Finding something to do in Snowmass Village is never hard, although choosing between so many great options can be. You’ll want to come back year after year—that’s a given. But the unending activities, unmatched beauty of the fall, winter, summer and spring, options for all ages, and easy access to it all will have you coming back season after season, too.
Start with summer, when the long mountain days and warm nights 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 surrounding Maroon Bells and go for a hike, or ride over 50 miles of scenic single track. A day that starts on horseback can just as easily end at the weekly rodeo.
Summer is spectacular without doubt, but there is seldom scenery so remarkable as that of the golden Aspen trees in early fall. Cooler climates, quiet trails, and wandering wildlife make this the ideal time to escape to Snowmass Village for a peaceful Rocky Mountain retreat.
And then of course—winter. Ranked #1 overall resort by Transworld Snowboarding Magazine, the sheer volume of Snowmass demands repeat visits to experience the iconic terrain in its entirety. Whether this is your first day on the slopes or you’ve been sliding on snow since you took your first steps, Snowmass’ cruisers, glades, steeps, terrain parks and halfpipes beg the question, “Can it possibly get any better than this?” The answer is a resounding 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 exciting whitewater as snowmelt hits the Roaring Fork, Arkansas, and Colorado rivers. Mountain meadows are in full bloom and concert series kick off. You’ll hear a lot of hooping, hollering, laughing, and choice exclamations in Snowmass Village throughout the year, but it’s a near guarantee that I’m bored will not be among them.
