The Goods: Johnny Spillane owns three Olympic medals. That’s not so remarkable in Steamboat Springs, a Western throwback where cattle ranchers coexist with world-beating athletes. Spillane often shepherds his two kids up the gondola and down the gentle turns of Why Not? But when the trees fill in, he skates from the top of Storm Express to the inbounds Morningside Park where the trees hide rock drops, and steep untracked shots abound. “Steamboat has everything,” says Spillane. “There’s so much tradition, and you can fish, bike, or ski minutes from downtown.”

Eat & Drink:Spillane frequents Johnny B. Goods, a kid-friendly diner right on Steamboat’s main drag. Catch the Early Bird breakfast—eggs, hash browns, toast, and bacon—for $3.99 between 7 and 9 a.m.  —O.D.
