GO: Steamboat, Colo.

From the rugged slopes to the colorful downtown, this Colorado resort keeps the West wild.

Two crooked lines of little skiers sidestep slowly to the start gate, race jitters evident among some, the quiet confidence of “just another race” exuding from others. The youngest racers go first, toddlers bundled in bright parkas and gumball helmets steering their way through the gates in stuttering snowplows. They’re so cute, no one cares if they miss a gate—or three.

Best Ski-Town Margs, Apres Ski
A margarita on a sunny deck is a ski-town rite of spring. Here’s a list of greats from our highly opinionated testers.

Cut fresh lime into slices. Rub the rim of a chilled glass with lime. Dip rim in coarse salt. In a shaker, add two ounces of tequila (preferably 100 percent agave), one ounce Cointreau, and one ounce fresh lime juice. Shake. Strain. Pour. Sip slopeside (with a satisfied smile) sometime in the spring.

Travel: Beaver Creek, Colorado

Why Ski Beaver Creek Colorado
Get off the groomers and discover this luxury resort’s untapped expert terrain. The best part: You’ll have earned that cookie at the end of the day.

Credit must be given to whoever arranged for access to the Stone Creek Chutes off of a trail called Cinch. Very funny, we like your sense of humor. The chutes, of course, by their very nature as chutes, are no cinch. But glide past the rustic wooden plaques identifying the extreme terrain beyond, and it’s a little like the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland.
