Steamboat is an incredible resort and has a great town outside of the base area to boot. Tomahawk is a great run with a little bit of everything for a blue. This is by far my favorite place to ski and flights into Hayden airport are easy to get.

Steamboat is absolutely amazing. Great snow, weather, terrain and not too many people. It is a magical resort that can make the most stressed out relax from Alpine to Aspen forests. It's a good one.
