We were all hoping for some snow last night, but the storm seems to have just missed us leaving only a dusting on the summit of Steamboat resort. It's continued snowing today since about 9am, hopefully we continue to see snow coming down over the next few days! Today we headed over to sunny side, and stayed in the trees for better visibility and small pockets of powder.
The trees are still pretty good in flatter, less wind-swept areas. While it's no champagne powder, there is a nice flow and soft areas especially close to the aspens in open groves. Groomers were soft this morning, although they will most likely get scraped down throughout the day.
If you are looking for an out-of-bounds experience, try Holy Bowl. It is the No. 1 side-country access gate located near the top of the Tomahawk trail. Lots of stashes and several fun cliffs are found there! However, be aware that this is out of bounds terrain, and is not patrolled and the resort is not responsible for avalanche control in these areas. Therefore, if you do decide to enter an out-of-bounds area from the resort, you as an individual are solely responsible for your safety and welfare.
