Finding something to do in Snowmass Village is never hard, although choosing between so many great options can be. Each season has its own special flavor and mountain town lure. You’ll have to come back year after year if you want to explore it all—that’s a given.
Start with summer, when the long, sunshine-filled mountain days provide the perfect setting for packing in multiple activities. Ride the rapids of the Roaring Fork River or enjoy the legendary fishing from its banks. Heed the call of the nearby Maroon Bells and head out for a hike or ride over 50 miles of scenic single track. A day that starts with a hot air balloon ride can just as easily end at the weekly rodeo.
The lush greens of the mountain scenery are hard to beat, but fall does an admirable job by turning the surrounding mountains a fiery shade of aspen leaf gold. Cooler climates, quiet trails, and migrating wildlife make this the ideal time to escape to Snowmass Village for a peaceful Rocky Mountain retreat.
And then of course there’s winter. Ranked #1 overall resort by Transworld Snowboarding Magazine, the sheer volume of Snowmass demands repeat visits to explore the iconic terrain in its entirety. Whether you’re new to the sport or have been sliding down the slopes since you took your first steps, Snowmass’ cruisers, glades, steeps, terrain parks and halfpipes beg the question, “Can it possibly get any better?” The answer is yes when you consider that the adventure doesn’t stop at last chair. Nordic trails abound, the Snowmass Ice Age Discovery Center (open year-round) features a variety of programming and exhibits, and ice climbing is sure to give your adrenaline a boost.
Spring arrives with the promise of long days on the river as snowmelt hits the Roaring Fork, Arkansas, and Colorado rivers. Mountain meadows burst into bloom, and Snowmass’ legendary concert series kicks off. You’ll hear a lot of hooping, hollering, laughing, and choice exclamations in Snowmass Village throughout the year, but we guarantee that “I’m bored” isn’t likely to be one of them.
