With 3,332 acres of terrain, a vertical rise of 4,406 feet, 94 trails and 21 chairlifts, Snowmass continually ranks at the top of North American ski resorts. The variety of terrain is incredible, drawing hard core steep & deep types, as well as neophytes. Snowmass fulfills its reputation as a family mountain, with pipes and parks for the adventurous souls, blue groomers for the solid intermediates and delightful, scenic green runs for the beginners.

Besides the outstanding trails for skiers and snowboarders, Snowmass has a variety of other activities for Rocky Mountain aficionados. Here’s a quick overview.
