Steamboat reached a huge snow milestone this past winter, recording a four-wire winter. Yampa Valley ranchers have traditionally measured the snow by how high it stacks up against their four fence wires.
By January or February of a typical winter, snow will cover the third fence wire, usually 30 inches high. Four-wire winters, generally more than 350 inches at the resort’s mid-mountain location, were recorded in 1983/84, 1989/90, 1992/93, 1995/96, 1996/97, 1999/2000, 2005/06, 2007/08, 2008/09, and again in 2010/11.
