About Snowmass

Surrounded by some of Colorado’s most striking mountain peaks, Snowmass Village is a fantastic year-round destination for outdoorsy adventurers. The area boasts some of the best ski and snowboard terrain in the USA, as well as a plethora of superb summer activities for guests of all ages. Accommodation options include everything from funky spots with onsite climbing walls to luxurious lodges offering world-class spas, fit for a whole host of tastes and budgets. Many of the best places to stay in Snowmass promise ski-in/ski-out access — perfect for eager explorers!

Settled more than a century ago by intrepid ranchers, Snowmass and the Brush Creek Valley were home to the USA’s largest winter resort by the 1960s, when the first chairlifts opened. The area has continued to gain popularity as a family-friendly destination, with an ever-expanding network of slopes, terrain parks and trails for breath-taking skiing and snowboarding. The powder-white slopes of trendy Aspen, along with its museums, galleries and restaurants, are also within easy reach.

Come during the summer months for over 90 miles of horse riding, hiking and mountain biking trails, as well as the chance to try golf, fly fishing, zip lining, hot air ballooning and whitewater rafting. Snowmass Village is known for its weekly rodeos, concerts and festivals. History and nature buffs will be curious to discover the famed Snowmastodon site, a fossil field packed with fascinating finds. The mammoths may be long gone, but Snowmass’ black bear population remains.

The mountains can be especially busy during the winter school holidays, so book your trip well in advance to guarantee a room at one of the best places to stay in Snowmass.
