Whether you’re all about the hot toddies, Wild West saloons, or après-ski eats, we’ve got the place for you
Slopes: Race down 2,965 acres of some of the West’s best gladed and groomed skiing at Steamboat ($97), including Shadows and Buddy’s Run. Hang around at the top of the gondola at 1 p.m. and you might get a chance to take the chairlift with 1964 Olympic silver medalist Billy Kidd, decked out in his signature Stetson.
Sleeps: Downtown’s Hotel Bristol (from $139) opened in 1948 and still has its Old West touches, from the saloon to the Native American quilts in the bedrooms.
