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.

THERE ARE FOUR MOUNTAINS ALTHOUGH ONLY SNOWMASS WILL EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS

While Aspen is a wonderful ski town, the mountain is small and I become tired doing the same runs over and over. For skiing, nothing in the region beats Snowmass. I did find the eateries at Snowmass to be limited, but I travel to ski.
Similar to Aspen, you can spend a maximum of 1/2 day at Buttermilk and the Highlands, or just ski Snowmass at every level.

Snowmass and Aspen trip was tremendous

Excellent rental, walk out back to the slopes, we had 4 guys in a 2 bedroom & loft with 3 bathrooms. Would rent again if we go back. The shuttle service was great as most to the units are on a incline and they pick you up and drop you off anywhere in Snowmass.

Best resort ever!!

Snowmass resort is an excellent ski resort for families. The ski school is second to none. The restaurants are wonderful and conveniently located.

Snowmass great

The Snomass mountain, terrain, lifts, grooming, etc. were perfect for an intermediate skier. No complaints. On mountain lunch choices good, Gwyn's being the best, and Elk being the worst because way too crowded. We should have stayed away from Aspen. We are not partiers, and was very, very disappointed that when we went to check out Little Nell for a quiet drink, we found middle-aged and over the hill people drinking, dancing, to extremely loud music (at 5:00 pm), right near the lobby. If I were Little Nell I'd try to tone this down a bit because it was, quite frankly, disgusting and very ashamed that children could witness the behaviour of these people. Bottom line: I would go back to Snowmass in a second, and will stay away forever from low-class Aspen and places like Little Nell. Oxymoronic, but that's what I felt. Grow up Aspen.

Beautiful ski runs all over the mountain

Ski runs were in great form. We had not been back to Snowmass and we were pleasantly surprised with the renovations in the restaurants, ski lifts, the village itself. Will certainly look forward to going back soon.
Everything worked smoothely with Ski.com bookings and reservations.

SNOWMASS

We have ben visiting for over 25 years. Snowmass only gets better. The crowds are small, the runs are long and the residents are super friendly. The expansive mountain is easy to navigate and it's like skiing multiple mountains. We have lied all over the US and continue to revisit snowmass. It's 15 min from the airport and fantastic for kids.

Fantastic vacation at a great Family Friendly Place.

Snowmass, while close to Aspen, is a unique and amazing place. The skiing is fantastic and it has runs for all different types and levels of skiers. It has ski school for small children through adults and is VERY family friendly. We have been there twice now and we plan on going back again next year.

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.
