Like bacon, snow makes everything better. In Steamboat Springs, snow provides us great skiing, make the landscape sparkle, and provides the needed water for the rivers. So without snow, we tend to get SAD.
The forecast calls for SNOW. With a slow start, the Steamboat Ski Area got off to a slow start with primarily relying on man-made snow. Now I applaud the ski area for we were skiing on schedule albeit just a few runs. But now Old Man Winter has been hanging around Steamboat Springs, Colorado for the last two weeks and that’s making everyone happy. Snow is just a good thing.
With this added natural snow, Storm Peak opened today. I’m sure there’s some powder turns being cut today. And if we’re lucky, there’s going to be more powder and tree skiing in the near future.
Now this snow is not only vital for skiing, but the reservoir in Colorado are low from a dry season last year. So we all need this snow for the health of our river like the Yampa river here in Steamboat.
