The first video was taken by Ski Town broker Dave Moloney on the Monday before Closing Day. The morning ski report from the Steamboat Ski area had 5.5” of new snow at mid-mountain and 8” up top; between 5am and 9am, some Steamboat Magic produced an additional 6” of snow up top! After an outstanding run down No Names mid-morning, we hiked to Middle Rib from Last Chance since the Pony Express lift had closed for the season. These aspen just off the trail bekon to me all summer when riding up the Pioneer mountain bike trail.
The second video and some associated pictures (click the arrows on the right and left hand side of the pictures that appear when hovering - the video is the last one), also taken by Ski Town broker Dave Moloney, was on the Sunday after Closing Day. Quite the warm day, with temperatures reaching 70F in the Yampa Valley, but the corn skiing on the hill was excellent. We hiked up to the top of the Thunderhead lift via Vagabond and skied Rudi’s Run.
