Thanks so much, Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp, for providing a stellar experience on the mountain. This year's experience topped all others (and they've been great!). The new dining venue (and upticked food choices), the spirit of the staff serving on the mountain, and, of course 30+ inches of snow in 3 days all combined to create a truly excellent experience. Our ski instructor was, simply, the best! Thanks for the great memories.
Great ski area with poor management. Their "Christie Express Peak" was a disaster. Christie III has a far faster average ride time than the 6-Pack with all of its mechanical and stopping issues, but they never run Christie III unless it's crowded.
I could go on about the Zoo they call a "Base Area" but that's a whole other problem.
Offered free skiing until Dec. 17th on Billboard but when I got there it was a bait-and-switch. Mountain looks great but they should fire their ad agency. Should have called first; never trust 'em again!
A sadly too short 4-day trip. The snow is amazing, living up to the considerable hype. Great variety of runs. We stayed at the Sheraton, which is not a luxury resort by any means, but it's ski in, ski out, which rocks.
