The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast for Christmas Day 2017
The official snow report shows that 7 inches fell between Sunday at midnight and Monday at 5am at mid-mountain.
What the snow report will not tell you, but you can see from the time-lapse webcams, is that intense snowfall has continued between Monday 5am to 8am at least another few inches has
fallen. That means that you’ll find at least 8-10 inches of fresh pow when you get to first chair, and we’ll likely see another 1-3 inches between 8am and late morning when the snow begins to taper off. Get out and enjoy the deepness!
We should see the intense morning snow taper off to lighter snow by late morning or noon on Monday, and then expect breaks of sun mixed with snow showers for the rest of Monday.

If the song "White Christmas" is running through your head, tip your hat to Irving Berlin and Bing Crosby.
The first public performance of the song was by Bing on his NBC radio show "The Kraft Music Hall" on Christmas Day, 1941. He subsequently recorded the song with the John Scott Trotter Orchestra and the Ken Darby Singers and for Decca Records in just 18 minutes on May 29, 1942. It was released on July 30 as part of an album of six 78-rpm discs from the musical film "Holiday Inn". At first, Crosby did not see anything special about the song: "I don't think we have any problems with that one, Irving." The song established and solidified the fact that there could be commercially successful secular Christmas songs (written by a Jewish-American songwriter).
Although Crosby dismissed his role in the song's success, saying later that "a jackdaw with a cleft palate could have sung it successfully," he was associated with it for the rest of his career.
