Steamboat ski conditions hold strong in spite of weather

Snowcat drivers help maintain good trails

The high-country snowpack condensed by about 5 inches under the March sun this week, but the cruising conditions on the trails of Steamboat Ski Area have held up well. Powder days have been few and far between this winter, especially compared to the past two winters when Steamboat tallied more than 400 inches of snowfall. The ski area’s season total now is 208.5 inches and the mid-mountain base is 48 inches.
