Champagne Powder, Cowboy Town

Although it has earned the moniker of Ski Town, USA, for producing more winter Olympians than any other resort in the country, and has trademarked its 26 feet of average snowfall as "Champagne Powder," Steamboat Springs is a ski town second and a cowboy town first. Since the opening of the resort nearly 50 years ago, the city of Steamboat has encountered some impressive development, from après-ski bars and haute cuisine to a brand new promenade at the base of the gondola with a heated walkway, musical stage, and three-tiered ice castle. But its genuine Western heritage and hospitality, an homage to its cowboy roots, remain.
