As the name suggests, Snowmass is a world-class ski resort with more than 3,300 acres of massive mountain terrain. In the summer, it's is known for mountain adventure and festivals and special events.

Whatever the season, Snowmass is easy to reach, less than 6 miles from a nationally served airport.

Snowmass Ski Area is the largest of the four Aspen/Snowmass mountains with 4,406 feet of vertical rise and more than 3,332 acres of parks, pipes, groomers, glades, cliffs and steeps. Winter season highlights range from extravaganzas for the holidays and Mardi Gras to weekly Big Air competitions with some of the nation's hottest emerging athletes.

Free family activities include Storytelling and Sing-a-longs by the campfire and the Ice Age Discovery Center where you touch a mastodon tooth, wonder at a half-sized, 6-foot wooden mammoth skeleton and learn the story of the Snowmass Discovery, one of the most important high-elevation paleontological discoveries of our time.

Snowmass is nestled amid some of the most spectacular mountain vistas in Colorado, offering a wealth of culture, summer adventure and alpine mountain charm. Ride the rapids of the Roaring Fork River or enjoy legendary fly-fishing from its banks, heed the call of the surrounding Maroon Bells, catch cowboy culture at the weekly rodeo or tackle the heart-pumping adrenaline of a mountain-biking adventure.

More than 50 miles of hiking and biking trails, an 18-hole Jim Engh-designed golf course, two 18-hole disc golf courses and a renowned arts center provide countless ways to enjoy the summer. Every weekend brings another event, from yoga festivals to Tough Mudder Colorado and Enduro bike races to music festivals — for such a small town, there's an impressive list of things to do.
