Snowmass is technically a mountain, and a mountain ripe for skiing! It’s part of the Aspen/ Snowmass ski complex, just above Snowmass Village, and is known for its wide cruising runs and family friendly reputation. Most of the best places to stay in Snowmass offer ski-in-ski-out facilities.
There’s plenty of terrain to explore on this mountain, there are several terrain parks, mogul runs, cross country skiing routes and a number of spots known for their extreme skiing potential. And Snowmass has the greatest vertical drop of any US ski field - in its big bowl, The Cirque.
Snowmass is also connected to Aspen and Basalt by groomed trails.
Snowmass is also a great destination in the summer, with some of the lifts still running to connect people to the golf courses, bike trails and walking trail heads.
There’s a big black bear population around the Village. And Snowmass is also well known in the field of palaeontology - this is where the Snowmastadon site is; a fossil field packed with the fossils of mammoths, mastodons, bison, camels, a ground sloth and a Pleistocene horse.
The resort can get incredibly busy during peak periods, so if you want to make sure of a room in one of the best places to stay in Snowmass, do yourself a favour and plan well ahead.
