Steamboat in mid February equates to DEEP SNOW!
My sister Amy flew in to the west for the first time and brought luck and lots of snow. We tried to leave on Thursday night to drive to Steamboat but were stopped by tons of snow, a closed interstate, and two mountain passes. On Friday they opened Interstate 70 around noon and we were off. After about 5 hours of driving we had made it to Steamboat and were ready for the next day, and it was deep. Jeremy and I found a traverse and the rest is history, the pictures tell it all.
This picture sums up the deep snow experience!
