Champagne powder sprinkled over tree-lined trails. For a Colorado resort, Steamboat is relatively remote, but that also means it doesn’t get day-trippers, leaving plenty of room for you to spread out and enjoy its world-class snow. Steamboat sits at a lower elevation compared to its neighboring ski resorts, yet it consistently manages a better snowfall record.

Steamboat continues to lure with its authentic western atmosphere and friendly locals-Stetson hats and cowboy boots mingle with the latest ski gear-and not one but six peaks with varied terrain. Top that with “champagne powder” and it’s clear to see that this resort is up there with the best. It also boasts Mavericks, the longest superpipe in North America.
