Sunday was a fun powder day at the upper elevations of Steamboat with snow showers and breaks of sunshine throughout the day.
Then on Sunday night, the final wave of colder snow moved through with 7 inches falling at the summit and about 5 inches on the official mid-mountain snow stake. We could see a few more hours of accumulating snowfall until about 9:00 am on Monday morning, so with a little luck, you'll find a bit more snow than the report indicates. Have fun on the fourth powder day in a row!
On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, the weather will be dry and warm with highs in the 40s near and above mid-mountain.
Then our final storm of the season will bring snow from Thursday night through Saturday midday with 6-12 inches of accumulation. This will be a colder storm with temperatures in the teens and 20s. My pick for the best powder is Saturday morning.
After that, Sunday, April 15th, closing day, should turn out dry and sunny.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for an update each morning!
