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. 

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.

Customer service was great and my stay was fantastic!

I was attending a conference in Aspen so I took the bus every day from Snowmass to Aspen. It was super convenient to have this option and to save money staying in Snowmass. It was near great restaurants and good hiking. Loved it!

Outstanding skiing - great mountain!

We travelled to Snowmass for Spring Break skiing for a week as a family of 5...all intermediate/advanced skiers. We stayed next to the base of the mountain in the ski-in-ski-out condos at Woodrun. Our entire trip was excellent and Snowmass is one of our all-around favorite ski resorts in the US. It was a 5-star experience and we recommend it highly.

The mountain is very large with a wide assortment of long runs from green to double-black. The terrain is varied and there is a wide assortment of groomed vs. un-groomed runs. The chairlifts and gondolas are numerous, rapidly moving, and lines were very short. The mountain is not crowded, the skiers and staff were all friendly and polite and our entire experience was fun.

The views are truly spectacular...gorgeous views in all directions and a pleasure to ski challenging runs while looking at the gorgeous surroundings.

Food on the mountain is varied and tasty! Many great restaurants to choose from...and our favorite was Gwyns!

We also enrolled in ski school and found the customer support for ski school to be excellent, friendly and helpful and we loved our ski instructor (Lara) who was outstanding, fun and talented and helped all of us improve our skiing considerably!

We loved Snowmass and hope to return soon!

What a trip!!!!

We have taken many family ski trips with our 15 person Gatta family (8 adults,7 kids) but I have to say the Crestwood Condominiums at family friendly Snowmass mountain is by far the best trip overall. Flying into Aspen eliminates the need for any cars, our accommodations are superior, the ski-in ski-out complete with equipment rentals makes everything so easy, and the staff at Crestwood is so helpful with their shuttle and grocery service and always eager to please! Snowmass village was great too.
Everyone agrees THIS trip was the BEST!!!! The Gatta Family

Snowmass has it all

We are so glad we chose Snowmass this year for our ski vacation. We have been to many other areas including Utah and this is our favorite. The dining is great with many different restaurants to choose from. The skiing was phenomenal! There were a lot of people there but it never seemed crowded and the conditions were great. We will be back again for sure. It is a little pricey but what ski resort isn’t these days. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Trip to Snowmass

This year was our fourth year back to Snowmass. 36" of snow fell the week we were there which made the snow sports incredible. Massive snow acreage so you are challenged continuously. Small lift lines so maximum time on the snow.

fun apres ski events especially for kids-- very lively though crowded at times. Ski school was overcrowded and first day was not organized. Mountain as great - skiing was great. Lots of construction in the village - unfortunately.

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.
