The late season snow got us excited and yesterday morning we took a few runs in the 10" of new snow before heading into work. Realizing (but hoping against the idea) that this could be one of the last big powder days we implemented our Powder Clause and enjoyed the morning on the mountain.  The powder felt like January snow, as light and fluffy as Champagne powder can be, and blew past and behind us with each turn.  While enjoying the new snow, we  unfortunately missed getting footage from up on 'No Names', which we decided was one of the best runs of the year...Next time!  Hope you enjoy the video below and hope to see you out on the mountain this weekend!

Steamboat Schools got a great award today by being recognized as one of five Colorado Trailblazer Schools to Watch on Monday by the Colorado Association of Middle Level Education. Nationally about 300 schools are expected to recieve this distinction.

From the Steamboat Pilot: "Being named a school to watch makes the middle school a model for other schools across the country, Lauer said.

This is atypical of the state trend and national trend.”
