Preview: When you think of modern-day Steamboat, two images come to mind: One is a leather-faced cowboy in chaps and a Stetson hat astride a horse galloping in knee-deep snow, and the other is powder snow tar-bursting in a delicate spray against a cobalt-blue sky as skiers cut first tracks in the morning sun.
The ski resort is actually 3 mi outside of town and has its own modern base-area village, with hotels and condos, shops, bars, and restaurants.
The resort tends to be quieter at night than the town, a trait that families with children or couples looking for a private, romantic getaway may find appealing.
