The night before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse

...because they were too tired after skiing today's epic powder conditions; 24 inches in the past 48 hours.

I was at the Gondola by 8:10 am so I managed first tracks on Twister and plenty of fresh tracks: on Triangle 3; to skier's left of Cyclone; on Shadows where it was thigh deep, light and fluffy; and to skier's left of the Priest Creek Liftline. In Steamboat it actually does get better than this, but not much and not often.

Total vertical today was 16,484 ft.
