Aspen Snowmass Ski Resort

Aspen Snowmass is a fantastic all-round resort that offers world-class facilities and a great experience. While Aspen is often praised for its rich and famous visitors, it’s really known for its vast amount of terrain and Colorado powder that are available.

Snowmass is the exception to the rule, and each Aspen ski resort has its own charm. But it’s the Aspen Skiing Company’s 4 ski areas, plus the many attractions of Aspen, that makes the place unique.

Aspen Snowmass is actually a combination of four areas of Aspen and Snowmass Village. Together, the four mountain ranges of Snowmass Mountain, Aspen Mountain and Aspen Highlands cover an enormous amount of terrain that rivals Vail’s size.

Aspen Snowmass offers a huge ski area covering 5,527 acres. There are 362 trails that run 319 miles, 41 lifts and many terrain parks. There are many trails for all levels of riders, including beginner, intermediate, expert, and advanced. Aspen has many groomed trails including powder bowls and moguls as well as tree runs and gated backcountry skiing.

The elevation at the base is just above 8,100 feet and the elevation at its highest point is just over 12,500. The new $10.7 million-dollar quad chairlift has been opened. It replaces the Big Burn lift. You’ll find new restaurants, infrastructure improvements, and shops at the base. There has been an increase in snowmaking capacity and improvements to high-altitude lifts.

Snowmass Village is located at the base of the mountain and has a traditional atmosphere. It features pedestrian-only streets that are lined with shops, restaurants, and other amenities. If you are planning to ski at Snowmass, this is the ideal place to base yourself.

Snowmass began a tradition of providing free s’mores every day between 3:30-5:00 at the Base Village fire pits, and at the Snowmass Mall.

Aspen may be the place for you if shopping is more your thing than skiing. The streets are lined with famous brand names, and complemented by the best boutiques in the country. Kemo Sabe is a premier retailer of handmade cowboy boots, custom-fit hats and other accessories.
