37. Steamboat Spring, Colorado
Why go: Why wouldn’t you want to ski a destination known for its 350 inches of “champagne powder” per year? Located in the Yampa Valley, a three-and-a-half-hour-drive from Denver—and with more direct flights from across the country arriving in the Yampa Valley Regional Airport each year—Steamboat is a throwback to the Old West. Spurs, saloons, and barns will make you feel like you’re living your cowboy dreams.
Where to stay: Stay on the resort without feeling like you’re at a resort at the ski-in, ski-out Antlers at Christie. It’s made for groups with four- and five-room condos complete with fireplaces, kitchens, and private patios. Bonus: There are heated boot lockers and ski-valet service.
