The History of the Steamboat Ski Area

Are you interested in learning how the Steamboat Ski Area came about? If so, just released is a wonderful documentary on the history of Steamboat and its founder, Jim Temple. In "Stormy, The Story of a Mountain and a Man" you'll hear first-hand how one man's vision became reality as one of the top ski mountains in North America.
