Default going to steamboat wenesday (1/13)

Hey I'm going to steamboat for the first time on wednesday. Is there anything I should know and what are some of the best spots on the slopes that I should hit up? looking at the trail map the sunshine lift on upper right hand corner looks like it has a lot of nice long blue runs, and idk perhaps less crowded?

I like to start out on the green run Why Not just to get my shit together, then i found its fun to go to the back side and hit up a couple short runs... then its off to the chutes and christmas tree bowl- depending on how good you are. me and my friends find it fun to just cruise around and find the spots that have been light travelled. all in all you should have a fun time there. the mountain has a lot to offer and the snow should be getting good around that time. have fun

you guys know theres gonna be a music festival that weekend too. Anyone know how long it takes to drive from steamboat to the University of Colorado boulder? I'm 17 and I wanna see the campus because I'm considering it for college and I've been told you should deffinately have stepped onto the campus before you make a decision to go to any college. This will probably be the only time I'm in colorado before i graduate so I was wondering if I would have time to see the university a little bit. My flight lands around noon i think (assuming no delays between detroit-chicago-steamboat) after adding the time it takes to get luggage and rental car and everything, would there be enough time for a trip to UC boulder to be worth it (and then coming back somewhat early so I can get out on the mountain bright and early the next morning) ?

Roughly 3 1/2 hours from Steamboat to Boulder. Give or take 15 minutes. That is of course if the roads are clear. It can be double or worse if a serious storm sets in.
