to get in a few extra days to add to your season!
