Thanks to the snowiest October on record, Steamboat Resort, CO started making snow last night – the earliest in the resort’s history.
44″ of snow has fallen so far this month, and with a scheduled opening day of 23rd November, crews are eager to begin building the base for the upcoming season. Weather forecasters are calling for another 12″ to land on the area early next week.
Beginning last night, the ski area plans to use about 100 snowmaking guns on the mountain focusing efforts on trails around the top of the Christie Peak Express. Those include Sitz, Jess’ Cut Off, Vogue, Short Cut, Stampede and All Out.
