With the final day of the ski season upon us, I can’t help but feel a little sad. Yes, I know, the change of season is what makes us appreciate winter when it comes back around. And of course, there are miles of biking and hiking trails to be explored on our mountain once the snow melts, which is something to look forward to.

SkiBut when we close for skiing with so many fantastic slopes still begging to be enjoyed, it’s bittersweet to see this final day come. To that point, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a handful of outdoor enthusiasts hiking and snowshoeing their way up the trails for some final turns in the week ahead.

Good Times to Come

So if you were able to visit Steamboat this winter and experience what a 370-inch season total snowfall looks like, then good on you. We hope to see you return in the future. In the meantime, think warm and sunny thoughts so we can get on with summer activities as soon as we can. After all, if the winter season is officially over then there’s no reason not to start dusting off those bikes.

Happy Trails, and keep skiing Steamboat.
