If you’re wondering how well-received Snowmass is by snowboarders, don’t take it from us! Maybe it’s Snowmass’ open glades, where wide arching turns are easy to make and powder stashes are easy to find. Or perhaps it’s the massive 4,406 vertical feet of lift-served terrain and 3,332 acres that ensure that you can rack up the vertical and maximize the laps. With only two people per acre, you’ve got plenty of elbow room. Three terrain parks and two halfpipes provide the perfect angles to catch big air as well. Best of all, although Snowmass has enough terrain to ensure you need never leave, one lift ticket gets you access to Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk (home of the Winter X Games)– you can’t beat the Power of Four.
It’s not just top sports editors who hail Snowmass as king of the hill. Every rider who’s experienced the unending opportunity of Snowmass’ slopes is bound to agree.
