"Steamboat has some of the best snow in the Rocky Mountains, the largest mid-mountain base of the major Colorado destination resorts, and a summit base that's spilling over the 80-inch mark."
The resort is currently in a storm cycle that as of 5am this morning has yielded 6" at mid-mountain and 11" at the summit overnight; 20" at mid-mountain and 32" at the summit in past 48-hours and 26" at mid-mountain and 35" at the summit in the past three days. The resort is reporting a 71-inch base at mid-mountain and 82-inch base at the summit with powder conditions. Additional snow is forecasted throughout the remainder of the week.
Since the resort opened on November 26th, snow has fallen 41 out of 62 days (66%) with 27 of those days recording four or more inches. So far this season at mid-mountain, Steamboat has seen 4.75" in October; 35.25" in November; 100" in December; and 88" in January for a combined total of 228" (19 feet).
"With over 100 inches in December and now January closing in the centennial milestone, Steamboat is definitely showing why it is the home of Champagne Powder snow," said Rob Perlman, vice president of sales & marketing for the resort. "Mother Nature's attention is definitely squarely focused on Ski Town, U.S.A. and powderhounds couldn't be happier!"
