Sure you can earn bragging rights skiing or riding on Snowmass’ fabulous slopes. But there are many (many!) other ways to play your day away that are equally awesome. Skinny cross-country skis, or lightweight snowshoes, can transport you to a winter wonderland of silent meadows and snow-shrouded forests, via 60 miles of cross-country trails. Rather ride? You’ll howl with joy as a team of Krabloonik’s Alaskan huskies pull you (tightly tucked into a two-person dogsled) through pristine Snowmass backcountry, then back to the rustic restaurant for lunch or dinner.
The fun doesn’t stop once the sun goes down. One of our most popular events, Moonlit & Starlit Treks happen every full moon and new moon. Trek around the Snowmass Golf Course by the light of the moon and stars using cross-country skis, snowshoes or stabilizers and stop along the way for hot cococa and cookies. Complete your one-of-a-kind adventure with dinner at Black Saddle Bar & Grille. Also, check out Ullr Nights, where friends and family take a gondola ride to Elk Camp for activities such as tubing, riding the new Breaktaker Coaster, snowbiking and more.
Want to get in touch with your inner athlete – indoors? Pump some iron, roll out a yoga mat, or test your mettle on the climbing wall, at the Snowmass Village Recreation Center. Bowling at Slopeside Lanes is always a fun way to roll. And you can always burn off some calories power shopping at Snowmass’ locally owned galleries and boutiques.
Then again, you can simply bliss out at one of Snowmass’ dreamy spas, like the 7,000 square foot Spa at Viceroy Snowmass, which specializes in therapies inspired by the Ute Indians, the resort’s earliest ancestors. The Snowmass Club Fitness and Spa and The Spa at The Westin Snowmass Resort offer full menus of wellness-infused spa treatments and services as well. No matter how you play it, there’s no better place to spend a day than Snowmass.
