Snowiest November in Steamboat History!!!!!!
December 3, 2010
The month of November in the year 2010 was a month to remember for Steamboat Springs. It was a month where the sun was hardly out and snow was constantly falling by the tons upon the little town of Ski Town USA. According to Steamboat Resort’s website, the month of November in 2010 went down as the “snowiest November in resort history.” Don’t believe me? Check it out yourself at www.steamboat.com. November’s snowfall topped out at 111 inches of fresh, indulgent, light, fluffy champagne powder. For those of you that aren’t familiar with champagne powder, I can assure you that its some of the best snow for skiing and snowboarding in the world.
Opening day began on November 24th and man was it one hell of an opening day! The gates opened with 70 something inches and everyone was all everywhere getting some of that legendary pow shot up in their faces. It was well over ten years ago since Steamboat opened on a powder day and I am sure the owner was as excited as a child in a candy store. From the 24th until the 30th, a mere 6 day span, another 40 inches fell. I was in pig heaven. Fresh powder every single day. Man I love Steamboat!!
Check out a video I made of opening weekend. It was insane. Just watch.
