Get Fit for Ski Season

The season is about to start. Time to get in ready!

From Steamboat Today, we all remember our first day last year on the slopes. At the end of the day and we are back at the house, the muscles are really sore and the quick fix is to jump in the hot tub. Check out this article in the Steamboat Pilot and get ready for the season before your plane lands! Preparing now will help you avoid the pains and soreness but most importantly can help you avoid injury.

10-15" of snow accumulation by Tuesday

The Steamboat Pilot says that "Steamboat residents could expect 10-15" of snow accumulation by Tuesday morning"

It seems like the last few posts have just been about the weather and ... you're right! We are excited to see so much snow so early. There is no guarantee that early snow will mean a lot of snow this winter but based on past history it's a pretty good indicator. We are so excited about the early snowfall that we are planning a quick trip in early December.
November is here and the resort travel agencies have ended their early booking discount so we decided to continue our "Early Booking Discount" until Black Friday November 29, 2013. Check out our calendar on our Steamboat Rockies web site to see if your dates are still available! Don't forget to mention this post to get the "Early Booking Discount".

Winter Storm Warning for Steamboat

Winter Storm Warning

Steamboat is under a Winter Storm Warning until Friday Evening. While we are thrilled to see the snow coming so early, we are thinking of our friends and family in Steamboat and hope they stay warm the next few days.
The Weather Channel says that snow accumulations may be 5" to 10" or higher along north and northwest facing slopes and The Steamboat Springs area can expect 3" to 7" of snow accumulations.
Even our friends at Google issued a Winter Storm Warning. Let's hope this early start means lots of Champagne Powder this year.
