Steamboat trip recap
February 23, 2012  March 3, 2012

Trip chairpersons- Jim and Jeannie Conway 

 Trip included:

  • 7 nights stay at Ski Inn condos.
  • 5 one day lift tickets.
  • Welcome evening reception, evening parties with drinks and snacks.
  • Nastar race with a mountain picnic.
  • Pub crawl.
  • Friday night farewell dinner at top of gondola with music and dancing.

We had great snow conditions all week for trip. It snowed over 50" the week before and almost 30" the week we were there. Our Tuesday Nastar race was overcast and then turned windy and snowy. The two fastest racers for the Nastar race was our Powder Dogs Joey and Joe Keen. Temps stayed mainly in the teens and 20's so the snow stayed good all week.

Accommodations were two bedroom condos with indoor and outdoor hot tubs. The slopes were a short one block walking distance to the slopes. The Friday night farewell party was held in the restaurant at the top of the gondola. The restaurant was decorated better than some wedding receptions we've seen with more than enough to eat and drink. Dancing was also available.

Everyone had a great trip.
