Steamboat Springs Bristol gets snowboarders' vote

Snowboard magazine in the US has just voted the Bristol Hotel in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, hotel of the week. "Why stay at a chain hotel when you can check out a place with some local flavor for the same price," says the magazine.

The hotel, illustrated here, was established in 1948 by local police chief Everett Bristol – so there is no doubting how this hotel got its name. With a welcoming host, Petrona Pusey, it's a great hotel in the middle of town, with a real old-time feel.

"The roots of Steamboat Springs are in ranching," says the hotel. "And that's the flavor that embraces you as you step across the threshold to an era gone by. You can almost hear spurs jingling with each footfall as the Bristol's ambience, like a Zane Grey novel, takes you to a simpler time. Hang up your duster, put your wide-brim on the hook and stay awhile."

Sounds wonderful. For other Bristol hotels in snowy skiing locations, visit Ski Bristol Hotels.
