Temperatures have not been continually cool sufficient to make snow, which is unusual.
” It is unusual to have to delay opening … 2016 I believe was the last time that we did have to due to weather and I think 2017 we actually opened up early because of the snow. It’s really fascinating running a business that is absolutely reliant on weather as well as you can not control the weather and this is exactly how we readjust and we flex to whatever Mother Nature provides us,” stated a Steamboat Ski Resort spokesperson.
Boat is expecting favorable snowmaking conditions today and think that Nov. 27 makes a more reasonable opening day.
Steamboat said that guests who have appointments between Nov. 20 as well as Nov. 26 need to contact Steamboat Central Reservations.
