About an hour ago the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation opened their doors (or chairlifts) to the skiing community by officially starting the 2008-2009 ski season here in Steamboat Springs. Today the Christie Peak Express and Preview lifts are open and all the proceeds from today’s Scholarship Day (the $20 lift tickets) goes to the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. Rummage through all your boxes and find all your ski gear because today is the day it all starts. Enjoy Scholarship Day and your Thanksgiving festivities.
