Snowmass, Colorado

At Snowmass, you could spend your entire trip skiing and riding its terrain without covering the same ground twice. From the choice expert terrain of Burnt Mountain Glades, High Alpine and the Cirque, to the long blue groomers and impressive beginner facilities for newcomers, it is an easy choice. With a constantly evolving mix of rails, jumps and transitions, over 100 features in total – including a 22 foot Zaugg-cut Superpipe – Snowmass has earned its reputation as one of the best snowboarding resorts on the planet.

For thrills off the slopes, look no further than the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster. Riders will wind their way through over a mile of forest on an elevated track at high speed. The all-new Snowmass Base Village boasts a five-story indoor climbing wall, a village plaza with ice-skating rink, new retail, and The Collective, a building that offers a collection of art, music, culture and activities. Taking a day off from the slopes? Explore the more than 60 miles of snowshoe trails around Aspen, Snowmass and Basalt. Snowshoeing is a great way to see the alpine forest lands.
