The best thing about Steamboat is even if it’s a powder day and you aren’t able to get up in the morning, you can still find some in the afternoon to enjoy. My friend Erik from Summit County drove up for his first day at Steamboat so I told him where to go on the trail map and then was able to join him at 2pm to finish out the afternoon shredding. The sun also came out for the afternoon so it was the perfect powder day.
Erik had rode the Pony Express trees which have some good aspens but I wanted him to get the full aspen tree feel by heading to the clocks and twilight area on the mountain. It was tracked out but still fun and got the legs working.
At the bottom of Sundown we ended up running into Charlie who I knew from the Zumiez Buffalo Pass trip, we ended up finishing out the day taking laps with him and finding some good powder to end the day out on.

Afterwards we sat outside in the sun at slopeside for some beer and eventually pizza, it was a very fun day with the boys and glad I was able to get outside to enjoy it. Now it’s time to head to Breckenridge for some Burton demos tomorrow.
