If it's champagne, it's Steamboat

Another posting from Steamboat Ski Area and another mention of that darned "champagne powder" got me wondering: Why can't Copper Mountain or Breck or Winter Park talk about their recent fluffy snow that way? What, does Steamboat have a lock on the CP description? Well, apparently it does. The folks at Steamboat are so proud of the dry fluff that builds up on their trails that they copyrighted the phrase "Champagne Powder." According to sources, locals backed up their claim for the world's best powder by hiring meteorologists who determined that Champagne Powder has 70 percent less moisture than old average snow. - Deb
