4 Reasons You Need to Ski Snowmass this Season
With 10+ world-class mountain resorts in Colorado, it’s easy to be overwhelmed when deciding where to shred – let us help narrow it down. Snowmass Village is home to some of the best snow and skiing in North America with your choice of cruisers, glades, steeps, terrain parks and halfpipes. Here are 4 reasons you should make it #1 on your winter list.
More of Everything – While you may think of Snowmass as Aspen’s little brother, in reality, it’s actually quite the opposite. They have 94 trails totaling 150 miles, 21 chairlifts, and three terrain parks and pipes to explore. That’s almost 20 more trails than Aspen and more than double the mileage to cover. With 14,000-foot vertical peaks (the most in the country) and ski terrain spread over 3,332 acres, your dream snow day, week, or season awaits.
OMG that Backdrop – With 2.3 million acres of national forests behind the mountain, you’ll truly feel like you’re one with nature looking at that breath-taking landscape. Developed by ranchers in the early 1900s, beautiful Snowmass mountain is set to a backdrop of vibrant creeks, rivers and valleys that is remote yet central, with all the amenities you could want in a perfect powder day.
Just You and the Mountain – Snowmass is where you go if you want fresh trails all to yourself. Worried about crowds during the holiday season? There is no such thing as high season in Snowmass. Averaging just 2 people per skiable acre year-round, don’t waste your day waiting in lines elsewhere – make them.
95% of the Lodging is Ski-in/Ski-out – The one advantage of being a “small” town? Convenience. No busses from parking lots miles away, no long treks carrying gear, just more of what you want – time on the slope.
