After a few days in the mountains, you'll get a little tired of musty carpets and places serving mediocre chicken-fried steak. That's why Tropicali is a refreshing switch-up. This tiki-themed poke spot is decorated with palm leaf wallpaper, tiny hula dancers, and bubbling fountains—the kind of stuff that boosts winter serotonin levels. Snowboarders pile in to order solid poke bowls, fruit smoothies that taste like virgin tropical cocktails, and spicy jerk chicken that gets your blood pumping. Also, it's owned by two incredibly friendly brothers from Kauai, whom you'll hear yelling over the intercom, "Aloha Kelsey, your order just hit DA BEEEACH."
