The snow is falling again in Steamboat Springs! We saw about 6-9” on Wednesday morning and another 3” fell throughout the day. This morning we woke up to another 4” of light and fluffy snow. The champagne powder atop such a solid base makes for some incredible skiing! Head to Morningside lift FIRST THING for steep, fresh lines. A short hike to No Names, North Saint Pats or East Face will give you access to some of the steepest lines on Steamboat Resort. If it is a windy day however, we do not suggest going over there because it becomes quickly windswept and icy.
If you do find yourself up on the resort on a windy day, head over to Sunnyside for some more protected runs. High Noon and One O’Clock trails are great for cruising and are surrounded by fun aspen groves and powder pockets. For some steeper terrain on Sunnyside, we suggest skiing Rolex or West Side which also give you access to some fun tree runs such as Broadway Trees or Land of the Little People.
Once you have skied all of Sunnyside, head the other side of the mountain and check out all the terrain that Pony lift has to offer! Middle Rib, Outlaw and Royal Flush are all super fun, black diamond trails that are perfect early on a powder day!
