One of the four resorts in the Aspen ski region, Snowmass is a little further out than Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk, but it has plenty to offer families, couples, friends, and solo skiers of all abilities. Snowmass holiday rentals also make a great summer holiday choice, thanks to the great range of activities available, and the lovely weather and views.
Snowmass is huge – over 3,300 acres of skiable terrain – and high up – around 12,500 ft at the summit – so you can expect minimal queues and plenty of snow. Over half the slopes are beginner to intermediate rating, but expert skiers can push themselves with a range of mogul runs, couloirs, off-piste and unprepared terrain, double diamond (extreme) slopes. There are also three terrain parks of varying difficulty levels to practice tricks.
Whether your children can ski or not, they'll be catered for with a Snowmass holiday rental. There's The Treehouse, a great ski school, and outdoor activities such as mountain tours, snowmobile tours and snowshoe tours. Friday night is Ullr Night, in honour of the Norse god of snow, featuring skating, sledding, a bonfire, music and dance, and much more. Snowmass and Aspen have over 100 bars and clubs, so unless you'd rather settle down in your Snowmass holiday rental after a day on the slopes, you won't run out of après ski options!
