Whatever the season, Snowmass is easy to reach, only 6 miles from a nationally served airport with easy international connections, and just 9 miles from Aspen. 

Snowmass Ski Area was voted the No. 1 ski area in Condé Nast Traveler's Reader's Choice awards in 2023 and is the largest of the four mountains that make up the Aspen Snowmass resort, with 4,406 feet of vertical rise and 3,332 acres of parks, pipes, groomers, glades, cliffs and steeps. Snowmass is a mountain loved by many for its variety of terrain, uncrowded slopes, and abundance of ski-in, ski-out lodging. Off-mountain, Snowmass offers a wealth of winter activities such as cross-country skiing, snow tubing, ice skating, an alpine coaster, and a slopeside village brimming with restaurants and shops. 

Summer in Snowmass is nothing short of spectacular. Situated among breathtaking peaks and verdant valleys, Snowmass puts nature’s playground at your doorstep, with more than 80 miles of hiking and biking trails, clear rivers for fishing and rafting, and stunning views as far as the eye can see.
