Sounds like a lot of snoring going on in the welcome room. I'll take my part of the blame for not saying welcome a little sooner. You mentioned Steamboat Springs. I used to play at the main lodge by the chair lifts back in '73. One other member of our group was there a few weeks ago and said I wouldn't recognize it.
I remember going up to the hot springs during the winter and great fun snowmobiling. I remember the "Champagne Powder" .....especially on the bunny slope with me and all the little kids. Finally I learned how to come down the mountain. Go to one side and fall down, get up, go toward the other side, fall down, get up.......etc.
It was great fun and what beautiful country. Are you going to try and ride during the snow months?
