STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO—March 13, 2006—Spring is just a week a way, yet winter doesn’t want to let up at the Steamboat Ski Area, where a series of storms has brought the resort over a foot of snow at mid-mountain and nearly two feet of snow at the summit in the past 24 hours. Steamboat is currently reporting an 86-inch base at mid-mountain and 115-inch base at the summit.

"After about a week of Colorado bluebird sunny days early in March, Mother Nature has put us right back into full-on winter with mid-January conditions with lots of snow and cold temperatures,” said Doug Allen, vice president-operations of the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. "With systems stacked up to our west, we anticipate a series of storms to remain active throughout the remainder of the week.”


2006 TORINO OLYMPICS RECAP Alpine From two silver medals in 2002 to two gold medals in 2006... Ted Ligety was the surprise combined gold medalist under the lights in Sestriere. Then Julia Mancuso, who earned two bronze medals on the other side of northern Italy a year ago at Worlds in Bormio, ended the women’s schedule by winning the giant slalom.
Cross Country Kikkan Randall, the niece of two Olympians, produced the best U.S. women’s Olympic cross country result, finishing ninth in the 1.1K freestyle sprint. Earlier, she and Wendy Wagner made finals and were 10th in the inaugural team sprint, a 1.1K classic technique event.
Andy Newell qualified second and newcomer Chris Cook 16th in the men’s 1.3K FR sprint. Earlier, Kris Freeman rebounded from sickness which sapped his energy and was 22nd in the men’s 15K classic race.

Sunshine’s Wild West Freeride
Wild West is a demanding Freeride Zone, like Delirium Dive, but with its own unique topography and character. Wild West features three major rock walled couloirs, steep crevices, and a series of cliffs that reach over 30 meters (100 feet).
Accessed off the western edge of Goat’s Eye Mountain, the Wild West can easily be seen from the Gondola. Shortly after rounding the “curve station” from the base, this difficult terrain is seen above and to the east. It is a segment that runs almost to the Goat’s Eye mid-station.
