    Sunday was a 30 minute wait at the gondola when we arrived at 8:30. That’s bad but you only do that once. Also it was a pow day. The upper lifts were 5 minutes or less.

    Monday and Tuesday it was much better. This is college week but pretty mellow generally.



    The food and margaritas at Los Locos are a must hit for Mexican food fans.

    (the less people count it as a fave, the more snow left for those of us who do)

    10-4. I do still recommend checking it out if you reconsider. These were really awesome. https://strawberryhotsprings.com/

    Yes, that Gondola is amazing. I got to use it the first two days it was open and then it went down....for almost two weeks and over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Massive fail for Doppelmayr.

    The conditions look great, I don't know how anyone couldn't have fun in that! Some of those photos look like they are from the Christmas Tree bowl area.

    Correct. Pretty much nothing was closed and skiing deep. About the best luck I’ve had on a western trip.

    I was there too, great 4 days. Steamboat is way underrated. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore.

    We stayed at The Lodge at Steamboat. This was a trip with 3 friends who ski/ride frequently and I actually had to be talked into going. I’m so glad I gave in. The place was a 9 minute walk to the gondola.

    It's a great hill - don't know why it doesn't get a lot of love- somewhat like Keystone. Maybe because there's not a lot of pucker terrain. Usually lots of uncrowded off the Pony Express lift with lots of personality on the trails - dart in and out of trees. The 2 o'clock, 3 o'clock tree - love 'em. Have to schedule another trip back. Fantastic terrain

    Oh, that's right, Easterners don't go west for the terrain. Almost forgot.

    They go west for the snow!

    You totally prove my point. You can easily get the same terrain in the east. But you don't get the snow in the east day in and day out.
