Telluride, Colorado

Snowdrifts, ski lifts and ... spaghetti squash? Yes, this Colorado town offers more than your average fare for winter sports enthusiasts looking for an energy-boosting dose of protein. A vegan ramen at the subtly hip There Bar hits the spot after a day on the slopes, and a Mexican eatery called La Cocina de Luz specializes in fresh, locally sourced ingredients, a generous plant-based menu and an organic juice bar. As one visitor put it, "mucho vegan-friendly."
