November 2004, was a busy month for the northern Colorado resort, when snow fell 23 out of 30 days leaving 74 inches of powder-making it the second snowiest November in the resort's history. And it hasn't stopped.

So far, December has been just as profitable, snowing nine out of the first 17 days. Their snowpack is 114 percent above normal and it's not even "officially" winter yet.

#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.
