I was also at Steamboat last march for one of the dry/warm weeks. It was the first time our group had skied there. We had a good time despite the lack of new snow and spring like conditions.
Having said that I was dissapointed in much of the terrain. You may or may not like the mountain depending on the type of terrain you are looking for.
The mountain has many green and blue runs that will be perfect for beginner skiers. I thought the majority of the Blues at steamboat (specifically on the right side of the mountain) were very mellow and could have been classifed as greens due to the inconsistant pitch and often flat spots.
The week we were out much of the gladed/tree skiing was not skiable due to extreme freeze/thaw conditions and lack of new snow. I'm sure many of these areas (pioneer ridge/shadows areas) would be a blast with colder/better snow conditions.
I also feel there is a lack of consistant steep terrain. Chutes 1,2,3 were nice as is much of the hike/short walk to terrain (5-10 min) from the top of monringside but the runs were very short with the requirement of getting on 2 different lifts just to access the terrain again.
Regardless of the terrain (blue or black) I felt like the majority of the mountain was a series of short sections of consistant pitch with intermittent flat sections.
However, I really liked the feel of the town and the crowds seem reduced when compared to front range resorts I have skied such as Breck, Copper, Vail, ect..
