“Steamboat is looking forward to a historic start and fantastic early snow conditions will greet skiers and riders this Thanksgiving holiday weekend,” Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. President and CEO Chris Diamond said in a news release. “Mountain crews have done a tremendous job taking advantage of the weather pattern, abundant snow and cold temperatures and guests won’t go hungry for terrain this holiday weekend.”
The ski area plans to open 655 acres, which encompasses 22 percent of the ski area’s terrain.
Lifts operating on Scholarship Day will include Christie Peak Express, the gondola, Storm Peak Express, Burgess Creek and Four Points. A significant portion of the upper mountain will be open from Buddy’s Run to High Noon.
Ski ya on the mountain and Happy Thanksgiving!
