Traveler(s)

Annually ranked as one of North America’s top ski destinations for families by all of the ski magazines, Snowmass specializes in providing an unparalleled experience for families. With a long list of kid- and teenager-centric activities and attractions, there’s no question that Snowmass is a family ski resort. With varied terrain and a seemingly endless array of ski in, ski out accommodations, and plenty of dining, après and nightlife hotspot, a Snowmass ski vacation is also great for skiers of all walks of life, not just families. 

To learn more about the Snowmass ski vacation experience, watch Ski.com Vacation Guide video below.

Ski Snowmass

One of the biggest reasons that Snowmass is reputed as the perfect resort for a family ski trip is in large part to its 25,000-square-foot Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center. This state-of-the-art facility is the hub for all things children, and with a several perfect areas solely devoted to beginner skiers, including the new Elk Camp Gondola. For a groomer-loving intermediate skier, Snowmass is paradise. The cruisers at Snowmass are meticulously manicured every night (and some are groomed at noon every day), and for those looking to challenge themselves there are many different areas for intermediates to hone their skills on. Expert skiers looking to test themselves will find cliffs to drop, tight trees to navigate and fresh powder throughout the more than 3,300 acres of skiable terrain at Snowmass. 

Downtown Aspen

Although Snowmass is located just a few miles from downtown Aspen, a Snowmass ski vacation has its own feel and experience independent of its famous neighbor. But, if you want to see what the hype surrounding downtown Aspen’s dining and nightlife is all about, hop on the free bus that runs regularly between Snowmass and Aspen.

Long runs, short lines, great ambassadors

Snowmass is my favorite ski resort in CO. The lines in April are practically non-existent and the runs are super long, wide and diverse. The Snowmass/Aspen ambassadors are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and fun to ski around with. Snowmass Village is fun for an afternoon and downtown Aspen is a short 10 min drive away and offers more dining choices and diversity.

Epic Vacation

9 night vacation. Last plane landed due to high winds. So thankful. First three days out were severe clear and warm temps. What better way to start our trip. Then we got 7 inches of snow one day and 3 the next. Epic conditions. Mountain was not crowded and what a treat that was compared to NE skiing. We were 2 blocks from the Village and enjoyed trying the various restaurants. The bus system is spot on and that was great not having to rent a car. A memorable trip and we plan on returning for perhaps a month the next time! Whooohooo!

Three days of skiing intermediate trails on Snowmass mountain.

Snow conditions were great, with plenty of excellent trails to keep us busy. Ski Butlers was very good in delivering and setting up rented ski equipment.

Best ever family holiday!

Snowmass is the perfect resort to ski with children. The ski school and instructors are brilliant and there are so many runs to choose from. Our boys (4 and 7) had a ball - both were riding the village express to the mid station by the end of the holiday. Great restaurants too and the free bus service is amazing!

Snowmass

Colorado's best kept secret, Snowmass is a wonderful mountain for the moderate to expert skier, not so much for the beginner as green runs are very limited. The mountain offers a huge terrain so the skiers are spread out enough that there is rarely a lift line of any significance. Our group prefers the mountain to Vail. The town scene is a little quiet but there is adequate offers of restaurants for any budget.

If you are thinking about taking a ski vacation over any major school break holiday and have not considered the Snowmass ski resort and Aspen, you really should. If you are driving from Denver, the extra few hours you spend traveling in the car will be regained by shorter lift lines, shorter restaurant waits and you will be rewarded with fanatically groomed slopes. If you are flying, the extra expense can sometimes be made up by not paying for airport transportation from Aspen airport to Aspen or Snowmass. Plus, the Aspen airport is the most convenient airport of any ski resort. Make your life easier by shipping your luggage and renting ski and snowboard equipment. With early fall snowstorms paving the way for a snowy winter, you should be tempted by now. Book your trip to Aspen/Snowmass as far in advance as possible to take advantage of discounts and best availability.

I love Snowmass. It has something for absolutely everyone. With 3,128 acres and wide cruiser runs, it is such a blast. There is also extreme skiing terrain, mogul runs, and gladed terrain. Snowmass has several terrain parks and is very family friendly.The Treehouse Kids Adventure Center, for example, with its “parents free” zone, will keep the kids entertained and happy so mom and dad can have a break. Snowmass was designed to be a ski-in/ski-out resort and it has a large inventory of lodging right on the slopes. The resort is owned and operated by the Aspen Skiing Company, so I can ski all 4 of the Aspen area resorts on one ski pass. These include Snowmass, Aspen, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk. More skiing than anyone can tackle in one vacation! Call me today and let’s discuss a trip to Snowmass.
