We loved being able to ski right on and off the slopes from the Mountain Chalet. We liked that it had plenty of eating choices that were in walking distance.... More

Loved every minute of it and would recommend it to any skier or snowboarder I know ! Would go again in a flash !... More

Great mountain and probably a bit overlooked by the Aspen crowd. This is my favourite of all 4 on the Aspen pass. Before I skied it, I was led to believe that it was for families and intermediates., while advanced skiers went to Highlands. I was happy to find that there is actually a heap of advanced terrain if you spend some time seeking it out,... More

Great atmosphere with four mountains nearby. Love the wide open spaces at Snowmass. But if you know the resort, there are great bump runs through the trees and all kinds of places to find a little untracked powder.... More

Snowmass is a huge mountain that is fun for the entire family. We stayed at a resort on the mountain, which was nice for ski in and ski out. It was easy getting on and off lifts and I liked the benches at the top of the lifts. I snowboard and the benches made it nice for strapping in. You can take the buses, for free, to any of the other aspen... More

Snowmass is where it's at. Everyone else head to Aspen because, let's face it, that's where the tourists go and will continue to go. So fluffy and quiet; this place rocks!

Big resort with terrain for all skill levels. great destination resort as there is a lot of onsite accommodation.If its not a powder day i like to start with 12 minute laps on sam's knob then work my way across the mountain to big burn and cirque. On a powder day you can do laps through trees on burnt mountain using elk camp lift
