The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club took over the Steamboat Springs Ski Area this past weekend for a Giant Slalom Event. All of the participants were divided up into teams and given different countries to represent.  The Steamboat Pilot covered the event and featured a picture of my son Alden on the cover. He had his tongue out and racing well for a 3rd place finish. 

Starting racing at a young age gives kids the opportunity learn and develop their skill. The kids aren't just learning about ski racing, they are learning discipline, focus, teamwork and competition.

1-4 local Moose have made our yard home for about 3 weeks now and are here often throughout the year.  They seem to like it here because they eat sleep, spar and bring their babies here too.  We seem to see more of them, more often every year.  Pretty cool for a house in the City, of Steamboat that is :)

Steamboat Springs had a wonderful weekend with receiving more than a foot of fresh powder. We enjoyed being on the mountain with the family & friends this past weekend, we spoke to alot of visitors and they couldn't have had a bigger smile on their faces. But, it's not stopping yet, the National Weather Forecast is calling for more snow and alot of it! This week their calling for 3 to 6 feet of snow by Wednesday morning at the Ski Area, they say this will be accumulating in the higher elevations. So get your family & friends together and enjoy the slopes this week especially over the beautiful holiday.

Another Beautiful Day in Steamboat Springs! 9 more inches came into Steamboat last night and helped the Steamboat Ski Resort to having the snowiest November on record!  The snowfall total is currently upto 111" with the mid-mountain base at 47" and the summit at 67".  The Resort reported this morning that these snow depths currently put Steamboat as having the deepest base in the state of Colorado! This morning the skies parted and gave us a beautiful blue bird powder morning. Hope you enjoy the short video we put together below!

The snow conditions in Steamboat are fantastic for early in the season.  Looking at this picture, its hard to believe this was taken yesterday, almost a week before Thanksgiving.  The ski area is currently boasting 74 total inches of snow and a 32" base.  The photo above was taken by a friend, Jay Kinghorn, who was out on Buffalo Pass yesterday.  Located just a few miles outside of Downtown Steamboat Springs, Buff Pass often gets more snow than the mountain, making it a great place for backcountry skiing.  We are heading out tomorrow to get a few turns in before the mountain opens up on Wednesday, check back for some more pictures!

It's going to be a powder fest if the storm comes in Sunday night.  There is already an incredible amount of snow up there from several storms over the last week.  Its time to get your gear together, make plane reservations for winter if you haven't already, increase your workouts and climb up the mountain to get the season started early if you haven't already.

From Steamboat Ski and Bike Kare: "The rumours circulating around Steamboat have been confirmed. After many less than ideal opening days allegedly almost the entire mountain maybe close to opening. So far we are hearing the following lifts will be running Gondola, Christie 6, Storm Peak and Burgess Creek. Runs to look forward to; Upper High Noon to Duster, Over to Flying Z, the 4 Points and
