Steamboat, January29-Feb 7th - Page 2

post #31 of 46

I think I should be able to meet up Weds or Thurs, either morning or afternoon... or anytime on the weekend.  Unfortunately I am stuck in meetings from 8-5 every other day this week, ugh.

Me and Skiergirl777 gonna be riding Tuesday-Thursday.  Lots of stuff planned for the week already so we'll check back here and see what everyone's doing as it gets closer.

Judging from the snow falling in Steamboat it seems that the Finndog magic is still working!  I hope it keeps up until next week.

Uh yeahhhh... think I'm going to hold on skiing today.... just got this email from lift dept: at 9am current temp at Thunderhead is -19, wind chill is -34... current temp at PHQ (top of Sundown) is -22, wind chill is -40.  And as an fyi, most lifts are delayed opening due to the ridiculous cold this morning.  Pretty shocked I got the car started, quite the groan firing it up... co-workers car thermometer registered -40 at Stagecoach intersection this morning and that spot is usually a good 5 degrees warmer than the Yampa bridge on 131 so we think her thermometer actually bottomed out.

Don't blame you a bit, tam.  It was no doubt way cold.  Gotta say though that we had another really good day.  We started at 10am, the sun was blazin' and the wind was nearly nil.  I shed my neck gaiter after the first run and wished I had one less layer on top the rest of the day.


Again, the local knowledge of Finndog and Ski-ra kept us in soft and often deep snow all day long.  Got to share some runs with GregMerz but missed snowfun3.  Mosdef an above average day on the hill for me!  Thanks guys!

Any epicskiers still around up here at the 'boat?  It's puking today and up to 18" is expected through tomorrow so I've decided to stay through the weekend...alone....  Give a holler today/tomorrow (PM me today - I'll check this thread tonite).

 Two weeks and counting......


We're headed to Steamboat again this year on the 21st of this month. We're planning to hit Copper on Monday on the way up from Colorado Springs and then ski the 'boat from Tuesday through Friday. I think the temps are supposed to moderate some. It looks like the conditions should be great this year. I'm thinking of checking on Powdercats for a day, if they have space.

The conditions are definitely fabulous - with a base depth of nearly 100" above the top of the gondola if you see a line ski it...been skiing all sorts of tree shots that on an average year would be gnarly.  Enjoy!

Try going over to Truffle Pig at one Staemboat. They have killer apre ski deals, $2 PBR drafts and $3 micro's (try the Avery IPA) and a bunch of $3 appetizers and such. Much nicer setting, big screen tv's and all.   The flat bread pizza's are killer!
