Steamboat Springs isn’t just home to powder, its home to Champagne Powder. Nothing quite cleared that up like Saturday night when Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation logged an astonishing 17 inches. No matter how you spell it, say it or think about it…that is a lot of snow. Saturday night was the First Annual Merry Mainstreet on Lincoln Avenue downtown and from personal experience the snow was literally blowing sideways. It was a great event with Santa Claus, carolers, great shopping deals and a gingerbread house competition. With all the snow and festivities, this past weekend sure put me in the holiday spirit.
