Snowmass Ski Holidays

USA

The largest of Aspen’s four mountains, Snowmass is an intermediate’s paradise with quiet slopes and very dependable snow.

Snowmass has more than 3,000 acres of local terrain, while Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Aspen town are a free shuttle ride away. The views of the surrounding high desert are spectacular and, being further from Denver, the slopes relatively quiet.

There's a huge amount here for intermediates, with pristine trails running through the treeline. We love the easy access to powder bowls and glades, and Snowmass ski holidays are a good option for families too, with childcare at The Treehouse Kids Adventure Center.

A relaxed alternative to glamorous Aspen, everything is on-hand in the purpose-built village. Nightlife is low key but there are some great local bars and restaurants. For more entertainment, Aspen town is 20 minutes away on the shuttle - or for more variety, Vail or Breckenridge make great additions for a Colorado Ski Safari.

"The largest of Aspen's four Mountains, Snowmass is the best intermediate area I have skied in North America, yet with easy access powder bowls. Almost all accommodation is ski-in ski-out, making it a fantastic family option. Definitely worth the additional travel time to get away from the crowds."
