Snow Drawings in Steamboat

There’s nothing that we like more than snow. Well, make that tracking up snow. Sonja Hinrichsen, an artist from San Francisco, recently turned some high-alpine tundra in Steamboat into her personal canvas. Think snowy versions of British crop circles. Or a Cristo installation without the controversy. Cool idea. Hey, we can always get behind turning a mountain meadow into a temporary piece of art, though we do prefer our snow a bit more tilted.

#6: Steamboat Springs, CO


The term “champagne powder” was coined in Steamboat Springs, and the town boasts more Winter Olympians (63) than anywhere else in the country. Coincidence? No, sirree. The two big hills (Mount Werner and Storm Peak) gather some of the fluffiest, most consistent snowfall in the state, like this year’s 105 inches in 11 days.
