Show us your season pass (any resort) or lift ticket to Silverton Mountain, Telluride, Wolf Creek or Durango Mountain Resort for a 10 percent discount on snowcat skiing seats

01/25/2013 – The forecast calls for snow through the end of the month. After a slow start to the season, winter has arrived to Colorado.

With January’s thaw and drought behind us, it’s time to catch up on lost powder turns and faceshots.

The San Juan Ski Company, Colorado’s largest snowcat operation, is offering a 10 percent discount on snowcat skiing seats for season pass holders (any resort world-wide) and for DMR, Silverton Mountain, Telluride or Wolf Creek day-ticket holders.

Offer is good on new bookings only. You must mention this promotion when booking reservation.

For all you hard-charging powder fiends who haven’t had their fix of the white stuff this year, make up for lost first tracks and book a snowcat skiing seat.  The SJSC guarantees untracked powder.

Discounted cat skiing seats cannot be booked online. Call 800.208.1780 for details.

Forecasters agree: The storm track is changing

Since we are diehard skiers, nothing excites us more at the San Juan Ski Company, Colorado’s largest snowcat skiing operation, than skiing powder.  If you are like us, you have been spending far too much time online following the weather and keeping track of the next storm (and, like us, are sick and tired of skiing hardpack and junk!)

Warm temps and weird jet streams have contributed to scant snowfall throughout most of the western states.  While the San Juans have one of the deeper snowpacks in Colorado, the SJSC hasn’t run snowcat trips since Dec. 31th when high winds blasted alpine terrain and warm temps melted lower elevation cat roads.  Since then, we haven’t picked up any measureable precipitation in our catski terrain.

However, the storm track appears to be changing…

Forecasters agree that the dominant ridge of high pressure is shifting and may signal an end to the blocking pattern that has pushed recent storms away from Colorado. Snow is predicted in the San Juans late Sunday and a second storm is predicted out of the northwest Monday morning. Local forecasters call for an unsettled northwest flow developing by middle of next week. One national forecaster even predicted a total flip from the current weather pattern. Continue reading
