Hi I am planning a group trip to steamboat. We are thinking of the last week of March. What can we expect for snow conditions?
That is really pushing the season. There could be snow or it could be warm and very little snow. The season usually ends right around the first weeks of April. I hope it snows for you.
Previous response is accurate. Every year the end of March conditions are spotty at best.
I ended up going last week. Lots of sunshine and we had fun. The only day it snowed was Sunday when we were trying to fly home. All flights were cancelled, mostly due to high winds... only 5" of fresh snow.
I am a New Englander and it was great New England conditions. Locals are disappointed saying they are down around 100" from normal.
Ugh...man this year it is rough. Only 70% of average snowfall as of today. Coverage is very thin. Things are picking up a bit but that is getting late in the season. I’d cross your fingers and hope for some warm soft snow. Maybe you’ll get some cold pow but I wouldn’t get your hopes too high.
