Scene: Best Ski-Town Margs

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.

Hotels: What's New

Newly Renovated Hotels in Ski Towns
Newly Renovated Hotels in Ski Towns
Time to revisit these ski-town lodges, where recent renovations mean things don’t look quite like they used to.

Lodge at Breckenridge, Breckenridge, Colo. » Aiming to rise from typical mountain lodge to bou- tique hotel, the 35-year-old Lodge at Breckenridge reopened in December following $3.7 million in renovations. Enhancements include beetle-kill pine decor in each of the 45 rooms and the addition of Traverse Restaurant & Bar.

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.

Colorado's Biggest Secret: Copper Mountain

Copper Mountain Resort
Copper Mountain Resort
Colorado's Copper Mountain Resort is poised to win the hearts of a new generation of skiers by giving them what they really want: a kick-ass mountain.

It's a clear, blue day in early March. A few thready clouds stretch out thin on the horizon. We’ve hiked a quarter mile from where the snowcat dropped us and are catching our breath at the top of Tucker Mountain. The patrol “dumpster” is the only structure—an ugly rectangular box marring an otherwise lovely view of the pyramid peaks of the Ten Mile and Mosquito ranges. The steeps of Copper Bowl, Fremont Glades, and the gastronomically named Taco and Nacho splay out below—50-plus-degree pitches packed with cold, chalky snow.

The Obermeyer founder, and ski history (and yodeling) legend, talks ski pants, Gary Cooper, and the secret to life.

We caught up with Klaus Obermeyer, the ski maverick who founded Sport Obermeyer, at Aspen International Fashion Week. Between infectious chuckles, he shared his legendary tales—from whence the first down parka came.
