WHY: Steamboat serves up dry pow and sweet trees without any attitude. It’s a real town with real people, as unfussy as it gets.
WHAT: If the steep Chutes off Morningside aren’t powdery, they’re perma-chalky. Also hit the Two-Thirty trees (located between the Two O’Clock and Three O’Clock runs).
WHERE: Near the base, an old patrol trailer turned hip dive bar—called the T-Bar—offers creative fare like peanut-butter-bacon paninis. It’s great in spring, when friendly locals—and their friendly dogs—party it up on the Beach.
