This winter at Snowmass, we’ve shifted and pivoted like the rest of you but if one thing has to stay the same… it’s enjoying our winter wonderland! From ice skating to light installations to fireworks, Snowmass offers an assortment of fun, outdoor, socially-distant activities and events.
Back for the second season, Snowmass Luminescence. An interactive art and light display presented by Snowmass Tourism and Aspen Snowmass, this festive activation immerses guests and community members in a dazzling world of light and art.
Skip the Skittles Gondola ride between the Snowmass Mall and Base Village and instead, stroll through The Tunnel, an interactive series of LED illuminated walkways and arches that will ignite the senses.
In addition, experience two large-scale interactive LED installations by acclaimed artists, Submergence by Squidsoup (December 18 – February 28) and Prismatica by Creos and Raw Design (February 1 – February 28). Snowmass Luminescence runs December 18 through February 28 from sunset to 9:00pm daily.
Looking to get off the beaten path for more lights? Check out the new Anderson Ranch Tree Art Installation and Interactive Light Show (say that three times fast).
From December 16, 2020 – January 8, 2021 guests are invited to the Anderson Ranch campus from 4-9pm to walk around 6 commissioned, outdoor installations commissioned by Roaring Fork Valley artists.
This includes tree decorations inspired by everything from molecules to disco and includes a 20,000 interactive Twinkly light installation.
Back for another season, Snowmass Ice Sculptures! Local artist Thomas Barlow has sprinkled instagram worthy sculptures around Base Village and the Mall to help fill your feed with these life size works of winter art. Take things up a notch and download our interactive app Snowmass Mountain Mission to earn points and prizes for the pics you snap!
When it comes to ice skating in Snowmass you have two unique options. The Rink sits at the center of Base Village snuggled next to The Collective and Limelight Hotel Snowmass. Free rentals are back along with Saturday night disco nights and special shows from this year’s ski pass artwork, Friends With You. Fuel up for skating at Mawa’s Crepe shack, newly opened JUS or grab a post-skate sweet treat at Sundae!
The Snowmass Rec Center also has a rink behind their building at Town Park Station. Rinks are open 9am – 8:15pm for free skating or pick up hockey games and are BYOS (bring your own skates). Reservations are required – as are masks – more info or to reserve the rink click here!
Everything from grab-and-go morning fuel, to lunch and apres, to sweet treats like Snowmass S’mores, it pays to plan ahead. With new benches, picnic tables and heated outdoor seating options, dine out around town or opt to take out and take home. New for the Winter 2020/21 season, The Village Tasting Room and JUS in Base Village along with newly branded Slow Groovin’ Chophouse on the Mall and High Alpine Marketplace on the mountain.
… and finally, who doesn’t love fireworks!? January 30, February 13 and March 27 drive-in, grab an extra layer and a headlamp to uphill, or picnic from your slopeside patio with your tribe while we light up the sky.
