Here comes another powder factory for all the powder-hungry hounds out there! Considered by many as a top of its class, Steamboat Powdercats offers everything in its best quality, from the tours to their food and from the service to their snow.
It is conveniently located in Buffalo Pass which is one of the snowiest locations in Colorado. Buffalo Pass sits directly north of the Steamboat Ski Area, across Fish Creek Canyon, which is just about a 20-minute drive from downtown Steamboat Springs and is about 150 miles northwest of Denver.
Many call it a big powder factory due to the 400 and above inches of snow it receives annually. The snow is a major drawing card – very light and fluffy, something someone can see in only a few locations in the world. With nearly 4,000 acres of terrain, it sure can provide the perfect ground that will accommodate skiers of every ability level.
