Snowmaking Gives Steamboat Springs a Winter

If Steamboat Springs didn’t have snowmaking, we’d be doing a lot more fishing. With little snowmaking, my old stomping grounds Crystal Mountain in Washington State is getting dumped on with 28 inches over the last 2 days, here in Steamboat Springs, we’re all still doing “the snow dance.”

Snowmaking is the lifeline to skiing for many Colorado ski resorts this year. Across Colorado, these high pressure weather systems are keeping us out of the trees so far an on groomed runs kept alive by snowmaking.  So far, Steamboat’s is off to a slow start this winter. But things will get better.  Now skiing on manmade snow isn’t much different. Snowmaking combines water and cold air to produce snow. Here’s a great video on how snowmaking works.

While here in Steamboat Springs we’re not skiing the “champagne powder” Steamboat is known for yet, but soon enough. The skiing is decent and snow is on the way for Steamboat.  In the meantime, keep on dancing and praying for snow.
