Steamboat, CO, Sunday 08FEB04 (Jon Speare)


We skied Steamboat yesterday. There was about a foot of new
snow and it snowed more during the day. It was pretty fun. They don't
have a lot of steeps but there's some great glade skiing that's serviced
by a high-speed quad so you can get a lot of skiing in a short amount of
time. They reported 18 inches new overnight so it must have snowed
another foot overnight. There have been a lot of articles in the Denver
Post about Silverton Mountain. We are getting intrigued and may try to
head down there for spring break. They charge ~$100 for day pass but
every group gets a guide. They also limit the number of skiers to about
25 per day. I think First Tracks!!! Should do an article on it!!! Thanks
again Jay. Hope you get more snow. The water vapor satellite looks like
more vapor is heading your way.
