Not a lot of snow but warm temperatures have allowed for some decent conditions the past few days. Forecast is currently calling for snow everyday this week and into next weekend. Crowds have been gradually increasing over the course of the past week. Word has it that this upcoming week may be one of the busiest of the season but, to handle the crowds, Steamboat has arranged to open the gondola 30 minutes earlier each morning. So, my advice, get to the mountain early. You'll beat the crowds and get in a few obstacle free runs before the midday rush.
