Superb!5 / 5Oct 07, 2017
Snowmass has something for everyone. It has plenty of flatter beginner terrain, lots of intermediate terrain, as well as some expert terrain here and there. If you are in the Aspen/ Snowmass area, Snowmass will probably have the most to offer for most people.
Very Good!4 / 5Jul 30, 2013
I thought that the resort was very family friendly, low key, extremely accessible for skiing, and very fairly priced
Poor!1 / 5Apr 24, 2013
Varied and hugh but too crowded
Poor!1 / 5Apr 06, 2013
Snowmass has a very "commercial" setting at the bottom of the mountain with a back area that contradicts its bottom mountain atmosphere. It doesn't feel very down to earth as far as "people welcomed here."
Average!3 / 5Nov 27, 2012
No need to rent a car. Lodging is close enough to walk to the lifts or take a shuttle bus.
Very Good!4 / 5Oct 03, 2012
loved the variety of terrain! Kept snowing every day we were there adn so many hidden stashes of bounds, out of bounds...just great!
Superb!5 / 5Jul 30, 2012
We learned to ski at Snowmass and my instructor was very good and we have gone back there several more times. We like the bus system, the slopes and accommodations
Superb!5 / 5Jun 19, 2012
We've only been there once, but we remember so many good cruising runs that were perfect for both of us--one a low-end blues skier and one an advanced-blues skier. We also liked the place we stayed: roomy, convenient location for a decent price.
Superb!5 / 5Jan 04, 2012
3 times in Aspen/Snowmass, and they were 3 of my top 4 ski trips.
Very Good!4 / 5Jul 25, 2011
Best ski-in/ski-out resort! Great skiing during the day, and Aspen is just down the road for great nightlife.
