Snowmass, Colorado Hot

Snowmass ColoradoSnowmass Resort in ColoradoSnowmass, snuggled way up in the Roaring Fork Valley just minutes downroad from Aspen, CO, is an ideal resort area for families, couples, groups, and skiers and riders of all ability levels. Not only is it beautiful, secluded, private, and family friendly, but the resort also boasts the most vert of any resort in the country, with 4,406 vertical feet of elevation gain and more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain.

Twenty-one chairlifts (including a gondola and eight high speed lifts) access 91 trails spread like a bell-curve from beginner to expert. The resort even has three terrain parks and a Super Pipe (22-foot halfpipe), for the kid in you or the snowboarders in your family. And Snowmass covers some of the most dramatic scenery Colorado has to offer. From the top of the ski area one can gaze at a number of Colorado’s highest and most dramatic peaks including several “Fourteeners.”

One of the most prestigious ski schools in the country, a world-class Kids Adventure Center, and nine on-mountain restaurants make Snowmass a true global destination for skiers and snowboarders of all types. Families come back year after year to experience the hospitality and expertise of the resort staff. A newly remodeled base area continues to improve and enhance visitors’ experience in the valley.

The season runs from November 25 to April 10, 2011. Rentals are available at the Four-Mountain Sports/D&E Ski and Snowboard Shop on the Snowmass Village Mall, Four-Mountain Sports at Two Creeks, Beginner's Magic at base village and Four-Mountain Kids at The Treehouse Kids' Adventure Center. The new Viceroy Snowmass hotel is the signature hotel of the renovated base area. For reservations contact 877-682-7736.
