A Cold Start to January

Straightline Guides - Tuesday, January 02, 2018

Temperatures have been cold the past few days in Steamboat! There was a temperature inversion today however, and it was about 10 degrees warmer at mid-mountain compared to the base. The days have been sunny and clear, with the next chance for snow being on Saturday night and Monday morning. Trails have become thin in places with rocks poking through many trails, so if you received a new snowboard or pair of skis for Christmas, hold off on riding them until the base has improved!  [Read more...]

December Snow Fall

Straightline Guides - Thursday, December 28, 2017

28" in three days! We really got a white Christmas this year with storms starting on Saturday and going through Monday! The resort opened Morningside and Sundown lifts, which meant lots of fresh powder turns for the early birds! Christmas day was incredible, life lines were not long, the powder was deep and the snow kept falling all day to keep things fresh! We are excited for more snow to come so that we can keep building this base! In the past few days holiday crowds have definitely been noticeable, so if you are going early in the morning, try and get to the gondola about 45 minutes before it opens to beat the lines, or head on over to Sundown lift in the afternoon for some sunshine filled laps, the snow has been softening later in the day, and the crowds have started to thin out in the late afternoon hours. [Read more...]

Hidden Powder Stashes

Straightline Guides - Thursday, December 14, 2017

We hope everyone in Steamboat has their trail map in the freezer! This carefully planned ritual coaxes frozen H2O from the clouds, and we do need it in Steamboat! The resort recently opened up several new trails distributing the crowds across the mountain. However, we are all still hoping for some snow in the near future, and it looks like it may be coming this weekend! Snow is in the forecast for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and we have our fingers crossed that we get some coverage to soften the machine made snow up on the resort. Although the mountain has limited trails open and limited snow, we went searching for some powder on Rabbit Ears today and it did not disappoint! Well worth the hike, Walton Peak held many powder stashes as well as bluebird skies and a nice break from the crowds.  [Read more...]
