Steamboat is the home of Champagne Powder - the lightest, fluffiest snow on earth! You can be riding waist deep and feel almost no resistance - like floating on a bottomless cloud. There is over 3,000 acres in bounds with hardly any lift lines. The tree runs seem to never end - every spacing of aspens and evergreens you can imagine for miles and miles. Multiple terrain parks, average snow fall of over 300 inches, a ridiculous super pipe and 3,600 vertical feet. You are in for a treat!
