Old Man Winter blew through Steamboat-Ski Town, U.S.A.® yesterday bringing eight inches of fresh snow overnight and single digit temperatures signaling a snowy change to the weather pattern. In the past 24-hours, Steamboat reported eight inches of new snow at mid-mountain with a 19-inch mid-mountain base and 22-inch summit base on powder conditions.
With the arrival of the new snow, the resort will be phasing in new terrain and lifts over the coming week. As early as tomorrow, Burgess Creek chairlift along with Rudi’s Run, Lightning and Ego are anticipated to open. In addition, a number of green trails including Boulevard, Giggle Gulch and Right-O-Way accessed from Christie Peak Express will significantly increase beginner terrain. The resort will work towards opening Storm Peak Express later in the week.
