Thanks for reading the Steamboat Daily Snow during the 2017-2018 season!
Here is how the snow fell by month, compared to average:
In other words, it was an incredibly slow start, then the atmosphere gave us more hope later in the season, and we ended on a high note.
Even with well below-average snowfall for the season, the mountain was open, we enjoyed powder days, and we had fun sliding around on snow with friends and family.
I hope you have a fantastic summer, and I’ll see you back here in November when I start writing the Steamboat Daily Snow for the 2018-2019 season.
Thanks so much for reading and for your support of myself and OpenSnow.com!
