I just got back from Steamboat and now is the time to go ski. The yearly total snowfall average is 350 inches. When I left on 02/13/08 the total for this year was 374 inches. The conditions are excellent and there is more snow on the way. A record snow year is expected. Someone said here that they ran into nasty employees and lift operators. I did not find that at all. Everyone I came in contact with was helpful and friendly.
