Steamboat

Overview

The term Champagne Powder was invented here and if you ever get to ski Steamboat after a fall of Snow (335” annually) you’ll realise why they call it Champagne. This is an excellent resort for beginners and intermediates, although a week here would probably be enough for good intermediates.
