Snowmass has something for everyone

Base Village

Discover why Snowmass, Colorado has been voted the number six ski resort in the United States by readers of SKI Magazine. Already known as a skier and snowboarder paradise, the newly upgraded Snowmass Village raises the bar on the mountain experience by offering first-class services, well-appointed residences, luxurious spa facilities, additional ski-in, ski-out access, 25,000-square-foot family-friendly Treehouse Kids' Adventure Center and 64,000 square feet of new shops, pubs and restaurants - all connected to the upper village by Sky Cab.

  • Village Express Lift - The Village Express six-passenger lift replaced the Fanny Hill chairlift to transport you in only 9.5 minutes from the bottom of Fanny Hill to the top of Sam's Knob, with a midway unloading station for those wishing to access beginner terrain. Village Express accommodates 2,800 people per hour, is 10,057 feet long and has 2,174 vertical feet of rise.
  • Sky Cab Gondola - Like an elevator on cables between two retail centers, this fast and fun, six-passenger gondola transports riders between the Snowmass Village Mall and the new Base Village in only two minutes.
  • Elk Camp Gondola - A new 8-passenger, high-speed gondola is replacing the Funnel chairlift. Traveling from Base Village to Elk Camp Meadows in 7.5 minutes, the gondola provides access to the Elk Camp, Alpine Springs and Burnt Mountain areas of Snowmass. Comfortable cabins transport 2,800 people per hour over 8,560 feet, with 1,360 vertical feet of rise.
  • Coney Terrain Park - Planned improvements for the superpipe and terrain park on Coney Glade include a new and improved terrain park and halfpipe area, with new hit features and additional snowmaking.
  • Assay Hill Realignment - The Assay Hill chair on Snowmass will be realigned to give easy access to the angle station on the Elk Camp Gondola at the base of Funnel. It will be upgraded from a fixed-grip double to a fixed-grip quad, allowing beginners easier unloading.
  • Elk Camp Meadows - This major on-mountain activity center at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola will include a beginner's ski park with a six-acre protected learning area on gentle terrain. Pending approvals, Elk Camp Meadows could include a wide variety of winter and summer activities, such as a skating pond, Tube Town, snowshoeing, mountain biking, snow biking, sleigh rides, horseback riding, fishing, camping, nature centers, climbing walls, trampoline bungies, paintball, mountain boarding and more.

In addition, the Wood Road Bridge over the ski back trail and the new Funnel trail skier bridge over Wood Road will be completed and usable this winter. 


Located across from The Treehouse and mere steps from the Village Express chairlift, Base Camp is very popular destination for those looking to enjoy each other's company in a relaxing and comfortable setting. Offering both indoor/outdoor bar and dining seating. American bistro style cuisine will be served at lunch, après and dinner.

The most luxurious collection of skiwear from Aspen's world renowned boutique, carrying designer brands including Prada, Armani, Chiemsee and Post Card. Cool, hip and current.

Beginner's Magic is a Ski & Snowboard School program offering a complete package of lesson, lift ticket and equipment rental. Four-Mountain Sports has made the rental process even easier by introducing a beginner-specific rental location at the base of the Elk Camp Gondola and providing you with everything you need to get started on the slopes for the first time. The gondola provides easy access to the new Elk Camp Meadows learning area.

For clothing and accessories featuring the Snowmass and Snowmass Base Village branding, look no further than Snowmass Style.

Aspen Sports has expanded to bring its trusted and time-honored reputation to the new Snowmass Base Village, where it will provide top-notch ski and snowboard repairs.
