Steamboat's legendary Champagne Powder has helped build up the base across the mountain to prepare the area for some incredible spring skiing. Known as Ski Town, U.S.A., Steamboat has produced more winter Olympians than any other town in North America, with nearly 70 athletes. "Steamboat's heritage and legendary terrain complement our existing portfolio of world-class mountain resorts. This acquisition increases our capacity to reach new customers and represents a significant step for Intrawest in our strategy to become the undisputed world leader in the development and management of experiential destination resorts," said Alex Wasilov, president and chief operating officer of Intrawest.
