Uncork Some Champagne Powder Karen Moodie, Ski Specialist

"If you like long blue groomed cruisers “Buddy’s Run” in Steamboat will be your cup of tea. It’s a good pitch and nice and long – perfect to practice those big GS turns. It was named after Buddy Werner who was a member of the US ski team way back in the 60’s and was a local to Steamboat"
