Steamboat Possible Closing Tomorrow? | Truckloads of Snow | Terrain Report 4/9/12

Trucking in snow 

Is Steamboat closing tomorrow? They have not put out an official statement yet, but I think the answer is yes! They had to truck in snow in from nearby ski hill, Howelson, to get through the weekend. Steamboat has had no new snow in the last 4 weeks and temperature highs last week reaching in tothe 70s! Last week the lower mountain closed as wells as the terrain parks and sunshine lifts.

At least the concerts over the weekend were fun. Keller Williams and local favorite “Missed the Boat” played on stage Saturday in Gondola Square at the base of Steamboat.

The weather is calling for a high of 76 tomorrow but a chance of snow for this weekend?

    Maybe sub par for you. I’m having a great time daily. The corn snow on the summit has been a lot of fun. Skiing from 1 to4pm has been great.

    Colorado skiing has been pretty rough this year. I’ve had some awesome days, but I’m tired of skiing the same poor conditions that I hit in November. I’m writing this season off and focusing on bike riding until next season.

    Is that a dumptruck load of crampain powder? Is that in the brochure? Do people like it? Is it good? How do you ski it? Is there more where that came from? How do I get some? It looks like shit, what’s it smell like? Is that what they trademarked? Never skied Champaign powder but it looks like shit. We get that stuff here in the Selkirks sometimes and we call it crap.
