A more picturesque town you will have a hard time finding. Mainly known as a ski town, this also makes a good base when exploring the area during the summer. The main avian draw here is the large flock of rosy-finches, usually of all three species, that frequent the area during the winter. The best strategy to find them is the drive around town watching for both the flock and for feeders.
