Just outside your door is a place where 12,510 feet of mountain awaits exploration. Where chasing down 4,406 feet of vertical rise gets the adrenaline pumping and the only thing that can top the exhilaration of tearing up 3,132 acres of terrain is the anticipation of taking one of 21 lifts back up to do it all over again. While traveling over 90 trails of incredible snow, it becomes clear why they call this adventure Snowmass.
Discover the beauty of these majestic Rocky Mountains and the thrill of outdoor adventure. Snowmass is home to Snowmass Ski Resort - the second-largest ski resort in Colorado. Offering an abundance of beginner groomed trails, intermediate-to-expert ski runs and the best terrain parks and half-pipes, Snowmass is the skier and snowboarder's paradise.
But incredible skiing and snowboarding are not the only reasons to visit Snowmass. When the sun heats up, this four-season Colorado resort offers world-class golfing, mountain biking, hiking, hot air balloon rides, paragliding, fishing, horseback riding, white water rafting and spectacular wildlife viewing.
On the mountain or around the village, Snowmass has you covered for casual and fine dining, shopping and exciting nightlife. And just nine miles from downtown Aspen, experience everything this chic, urban community has to offer.
Whether searching for epic powder days, amazing hiking trails or to simply cozy up to a fire and admire the breathtaking views, the hectic world slips away as you discover how relaxing life can be.
Snowmass is home to the Mammoth Ice Age Discovery. In October 2010, Snowmass Village became famous for something other than skiing and its beauty. Snowmass now holds a mark of archeological significance with more than 4,800 fossils found right in our back yard- this find was so significant National Geographic wrote an article on it and created a television special.
