In the heart of the Colorado Rockies, far from the hustle and bustle of city life, and beyond the crowded weekend getaway towns on the city’s border, lies a true mountain escape. Snowmass, Colorado is a retreat in the ultimate sense of the word, where soulful individuals come to spend time closer to nature, to be inspired, and to reconnect with themselves and their families. Utterly beloved and completely approachable, Snowmass will entice you to explore, discover, and relax.
Snowmass is a year-round mecca of outdoor adventure. With a single lift ticket, skiers and snowboarders can explore four mountains – Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass – over 5,300 acres of total terrain and more than 4,000 feet of vertical rise. Besides the sheer size (you could ski all week at Snowmass alone and not cover the same ground twice), the four mountains that make up Aspen Snowmass appeal to beginners and children just learning to ski, intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders looking for a variety of terrain, and experts seeking a challenge.
Even more mountain adventure awaits among the miles upon miles of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, dogsled rides through forested glades, horse drawn sleigh rides, boutique shopping, world-class restaurants, live music, art exhibits and more.
When the snow melts, the adventure continues with one of the world’s best mountain biking trail systems, an extensive system of maintained hiking trails, road cycling to rival the Tour de France, fly-fishing on unspoiled waters, hot air ballooning, and a calendar so packed with festivals, culinary extravaganzas, and live music that families find themselves booking longer trips each summer they return.
When you are ready for a different type of exploration, the art museums, boutique galleries, and world-class dining of nearby Aspen await. Wander through the shops, linger over a meal, attend a lecture or event focused on innovative environmental policy, or retreat to one of the many world-class spas for services and treatments that will utterly envelope you in bliss.
