A small mountain town known for its ski resort and multiple springs, Steamboat got its name from one spring that once sounded like a steamboat steam engine. Local folklore says that construction of the railroad in the early 1900s silenced the steamboat sound.

But once the sun dips below the snow-capped mountains and everything goes dark, you can slither out of your suit.

一個以滑雪度假村和多樣的溫泉聞名的山中小鎮,Steamboat這個小鎮得此名是因為有一個溫泉的聲音曾經聽起來很像汽船的引擎。當地居民說在1900早期的鐵路建設消弭了當時的汽船聲。但只要陽光斜落在被白雪覆蓋的山頂,所有事物開始變暗,你就可以滑下你的衣物。

 

“That’s something that we hope to only see — or not see — after dark,” Joe Stepan, Strawberry Park’s general manager, told CNN Travel. “The nighttime hours come around, we make sure there are no kids around, and it [clothing] is totally optional.”

The property doesn’t have any specific numbers on how often the laid-back policy is taken advantage of, “but it is approved of,” Stepan says.

「那是我們唯一希望看到的—或是不要看到—在晚上」Strawberry Park的總經理Joe Stepan這樣告訴CNN Travel,「當夜晚時間將近,我們會確保沒有小孩在附近,而衣服是完全非必需的。」這個特殊的規則並沒有實際的數字計算這項隨意的政策多常被使用,「但它是被同意的」Stepan說道。

 

Keeping it natural 融合大自然景觀

Even though clothes are required during the day, the all-natural theme is evident in the park’s stone-built pools, walls and wooden railings.

“We want to keep the rustic atmosphere. We want people to be able to enjoy the hot springs as if they were in the natural environment somewhere out in the middle of the woods.”

即使在白天衣服是必須的,全自然的景色是顯而易見的—石砌水池、石砌牆面、木造圍欄。「我們想要維持鄉村純樸的氛圍,我們想要人們在享受溫泉的時候好像他們就處於森林中一樣。」

 

It’s all built tucked into the top of the valley surrounded by snow-covered aspens and fir trees.

“We’ve got 40 acres here that happens to have some of the best hot springs around, and we have developed a park in a very minimalistic fashion,” Stepan says.

Every building on the property, built out of wood and stone, blends into the valley.

Strawberry Park就建在山谷的頂端,周邊有被雪覆蓋的山楊跟杉樹包圍。

「我們這裡占地40英畝,所以剛好周圍有一些很棒的溫泉,而且我們的遊樂場是以極簡主義設計的」Stepan說道。

這裡的所有建築物都是用木頭和石頭砌成的,如此一來就好像與山谷融為一體。

 

If you plan on staying to soak disrobed at night, make sure to bring a flashlight, as the place has hardly any artificial lights.

The surrounding snow dampens most of the ambient noise.

The only thing you hear, as you immerse yourself in the warm water, is the water cascading down the series of pools from the top of the springs to the creek bed below.

如果你計畫在夜晚寬衣浸浴,確保你有帶手電筒,因為這個地方鮮有人為照明。

圍繞著你的積雪弱化了周遭的噪音,當你沉浸在暖和的水中,你唯一能聽到的是水流從上方的溫泉流瀉下來的聲音。
