Diario di Bordo - Steamboat Springs

How amazing is Colorado? Beautiful outdoors, friendliest people, tons to see and do. All of the best America has to offer.

In my humble and all that jazz.

After a wonderful if brief family reunion with aunt and uncle, complete with a tour of their old homestead, Giuseppe and I made our way west and north to the stunning Steamboat Springs.

A car-less holiday: the hotel offered a free shuttle to the slopes and back, and the town has a free transit system to get around. We rented our skis at the base (shout-out to Steamboat Ski & Bike Kare for excellent service), and the shop would also store our skis over night. That is nice enough, but they also keep your ski boots on a heated rack to dry, so in the morning: warm boots. It's the little things.

Another shout-out is due to the Ambassadors Ski Tours, run by volunteers and completely free of charge.

A word of caution: if you are in the witness protection relocation programme, do not try to move to Colorado. It is impossible to be anonymous in this state.
