Steamboat Snow Report
Check out our current Steamboat and Northwest Colorado snow reports, updated regularly with number of lifts open, weather, trail conditions, snow conditions, and our personal advice on where to ski!
One of the most popular hiking trails on Emerald mountain, Blackmere trail is a fun, winding, multi-use trail that leads up to the quarry where you can find stunning views. The trail can become quite crowded on the weekends however, on week days there is easy parking and less people on the trail. On the ski up there are lots of friendly people and puppies playing. There are bikers, skiers, hikers, runners, and even some sledders on the trail so be aware of the other people using the trail and be respectful of the rules! [Read more...]
Early season this year has been phenomenal with plenty of snow fall and cold temperatures. The resort is completely open and the snow is SOFT! We have seen many frequent, smaller storms which have kept conditions excellent and terrain well-covered. Most tree runs are extremely well covered, which means no worrying about rocks, stumps and other natural obstructions. [Read more...]
Conditions are great for early season right now on the mountain! We saw significant snowfall over the weekend and cold temperatures are promising as most of the snow should stick around. Snow is wet and heavy which is perfect for a solid base to last for the entire season. [Read more...]
Winter has been holding on strong through the spring this year. We've had several sleeper pow days up on the mountain which has been excellent with no crowds and fresh lines This morning is warm and sunny, however we should see some more snow on Thursday and Friday. Skiing powder should be fun all day on Friday with snow from Thursday night's snow and additional snow throughout the day. On Saturday morning should be good as well, although the sun is predicted to appear again which could turn the snow to mashed potato conditions by noon. After that, clothing day on Sunday should be dry and sunny. [Read more...]
Spring is creeping up on us pretty quickly! Blue skies, slushy snow, and longer days make for a super fun afternoons on the mountain! We have been enjoying sunny side laps just between 12 and 2 pm when the snow is a perfect consistency. We don't recommend going up too early because it is still pretty icy early in the morning until about 11 depending on when the sun starts shining. [Read more...]
The days have been sunny and it's starting to feel a lot like spring time here in the valley. We did get a nice little storm on Sunday night into Monday which made for some soft turns on Monday morning. It looks like that may have been the last storm we get for awhile though, with warm temperatures and sunny days ahead this week. Make sure to break out the spring hoodies and sunscreen because it's going to get warm out there! [Read more...]
We can not believe today is the last day of February! Winter has being flying by- and we are still not seeing much snow! We did see several storms last week, each one was small but every flake counts! It is nice to see that most groomers have adequate coverage and there are always stashes to be found! Just look out for rocks, stumps, etc. that would normally be well covered by this time of year. We have seen a lot of injuries this season due to unexpected terrain and hard drops. [Read more...]
And Mother Nature did not disappoint! Monday morning brought with it about a foot of fresh snow!
The storm we were all eagerly awaiting seems to be coming a little late. Over the weekend we saw a few inches here and there, with the best day being Saturday which was surprisingly soft in the trees. Snow amounts daily were low, but every flake helps! During the day on Monday we saw bursts of snow, amounting to only about an inch or so, and on Tuesday we saw a full range of weather from snow, to hail to sunshine. Tuesday visibility was very low, so we went straight for the trees, finding the best stashes in the 1:30 trees, Broadway trees and the trees near Buddy's run, just be aware that conditions are still very early-season like, meaning there are still rocks, stumps, creeks and other variables that can sneak up on you!

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. [Read more...]
